Being pregnant on a beach, in a bikini, is the most relaxed and comfortable I’ve ever been in a bathing suit. Not a damn care in the world. We island hopped, beach hopped and pool hopped all over the USVI and NOT once did I have to suck in, worry about love handles or tan lines. IT WAS AWESOME!
Pregnant mamas and hope-to-be pregnant mamas – DO NOT buy a maternity bathing suit. A. They are overpriced. B. They are almost ALL fugly. (Except for some exceptions at ASOS.) Rock one of your bikinis because you can. I got lucky and kept a few bathing suits from before I lost all my weight. I did have to order one more (because you always need a new bathing suit for a Caribbean vacation, right?!)
Yes… I got some serious stares when a beluga whale comes walking down the beach but most people were eager to come talk to me and ask all about my pregnancy. It was so much fun to meet other tourists and locals just because I flaunted that bump.
Don’t be afraid to enjoy a vacation while super pregnant. Screw being in an ugly one-piece and rock that bikini, ladies! It almost makes up for the fact that everyone is enjoying a strong, pretty cocktail except for you.
I’m back from “maternity leave” so get ready for more blogs!
We visited one of my favorite spots on Saturday. If you live in Austin and you haven’t been to Jester King Brewery then you are missing out! I can’t drink the brew but I definitely took part in Stanley’s Pizza and St. Arnold’s Root Beer. Everything comes in a mason jar except for the fancy beer. (My kinda place!)
I’m officially 7 months and getting big! I’ve gained 15 pounds so far and hoping to max out at 25. I’ve done so good at eating healthy and adding tons of protein to my diet. I’d love a chunky little boy at birth. (Okay, maybe not huge but plump!) Glucola was not too bad (tasted like orange soda to me) and they finally let know I’m officially anemic. Hopefully, the iron supplements will stop the fainting and dizziness. Other that that I’m measuring on point and doing good!
Nesting is taking control (except for cleaning the floors, ugh!). I’ve redone my pantry and now its on to the nursery. I can’t wait to see the finished product!
I’ll be flying in a few days to the Caribbean (Yay for weddings and baby moons!) – any tips for traveling while super pregnant??
I got all busy with A Christmas Affair and Thanksgiving that I missed my 26 week shoot. Major fail. BUT I had a successful Black Friday and got some cute, new digs to wear.
Plaid. Plaid. Plain. Gingham. Plaid. Tartan. Plaid. Anything plain. I love the affordable options at Old Navy right now. Plus the boyfriend options totally work for pregnancy style! See my picks below:
I’m a couple weeks late but here is my set of six month’s pictures! Only a few more months to go! I cannot wait to meet my sweet, little boy. You can’t beat the weather we are having now — I truly feel bad for 60 – 70 degree weather while others are buried in snow. Scarf season is in full swing!
I love my clutch from LA’s Rais Case — shop on her site or choose some other’s I found on the interwebs…
My husband and I are total tech hoarders. Do you keep all your old phones?? I had a drawer full and finally decided enough was enough! Just wanted to share the joy I had in selling my phones at SellACellPhone.com. Super easy and convenient and I actually got a decent amount of money!
I have been waiting for the cooler weather since May and OH, does it feel good!! It is still a little warm for “sweater weather” but I think we are finally in “scarf season!” JUMP FOR JOY! I can finally break out my Zara plaid scarf!
I am now 23 weeks pregnant. Chris says I’m growing every day but I don’t really see that. Trying to take more pictures so we can see the progress but we always forget.
A couple weeks late but here is my First Anniversary and 21 weeks pregnant style! Bump is getting bigger daily! You can’t really see it unless I’m standing sideways but it’s definitely there!!
I LOVE my dresses that I can wear as maternity style without breaking the bank and buying specific maternity dresses. This Free People dress comes in so many different colors! You can dress it up or down and accessorize it differently with each day. I chose to pair it with my Ariat wedding boots and Kendra Scott wedding jewels!
Here are the different colors to choose from! Which would you choose??
