Maternity Style

Happy Hump Day!! Jeremy and I just got home from a great dinner with friends and drinks (for Jer) out on the patio at a wine bar. We are taking advantage of the time we have no with no kids and going out as much as we can!

I am finally starting to get a bit of a belly. As exciting as that is, I feel like I'm in between 'normal' clothes and maternity clothes. I was standing in my closet the other day complaining about this to Jer, not even really knowing if he was listening. Well, he was! Because a few days later, I got this little present in the mail...

I don't want to buy a whole new wardrobe for the next 6 months... but I also don't want to look like I am squeezing every last inch of myself into my 'normal' clothes... this book is perfect for those women who are in the middle somewhere. And my husband is perfect for knowing exactly what I need. (gag- but I do love him more than words)

Other than whining about my lack of belly-accommodating clothes, Jeremy and I have been filling up our social calendar this summer! I think we are both in the mode of 'pack everything we can into the months before October'... not that we feel like our lives are ending when the baby comes, but we know it will be 10 times harder to pick up and go to dinner, or go away for the weekend without much planning.

So, we are planning on going on a vacation with my family at the end of June to Colorado. We are staying in a house on a river in Estes Park! I can't wait to go back to Colorado, Jeremy and I went a few years ago for a wedding and fell in love. At the end of July, we are taking our 'babymoon'. A couple of people asked me exactly what a babymoon was and it is just the last 'hurrah' before baby comes! We are going to Horseshoe Bay which is right outside of Austin. Here are some pictures...

We have an OB appointment tomorrow morning.. not sure what to expect. I think we're listening to the heartbeat and scheduling when we get to find out the sex of the baby! I really thought I would be more anxious to find out what we are having, but I feel like this pregnancy is going by so fast, that I am trying to savor every moment. Plus, I will be happy either way and I don't think it will feel real until i'm actually holding our baby.

I hope everyone is having a great week! I promise, I will get belly pictures up soon. I took one at twelve weeks when I was barely showing and i'll take another one this Sunday when i'm 15 weeks!!

XOXO Haley

P.S.- I just re-read this post and it sounds like I am complaining or not excited about being pregnant... umm I SO AM!! It all doesn't seem real yet. It seems like I don't feel good, my waist is getting fuller and I haven't had a period in 4 months just because. I felt the same way when I was planning our wedding. It just felt like I was going through the steps and it didn't hit me until we were on our honeymoon... oh snap, we're married. Maybe I am a late bloomer in that sense, but I am thinking when we are told whether we are having a boy or a girl, I will finally 'feel' pregnant. Does anyone else know what i'm talking about??


  1. I know what you are talking about and I also know you are in love with your baby- don't worry! :)
