I have just found out i am pregnant, but i am due to be my sisters bridesmaid and i reakon at a guess i will be about 15 or 16 weeks gone ..the dress is ordered and its way to early to tell anyone yet but i am just fretting a bit that if dress is to small it will be to late to order another ?? I know little to be worrying about ... but i would hate to be puttin stress on my sis !!

The bump's not likely to be a problem at that stage, but keep an eye on your boobs if the dress is tight in the bodice. By 15 weeks I'd gone up about a cup size and a half.

Could you contact the shop directly (and discreetly!) and tell them the situation? They might be able to let you know how long a new order would take, or maybe be able to change your current order for one a size or two larger?

Most people are the same by then, but I was showing quite a bit by 15 weeks and in maternity clothes. Everyone is different

Would you not just tell your sister? If my sister went behind my back to talk to the shop I don't think I'd have been too pleased at all. JMO

Excellent news congratualtions. I know what your saying about not wanting to stress your sis or take anything from her day but I still think I would say it to my sister and just cover yourself..... :lvs

i was very slim when i got preg (on honeymoon-after wedding diet) and was in maternity clothes at 13 weeks. put on tons of weight early. i wouldnt take the chance that you'd fit into the dress anyway. if i were you i'd tell my sister but not the shop yet. they can alter things. i'd rather tell sister than stranger.
