Outfit Post: 23 Weeks

We're approaching the 6 month mark, and all the baby stuff is getting REAL. Like, there's a real moving baby in there, and it's going to come out in a few months, and our whole lives are going to change. It's exciting.  And crazy how fast it's going by.

I got a little dressed up this weekend to go to the high school cabaret night to see the big girls perform.  A sweet mom friend from Aurora's preschool brought me a bag of hand-me-down maternity clothes this week, and I think my summer wardrobe is now pretty much complete! (Though I'm on the hunt for cute, low brown leather sandals...) I do believe this dress will be making frequent appearances all summer long.

Outfit details:  dress-maternity hand-me-down, belt-vintage, wedges-thrifted

This is a super-easy ensemble for pregnant mamas: tent dress + belt + wedges. This belt has been a staple in my wardrobe since before pregnancy, and I'm glad there are a still a couple holes to go!

Here's what's going on in the baby department--I have my check up tomorrow.

The 23 Week Rundown 
Baby Size:  A corn cob, and about a pound and a half.
Feeling: I feel great during the day, but I haven't been sleeping as well because of some low back pain. I'm trying to walk more and start a stretching routine before bed.
Weight gain: I'll find out officially tomorrow, but definitely gaining.
Cravings/Aversions:  Butterfingers. Sour candies of any kind.  Greek yogurt + fruit + granola. Mostly sweet stuff STILL, though I do eat regular little meals and am getting a lot more veggies in, especially now that it's grilling season!
Preparations:  Every time we stop at the thrift, I pick out a little something for the little one. I know she's probably fine in the clothing department, but I've been finding such cute stuff (vintage things included!). And seeing those tiny clothes makes me giddy.

Happy Monday! I am looking forward to the end of this week when we are traveling to PA for a long Memorial Day weekend  with the family!
