I can't believe I'm posting these pics, but pregnancy is supposed to be a beautiful thing right, lol? I was nervous someone might mistake me for a beach ball while I was over in Naples.
Shopping for a swimsuit to accommodate Bump 2.0 was such a challenge. I was over the whole shopping experience and was prepared to give up the beach experience all together. Apparently there is a very limited selection of affordable maternity swimwear and what is affordable is grossly unflattering. Every suit I tried on frustrated me more and more. I think I may have found my calling in life. In my book $50 and above is not "affordable" for a swimsuit that you're not going to wear that much - at least for my budget. Just when I gave up and my family was cashing out at Target, I spotted this little number in the regular section. I didn't have time to try it on since they were paying already, so I grabbed a size XL and hoped for the best. Luckily it fit once I tried it on at home and I actually have some room to grow.I love the beach! Playing around in the water with my family was so much fun! It also made my back feel so much better. This kid is growing and doing a number on me, lol. By the way, I'm currently in my 17th week of this pregnancy and am starting to feel some quickening. I didn't feel it this early with Jolie, this baby seems to already be more active. It's almost time to confirm 2.0's gender - keep voting - Boy seems to be winning by a landslide!!!
