I have a pregnancy secret! Wearing a watermelon-colored lip stain has made me feel like a million bucks. I have always wanted to try out a darker pink shade, and honestly since first wearing it a few days ago I’ve kinda worn it everyday since. I feel like it brightens my entire mood, which makes me feel less tired (mentally), chipper and dare I say… sassy.
I’ll be sharing more on the exact lip stain I’m wearing in an upcoming post, but know this: when you feel something you are more likely to exude it. Love that.
We’re on the hunt for a wooden dresser for the nursery. Something to hold Maxwell’s toddler clothes and new baby’s newborn clothes. And I kinda wish one would just magically appear in our home so I can start washing all of the cute neutral-colored newborn onsies and blankets and sleepers. Hello, nesting phase. OH MY GOODNESS, newborns are just the best!
Maxwell calls everyone’s belly button/tummy a “bay-beeee”. It’s so adorable, but also a little nerve-wrecking. So far he’s limited “everyone” to just Zack and I, so we can laugh about it while we sip our morning coffee at home. But I know one day soon he’s going to say that to a stranger. Any advice? (awkward giggle)
So far we’ve made it through all our doctor appointments without the baby’s gender accidentally being revealed. I know in the past I’ve been certain I feel, “we’re having a boy!”. Then one week my feelings switched to, “we’re having a girl!” And now I’m confident I just don’t know. Really, the only thing I know is this baby is a strong kicker (and we’ll be delighted with either gender).
Also, this baby loves food, and whenever I eat (which is often, ha ha) the kicks become crazyyyyyyy.
What I’m wearing: foil hearts tank c/o Asos, maternity bermuda jean shorts from Old Navy, braided sandals (similar) from Target, glasses are RX.
This is my first time wearing Asos and I have to share, I’m loving their maternity line. Their tops are lightweight (easy for layering, too) and super reasonably priced. And just for fun, a few additional Asos shirts I love: this daisy tanktop, this boat neck striped top, and this jersey and chiffon contrast top.
Asos offers free shipping both ways when you spend $25 or more.
Oh, and thank you for all the feedback on nursing tops last week!
Aww you just look so happy! Makes me so excited to have another one sometime :) I kept looking at Asos when I was pregnant, but just hate buying online without getting to try things on first. I think I may have to go ahead and buy some next time around though.
Love getting to follow along for your second pregnancy!
They have free shipping both ways (!) when you spend $25 — so great, right?! :)
The lip stain is really cute on you! I recently decided to be brave and try a darker shade of lip color, and it’s so much fun!
Love the lip stain! I often refer to my tummy fat as my ‘baby’ – it’s always good for a laugh (but way cuter coming from a toddler!)
You look lovely! I’m almost 20 weeks pregnant, and I feel like I’m eating constantly! I’m always hungry. lol
There is nothing quite like the hunger of a pregnant woman, I’m sure of it ;D
Oh I love the lip stain! I haven’t worn make up much since I found out I was pregnant, but I need to get some stuff! You are totally right about exuding what you feel!!! Totally need to work on that!
You look so amazingly happy + beautiful! <3
My advice, if it happens tell them the truth! They’ll likely laugh and appreciate Maxwell’s curiousity and certainty that all bellies contain babies :). I once had a little girl walk up to me in Meijer and she said “baby?” As she pointed to my belly, her mom was so embarrassed and said she is newly pregnant so her daughter just assumes the same of all bellies now. I laughed and totally understood :). Good luck to you! And ps… Thanks for the sulfate free shampoo tip!
