Motherhood maternity top justfab shoes

Pregnant in heels.

Motherhood maternity top justfab shoesSo, do I have a story to tell you! I have been hiding the fact that I am pregnant. A fact that I probably wont be able to hide that much longer. I am showing a bit sooner than before, some days i swear it is more than others. Which just could be bloating(yay) or something. But, yeah I am preggers about 10 weeks and almost to my second trimester. Some people choose to wait a bit longer than 10 weeks, some don’t. When I found out with my son, I told all my family sooner than this. Just on the fact if something happened, I wouldn’t feel alone and have someone to talk to. And I was just excited, but now that I am older, I waited a bit. And I was going to wait until my first ultra sound, but my new doctor has not even seen me yet. Something that has me kind of irritated, considering last time I had some issues. Pre-term labor, possible pre-eclampsia, etc, etc. I was on bed rest. You may be asking why switch from my old doctor? Well, insurance. Yeah, they do not take my insurance, at least last time I checked. But, I am going to check this week, and pray I can see my original OB-GYN.

Motherhood maternity top justfab shoesThis pregnancy was planned as was the first, and this one will no doubt be my last. I am good at 2 kids. Even if I have another boy, I am good. Why? I just want 2 kids,that is it. And also I am one of those who hates being pregnant. SHOCKER. I am not one who just adores being pregnant…and blah,blah, blah. I feel like I can tell you all that, as I tell how I really feel on this blog. And that is how I feel. Granted, I am excited for the end result. I just do not look forward to the massive uncomfortable issues, and the more than likely bed rest, and the possible if not inevitable PPD after. And let me say this pregnancy has not been “fun” so far. Why? I am sick ALL the DAMNED time! Day or night, doesn’t matter I am so nauseous. That didn’t happen with my son. And I am exhausted, because I can’t sleep at night. So, I ordered a pregnancy pillow. I didn’t do that last time. Why? Because I listened to other people who were like just get a body pillow. NO, I was miserable. This time, I bit the bullet and invested in a nice pillow for pregnancy. I figure if I am going to be miserable, might as well be comfortable too.

Motherhood maternity top justfab shoesSo, when is baby GG2 coming? February it looks like, who knows that could actually change. Knowing my luck sooner. I will say, that this time around I am going to ignore all that awesome advice that turned out to make me feel awful in the end. And looking back at what little pictures I had of my pregnancy, lack of fashion sense, that will not happen. I’ll make a list of all the things I am doing differently this time around soon. I just wanted to get this out there and let you all know that this is the reason I have been MIA a bit on the blog and not posting as regular as I should.

Motherhood maternity top justfab shoesThe outfit!

My first maternity style outfit! YAY! I chose a nice skirt that has an elastic waist and this adorable tank top from Motherhood maternity. To top off the whole look I wore my NEW Justfab velvet booties! Because I am going to wear my heels as long as I can! The top has a nice purple glitter lettering on it and goes so well with the lilac skirt. The flowy material will look good as the bump grows and I can wear it over or more than likely under it. It is really stretchy. The skirt is not maternity, but I think I’ll be able to wear it for a while yet. I have been mixing maternity with non maternity. Because I am at a weird stage where pants do not fit and me and belly bands do not get along well. Why? They tend to roll on me. I did find one finally from TARGET, which is on SALE! It has a silicone rubber bit that clings to pants and stuff better.

Motherhood maternity top justfab shoesThe booties, are comfy and fit nicely. These are a size 7.5 and they fit like a charm. Justfab is now also making shoes in wide! YAY! I didn’t wear any accessories because well, I am having preggers brain and forgot. We are lucky I have makeup on, I didn’t sleep well the night before. Thank Gandalf for concealer!

    Oh congratulations! I hope the morning sickness passes soon and you feel more like yourself again – and that you have less issues with the pregnancy this time around, it does sound so hard. I loved dressing a growing bump (so much so that I wrote a book about it!) but I did not enjoy constantly feeling sick, being unable to eat and all the aches and pains. So worth it in the end when you have that beautiful baby though!

    Looking forward to seeing more of your pregnancy style! While my pregnancy days are behind me it’s always nice seeing how other people dress their bumps! 🙂

    Hope you are having a lovely week so far and feeling better 🙂 Congrats again!

      Thank you so much!!!! I am going to this time, didn’t last time and had a more miserable time. I did too, I don’t envy them anymore. I feel everyone’s experiences are different and if they love it they love it. ME? I am just not one of them. Glad to know I am not alone!

    Congrats girly! I have two girls and I wanted two and no more. I also do not enjoy being preggo. I never get morning sickness, but have had situations come up and was high risk with my last and I was like never again am I doing this. I am so excited for you and your family!

      Thank you!!!!! It’s so refreshing to hear others not enjoy being pregnant. I feel so much better! Still sick as hell though. I am going to be good with just 2 kids. I do not want any more than that either.

    Congratulations! I hope the sickness passes soon and you can start to enjoy being pregnant. To be honest I didn’t enjoy it much either – I was worried the whole time. She did arrive early and that was difficult but she was so worth it. I’m done at one though! Love your maxi skirt, and those velvet boots are fabulous! Thanks for linking up 🙂
