outfit post maternity: black maternity swing dress, black t-strap wedges

(33 weeks)
Inspiration - Asos

This is the dress that I'm going to wear to my baby shower this weekend. It's my only 'dressy' maternity dress. (So it's also the dress I'm going to wear to all Christmas & New Year events. All hail the little black dress!) I put on cute high heels like the inspiration photo but that lasted all of 30 seconds before I nixed the idea and swapped to easy low wedges. Not even long enough to snap a photo - no way jose.

I'm super excited to celebrate this little girl with my friends and family this weekend. Many people I who I don't get to see very often are traveling here from out of town. I am so thankful to have such a loving group who will be a part of her life growing up. I feel really lucky.

Week 32:
Symptoms - Few new occurrences of note: Having a little bit of acid refulx/heart burn when I eat certain foods. Really achy back if I try to do too much (like carrying around bunches of boxes of Christmas decorations and trying to reorganize the garage). And lastly I think my balance is off a bit because doorways and stationary objects seem to be jumping in my way when I walk/waddle past.

Food - I've been eating a little bit of everything this holiday season. Thanksgiving food. Cookies. Cakes. So much deliciousness everywhere. All the indulging showed up on the scale this week at the doctors where they told me I've already hit 49 pounds. Eeeeep. Back on track after this weekend! Need more veggies in my life!

Exercise - Still trying to walk as much as I can. Work went a little crazy last week so I didn't get in my 10K steps very many days but I plan to get back to that routine next week as well.

Clothes - I've reached the point of this pregnancy of not liking clothes. At all. Every single morning I look at my options and I don't want to get dressed. All I want to wear is giant PJs. Having to wear something everyday is just annoying. If there is any tightness, pulling or ill fit of any kind - forget it. I'm not wearing it. So I'm only wearing about 1/3 of the maternity clothes I have. The most comfortable options. Over and over. Not great blog material.

Body - Baby has started to squirm like a little alien trying to escape my stomach. You can see these bumps and movements beneath the surface. It's super cool and weird.

  1. I had a baby girl in April... At the end of my pregnancy I gave up and wore "nice" (new, not-faded, not-stretched-out) black or dark gray yoga pants every single day to work, and just mixed up tops/accessories. You will survive!! :) Your LBD is beautiful. Enjoy every minute of your baby shower!

  3. You look great! Try not to worry too much about the scale. I have 2 kids and the first time around I put on 65lbs! And I'm only 5'3! The weight will come off. Enjoy your last 7 weeks of pregnancy and congrats!

    1. Thank you! I hope so! 9 months to put it on and at least 9 months to get it off right? :)

  6. You could try a colorful belt with the dress to change things up.

  7. I agree not to worry too much about the weight - actually my midwife doesn't even weigh moms, she says that I can read the numbers on the scale myself and to let her know of any concerns. With my first I gained 55 lbs (ok, I stopped weighing myself at the end, lol). But babies keep you so busy, I lost it all plus an extra 5 lbs without too much effort, just taking her on walks and trying not to indulge excessively. Not sure if you have any health concerns though, if it's just the weight I say who cares!

    And honestly, you look amazing!

    1. Thank you so much! So much of having a first kid is new experience and you ask yourself is this normal? But you are totally right - I'm healthy and that is the most important thing. It's nice to hear others had similar experiences and recovered just fine. :)
