I also went bathing suit shopping this weekend and actually found one and got home with it without having a meltdown!! Again, this may seem simple, but anyone who has ever been 8 months pregnant and tried to find a flattering and fitting bathing suit will understand its a BIG deal:) I had to promise Silas no one would be injured on this outing as he was hesitant to go with me, having previously survived several maternity shopping trips which ended in tears and lots of yelling/blaming him for my predicament and size!!! We actually had a pleasant time and I am now the proud owner of a lovely and huge green jungle print tankini...at least the top half of it anyway!! FYI, they do NOT make bathing suit bottoms for pregnant people in my opinion that you would actually wear or like...but that is a whole other story:) I will be wearing Silas' swim trunks as my bottom half...they definitely provide more coverage:) Needless to say, there will most likely not be any pictures of me in my lovely "whale tarp" as one friend so affectionately calls her maternity bathing suit:) I am hoping as few people have to see me in this thing as possible!!!
