Dressing The Bump: 2nd Trimester

Shoes: Nordstrom
Watch: c/o Arvo

Good morning! I know what you're thinking-an outfit post?!?!?! Yes! I FINALLY am feeling on the up and up and decided it was time I ventured out of my comfy clothes and take some outfit pictures. I didn't even throw up until AFTER I had gotten home. I'm making progress people :) 

I'm now at the 18 week mark of growing these babies, and my body is definitely making some changes. Dressing this bump has been a bit more of a challenge than I had originally thought. Thankfully Pink Blush Maternity has such a wide selection of cute maternity clothes to choose from! I absolutely love this maternity top because it can be worn during the early stages of pregnancy to hide the bump, and throughout the second trimester. Depending on how big this belly gets, I'm hoping I can wear it through my third trimester as well with an oversized cardigan. 

Now let's talk about maternity jeans. I never thought I would like them, but SURPRISE! They're the best thing that ever happened. It's like the fat pants I've always dreamed about. You know-the ones you wear on Thanksgiving because your button is just going to pop after finishing your piece of pie. Pink Blush Maternity has the best selection of maternity jeans. They fit true to size and they're nice and stretchy. They're perfect for wearing to the office, or out on date night with the husband. 

If you're pregnant-make sure you check out Pink Blush Maternity. They really do have the best selection of maternity dresses, pants, and tops.

Boy/Girl Twins: 16 week Bumpdate

Holy smokes-I cannot believe I'm already at 16 weeks! These babies are growing super fast, and the bump has officially come out. We found out the genders last week, and had a little party with our family to announce. It was so much fun to FINALLY know what we are having. I got all teary eyed after our appointment because having a boy and a girl really is the perfect fit for our family. Here is a little bumpdate:

How far along? 16 weeks!

How big are the babies? The babies are the size of avocados! 4 1/2 inches long and about 3 1/2 ounces. 

Weight gain? Almost 2 pounds. It's all belly right now, which I'm thankful for. 

Maternity Clothes? I'm now able to wear most maternity shirts. I'm sure I'll be able to wear maternity jeans next week :)

Sleep: I'm able to take naps, but sleeping at night is pretty difficult. I'm a belly sleeper, so I'm trying to get use to sleeping on my side.

Food Cravings: Cupcakes, animal crackers, and pasta. 

My Symptoms: Still having morning sickness and exhaustion. I have to pee all the time too. 

Movement: I'm not sure. I think I've felt a little bit of movement, but it's really hard to tell. 

Names: No names yet. We keep talking about them though, so I'm hoping to nail them down soon.

Best Moment of the Week: Finding out what these babies are! It seriously was the best news ever.

Looking Forward To: I'm looking forward to starting on our nurseries. I'll share some inspiration hopefully this week!
