Hello Belly!

It has started, my belly is expanding! I really thought I had some time left in my regular pants but those days are coming to an end, quickly! When I first found out I was pregnant I had visions of a cute little belly but that is not the case. Instead my belly is more like a bakery, chock full of rolls and muffin tops! This morning when I came to the realization that my belly has "popped' I asked Brett if he could tell I was pregnant or if I just looked fat. He told me I looked beautiful also known as, you do look fat but I don't want you to cry, in husband talk.

I finally broke down and bought a belly band. After doing absolutely no research I settled on the BellaBand that I picked up from a super cute store in Cool Springs called Pickles and Ice cream. I tried it on as soon as I got home and I already love it! It will be nice to wear my normal jeans unbutton (and perhaps a little unzipped) without anyone knowing!

While I was in Pickles and Ice Cream, I couldn't help but take a look around. Here are some of the cute things I made a mental note to come back and get as my belly grows.

Maternity Clothes: Maternal America Maternity Black Lurex Front Tie DressMaternity Clothes: Maternal America Maternity Denim Mix Tie Front DressMaternity Clothes: Olian Maternity Black Button Detail Lycra TopMaternity Clothes: Maternal America Maternity Herringbone Mandarin Jacket - Final SaleMaternity Clothes: Michael Stars Maternity Shine Cowl Neck Dress Passport

I also ordered my first pair of maternity jeans today. I have no idea what to look for so I just went with a pair that I thought were cute and could work with anything. After reading some reviews on gap.com I decided on these:

Along with my maternity jeans I got a pair of yoga pants since I plan on starting prenatal yoga next week. Now this is something I did research and I am so excited to start. A friend of mine is newly pregnant and is going to come with me to Half Moon Yoga in Cool Springs and hopefully my friend Sarah, who is only 3 days behind me, will be able to make some classes too! I've never taken a yoga class but I read so many positive things about prenatal yoga that I am willing to make a fool out of myself for Baby E!

Again, I couldn't help but look around the gap maternity website. They have some really cute stuff! Here are a few of my favorites that I can't wait to order when my belly starts looking like a pregnant belly instead of a beer gut!

And that does it for my maternity clothes wish list. If anyone has any suggestions for maternity clothes please feel free to share! Oh and for all you lovely people who want belly pics they are coming soon (I know you are all so excited!).


  1. 1 - do those really cool shoes come with the pants, or are they sold separately?

    2 - i just cleaned out my closet this weekend, i'm sure my normal clothes would be maternity sized on you. come on over!

  2. I bet you're gonna be the most stylish prego lady there ever was!

  3. Also, Missy is lying. I saw her a few days ago. She has not popped, nor does she look pregnant (YET) or fat. She still looks skinny mini. Don't let her fool you. No belly. But I can't wait for it!!!!!
