Maternity Dress (wearing size 6 for reference) // Pumps // Maternity Shapewear (perfect for under dresses!) // Earrings from LOFT, sold out // Bracelet // Ring // Lip Liner (PDA) + Lipstick (Crush)
This past Saturday I (and baby DeWire!) was showered with so much love from all the special women in my life! My mom, sister and mother-in-law worked very hard to throw a beautiful shower and I couldn't be more thankful! I was overwhelmed with love and support from everyone who came and I had such a great time. I thought I would share a few pictures from the shower as well as my outfit details and a 30 week bump date!!
ASOS has been my go-to site for maternity dresses (although they have tons of non maternity dresses too!). They have unique and affordable clothing and so far, I've had great luck with sizing (except a pair of jeans that I had to return). This navy twist neck skater dress ended up being perfect for Saturday (only $34 and all sizes available)! I love the style and flattering cut. Also, I found the perfect affordable maternity shapewear at Motherhood Maternity! I definitely recommend it for under dresses (smooths you out + avoids panty lines). I wore a pair of low nude pumps and that's honestly all I could handle. The further along in pregnancy you get, the achier your ankles get! All other details are linked above and below.
30 Week Bump Date
How far along are you? 30 weeks and 5 days (about 9 weeks left!)
How big is baby? Around 3lbs (size of a large cabbage)
Name? We have a few top contenders, but haven't come to an agreement yet!
Food cravings? I honestly haven't had any weird cravings, but I think I've been craving sugar lately (especially candy!). I also love fruit and crave that often!
Am I exercising? I'm trying when I can...I am going to prenatal yoga classes and I HIGHLY recommend them if you are expecting! I also try to take walks and am looking forward to the weather warming up so I can get out more!
Physical changes? Besides a continually growing bump, there have definitely been changes once I hit the 3rd trimester. I am much achier now by the end of the day in my ankles and back. I started having slight puffiness/swelling in hands in morning and feet/ankles at night depending on how active I am. This started when Todd and I were in Nashville (but I do think flying had a lot to do with it, too). I'm also feeling more tired recently!
Do you feel a lot of movement? Yes! He has been very active lately. I especially notice it in the evenings when I'm relaxing after dinner. It's a really cool feeling!
How is the nursery coming along? We are finally making strides with the nursery. We redid the nursery room (used to be office) so we had to paint and install crown molding, baseboard and carpet. Now that that is all done, we just put together the crib on Sunday and started putting away gifts in the closet. It is slowly coming together! I will definitely be doing a nursery reveal post when it is completed so stay tuned.
Excited or nervous!? BOTH! The closer we get to my due date, the more 'real' things are becoming! I can't wait to meet him, but there is definitely a mixture of excitement and nerves at this point. I'm pretty sure that is normal!
Thanks for reading!!
