Hey Lovely! I have so much to catch everyone up on that I’m a little hesitant as to where to even begin, so here we go. First, this past week was my first official week at home. After a lot of thought due to things happening at my new job and the effect it all was having directly on my health, we decided that some time to myself before the baby comes was just what the doctor ordered. Needless to say any change this big no matter how much you want it is still a large adjustment. I’m trying to find some routine for my days and check some of the millions of things off my to-do list while I can.
We’re officially 3/4s of the way through this pregnancy and the reality of all of that is sinking in. Ergo my very long to-do list and the sense of needing to get all of these done soon. I know I can’t be alone out there in my procrastination and extreme indecisiveness on all of the baby things. The nursery does officially have some things hung in the closet and one strip of the wallpaper. #Progress
All this being said there is still too much to get to in one post, so instead lets talk about clothes. Mainly let’s talk about the need to feel pretty and just as stylish as normal during pregnancy. In my very short experience with all of this, I’ve noticed lots of frumpy looks that basically look like a brown paper sack out there for pregnant women. I had no idea how much effort I’d need to put into shopping for my new figure but I have had a lot of fun with it. I’ve found I can wear things with confidence that I’d have never felt good in pre-baby. Fitted dresses show off a big stomach that I’m rather proud of, its supposed to be there and is a sign of a healthy pregnancy. To be honest with a little extra effort and some serious online shopping, I can honestly say I feel like I’ve looked like myself the entire pregnancy. Here is one more example and this one was a serious bargain! It is actually maternity, but Old Navy is really good about offering a maternity option along side a matching non-maternity. This dress was on clearance for $1.99, that’s right less that $2 for a maternity dress! I’m linking a similar pattern in the same cut which I think was really flattering for my bump and the non-maternity option for those of you not carrying a small human inside of you.
We’ve had a wonderful weekend and I hope you all have as well!
