    @Willow1991:  Yay!!  Glad the posture and alterations help.  You are already beautiful in the dress, but now you won’t have to worry about it.

    Agree — you look stunning and not even close to pregnant!

    Just skimmed through the thread so maybe its already been asked, but… are you wearing heels in these pics?  I have the same problem but I think its posture. When I wear heels and stand up straighter, it goes away for the most part.  My dress is the same shape and I’m afraid of having that “bump” too.  I’ll be doing lots of situps for the next 9 months though I’m not sure they’ll help.

    @Willow1991:  I’m pretty sure she means a bustier…

    You look beautiful, but hopefully these alterations will make you feel better in the dress. You look about my size, and I know what you mean about that part of your lower abdomen sticking out and looking like you’ve got a belly even when you don’t. Everyone’s right about the posture thing though. I try my best to keep my shoulders back and it helps a lot, but it’s a hard habit to break.

    You look great actually but I know what you mean I was very thin when I was younger and had the same thing every time I ate anything. It could just be from eating… ya know, a ‘food baby’.
