So, 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.
This 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.
So, 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.
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.
The 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!
I am loving this outfit! And really I can not wait to share more bump styles. In between puking my guts out! I hope you all bear with me for this exciting journey. I hope you all do not mind.
Steal my bump style!
