    It all depends i mean everyone is different, I had two friends who were pregnant last year 1 did not show at all infact she didn’t find out she was pregnant until she was 6 months gone, but the other started getting big at about 4 months. i would see how you feel a bit closer to the date and if you aren’t comfortable try and find another dress (i know this is easier said than done) 🙂

    I mean there is a chance you can do it, but I think I would play to the safe side and get something more suitable for a baby body. Congratulations on your pregnancy, your wedding just became that much more special! 🙂

    That is a beautiful dress. I am pretty thin and not pregnant and I know that if I ate or drank anything within 24 hours of wearing it, I would show belly in that dress. I do not want to rain on your parade. At all. you will look beautiful. And if you want to show off your cute little blossoming baby bump, this dress would be a wonderful way to do it. I think it would be cute. If your goal is to not show.. A different dress would fit the bill better.

    And congratulations!

    Congrats! I’m afraid that I have to agree with PPs – there’s no way to tell if and how much of a belly you’ll have in three months. (If you google “16 week belly,” you’ll see that some people are tiny and some definitely preggers.)

    You could hold on to the dress, see what happens, and wear it even with a bump, but you’re also risking that it doesn’t fit if it’s as fitted on normal you as it is on the model. It might be safer to exchange it for something that will better hide a bump, or at least provide more room around one. Beautiful dress. I see why you’re conflicted.

    @LadySmurph:  I am 5’3 pre preg I was about 130-135 I am now up 8 – 10 lbs. I am a size 2 jeans but I went up to a 6 for a couple of awkward weeks where I was really bloated. Now I am back down to my “stretchy” 2’s and 4’s. Though by the end of the day I’m unbuttoning them. I am also up 2 cup sizes from an A to a full C. Some ladies take longer to show though. The picture below is at 15 weeks.

    ifKid you can exchange the dress, go see what your other options are. Like pp’s said everyone is different. Of you have a choice to swap it, I would.

    @LadySmurph:  oh thank you! I’m sure it will! I know a lot of ladies on the bee have been pregnant for their weddings! Empire waists, natural waists and ruching tend to hide the bump the most. You can check out the bump threads to see the variety! I think the most definite change will be your bust though. Count on some serious boobage and allow for that! 

    The good news is by 16 weeks you should be out of the first tri and feeling good! Congratulations on the LO!

    You might be able to do with a good seamstress but I’d probably just look into other options. Is your dress at least corset? I’m currently expecting & getting married in September.  I’ll further along then you & freaking outabout my dress. But have been assured by many seamstress that they can work miracles so if you really want to wear your dress (I’m dying to wear mine) I think you can make it happen. Congrats!
