I have been a little MIA on the blog lately so I do apologize!! We have been nesting like crazy as I am 33 weeks already! I planned to do a pregnancy update post and hopefully will get to that tomorrow but for now I am feeling good just a bit uncomfortable. I am not a gal who just has adored being pregnant (as some do) so I am very ready for Edie's due date and her daddy and I can't wait to have her in our arms and out of my womb haha! I am sleeping wonderfully still and cravings have been about the same. Gimme all the mexican food and chocolate!! The sweet tooth I have tried to limit and only eat in moderation which has helped slow the weight gain. I actually stopped ginger ale too with all the sugar it has and ended up loosing a good 7 to 10 lbs of unneeded weight gain in face and legs. My feet have been a bit swollen but summer heat will do that so I guess it is what it is! I am truly so thankful to still be growing a healthy baby and this pregnancy has had no complications thus far for which we are grateful. I will do a more in depth post tomorrow about third trimester and how it all has played out.
Did want to share some photos we had taken at the beginning of third trimester and we do have one more session so Ill be sure to share those as well. My friend Savannah with Savannah Stahl Photography took these and she did amazing. I love the moody feel these give and how special it was for my husband and I to really embrace each other as this has been a remarkable journey to say the least. Savannah has an Instagram and Facebook if you would like to use her--I can't speak highly enough of how amazing she is at what she does.
I truly have loved this dress and its easy fit throughout the past couple weeks of being pregnant. The beauty of Bellefinery clothes are that they are made for before, during and after the pregnancy experience. The dress looks super cute without much of a bump and grows with your bump until the very end. It then works magically as you nurse and get your body back to pre-baby shape. I really love the fact that it is loose but doesn't look like your wearing a large trash bag/cape..rather it hugs without being uncomfortable. I can already tell it will be nursing friendly and comfy to wear laying around the house or even adding some cute wedges/jewelry and going out at night with our little gal. I have also washed it a few times and it seems to still look brand new which is always a plus in my book! I recommend (and they do as well) to get a size in which you wore pre-pregnancy and it will fit just perfectly! I am wearing a small in the "fleur" dress and the fit is just right. Check out this company for some easy fit dresses that you won't want to take off!
I can't believe we are already at 28 weeks!! I feel like in no time it will be 29 weeks. Anyways wanted to share our little bassinet we have ready for Edie's arrival! I have really tried to purchase items both that are either new or barely used--So our bassinet is one I really love and is Pottery Barn. This exact one I believe is not on their website any longer however they do have one without handles to purchase that is very similar. Bumper is Pottery Barn as well, fleece burp cloth is Trend Lab, floral swaddle is Mini Scout brand and the minky underneath it is handmade. The little bear in the bassinet also double as a rattle and is from Dillards and the plush lamb is Jelly Cat (also a gift from my auntie!). I really cannot wait to see baby girl nestled in this sweet traditional bassinet. For us, we did not want the modern Halo and modern is really not my style but rather I have a more traditional approach. The top part of this bassinet can be removed to take wherever in the house I may want it to go and the bottom has a large oval shelf perfect for storing diapers/burp cloths/bibs/swaddles. I also love how it matches our bedroom furniture pretty spot on which you will find with more traditional whicker bassinets paired with wood furniture. Yes we are planning on using a "mamaroo" and do have a rocking chair so therefore we did not need this to swivel or have any deluxe features other than comfort and durability. I do plan on keeping it right beside me at night so I can easily grab her from my bedside to nurse.
