Sara P. wrote, "Hi Outblush! First let me say that I love your site, and all the advice you give us readers! I've seen so many great ideas lately, and am hoping you can help me too.

Thank you so much, this just made my day! Some great options to choose from... I'm leaning towards #1 or #5.

Hey Sara- I think you should go with #1! Love it and I would totally wear that again! (Not to mention that I would wear that not preggo also....)
