Sorry if tmi but i have been having a fair amount of discharge throughout pg (25weeks now) which i believe is pretty normal. However, i'm going on holiday and obviously want to wear a bikini but am worried about it looking wet down there (as sometimes i just have gushes of it!)) so it will look like i have weed myself!
Help! Any advice?! :-D

Black bikini?

patterned bikini will definitely be better than a plain one smile

Slimline liner? To be removed discreetly prior to going in the pool/sea, obviously.

I think no problem with bikini. No need to tense about it.

wear a little skirt over the top until you go swimming, or shorts.

Thanks all...as a first timer these things come as a bit of a surprise...i just thought it was every pregnant lady's right to lounge around looking gorgeous in a bikini!! Turns out it's gonna take more thought than that :-D

People would probably think any 'wetness' came from the pool/sea anyway, so I wouldn't worry. Not that I think anyone's gonna be looking THAT closely down there!

I'm going on holiday on Monday and will wear a liner. I normally only go for one swim a day on holiday and just dangle my feet the rest of the time so will just remove it before I get in the water and replace once dry again.

I am going on hols at 32 weeks and was pondering the same dilemma- is it completely verboten for us to wear tampons for an hour or 2?? the smallest little lil-lets for eg? I already have my preggo bikini and it's not patterned, it's a baby blue, so probably not ideal for marks-doh!

The other thing i've been thinking about- you know when they say not to lie on your back post 20 weeks for too long- how long is ''too long''? can i lie on my back on a sunbed for an hour for eg? I'm not going to be doing a heck of an amt of sunbathing but it would certainly be nice to lie out on my back for an hour here and there.. rather than sticking my now large ass out on view by lying on my side.. the joys!!

A well placed sarong for when walking about or draped across bum area when lay down, something light such as chiffon type fabric. Adds to the allure grin

chicamomma I think if you raise the back of the sun lounger up so you're not flat on your back it's better.

Chicmomma I really would not use any tampons whilst pregnant. Use a discreet liner. An infection is not worth the worry.

No one will notice some discharge anyway, any wetness world be put down to swimming. Take a plunge initially and allow yourself to dry in the sun, that way any little leakages would not even be noticed as anything more than you being wet from the pool / sea.
