I am excited but know that I will still look pregnant at the time. That being said I don't have a dress appropriate for this type of event. Looking for something that is either a cheap maternity option or something that could be worn to hide the non-baby bump. But again I don't want to spend a lot as it'll be an odd transition time for my body etc. Any thoughts?"
Hi Renae! I'm Found of You, mother of a 2-year-old mini-man and currently 33 weeks pregnant with Boy #2. I found you some dresses! They're all affordable, will hide your Mommy Tummy, and all of them except #9 would probably work for breastfeeding. #1-3 are specifically designed for breastfeeding and accommodating a postpartum pooch, so if you're bringing your new baby and you plan to breastfeed, one of those is probably your best bet.

Found of You here: Rather than find you the perfect LBD, look to me for the perfect accessories! As an accessorizing whiz, I can style your "What do I wear with it?!" clothing, dig up awesome maternity and nursing clothes (I'm a Mommy!), and make your tootsies look perfect in fabulous flats (or pumps, or sandals). Oh, and if you need to give someone (ME!!) a gift, I say buy 'em food and books, and I'd love to help you find just the right stuff.
