Oh my gosh, I am 28-weeks pregnant. As of yesterday to be exact. I feel like I blinked and all of a sudden I’m in my third trimester. I guess that’s a good thing since I know this last trimester is NOT going to go by as fast. But here’s the thing, with Molly I wanted it to go by fast because I couldn’t wait to be a mommy! And I also had NO idea how much my life was about to change and to be honest, how much harder some things were going to get. And even though I am so excited to meet our son, I know how HARD it is to have an infant. And I can only image how hard it is to have a toddler AND an infant. So I’m honestly not in any rush for this baby to arrive. With Molly I counted the days until she arrived, but with this little guy I stress every time I see a week go by because we have so much to do to prepare!
And FYI, I took these pics a few weeks ago, so my belly is soooo much bigger now. The aches and pains are really starting to set in because I’m measuring so big. My doctors told me the baby is measuring over 3 weeks BIG! Eeeek! Kevin was over 10lbs when he was born so I’m slightly terrified. Ha! Anyway, even though my belly is a little smaller in this pic, this maxi dress still fits me perfectly! And it’s non-maternity. In fact you can see me wearing the EXACT same dress HERE but in a different print. In the post, I show myself wearing the dress at 9-months pregnant and again when I wasn’t pregnant a year later. That’s why I love wearing non-maternity for as long as possible when pregnant – you get more use out of the clothes afterwards! It’s a lot harder this time around though because I am getting so much bigger than the first time.
This is just such a great dress. I legit own it in 3 colors! One is a really cool print that I plan on taking with me to Hawaii when we go in a couple weeks! A little trip before the baby arrives! We are going on the trip just in time because I can’t travel after April 4th. I’ll be too pregnant then. Oh and I love maxi dresses for pregnancy because you can easily wear flats with them. Yay for comfort!
Speaking of flats and comfort, I’m wearing my most comfy sandals with this dress. They are neutral, so they go with everything and they have padded stitches in the sole that makes them soooo dang comfy! You’ll love them. I know this pregnant mamma does! I did a giveaway with this brand (Børn) on my blog recently and they gave me a discount code for my followers for 15% off. It still works if you wanna get them. Use code ALILUVS at checkout!
Just wanted to share with you guys! And wish me luck tackling my 3rd trimester!!!!
