Are you 4/5 months pregnant ....I need your advice!


I have a pregnancy/wedding dress dilema. Are or where you showing at 4/5 months?

I've posted my full dilema in my dairy 'Kimtia's Diary' over in IVF diaries.

Hope you can visit and help me out.

Thank you

Kimtia's diary

Kimtia, if you get a dress with a bodice you'll have no chance. Even if you're not 'showing', at 4/5 months you'll definitely be able to feel the bump and won't want to be strapped into a boned bodice. The advice to go for an empire line dress is good. I would also say that it would be a good idea to confide in the wedding dress shop owner; she'll be able to tell you if your chosen dress could be altered if need be.

At 4/5 months you might have a bump similar to the one you can produce by consciously sticking out your tummy as far as it will go. Course, if it just so happened that you were carrying lovely twins it would be impossible to hide under a regular size frock. I suppose it also depends what size, shape and build you are normally as to what you could get away with.

Kimtia - 1st up congratulations on getting wed, very exciting :D

As for showing at 4-5 months, i would say that i was about 4 1/2 months when my bump became noticable (rather than just a belly :snigger:), so agree with Bells an empire line will probably be best, you could also ordering it in a size bigger than they recommend, it can always be taken in to fit.

Good luck with everything
