On top of being a horrible thrifter/blogger, these are my first belly pictures. I really have only popped out the past couple weeks and felt like there wasn't enough to show before, but I promise to be better at all of the above. I am 24 1/2 weeks today and can't believe I have another 3 1/2 months to go but at the same time, can't believe its only 3 1/2 months before she's here!!!
Welp folks, I've done it again. Run off and not posted for a million days. I'm truly sorry. You're never far from my heart and since getting pregnant aka puking my guys out, and getting out of the habit, its been really hard to stay on top of it!!! And I really haven't done much thrifting due to the fact that I just don't know what to buy!!! I am definitely on the up and up with the sickness though, so lets pray it stays that way.
My boobs got too big for most of my clothes prior to my belly getting in the way, which was really frustrating.:) I know I'm probably the ONLY person on the planet to say that, but I really don't mind being smaller chested and every single sundress of mine turned me into a whore, rather than a nice lady in a sundress. So. Its been a challenge finding things at thrift stores, but I will admit that its been mostly my stubbornness about not wanting to buy new clothes that I won't wear much after the pregnancy that has kept me from finding things.
As most of you probably know by now, we are having a GIRL.:) I am SO SO SO excited. I was completely convinced it was a boy but now, I'm so completely in love with having a girl that I think it would be hard to be immediately excited if she popped out a boy.:)
Her name is Britt Louise. Not Brittany or Brittanica (yes, someone has actually asked me that) - just Britt. Eric's middle name is Britt and Louise is my mom's middle name. I absolutely LOVE that she is named after her daddy and Nana.:) I wouldn't have it any other way.
I found this dress at the Goodwill the other day for $4.50. I actually think it might be a bathing suit coverup. Well, not anymore.:) Its super comfy and perfect for a growing belly. I love that it doesn't have a tie in the back. I personally don't like tiebacks - it SCREAMS maternity to me.
Overall update: met with my midwife for the first time yesterday (I just switched from a doctor to a midwife, which also switched me to a different hospital) and I LOVE her. She is exactly what I want and talking with her actually made me excited to give birth. I'm naive, I know.:) I've gained 12 lbs which is just so weird. I haven't weighed this much since my Jr. Year of college so its definitely a funny feeling.:) I am getting more and more uncomfortable sleeping - its been rough the past couple nights. I'm convinced it has more to do with our bad mattress that it does me being pregnant, but I'm sure the combination doesn't help.
