How far along? 30 Weeks!!
Total weight gain:Up 17 pounds.
Maternity clothes: Yep and lots of stretchy britches!
Best moment of the week: Not baby related, but taking Caroline to the park this past weekend. We had the most gorgeous weather all weekend and were so ready for some time outside.
Food cravings: Not much. I've had to cut back to two normal sized meals and then small snacks in between to keep from being super uncomfortable by the end of the evening.
Feeling: Feeling pretty good overall. A bit uncomfortable at times, but that's only going to get worse as the next few weeks pass. I think it helps sort of knowing what to expect out of the last couple of months of pregnancy this go-around.
Baby Goodies Acquired: I snagged the cutest, softest sleeper from Feltman Brothers when they were having a special sale and I finally ordered the fabric to have the crib skirt made yesterday as well. Things are inching forward I suppose.
Symptoms: Tightness in my belly by the end of the day, drainage, waking up a lot during the night and starting to have some shortness of breath when I try and carry Caroline around for too long, which is so tough because my girl is attached to my hip most waking hours.
Pregnancy Fitness: Sticking with my workout plan. On some particular moves like squats and deadlifts, I have really decreased my weight and am upping my repetitions instead and I've completely given up intense cardio in favor of longer, moderate sessions instead. I rest a lot more in between sets, too, so I've added about ten minutes to my total workout times I'd say.
I may have shared some of these outfits already, but thought I'd post again. I'm always on the lookout for cute maternity options, so when I find something I like, I share :)
White cardigan: Lilly Pulitzer | White Tank: Lilly Pulitzer | Pants: Beaufort Linen Co. | Tassel Necklace: Bourbon and Boweties
These pants are seriously the best! None of this outfit is maternity, but it all works, for now at least, with my growing belly. I'm working on hemming the pants now. I had literally just pulled them out of my mailbox and had to put the on immediately the day I got them!
Herringbone Vest: J Crew | Buffalo Plaid Popover: Gap Maternity | Black Leggings: Gap Maternity | Boots: Old from Shoe Sensation | Doggie photobomb: Compliments of Dixie
Scarf: J Crew Factory | Jacket: J Crew Factory | Dress: Old Navy Maternity | Boots: Target
This dress is so simple and sure to be a staple for multiple seasons. It is sleeveless, but just throw on a jacket or cardigan to make it work during spring or fall depending on your due date. It'll also look great with flipflops or dressed up a bit with some cute wedges and jewelry. I imagine I'm going to get a lot of use out of this over the next two and a half months.
Piko in Blush: Sugar Boutique | Maternity Skinny Jeans: Gap Maternity | Fringe Booties: Target | Tassel Necklace: Bourbon and Boweties
Piko tops have been one of my favorites this pregnancy. As much as I love bump hugging tops that show off my belly, some days, you just want some more flow to your wardrobe ;)
