Bridesmaid Maternity Dress

I Was A Pregnant Bridesmaid, And It Wasn't That Bad

Imagine that your closest friend or sister is engaged and wants you to be her bridesmaid. After thanking her for the honor (and asking who else will be a bridesmaid), you begin to wonder what you're going to have to wear. You delicately ask if she has begun to think of colors and/or styles. Of course, you would be happy to wear "whatever" she chooses, you know she has "impeccable taste," and yet you ask if she wouldn't mind emailing a picture (or two or three) of the dresses she has in mind for you to wear. This was pretty much how it went down when I was my sister's bridesmaid, except for one important detail. About three months into helping her plan the wedding, I started to feel a bit nauseous and was more tired more than usual. I peed on the stick and got two dark lines: Oh my god -- I was pregnant.
