Week 21 Bump Update:

How far along are you? 21 weeks, 4 days…past the halfway point! In fact, at week 22, I’ll be 6 months pregnant according to this chart.  Whaaat?!

Pregnancy Month and Week Timeline

How big is baby?: According to The Bump app, Baby P is the size of a pomegranate, at 10.5 inches long and 12.7 ounces.  WOW!  Nerve cells are developing for the five senses and last week, taste buds were fully functioning.

Symptoms:
-Still have some lower back pain, likely due to the moving, shifting and growing in my belly!

Sleeping: Been having some weird dreams and not sleeping so great. Also trying to sleep on my sides, rather than my back.

Cravings/Aversions? Sweets of all kinds (but this is typical when I’m not pregnant haha!), Olive Garden salad with dressing, Carnation Chocolate Breakfast powder in milk (have had it everyday since the beginning of my pregnancy and am still craving it!)  For aversions- I’m not feeling deli meat these days.

Fears:  Wondering how Izzy will react to Baby P.  We’ve been trying to prep her, but I think she will have an adjustment period before transitioning into her role as Best Big Sister.  Any advice on this front?

Miss Anything?  Ease of movement. I’m not super big yet but with every quick or sudden movement I am very aware of my belly and it makes me slow down a bit.

Generally Feeling: I can’t believe I’m past the halfway point – time has gone by so slow and yet so fast at the same time! I can’t wait to meet Baby P but I also want to continue to enjoy this pregnancy and watch my body grow.  So incredible!

Now that my energy is back, it’s been nice getting back to workouts.  My go-to treadmill workout is 5 minute walk/run intervals.  Goes by fast!

IMG_20141209_184109

Looking Forward To:
-The baby bump is definitely out and about! I have observed that the bump slowly makes an appearance throughout the day, after meals especially and is biggest at night. Grow baby, grow!  Belly button is also starting to turn into an outie!

-I recently won a trip to a resort in Florida via fellow Chicagoland blogger Mommy on a Shoestring and we plan to go in Florida for a babymoon!  WOO HOO! Can’t wait to feel the warmth and sand between my toes!

What I’ve Been Loving: We had the anatomy ultrasound last week to check for problems, etc. and thankfully, everything came back great!  It might be the last ultrasound we have, so I was glad we got lots of photos and got to see the little peanut.  So much love already!

Maternity Clothes? Mostly all maternity-just so dang comfy!  I also decided to move clothes that no longer fit into our guest room closet so I can easily identify what fits in the mornings without trying a million things on.

In my November clothing budget, I mentioned that I got a For Two Fitness tank from eBay (for over half off!)  Unfortunately, the seller never shipped it and ignored all my messages.  Trying to get my money back from eBay but SO frustrated!  Luckily, I ended up winning a gift card from my pal Fit Running Mama and got this beauty!

Also just picked up a new sports bra from Moving Comfort.  The straps are adjustable, which I’ve heard are perfect as you grow and are perfect for nursing in a pinch!

Boy or Girl: Still  not telling yet until we do the gender reveal for T’s family at Christmas.  I will say, though, the gender reveal at Thanksgiving was a great success!  The story: my family loves to play cards.  So we got everyone together around the table (with over 30+ people, some just watched) and played a fun game called “Mess your Neighbor.”  In this game, you are dealt a card face down and if you get a King (which is high), you flip it over and yell BAM!  (It’s means you basically are immune from elimination for that round of play.) Before we started, though, we told them that just one of the kings was colored either pink or blue.  So…no one knew when it was coming or who it was being dealt to.  It was SO suspenseful for everyone and such a blast!

Movement:  Still waiting on the edge of my seat for the first kick!  I hear they come when you are still, before bedtime when they aren’t being moved around all day.  We will see!  Sometimes I think I feel little flutters here and there, but I’m not sure!  I was getting worried that I hadn’t felt any, but the ultrasound tech confirmed that the placenta is right in the way of things, so once Baby P grows a bit more I will definitely be feeling it soon!

What I did/got for baby:
-I went to Facebook to ask fellow mommy friends on books/resources, and got a ton!  Needless to say, I placed an order on Amazon and will have plenty of reading to do for the near future!

IMG_20141211_195807

-Doing more registry updating day by day after reading reviews, interacting with products in person, etc.  We have officially started the nursery (will share updates later), and purchased a crib and ottoman/glider– two bigger furniture items we needed.  Still need a dresser, but am hunting on Craigslist for one we can paint ourselves and “customize” a bit!

Best moments of the week:
Seeing Baby P at the ultrasound moving about with those little hands and feet and nose….I could go on and on!

Old Factory Candle Review and Giveaway!

IMG_2720_thumb.jpg

IMG_2716
I’m a huge fan of candles.  I love the ambience and the fragrance they give off, so when I was given the opportunity to review (and host a giveaway!) for Old Factory Candles, I said YES PLEASE!

About Old Factory candles:
Old Factory candles are hand-poured in the USA with natural soy wax, self-trimming cotton candle wicks, and premium fragrance oils. The Old Factory Candle Gift Sets each contain 3 different scented candles. Each gift set is themed around a group of related fragrances. So everyone is sure to find something perfect for every occasion, every room in the house, and all the special someones in your life. Sold exclusively on Amazon.

I selected the Winter Wonderland collection, which featured First Snow, Roasted Chestnut and Hot Cocoa.

IMG_2717
Each gift set is themed around a group of related fragrances and come in a ton of other scents, some of them pretty interesting (High as a Kite or 50 Shades anyone?!)

old factory candles
The candles smell amazing and the candle burns clean and even for 20 hours. The jar design complements nearly every kind of decor, and any room of the house – kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, family room, great room, and basement.  My only complaint is that I wish they were bigger than 2 ounces so I can enjoy the scents for longer!

And now the fun part: I’m giving away a Old Factory Candles set!

Please note that right now, they are only able to ship this product in the USA. Contest winners need to have an Amazon account and a PayPal account (for shipping reimbursement). Enter using the Rafflecopter widget below:

Silver Jeans Review and Giveaway! | Day 11

IMG_2704 *Photos taken at 19 weeks.

Shopping for jeans is always so difficult for me and I always have trouble finding a cut/style that fit me just right.  I had heard good things about Silver Jeans before, and when given the opportunity to review them, I jumped at it!

I selected the Tuesday Low Boot Cut Dark Wash jeans.  Not gonna lie, I was a little skeptical trying on “regular” jeans at 19 weeks pregnant.  But much to my surprise, they fit!  I ordered a size up in the waist and went for a low rise and a cut that flattered a straight build, which helped a lot.  I miscalculated my length size (I’m 5’5″ and got 33), so they are a tad long on me, but I wore heels here to help.

They are made from a super stretchy denim, which is seriously a prerequisite for any jeans I buy. SO comfy and forgiving.  And look at that contrast stitching and whiskering- great detail!

I’ll definitely be wearing these jeans a lot—especially post baby when I’m on maternity leave and can dress casually every day!

I also got a pair of their new joga jeans, which I have to say, I love even more!  They just arrived yesterday so I didn’t have a chance to take any photos, but the fabric is durable like jeans, but comfortable like sweatpants.  No joke.  They are made with a unique double-faced stretch weave where the top is woven like traditional denim and the underneath is a plush knit so it moves with your body without getting saggy.  I adore my pair and can’t wait to wear them!  (The pair I received has a high waist so it definitely didn’t button, but they were still incredibly soft and comfy!)

Two Faced Lipstick Review | Day 10 Giveaway

If there is one makeup item I can’t be without (besides concealer!) it would definitely be lipstick.  I keep one in my purse, in the car, at my desk and in my makeup bag.  It really brightens up my face and makes me look a lot more put together.  So when I got the opportunity to try Two Faced Cosmetics’ Liquified Long Wear Lipsticks in Melted Peony, I was stoked!

It definitely lasts like a lip stain but has nice color like a lipstick and shines like a gloss.  The plush applicator ensures an even look too.  It’s a really nice lipstick and I wore it in the outfit photos above.  It it a very light color on my skin tone, so it’s a bit hard to see. I might have chosen a darker pink shade so it would pop a bit more, but the product itself it lovely!

Blazer: SheInside (read my review here) | Top: Old Navy (option) | Skirt: J. Crew via consignment store | Shoes: DSW (similar)

Today’s outfit is a classic look featuring my white blazer, black top and teal skirt that I picked up at a local consignment store.  I added the black and white flats, which really tie the look together without being too matchy-matchy.  Although I wore this outfit in late summer/fall (can you tell by my somewhat tanned legs?!), it could definitely be re-purposed for the winter: just add black tights and black boots!  Sometimes a simple look is the best- clean and classic all the way!

Don’t forget!  I’m teaming up with some fellow bloggers for 12 days of giveaways! (You can enter each of these up till Friday, 12/12):

Striped Shift Dress | Day 7 Giveaway

Dress: Target (sold out)| Belt: Target | Flats: Old Navy | Earrings: c/o Wantable (see review here)

The first time I wore this striped shift dress, I opted for a more office-appropriate look by layering a navy blazer over it, and added a red belt and earrings (see here).  This time around, I styled it a bit more casually with cognac flats and my trusty bow belt, taking inspiration from Franish’s look.  I love dresses that double for work and play!

And speaking of Target, today’s giveaway is for a $25 Target gift card. You can head on over to Ashley’s blog, Raspberry Glow, to enter or use the Rafflecopter widget below.

Today’s outfit post is for all you ladies in warmer climates.  I’m jealous of you and am thinking back to warmer days, like when I could wear this pleated black maxi skirt.  I picked up this beauty in my August clothing budget for just under $15.  Ashley from The Cream to My Coffee tipped me off to it in her post here.  Plus, it’s pretty forgiving to accommodate the growing bump…perhaps I can wear it in March when I’m 8 months pregnant?  Hmm…not sure if it’s that forgiving…maybe post baby then!

Olive cargo jacket: Loft via consignment store (click
here for options and my remix of this item)| Tank: Target (2+ years ago?) | Jeans: AE | Watch: Kate Spade | Shoes: Target

Some days, I just don’t get around to taking outfit photos.  Today was one of those days so I’m dipping into the reserves for an outfit I have yet to blog about.  This one popped out to me because I am wearing jeans, which can only mean one thing: Casual Friday!

I love the olive cargo jacket paired with the bright coral tank.  I wore this mid August for our company’s “take your child to work day,” which was a blast to volunteer at.  But I think you could pull this look off during the fall/winter timeframe- perhaps swap the heels for cognac boots, maybe add a scarf and voila!

Don’t forget!  I’m teaming up with some fellow bloggers for 12 days of giveaways! (You can enter each of these up till next Friday, 12/12):

Maroon Dress and Belted Cargo Vest | Day 4 Giveaway

IMG_2484 *Photos taken at 12ish weeks?

Dress: c/o Kika (read my review here)| Belt: Target| Vest: J. Crew Factory| Shoes: Target (option)

I received this maroon dress from Kika a few months ago and knew it’d be perfect for the growing bump.  It looks pretty shapeless (aka like a potato sack) just on it’s own, so I added my olive cargo vest and added my my bow belt for a feminine touch.  Oh yes, and leopard heels.  Because it’s just the sassy thing to do.

Dress: Target | Belt: Target| Tights: Target (maternity)| Boots: Aldo (option)

This dress was a recent impulse buy in my November clothing budget.  Why?  Well, it’s super comfy sweatshirt material, and it’s hugs the bump nicely.  Oh yeah, and it was on clearance at my local Target for about 7 bucks.  Winner winner chicken dinner.  I’ve worn this dress three times already, including to Thanksgiving with the family.  Here, I added cognac boots and a matching bow belt, but you could add a fun statement necklace or scarf for a different of color.  I feel like a lot of other bloggers have gotten this dress too- how else have you worn it?
