Styling the Bump + 26 Week Update
It’s officially that time where my bump is no longer flying under the radar, at 26 weeks it’s totally poppin! I’m starting to embrace my changing body and learning to get creative with how I dress lately. I’ve also finally given into the body con silhouette which I’ve definitely strayed away from in the past! This outfit makes me laugh because the last time I wore this dress was almost a year ago during my bachelorette party haha! I will say that wearing this body con dress now is so different than last year because I feel so confident in it and I love letting the bump shine. If you haven’t noticed I’m totally taking cues from stylist Monica Rose who dressed Chrissy Teigen while she was pregnant. She’s huge on layering body con pieces under looser jackets, vest, and cardigans. Since it’s starting to get warmer you will see more dresses and casual looks from me so keep following along while I style the bump!
I also wanted to give you guys a quick update on how I’m feeling so far. I’ll try to share these updates every few weeks or so. If you missed the first post, check it out here!
How far along: 26 Weeks
Baby’s Size: Eggplant (9.2 Inches, 2lbs)
How many days to go: 97 Days
Total Weight Gain So Far: 13lbs
Stretch marks?: None yet! Drinking a ton of water, using lotion / oil, and exercise is helping!
I’m Feeling: Good! Definitely starting to feel pregnant. Even though I workout, going up the stairs feels like I’ve ran a marathon haha. I also have experienced swollen ankles here and there which isn’t fun at all. Last week I caught a cold which was really tough being that I can’t take the normal medications that I would take if I wasn’t pregnant. It took about a week to get over it and I’m happy to be feeling much better!
Missing anything: Wine (I don’t miss it as much as I thought I would though).
Movement: A lot of moving! I feel the baby more during the day now.
Food Cravings Lately: Lately it’s been grapefruit, pineapple, and strawberries. Real talk, I also randomly bought swiss rolls the other day which I haven’t had since I was a kid (they are sooo bad for you but so good)!
Currently living in: Leggings!
Belly Button In or Out: It’s in still but it definitely wants to flip on me soon which I’m not prepared for.
Happy or Moody: A huge mix of both, I cry really easily now which is annoying hahaha.
Looking forward to: Getting the nursery together!
