    Aww :( I didn't even bother looking at the bridal store everyone went to because I couldn't afford them. I've had a job since I was 14 and busted my ass when my dad got laid off. I paid for that dress and earned the $800 I needed to go to an art school for a week of classes. It was amazing

    I don't feel like it should be hidden. People will understand and I think trying to hide it would be like you're ashamed.

    Those would be much better.  The original color completely washed you out and blended too well with your undertones.  Deeper colors are the way to go.  Plus, pregnant women always spill stuff on themselves while eating.  There is no way to avoid it unless you wear a huge bib.  Trust me.  All 4 times, my boobs and belly were a catch all for everything.

    My point was that there's a great difference between being 21 weeks and 29 weeks along. And at that point, you are no longer "not very far along".  But thanks for trying to educate me on the development of a pregnancy.

    FFS you are growing a human being inside your stomach, stop being so shallow about being big.
  • Honestly I found 4 dresses in one night at Marshalls. 2 were short and 2 were long. I wore the short ones to his family day and graduation from OCS. I wore one long one for the Officer formal and the other I'm planning to wear to my rehearsal. I spent $70 on all 4 together. And they look really really nice.
