PREPPING NAIYA TO BECOME A BIG SISTER (ISN’T EASY!)

I’m officially 33 weeks pregnant today and I’m already bigger than I was when I delivered Naiya. Needless to say, I feel like a giant whale who is ready to pop at any moment (but somehow, I still have so much more time to go)! Since it’s been a while since I’ve been able to post an update for you, sharing the latest and greatest with on my pregnancy journey, family life and how we’re prepping Naiya to become a big sister.

TULA: CLEAN SKINCARE REVIEW

I’m just over 7-months prego but I’ve officially surpassed the size I was when Naiya was born. It’s hard to believe I have over two months to go! Either I’m carrying a ten pounder in here or my body has decided to pop to the max for baby #2. Getting dressed these days feels like a total body workout–let alone putting on any makeup. To save myself the hassle of wearing makeup (especially in this crazy summer heat!), I’ve turned to some natural skincare products that have helped me to feel confident going bare-faced. Sharing one of my favorites today, how I’ve been using it and where you can snag it. Scroll down for a special discount code that you can use at checkout too! 

BUMP-FRIENDLY WEDDING GUEST DRESSES

Dressing the bump for weddings and other fancy occasions isn’t always the easiest. It’s hard to pick the dresses out in advance because you never know what size you’ll be.  They also tend to be extra expensive. I attended a wedding this weekend at almost 7 months pregnant and it took me forever to find an outfit I felt comfortable in.  For anyone else in the same boat, linking to my favorite black tutu skirt that fits really well over the bump as well as some other bump-friendly dresses I’m loving right now. Enjoy!

A CONVERTIBLE CARSEAT WE’RE LOVING

As a new mama, when it first came time to buy the perfect carseat for Naiya, I was totally lost.  There were so many options out there at all different price points and I remember feeling totally overwhelmed! If you’re on the hunt for the perfect carseat and are feeling the same way, this post is for you! Sharing the affordable carseat brand that’s been a lifesaver for us since Naiya was born.  Excited to also share how it’s grown with Naiya throughout the first almost two years of her life.

Happy Thursday! As I shared in my recent baby bump debut post, it’s been such a busy season over in the Galanty household! In case you missed it, I’m currently pregnant with baby #2 and I’m due in October! Today’s post features photos  taken the week before Phil and I found out we were pregnant. I’m excited to finally share them! It’s so crazy to think that our first baby is going to be a big sister so soon! With such big changes coming, in full disclosure, my anxiety levels have been through the roof recently. In the interest of being fully transparent for any other mamas who may be in a similar boat, I’m sharing my latest pregnancy confessions today. After you take a read, please leave a comment below to let me know if you’ve experienced any of these anxieties too! I’d love to know!
