I found this lovely maxi style dress last weekend at Target, I usually shop clearance so I cant link to the dress. But like a lot of mommies and stylists just be sure and check out the clearance rack in the back corner of Target and you can probably find this dress. It was just $14 and so comfy, I ordered a few other maxi dresses from boohoo.com and I plan to wear those for the next 13 weeks so I don’t have to think about waistbands.

THE STATS

How far along? 27 weeks – Baby is about 2.5lbs.

Stretch Marks? Nope!

Best moment this week? So many good moments but really it is about learning to enjoy every moment with this little girl in my belly.

Anything making me sick still?  I think sickness is long gone, but Ill keep you posted if it comes back.

Food Cravings? Oatmeal, orange juice and steaks. plural.

Symptoms? Lots of baby movement, nights are getting longer and my bladder is getting smaller.  Another thing is everyday I have less and less space so after eating a regular size meal I feel so overstuffed and full makes me super uncomfortable. I will just turn into a little snack machine for the last month of baby #2!

Weight gain? 18 pounds. (onward)

25 Weeks

Baby, Lifestyle

25 weeks over here! I have around 100 days of pregnancy left and am getting close to the third trimester. I feel so excited to start this next part of my pregnancy and cant wait for summer to start and get these last three months started! We took these shots on Valentines day while we were visiting the chocolate factory in downtown Raleigh. {It smelled like heaven in there} I am feeling pretty good these days, I have been able to work out a lot more this month and have started listening to some baby and birth podcasts. I don’t think you can ever know enough about birthing and pregnancy nutrition. Its so great to know what you are doing for yourself and the baby, and knowing what is best for your health and being completely dependant on my midwife or the doctor for answers. That is it for this weeks update! Thanks to all you lovelies for taking time to read up on me and follow my pregnancy! Happy Tuesday. ❤

THE STATS

How far along? 25 weeks! Baby is about the size of rutabaga (a what??) and 1.5 lbs!

Stretch Marks? No 🙂

Best moment this week? Making it to 25 weeks! And I am so close to double digits in days till baby.

Anything making me sick still? Feeling really great, my lower back get sore sometimes. Like when I scrub the bathtub but I am good on that for at least another month on scrubbing. 😉

Food Cravings? Fruit, chocolate and coffee.

Symptoms? I feel like my belly is getting a LOT bigger these days and I am craving a trip the beach!

Weight gain? 15 pounds.

Valentine Love

Lifestyle

We made a special Valentine this year!  Ariana’s auntie made a flower crown and so we had a little photo-shoot to document the cuteness! I bribed Ariana to pose with marshmallows, and she wore an adorable little sweater dress we found at Target. ❤

21 Weeks

Baby, Lifestyle

Every week that goes by gets me a little more excited for May! Just 19 more weeks left, I am starting to get a little impatient since it already seems like its been forever. I also think that once spring arrives here in NC I will be a little happier with clothing options. I am planning to wear lots of shorts and Maxi skirts for the last couple months of this. 🙂  Baby Bautista is doing great, the bump gets a little bigger every day and she is moving around SO much, Ariana loves it and gives my belly lots of kisses. We are trying to prepare her for the day when her little sister gets here, but I am not sure she really understands what is going on yet.

How far along? 21 weeks!  Just growing over here.

Maternity Clothes? Just my jeans, somedays. 🙂

Stretch Marks? Not yet. Hopefully never! {I never got any with baby #1 so keeping my fingers crossed}

Best moment this week? Ariana gives her little sister kisses every morning.

Anything making me sick still? Feeling pretty good, some days I am pretty tired and sneak in a nap.

Food Cravings? Loving yogurt, apples and chocolate ice-cream. Yes I sent my husband to Harris Teeter for a tub of chocolate ice-cream at 9:30pm!

Symptoms? Baby Bautista is moving around all the time, mostly at night when I am trying to fall asleep. I have also had a lot more dry skin but I am not sure if that is baby or the weather.

Weight gain? I have gained 12 pounds since the start of my pregnancy, I got weighed at my appointment last week but I blame the HOLIDAYS for the last two pounds. (Sorry baby).

It’s a GIRL!

Baby, Lifestyle

We are so very excited to share that we’re having a baby girl! I guess we wanted to double the cuteness factor in our lives. Ariana is going to adore being an older sister and we are absolutely in love with the idea of having another precious daughter to love. ❤ We are just a few days away being halfway through this pregnancy and in just a few weeks we will be kissing the face of our baby girl!

Candles & Coffee

Lifestyle, Uncategorized

I really missed my daily latte while on Holiday travels, but we are back home now and life is once again ready to give me delicious lattes. Baby and I are spending the day baking fresh whole wheat bread, drinking lattes and doing a little shopping.  I picked up some of my favorite candles from Kirklands, the scent is Cafe Mocha by Cobblestone Candle and it will make your home smell so delicious and welcoming!  ❤ Go buy one of these candles and I promise you will LOVE it.

 

We hope everyone had a lovely Christmas.

Cozy Morning

Lifestyle

When the furnace mysteriously stops working, and you wake up to a cold home. You have no choice but to make a huge pot of coffee and start the fireplace, and then snuggle there all day. Making the best of a crazy day and enjoying what life brings us.

What I Wore Wednesday

Fashion, Lifestyle

Happy Wednesday! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week and getting lots of wonderful things accomplished, if not I hope you are relaxing and LOVING life! This is a new draped cardigan I picked up last week by Craft&Barrow. I paired it with a comfy blue tee and some boyfriend jeans. The jeans are are called AIKO Skinny from Silver jeans. I am almost 17 weeks so this outfit is flattering for the (not quite a bump) bump. Hashtag every mommy needs this outfit.

Holiday Prep

Lifestyle

My favorite time of year is the Christmas season, I have been listing to Holiday station on the radio from day one and the great countdown is on! For me it is not really about the gifts or the lights, but more about the time together and enjoying the spirit of joy that only comes this time of year. Of course the hot coffee, the cold weather and delicious Turkey dinner are all a part of that and I enjoy every second of it!

Today I am buying the last few gifts, rechecking my packing list and eating candy canes like a real Mommy Elf. I feel great today, morning sickness has definitely eased into non-existence and baby B is growing like crazy. I get to feel lots of little baby kicks and it reminds me to stay healthy and to stay consistent with my workouts.

Happy happy days.
