Normally, I wouldn't be caught dead in a bikini. BUT, we keep the hot tub temperature low enough that it's safe for me to sit in, and my one piece suits were squishing my belly and making me very uncomfortable. I looked for an inexpensive maternity suit, but even on ebay they were going for over $40 . . . so instead I bought a bikini for $12. Don't worry, I won't scar your eyes with any pictures, but OH, is it comfy!
I wore it today for the first time and it worked out perfectly. DH did take some pictures of my 31 week belly in the bikini, but those aren't to be shared -- mainly because I look like a beached whale. LOL! I wouldn't wear it anywhere but my own backyard, in front of my immediate family -- but I am glad to have the suit.
Our temps have started to heat up around here and the boys even braved the pool today. I think the water was somewhere around 70 degrees, which is too cold for me, but they paddled around for 20 minutes or so before warming up in the hot tub. I imagine I'll be able to start swimming in a month or so. I need to start looking for a water sling as I imagine we'll be spending an awful lot of time at our pool this summer!
