As I'm feeling so sick this morning (and here's me thinking I wasn't doing too bad and now week 12 seems to be my worst yet :o0 ) I thought I'd cheer myself up by thinking of holidays. We are planning a holiday in the sun :o)ll :o)ll in June (will be about 20 weeks please God). What do you think you'd wear -swimsuit or bikini? I wouldn't be too keen on letting it all hang out but I'm wondering if there will be much of a bump by then and if I could get away with a bikini when lying down at least? I know I'll have to be sensible about not getting too hot etc but what's the chances of fitting a bikini at 20 weeks? Totally vain- I told you :o0

happybride let us know how you get on- will definitely bring a bikini anyway. Plaza that's a good idea- might be good if I'm not to confident about letting it all hang out.

I went on hols around the 20 wk mark and planned on wearing a bikini, but when I tried it on it looked terrible, I found the swimsuit gave me a more convincing "pregnant look" and the bikini for some reason just made me look like a slob! Probably depends on your individual bump and the bikini fit though....remember you're not supposed to wear underwired bikinis when pregnant.

I'm hoping to go on hols next month and too am wondering bikini v's tankini...I'll be surely sporting a nice bump by then so my question is a little different (sorry for hijacking). Is it ok to tan the bump?? I remember reading somewhere that you should cover the bump when out in the sun? (again differing advice everywhere!). I'll obviously be wearing factor 30 all over as I know us pregnant ladies are more sensitive to the sun, but up until i read that I was definitely heading in the bikini direction. anyone know?

[quote="babybrain":3tldkdof] Is it ok to tan the bump?? [/quote:3tldkdof] Good question babybrain. I presume as long as you don't get too hot and wear lots of sunscreen. I am really looking forward to getting some sun. I look so pale and washed out since getting pregnant. My DH even said to me the other day your face looks a bit yellow :ooh nice eh?! :o0 I think it's cause I'm so pale underneath my foundation that my make-up just looks too false. Can't wait to get a sun kissed glow.
