      OMG!!!!

      I haven't freaked out yet (I think it was major denial) but it is even smaller!!!!

      I'm starting to wonder if they got the order confused or something and took the middle in!

      I took the dress in May 14th and it fit perfectly. I seriously looked like it was made for me.

      June 3rd I had about a 1 inch gap to get the zipper closed. The seamstress said it would go up, but she really didn't want to chance it and break the zipper, so lose 5 pounds and it would be perfect.

      Yesterday, June 10, I went in and I now have a 2-3 inch gap! I've lost 7 f-ing pounds! I don't understand what is going on! I haven't lifted any weights (the seamstress told me not to) and I've lost weight. The problem is my breasts are huge! But then again, they aren't any bigger than they were before. My cup size hasn't changed but my band size has-I now hook on the smallest instead of the middle. I called my OBGYN to see if this could be some sort of hormonal thing and she wants me to take a pregnancy test before she'll write me anything. I CANNOT pregnant and if I am, I'm suing her. I'm on a chemically induced menopause so my body doesn't produce estrogen and I don't ovulate. I am not as worried about the dress as I am about potentially being preggo! That ALWAYS makes me freak out. I panic at the slightest pregnancy symptom and always have.

      So, tonight I go back to see the head seamstress and see what she thinks we can do to fix it. I'll be dammed if I have paid almost $1000 for a dress I cannot wear! And, I can't exchange it for another one because this one has already been hemmed and re-bustled!

        maybe your boobs have grown simply because of your menstrual cycle? (or maybe you don't have one becuase of your meds).

        Can she change the back to take out the zipper and put in a lace up corset instead?

          OMG Erin, I am so sorry! Could they possibly change the back to a corset back, so you have a little more "play" room...that way, if you get there and suddenly the dress is huge (because all of your efforts waited to pay off), it can just be tied tighter?

          Hang in there! I'm sure it will work out, you've got our support!!

            Me too Abbie! I mean I want a baby, but we are NOT ready right now! I'm sure some would think it is selfish to say, but that probably would be the worst thing that could happen to us now.

              When do you have the apt with the dr to find out?

              Got my fingers crossed it's negative!

                  I'm going to run out at lunch and get a home test. Right now I'm waiting for a call back from the Dr. to see if there is anything I can do. I very seriously doubt that I am. Time wise, I would be far enough along I should have noticed by now. I throw up all the time so I can only imagine being preggo. I don't think I'd be lucky enough to escape morning sickness!

                  It's kind of weird and embarassing to have to explain to a nurse that your breasts are enormous and you need a quick fix to make them smaller!

                    isn't there anything you can wear underneath maybe? A special bra?
