Memorial Day Bathing Suit Situation

This weekend is our annual Memorial Day celebration with friends at the lake.  Its extra special this year because it is also the host's 30th birthday.  Its usually a 2 day event, with lake days on Saturday and Sunday.  This year I think I will only be up for participating one day, but I don't know which one yet.

The thing I am worried about is the bathing suit situation.  I haven't worn a 1-piece since, well maybe never.  I have a couple of maternity suits a friend gave me, but they are still a little big.  I am considering wearing a bikini but I don't know how I feel about it.  I wore one to the pool last weekend and the friends of a friend that were there did not even realize I was pregnant until I said something.  So I guess its not that obvious.  I just don't want to gross out any of our unmarried guy friends with my exposed belly.  And I don't want to be "that pregnant girl" that still looks like she is partying at the lake.  Even though its kinda good b/c I can drive the boat and the truck home sober!

I even went as far as to google this topic to see what people were saying.  It seems like most guys thought it was kinda weird, but maybe ok for a personal vacation.  There will be hundreds of people at the lake.  So the bump will be on full display.  Thoughts?  Is the bikini inappropriate?  Be honest!

There is zero way I could ever do a bikini pregnant. Zero... But that being said, if you still look like that photo you posted of you and Jessica recently I would not worry a thing about it. Yes, it is noticable to you, but the belly won't be overly noticable to everyone else unless you directly point it out. Just my thoughts! One another note do I get a sneak peak post. LOL :-)

If I were you, I would! You are little and adorable!

However, I am me and now (post baby) will be stuck in tank-kinis forever. :(

Live it up!!! Congrats!! I can't wait to see that pink nursery!!
