I love a new dress, so I'd probably splurge and get it. :)

I bet by 20 weeks you'll have a nice little baby bump, with this being your second baby. I wouldn't think it's too much of a gamble to err on the side of having a maternity dress. Would you have any other nice event to wear it to, later on in the pregnancy? That might make buying it seem more justified....

I totally agree - I am all for a new dress! :) If you have another event to go to (perhaps a New Year's party?) it makes it all the more worth it. Is it a dress that you could wear after pregnancy too?

I went to 3 weddings last summer - 16 weeks, 20 weeks and 24 weeks PG. I wore the same dress to all of them (just changed up the shoes and purses). I was so showing by then, and having the maternity dress helped show it off I think. You know, people could tell I was PG and not just carrying extra weight.

I wanted to attach a photo but it wouldn't let me in the quick reply screen, so here goes.

I say go for it, Mari! Like you said, maybe you could share it with your sisters when they're PG!

I had a black tie gala to go to when I was about 8 weeks PG. Thankfully I wasn't showing much then so the dress I bought right before I got PG fit but I was totally spilling out of it, lol!

Can't wait to see photos of the dress! :-)

Mari - I love what your mom said! Too funny. My mom is the same way and would probably say something very similar. :)

I hope the dress fits well when you try it on. Also, we need pics if you can post some! I'd love to see it, it sounds beautiful.

Kate - You looked fabulous!
