What I’m Wearing – A Baby Bump

Maternity Clothes Jeans

I’m so happy to finally announce that, “I’m Pregnant”!!!! I’m not sure why I waited until 6-and-a-half months to share the excitement, other than I was probably overly cautious after my first trimester. Getting pregnant has been a 3 year journey for us with lots of ups and downs, but the downs have made this “UP” so so worth it. My heart is so filled with joy and I can’t wait to meet our little baby in March. We’re not going to find out the sex, so nursery shopping and picking out a name has been a challenge, but I’m loving every minute of it. More on all of that in posts to come, I’m sure.

We just had our 6 month ultrasound last Monday and saw things that I had never imagined – the baby was kicking, rubbing its eyes, swallowing, and hiccuping. You would think that due to my previous situation, that I would be terrified of ultrasounds, but I can’t help but to jump out of bed on an ultrasound days and think, “yay, we get to visit the baby today”. I know that’s a funny thought since the baby is always with me, but it’s just so nice to see that adorable little face on the monitor and know that everything is ok. My husband surprised me by flying my mom in from Washington for the weekend {yes, I went into the ugly cry when she walked through my front door} so that she could go to the ultrasound with us, which made it even more exciting when the little one put on a show for all of us.

Besides the ultrasounds to let me know everything is ok, the baby is also kicking up a storm. I started to feel flutters two months ago and now its full on kicks and movements. I can literally see he/she rolling around under my shirt and my heart melts every time. How can I concentrate on anything else whenever that little baby is moving around inside of me? I always had hope that we’d make it to this point, but I’m still in shock at the same time and those movements are a reminder of just how far we’ve come… FINALLY!

I’m trying to proceed with caution, but it’s really hard not to get so excited about all that is {hopefully} yet to come.

PS – can you see the bump in this post? My belly is exactly why that blue dress was so dang short LOL. If you had seen a side profile of that outfit, it would have been obvious that I was not only pregnant, but 5 months along. It was all I could do at 4 months to stuff myself into these jeans and black shorts for my post first-trimester outfits. I’ve learned that full frontal profile shots while covering your hips can be very deceiving ;)

    Congrats!! So happy for you! xo

  • Jen

    Yay, Yay, Yay!I’m so happy for you! I literally started tearing when I saw your post. I understand how you feel, I have been down that same road. My poor perinatologist was my couselor/perinatologist. He let me come in every week for an ultrasound so I can see my baby moving because I was such a wreck with my previous losses. My beautiful baby girl kicked me what seemed liked my entire pregnancy but I was glad she did because it made me know she was doing great in my tummy! Congratulations!!

  • Congrats! Rock that baby bump. I was one of those gals that didn’t show until about 7 months…then I “popped” Its great that your waiting to find out the sex. I did that…it made “it’s a boy!” so much more exciting in my opinion. My hubby had fun picking out a girl and boy name. Maybe if I’m blessed with a second pregnancy I’ll have a little girl.

  • oh my ghad! i am so excited for you, congrats congrats – you look beautiful!

    Congratulations! Not sure if you remember me from the JewelMint FB wall. Remember when we were just a little bit obsessed with JM and stalked the page for restocks? Haha! I am expecting too! I am due in April. Hope everything goes well with the bump and congrats again!

  • Congratulations! So happy for you Jen and hubby too! I can’t wait to hear more and see the little one. Such an exciting journey. Blessings and tons of good thoughts being sent your way. :-)

    thank you all so so much for the love and support. as most of you probably already know, ive been blogging at TheLooksForLess.com for about 4 years now. while i’m passionate about budget + fashion, there were so many other things i was wanting to talk about including diy, beauty, recipes, and hopefully someday kiddos :)

    im beyond excited to dive into this next chapter of my life, and hope to share some of it with you all. there will definitely be some fun maternity fashion posts, nursery ideas, and who knows what else :) thank you all so much for your super sweet comments… they are all so truly appreciated!

  • OMG. I am so happy for you. This is such great news. I was heartbroken for you when you last wrote about the ‘down’ part of this journey. It’s just great to hear this wonderful news! I defintely can’t wait to see your Mom posts as you prepare for this bundle of joy.

    Many healthy and joyous blessings to all of you!
