We are prepping our closets for our 4th of July festivities! Since having a daughter dressing in red, white, and blue has been a highlight of the 4th of July! I found this dress at Chicwish and instantly fell in love with the ruffles and that it is off the shoulder. I wear this dress on repeat because of the fit. Currently I am all about off the shoulder <3 As I shopped around on Chicwish  I couldn’t help myself but fall in love with this and this as well <3 Continue reading “Off the Shoulder Ruffle Love”

Second Trimester Update

So now that I hit my third trimester on Saturday I will update y’all on my second trimester! EEk I should be updating better but this pregnancy is just speeding by! I lost track of how many weeks I was and I actually lost a week! This pregnancy has been an average pregnancy for the most part. I had my first midwife appointment on June 8th and baby girl was measuring 25 weeks which I was 25 weeks and 5 days so she is right on track! I am experiencing all the pregnancy norms despite what my pictures show! I am getting those spider veins on my legs, cellulite, and my belly button has popped out around 16 weeks of pregnancy. So now my belly button is like a little tunnel! I also have gained about 15lbs in this trimester and my sciatic nerve still acts up if I have been on my feet longer than usual or if I sit too much 😉 Continue reading “Second Trimester Update”

Bear your belly all my preggo mama’s! I love to watch my little girl grow and yes that ultimately means my belly is stretching giving me those stretch marks and a poppin’ belly button at 24 weeks that sticks out no matter what I wear! On the flipside, I have to embrace the changes because God created me and this new little girl just for me to carry. Us women are capable of making miracles! Especially grateful that I have the ability to carry a child when there are so many women have fertility issues. So the stretch marks just come with the territory of making miracles. However, I have a cream that helps the uncomfortable stretching skin and helps to reduce the visibility of stretch marks! Continue reading “Give Some Love to the Preggo Belly”

Baby Girl Bump Update

Well.. we have hit 23 weeks already! Our little girl is the size of a papaya! How cute is that? I have some exciting news to share we decided to forego the hospital and do a home birth with a midwife this time around! I actually have no dislike of the hospital. My first birth went smoothly, we had wonderful nurses and no complications. I just have researched a little of the protocol for infants in the hospital and reading about certain things that are not necessary that I don’t have a choice in skipping has pushed me the home birth route!  This is completely new territory for me so I will be honest I am nervous. I try to act all nonchalant about it but the nerves are real! I have not had my first appointment with our midwife yet so I am not sure what to expect! How many of my mamas out there had or have a midwife or know someone who has? Continue reading “Baby Girl Bump Update”
