Happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are having a great start to your week! Ya’ll I have the prettiest dress for you today that I scored recently from H&M! I am always on the hunt for non-maternity items that can work as maternity and this dress is so good! You all know I love a good leopard print and this dress can easily be dressed up or down! I dressed it up a bit with some lace up block heels, but would also look so cute with some flat slide sandals! I kept the accessories simple by throwing on a crossbody bag and layered necklaces. I hope you all have a great Tuesday! <3
Happy Friday eve ya’ll! We are almost to the weekend! With the weather heating up and my bump getting bigger I’ve been in desperate need to pull the trigger on some maternity swimwear! With my pregnancy last time being more towards the fall and winter I never bought any maternity swimsuits so I have been on the hunt to find some affordable ones for summer! Honestly I hate investing in maternity wear just because I will only be wearing it for a short amount of time so these suits are perfect! Like this adorable leopard and ruffle suit! It’s so adorable and only $18!!! If you love a good palm print this one is so fun and under $35! If you want to flaunt the bump a little more this one is so chic and only $17! I hope you all have a great weekend! <3
Happy Tuesday loves! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and Mother’s Day to all the mamas! We had a wonderful weekend celebrating and I’m not sure how I got so lucky to be this little guy’s mama and another little one on the way! Motherhood is definitely not easy but it’s so rewarding and the amount of love that comes with it is indescribable! We took our annual Mother’s Day flower field pictures and I can’t believe we’ll be adding another little one to them next year! Sawyer is in a I hate pictures phase but he actually did pretty good with these haha! I think he was excited by all the flowers! I just can’t get enough of this sweet face! I hope you all have a great start to your week! <3
Happy Thursday! This week flew by and I cannot believe we are almost to the weekend! I am excited to share with you all my first trimester bump date! Let me just start by saying this pregnancy has been completely 180, opposite than Sawyer’s! Sawyer’s pregnancy was a unicorn pregnancy and besides some food aversions I felt amazing up until I delivered! Well Baby J #2 is already being a stinker haha! Around about 5 weeks I got hit with some pretty bad nausea that was on and off all day every day. I was lucky that I never actually threw up though (yet I was close a few times)! Also I got hit with extreme exhaustion! I don’t think I have ever been more tired in my life. Which having a toddler and being extremely tired all the time was most definitely a struggle! I keep wishing my pregnancies could have been the other way around haha! Like why couldn’t my tough pregnancy be when I was childless?!!! Some things that have helped with my nausea was just never letting my stomach go empty. If I got hungry the nausea got intense.
This time around I didn’t really get too many aversions, except for coffee. The smell of coffee in the morning definitely wanted to make me gag, but I have been drinking it again a little here and there. Also no cravings really. Just if something sounds good I need to have it haha but nothing super specific. Another horrible symptom have been headaches! I was getting one almost every 3-4 days mainly at night but luckily they have subsided but not completely. I usually get headaches around that time of the month so when I was pregnant with Sawyer I had 0 headaches and it was amazing! I was hoping it would be the same, but of course I didn’t get that lucky yet again.
As for some a good symptoms, my skin has been amazing! I broke out so bad with Sawyer so it has been nice to actually have one good thing come from this pregnancy so far (besides the baby being healthy!)! I honestly don’t think I have gotten a pimple since I found out I was pregnant, which is crazy for my acne prone skin!
How I am feeling now at 16 weeks (today!)? The nausea is just now FINALLY starting to subside! I still will get some waves here and there but not too bad. I also am starting to get a little energy back, but definitely still tired! I am just waiting for that second trimester energy everyone keeps talking about haha! I am just hoping the hard part is now behind me and everything will be a lot smoother from here on out! I always joked after Sawyer’s pregnancy I don’t think I’ll get that lucky twice to have such an easy pregnancy and I guess I was right haha! Although this one has been rough on me I wouldn’t change it for the world since I know my body is doing amazing things in creating our perfect little baby that we are so excited to meet come October! Mama’s of multiple babies, were your pregnancies different or similar?! I would love to know! I hope you all have a great weekend! <3
Happy Monday babes! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We had a fun time child free getting together for a friends birthday. Getting some kid free time was way over due for us haha! Today I am styling probably my new go to dress for spring! I am so in love with this little boho dress! The pattern is so pretty and I love the bell sleeves! Also the draw string waist makes it perfect for maternity! I paired the dress with some of my favorite booties and hat, then finished the look with some layered necklaces. I hope you all have a great start to your week! <3
Happy Friday eve ya’ll! I cannot believe the weekend is almost here! So the spring maxis continue in this fabulous minty number! I am just obsessed with the color scheme and pattern of this dress! It’s also perfect for maternity or non maternity. I kept things super casual by pairing the dress with some flat studded slide sandals and threw on my new straw hat that I scored during the Shopbop sale. I finished the look with some layered necklaces and sunnies. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! <3
Happy Monday babes! I hope you all had an amazing weekend! Our’s was a mix of work and play! Saturday we met some friends from out of town for lunch and then headed to the beach. Sawyer had the best day playing in the sand and water! Yesterday was a day filled of getting things organized and errands, not so fun! We snapped these pictures after running errands and let me tell you, I don’t think I have ever gotten so many compliments running into Target haha! I mean this dress is pretty dreamy! I am obsessed with the floral print and tie straps! Also the empire waist makes it perfect for a growing bump! I paired it with some wedges and accessorized with layered necklaces and tan bag. I hope you all have a wonderful start to your week! <3
Happy Friday Eve babes! I cannot thank you all enough for all the love on our announcement Monday! We are just so excited! Over the weekend we ventured out for a little beach day and then ended the day with dinner on the water and it was just what I needed! I wore this dreamy water colored maxi dress I scored during the Shopbop sale. The fabric is so soft and it will be perfect for a growing bump through summer! I have been stocking up on flowy maxi dresses since I will be bumpin’ through summer this time around! I paired the dress with some espadrille sandals and accessorized with a straw hat and layered necklaces. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! <3
Happy Monday babes! I hope you all had an amazing weekend! Surprise! We’re so excited to announce baby J #2 is on the way! We could not be more excited to add another addition to our family come October! We also cannot wait to see Sawyer become a big brother! I think he has mixed feelings on becoming a big brother haha! One minute he’s kissing and rubbing my stomach, the next I ask him about baby and he says nooooooo and runs away hahaha!! This has been the hardest secret to keep since the bump popped out A LOT earlier this time and I have also been SO nauseous and tired! Hence why I have been a lot more MIA lately. I am finally starting to feel a little better, but still getting some waves of nausea and still super tired! I am hoping in the next couple of weeks I will get some energy back, please!! We also already know the gender and will hopefully be announcing that soon! What are yall’s guesses?! I hope you all have wonderful start to your week! <3
Happy Friday Eve! This week was going by super slow at first and now I had to do double take that it’s Thursday already! We have been having the most gorgeous weather lately and this little burnt orange dress was perfect for the sunny weather! I am a sucker for this color and I love the flowy fit! I paired it with some lace up black sandals because burnt orange and black is one of my favorite combos! I accessorized with a black hat and crossbody. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! <3
