About 3 weeks ago I got my energy back ya’ll! I thought I would never see the day when I didn’t feel like my tiny yet growing baby wasn’t sucking the life out of me, but in the words of Drake “started from the bottom now I’m here”! If you are a new mom in the first trimester and feel like there is no end to the fog that is being newly pregnant, hang in there girl! So I have been considering this time as the “Sideline Socialite off-season”. There is kind of a lull in sports, football is over, basketball is coming to an end, and baseball, although still relevant is less and less being considered as America’s favorite past time. I am taking this time pre-football season to talk about life, travel, family, the end of basketball season, and prep for the upcoming football season. In honor of my newly found energy I thought it was appropriate to share the sunniest, brightest look and kick off my summer style wardrobe.
If you know me or have read previous posts of mine, you know that the summer time is my LEAST favorite season. I am less than thrilled to be at the height of my pregnancy when I know that in Houston temps will easily reach 100+ degrees. However, when you get an off the shoulder number like this in the most vibrant of yellows, you get a little happier about the summer and shaping your summer style! I mean honestly! I love that this dress isn’t maternity and works with the bump BUT the best part is that it’s only $15! Yes, you read that correctly.
I am beyond thrilled to be halfway through this pregnancy with my baby boy. I had a pretty rough time with nausea for about 4 1/2 months which was not true for my first pregnancy with Cami. Along with that came a condition called ptyalism which is basically producing excessive saliva non-stop. Although not painful it was extremely annoying and super weird! Once I hit around 18 or 19 weeks it all went away and it literally felt like the clouds had lifted and the sun was shining. I could think clearly and finally started enjoying being pregnant! at 20 weeks we went to our final ultrasound and saw my little man (who was definitely 100% confirmed to have male parts) and it was everything to see him moving around in there. After my appointment I immediately started thinking about his nursery, and wardrobe, and where he will get his hair cut, and all the boy daydreams flooded in. It’s super easy to go buck-wild when clothes shopping for a baby before they are even born. It’s sort of like you black out and next thing you know you are walking out of Target or Carter’s with a bag full of tiny clothing and you don’t know what happened until you get home and look at the long receipt! I am super proud of myself because I walked out of the store with one item for baby boy. A Star Wars tee. When I showed Cameron he got choked up and our family of 4 became so real.
