hi girls, could really do with your advise. i'm due babs on the 12th june and thinking of having the christening on the 6th aug. so depending on when babs makes his appearance he'll be around 6 - 8 weeks old or so. i've found a dress in monsoon that i would love to wear for the christening. i would have worn a size 14 from monsoon before babs and my wedding last june! i'm aware i've put on weight from being pregnant so was thinking i'd buy the dress in a 16??? the dress is only new in so i'm hoping they wont fly off the shelf!! what would you do? go for the 16 now so i'd have the dress or hold off till after babs and pray that the dress will still be there??? thanks ladies!

Tough one! Id def go a size bigger though as least if its too big you might be able to get it taken in?

I agree with the others. My mam bought me a dress(size14) when I was eight and a half months I wore it for her christening 5months later
