I’m still trying to figure out the types of things I want to chat with you guys about on this blog. My focus on this blog previously was my love for style but right now there is a 6% chance that I will want to take style photos. I just wanted to say hello and update you on my super exciting life.
Pregnancy wise things are moving along. I am in a constant battle with trying to accept my pregnancy body. I’m at a good 50% acceptance level at the moment. Half of the time I am okay with the fact that every part of my body seems to have expanded in every direction and other times I’m really mad at myself for not being the tiny, perfect pregnant woman I see on Instagram. I'm finding that having an hour glass figure is tricky during pregnancy because your smallest part (your waist/ stomach) is suddenly growing larger than your “largest” parts. However, feeling baby move around reminds me how lucky I am so it’s easier to accept being his home for a while. I also remind myself that this is 9 months of my entire life and no one has set the expectation on me that I need my pregnancy body to look a certain way. It’s just me being hard on myself as per usual. I’m just so eager to meet this little maniac because I know this will all be worth it when I get to snuggle him.
I haven't really started to nest and we've purchased next to nothing baby wise. We have our fingers crossed that one of our townhome purchasing leads will work out and when we know for sure (we should know in the next couple weeks) I think I'll be ready to start getting everything organized.
A fun little Melissa-ism I thought I'd share is that the other day Kevin and I were on a walk and I got way too confident about how far I could walk in between bathroom breaks. We were about 20 minutes from home and I had to pee so badly that I approached a young couple that was doing some yard work outside their house and asked if I could use their bathroom. So that happened.
Sadly I think those are all my updates. How have you guys been? I have a couple blog posts lined up that I'm excited to share with you. I did my own make up for my wedding back in October so I have discovered quite a few products that I love so stay tuned for some product posts.
