Bumpdate | 22 Weeks

How Far Along:  22 weeks (5.5 months)
Size of baby:  A spaghetti squash - getting big!
Gender:  Baby Boy!  You can see all the details from our Gender Reveal here
Maternity Clothes:  Alright so I finally caved and bought a few maternity items.  Actually most of them are non-maternity but have a loose enough fit that they work now and I’m thinking they will also work post-baby.  Win win! 

White skinny jeans – these were a MUST.  I wear my white pants to death and they were starting to get uncomfortably tight.  The belly band can only do so much!  I do kind of wish these were distressed, so I might try and DIY that at some point. 
Maxi Dress – This one is non-maternity and it is SO darn cute.  I already wore it this past weekend and it was super comfortable.  Throw a denim jacket over it and it’s work appropriate too!
Shift Dress – This dress is non-maternity as well.  I sized up to fit the “girls” (seriously my boobs have grown SO MUCH it’s ridiculous) but I’m pretty sure it’ll fit post-baby as well.
Striped Maternity Dress – Ok so I was super skeptical about this dress.  I am on the shorter side (5’4) so dresses that are knee length or longer don’t generally work for me.  I brought this one into the fitting room on a whim anyway because the fabric is SO soft and hello, stripes.  Um it’s so cute!  And so comfortable!  It comes in a couple more colors so I might have to get a few more.  They’ll be great staples for both work and play.
Best Moments:  Doing a little shopping!  It had been a while, this girl needed some retail therapy.
Looking forward to:  Getting in shape.  This is so embarrassing to admit, but up until this week I had only worked out twice since I found out I was pregnant.  I know - so bad.  I realized how pathetically out of shape my arms were when I could barely hold my one year old niece for more than a few minutes over Memorial Day weekend.  Eek.  I've started doing a couple of "maternity friendly" workouts a few times a week and I'm already feeling better.

  8. I have that shift dress, too! This is actually the fourth blog I've seen it on and I've seen someone wearing it out and about. I love it, but mine is a little shorter because I have a long torso. Couldn't bring myself to return it, so I just have to deal with that.

  9. You look amazing! All of those outfits look great! Halfway there!


  10. Your new maternity/non-maternity clothes are so cute! I love tight dresses on pregnant people. I think when I prego, I'll wear them all the time. lol.
