Ciga- I went on vacation up in the Adirondacks a few summers ago and it was apparently black fly season. They are awful!!
Glad everything looks good with the procedure, Guppy!
I'm breaking out on my back :-/ Reallllllly attractive.
Congrats Shiloh! I know how you feel. I felt like I could finally breathe once I saw that all the right parts were in all the right places.
I am getting so annoyed looking for a maternity bathing suit. I always wore bikinis before DS but I just became less comfortable in them after. I don't have a ton of stretch marks but there are enough around my belly button to make me a bit more shy and as my belly is growing now they are getting darker again. Anyway, I have been searching ebay for days in search of a not too dowdy tankini or something. If I was willing to shell out the cash I would just buy the Gap or the Isabel and Ingrid ones that I really like but I just can't warrant paying $50+ for a suit I'll only wear for one summer especially when I splurged and bought myself a new beautiful and not cheap one-piece for regular non- pregnant life last summer. Uggh. This would be so much easier if I felt comfortable wearing a bikini. It has been such a strange transition for me going from being totally comfortable in my body to being kind of shy about it.
I found a cute ruffled tankini-ish swim top at Walmart that has a tie at the back and neck, and the rest of the fabric is loose and flowing so it should lay nicely on my belly no matter how big I get. Unfortunately they didn't have any matching bottoms so I'm hoping I can find something at Target. I'd really like it if I could find little boyshort bottoms but they're so hard to find! I was a bikini gal before too, but I'm feeling cellulite-y and not so confident these days.
i signed up for mother/child swim lessons in july with my 2 year old at the local pool. i'm not sure what i was thinking. i do have some skirted bottoms but i don't know that i have belly ready tops. i'll probably just go to st. vinny's (second hand catholic charity store) and get some random top to kind of match my bottoms (maternity tankini?)!
