Dressing the Bump: Week 36

A few things have changed over the last week. The first being that my wedding rings don’t fit anymore, hence the little sterling silver number I’m sporting in the photo above. This definitely was never an issue with my last pregnancy so I was a little shocked when it no longer fit. I also am just feeling a little extra puffy all of a sudden, I’m hoping it’s just the water weight that can make you appear swollen right before delivery. Gosh I sure hope that this little dude does me a solid and comes early. Except my parents won’t be home from Israel until the 29th, so if you’re listening little guy, just wait until they’re back. I don’t think I’m asking too much, I’ve been growing this kid for almost nine months now.

Family Maternity Photos

I can’t believe we are getting so close to meeting this sweet baby. With my baby shower this next weekend, I know that the rest of the time is going to just fly by with nesting and loads of tiny baby laundry. So, I knew I wanted to take some family maternity photos pronto. First of all, because I didn’t want to run out of time, and second, I knew I would only be getting bigger and bigger these last weeks. I enlisted the help of one of my besties and her super skilled photographer husband from Eric McFarland Photography to take our pictures. The results, as you can see, are positively dreamy. Plus, my dress from Roolee boutique made this 8 month pregnant lady feel like a zillion bucks. I also promised to share a bit more about how my husband and I met and how he proposed, so scroll down past all the pretty photos to read that goodness.

Dressing the Bump: Week 31

Okay, so I’m a day late, yikes. This whole being 8 months pregnant thing is really taking it’s toll on my brain function. I am always either forgetting things or thinking that things are way sooner than they are. Hot mess central. This week has been especially nuts with a lot of family celebrations and then preparing for being gone next week for one of my best friend’s wedding. As promised, I have answered your questions below. You all were surprisingly nice, which makes me think I may be up for doing another Q & A in the future.

Dressing the Bump: Week 29

I’ll be honest, I was not feeling these photos you guys. I just felt like my “look” wasn’t worthy of a post. That’s because, if I’m being honest, most days I’m wearing some version of this get-up. I guess you could call this my mom-iform. Get it? Like a mom uniform, I know I’m pretty clever. Then I realized how important it was for me to share this look because not every day to I get out the door with my hair done, make up on, or the perfectly put together outfit. This is just Exhibit A.

Dressing the Bump: Week 28

Hello third trimester. Holy cow. As I’m typing this I’m currently wondering how on earth I am going to survive another 12 weeks of pregnancy. To be fair I had some form of food poisoning this last weekend so I think that added a little drama to mix. I’m also starting to think that this baby never sleeps, which terrifies me for my future. He is always, always, always, moving and not just little sweet movement either. I’m talking the kind that look like I have a MIB alien in me or how a cartoon character looks when his stomach growls really loud. Can you picture it? I’ve found myself wondering if I would rather my belly get way bigger to accommodate this future olympic gymnast or if I’d rather just put up with all the crazy. At this point I’m thinking bring on the quintuplet sized belly if it means I don’t feel like my baby is going to bust his foot or arm through my skin. I warned you I was feeling a bit of extra dramatic flair. Well this week’s look comes to you from Arden and its the softest and most comfortable dress maybe that I’ve ever owned. Plus it has pockets, which is like every mama’s dream.
