Baby Pieces // The Sweetest Thing



If it wasn't obvious enough, Aaron and I have got the sweetest thing baking in the oven. Do you remember when I was MIA for all of the  summer? It wasn't just because we bought a house and moving, it's also because we found out we were pregnant! I didn't get lucky like some of my friends, I experienced all of the symptoms of first trimester. I was sleeping sixteen hour days and I couldn't eat anything, I even turned down ice-cream [I know!]. Turns out, growing a baby takes a lot of energy - the couch was definitely my best friend and I the potato.



So why am I just sharing this now since I'm well into my second trimester? In reality, aside from my blog, I'm a very private person [I know, hard to believe - just ask my family who thinks I'm an iron fortress]. Like all mommy-to-bes out there, I worry. I'm a surgical nurse and have seen and experienced things only others can imagine. I wanted to make sure everything was medically okay and that little Blueby [our nickname for the baby, short for blueberry - the size when we found out we were expecting] was healthy. So needless to say, we were cautiously excited. It was also nice for Aaron and I to have something that only we knew and shared, which made it even more special.OFF SHOULDER MAXI DRESS // sz S [SIMILAR 1, SIMILAR 2SIMILAR 3PEARL STUD EARRINGS • LIP CREAM • T3 MICRO


In addition to our announcement, we're also having a girl! Aaron and I was so sure Blueby was going to be a boy from the beginning. It wasn't until our ultrasound when the the tech let me gush over our "baby boy" by saying "him" and "he" that she finally said "you know it's a girl" after an hour. Can you say a curve ball? We just wanted a healthy baby so regardless of the gender, we're very happy. Well maybe I'm a little more than Aaron because now I have mini-me to dress up and will be as every bit the Baby Pieces, figuratively and literally.



Now that I have a growing belly, I've been trying to navigate the new venture of maternity shopping. I'm going to be honest, it's something I'm still resisting, only because I like to have versatile pieces and maternity clothes are only limited to when you're pregnant. My solution? Size up! Stay tuned for future posts on what I find. The maxi dress I'm wearing is non-maternity but as every bit comfortable. It's stretchy and non-restricting, which is a big sell for me. I didn't realize how cute it was on - especially showing off my new curve! I bought this on sale for only $6! Proof that you don't need to spend a lot to be fashionable. I've also linked similars for $16 - it comes in BLUE, GRAY, MAROON, and many more!
