The Joys of Pregnancy

{Top - TJ Maxx, Skirt - Banana Republic circa 2003, Necklace - Target, Shoes - Payless}

The joys of carry a little human around.

- Getting to hike my skirts way up.  This one was practically sitting right under my boobs. I'm avoiding maternity clothes.
- Feeling random kicks and thumps in my gut - that IS the best part!
- Having to go up a bra size... not the good part.  I need all new brassieres.
- The Snoogle Total Body Pillow.  I might keep this thing around even post-pregnancy. So amazing.
- Decorating the baby's room, shopping for baby things and thinking about babies.
- Random emotions. I got teary eyed when I found the perfect mirror for baby boy's room at TJ Maxx.
- My little fur baby, Charlie-dog seems to love me even more lately.  He senses something, I think.
- The, "I can't, I'm pregnant" excuse.  Like, I can't wash my hair, I'm pregnant.  So I am wearing a lot of buns.  It's not so much the washing activity, it's the drying and styling that is so exhausting.  Don't worry, I'm still showering regularly, just with a granny cap on.
- But most of all, my growing midsection.  The more it grows the more I know baby boy is getting bigger and stronger.  I hope he's enjoying it in there!


  1. Ahh you look soo cute! I'm still trying to fit myself in my regular clothes, I make it work aahaha!

  2. You are so adorable!

    I also wanted to let you know I am having a giveaway on my blog, it is a pearl $168 necklace by Pomegranate. Please check it out.


  3. You look adorable! You are glowing girl!

  4. Can't wait to meet the little guy!

    Rock those clothes as long as you can you look perfect!

    A Candid Life

  5. I needed maternity clothes far less than I expected and purchased. Maternity jeans were really handy. Non-maternity drawstring pants were just as fine for non-jean options. Maxi dresses!! Those have been wonderful to me. I also love the snoogle pillow. That is the best thing ever!!! How fun to feel the kicking begin, too :)

  6. Preggo?? Oh my goodness!! So excited for you! Life just gets better from here:) Each phase of my children's lives brings a lot of laughter, learning experiences, and mostly happiness:)
    You look ADORABLE.
