Pregnant life

Wednesday, November 27, 2013

I am 25.5 weeks and I have a new found respect for single moms.  Aside from having to maintain a household and raise a child they are responsible for taking off their own clothing.  I don't know how they do it.  I'd probably stay married just so my husband can help me take off my pants . . . . and my boots.  When I look down I can't see my vay jay jay anymore, so at this point I'm not really sure when to schedule my next bikini wax.  Oh, bikini waxes are perfectly safe my doctor said.  The reality is I didn't ask my doctor, I looked online and everyone said it was ok.  At this point my doc probably thinks I'm a total ditz, which I am totally blaming on pregnancy brain.  Sometimes I find myself starting the same sentence 3 or 4 times.  My husband and I work in the same building so he drives.  I found myself confused on a two way street the other day.   I wasn't sure which lane to turn onto from a right turn.  Everyone keeps telling me I have this glow, I think they're referring to the "pregnancy glow" but the reality is I spend a lot of money on bronzer, a combination of Guerlain's Terracotta and Terracotta Sun in the City (no longer available).  I have yellow undertones so I tend to look pale even though I am the perfect shade of olive.  I have not purchased any maternity clothes so I have been wearing my jeans underneath my belly and holding them together with a hair tie, if that's not creative and innovative then I don't know what is.  I rely on my scrubs for work on some days and other days I rotate between three pairs of trousers that still fit.  I just don't feel like spending $196 on this perfect pair of maternity J. Brand jeans I found at bloomies and I hate the empire tops they sell at those maternity stores.  Ugh.  The good thing is I wear a lot of Vince, A.L.C and Joie and they run a bit big to begin with and they are flowy so I haven't had to buy any tops.  ASOS and Topshop have a lot of cute maternity clothes online so I may buy a few pieces when I totally need to.

Ok that's my rant for now.  Stay tuned to see what I find to wear for the Holidays!

Now I completely understand why Kim K looked a hot mess during her pregnancy.  It's because she had no clothes to wear! I take back all the negative things I said about your cankles Kimmy.

Bump Day

Thursday, November 7, 2013

I am running out of clothes to wear! I swear this baby grew dramatically in one week.  I finally started showing and I'm so excited!  I first felt a kick on October 3rd and since then the baby has been moving so much.  It's so cute.  Baby K is definitely going to party like mamma.  Every night around midnight our little nugget starts moving around so much!
I wore this dress because even though it's not a maternity dress it is super stretchy which comes in handy, especially now.  The dress is low back and bodycon so I wore a long blazer over it since I wore it to work.  I still continue to wear spanx.  For one my thighs are huge and they rub against each other which I absolutely hate and two I like the way it smooths everything out.  I wasn't sure if I could wear spanx so I asked my ob/gyn and she said it was fine and that it actually offers support for my back.  Yay for me! Outfit details below. 
I guess I'm going to have to go shopping soon! 

OOTD: ASOS body con dress no longer available but similar style here and here, Patterson J. Kincaid blazer no longer available but similar style here.  Via Spiga nude pumps.  Similar here and here.
