First I want to thank each and everyone of you for the kind emails and responses to my big announcement Thursday. They all brought a smile to my face. I feel so blessed to have so many encourages and supporters in our corner. We thank God everyday for this miracle of life that he has given us and pray for a safe and healthy pregnancy.
Alot of you asked how I kept the bump hidden for so long. Truth is a few things. I was so sick in the beginning and could hardly eat so it took awhile to show. Around 10.5-11 weeks I really popped. I have yet to buy or wear any maternity clothes but I do have a few favorite non-maternity dresses that are perfect for hiding your little bump. For those of you not pregnant these are great for days you just eat or drink too much too and don't we all have some of those days! Here is what I have been living in!
This dress rocks pregnant or not. It is so comfortable and I love the colors, plus you can't beat ASOS pricing! For those of you curious it runs true to size, I ordered a size 4.
This dress is so comfortable and easy to wear just tossed on with a pair of flip flops. I liked my white one so much I ordered the Navy too. Right now thru the 21st you can get 20% off all womens apparel orders with code LOOK20
I bought this dress long before I was pregnant with Sterling and then after I had him I liked it so much I bought it in another color. I own it in navy and grey and it is such a versatile maxi dress. You can dress it up or down and it is strecthy so super bump friendly!
I just picked this skirt up last week and I have been living in it. Such a cute skirt for Summer. I paired it with a Liz Lange Maternity tank and ladies I swear by these tanks pregnant or not. They fit so well and are longer which I love because I am tall.
This dress was an investment even on sale- my last big purchase pre-budget but worth it. I adore Tibi and still love their pieces years later. This dress is no exception. I get compliments every time I wear it. I know it is something I wear will years from now and the fact that I can wear it pregnant is an added bonus. It runs on the large size so order down a size if you are considering. I got a 2 and seriously think I might could have even fit in a 0 but wanted a little extra room for the bump.
On another note, thank you for all the prayers for my grandfather, he passed away Tuesday and we had his funeral Saturday and just celebrated his life. We will all miss him like crazy but know without a doubt he is reunited my grandmother in heaven. He was such an incredible grandfather and man. He served in the army and at his graveside they did a military tribute and presented our family with an American flag, that was just so special. It was one of the most amazing things I have witnessed, it made me so proud of my grandfather and to be an American. I just wanted to share a few pictures of him in memory of his life.
Have a great Monday!
