Bump Style with DCinStyle

Words cannot express how excited I am about collaborating with Elena of DCinStyle today.  I've been an admirer of her art and blog for awhile.  She's so amazingly talented and created the art work above based on our photos.  This print is definitely going in my baby's nursery! 

Elena is also pregnant so we decided to both incorporate patterns and colors into our bump style for this collaboration!  I encourage you to visit Elena's blog so you can see how super talented she is and such a cute mommy to be!

Changes and Changes

Sweater: J Crew  /  Dress: Motherhood Maternity  /  Shoes: Sole Society  /  Handbag: Coach

I have to laugh when I look at this photo because I literally look like I'm smuggling a beach ball and wearing three layers under my sleeves!  Maybe taking photos after work isn't the best idea.  I recently went through my archives and got a kick out of my expanding belly.  When I started blogging, it never occurred to me that I would soon be documenting my pregnancy.  I've lately been feeling better and better the further in pregnancy I get.  My husband said to me the other day, "you're pretty proud to be pregnant, aren't you."  He wasn't asking because he knows that I am.  If you asked me a year ago when I was planning to have children, I would have said not any time soon.  Now, I can't imagine not wanting to have this child.  It's a strange thing this pregnancy is but I'm loving every minute of it.

Capitol Hill

Linking up today with Marionberry Style!  There was a time when my closet solely consisted of black and white.  Seriously.  Black and White only.  Black and white attire is my safe and comfort zone but I grew tired of the usual.  Even though I've incorporated much more color into my wardrobe, black and white will always be my go to colors.  Heck, my wedding colors were even ivory and black.  Do you have any go to colors?

Out of Element

Shirt: Old Navy  /  Shirt: Forever 21  /  Pants: Gap Maternity  /  Shoes: DSW  /  Handbag: Marc by Marc Jacobs

This past Saturday, my husband, mom, and I ventured out to Buy Buy Baby.  That store is crazy!  It's literally a Bed Bath and Beyond but just baby stuff.  I was so overwhelmed and out of my element.  I've never been very good at buying anything for children and even worse buying things for boys.  I had fun looking at the little toys and clothes but when I realized how many things a baby actually needs, my mind got scrambled.  Just being honest :-/  I realized that I need to do more research but thankfully I've got some time.

It's a...

(Crappy Iphone pic and awkward angle but oh well!)

Our boy was not shy yesterday and showed us the money shot easily!  I KNEW it was going to be a boy.  I just had a feeling.  As the oldest of four girls and always wanting a little brother, I can't wait to have a little boy running around!  My husband went a little nutty buying a bunch of clothes for his little man but it was awesome to see him so excited.  He walked around the office the whole day showing everyone the ultrasounds pictures.  Needless to say, we are thrilled!  I now pray and hope that my little boy, Lucas, is healthy and well.

17 Week Preggo Update

Weight Gain?:  I gained one pound since my January appointment.  Right after my appointment yesterday, I inhaled a thanksgiving style lunch then burgers for dinner so my next appointment will more than likely see a larger weight gain!

Maternity Clothes?:  Yes, yes, and yes.  Thankfully, I had some gift cards to use up and clothes that were gifted to me over the holidays so I think I'm set on maternity clothes for a while.  

Symptoms?:  Acid reflux and allergies but other than that, I feel great!  I'm so happy that, hopefully, the sickness has gone away.  I feel like my old self again.  I even started going to the gym which helps me keep up my energy.

Sleep?:  Same as 13 weeks so I copy pasted:  "Yes and no.  I sleep in spurts of 2 hours here or 3 hours there.  My husband bought me a Snoogle but he seems to use it more than me."

Do I miss anything?:  Not really.

Movement?:  It's hard to describe but it feels like popcorn popping or a fishy swimming around lol  No real kicks yet though.

Anything making you sick or queasy?:  Just smells still.  I can't stand air fresheners nor the smell of food!

Food cravings?:  Japanese food, cuties oranges, lollipops, bread, bubblegum ice-cream (even though I can't flipping find any! Ugh)...

Have you started to show?:  Belly is out!

Boy or a Girl?:  BOY!!

Best Moment This Week?:  Finding out that our little baby is a boy and giving him a name...Lucas!

Love Is All You Need

Happy Valentine's Day!  I wore this outfit on Sunday and thought how Valentinesy it looked then I remembered that Valentine's Day was today!  Oops, pregnancy brain.  So I'll be wearing this again since only like two people saw me on Sunday.  Does anyone else do that?  

Today is extra special because, fingers crossed, we find out the baby's gender at our appointment this morning!!!!!!!!  I'm so excited I can barely stand it!  I've been reading online how some women drink Mountain Dew or something really sugary to make sure the baby is alert during the appointment.  I'm going to play it safe with some orange juice and hope for the best.  I have a feeling it's going to be a boy but will be very happy either way!
