So, I had a little bit of time in my hands and was searching for other mommy bloggers on fashion and style. Found a mommy who has a website on fashion. Of course apparently I fogot to bookmark it and can't find it now to reference. But, I do remember registering to her website so as soon as she has a new post I should get a notification and will find her site again. Hopefully. Anyway, she had her pregnancy looks on the site and gave me an idea to post mine.
My 2nd Pregnancy:
I call my daughter the 'natural wonder' or the 'fighter'. So, after an IVF baby, I got pregnant naturally but miscarried at 7 weeks. After major depression and trying again for 2 months got pregnant again. 5 weeks into it, day after a Dr appointment with no sign of heart beat, I started bleeding and showing the same signs of miscarriage. Waiting out a horrifying weekend, at 6 weeks we found out the little fighter had a strong heart beat. But, the Dr's still were afraid of miscarriage as it was surrounded by blood. But, my little girl was strong and held on.
And I loved my body with her pregnancy. I only gained 20 lbs total and had a perfectly shaped (basketball like) bump. I wore nice and form fitting tops and dresses and loved to show it off. Luckily found the originals of these...
This is in October 2008. I am 17 weeks pregnant. Pea in the Pod maternity dress (hand me down from my sister-in-law), the same banana republic cardigan I wore yesterday, white guess flip flops. Silver locket necklace (gift from my mother-in-law). Guess cream/gold sunglasses.
Halloween 2008. I am almost 5 months pregnant. My best friend is 2.5 months ahead of me. See, I told you guys I wore that top during pregnancy. Maternity jeans. Necklace a gift from my mother-in-law. Headband that amazingly matches the top from charlotte rousse.
Brown Banana Republic top, khaki color velour sweats, pea in the pod maternity boucle coat, corchet hat. Ugg boots.
Last but not least... Jan 2009 at Palm Dessert. I am 7.5 mos pregnant. Teal top from Macy's, over black yoga pants, bebe black sneakers.
I wish I had taken more photos. I took these to make a collage of my 10 mos of pregnancy (not sure why they always say 9 mos in movies. 40 weeks of pregnancy is close to 10 mos. A brutal truth I found out when I first got pregnant).
I highly recommend taking photos each month (around the same time if you can remember) to make a little album for your little one. Some mommy's like to show their bare tummy but since I have a son I wanted photos he wouldn't be emberassed to look at. I have a mini album for both kids.
