When it came to having a baby shower, unlike most preggo moms to be who I know, I originally felt more nervous than excited! Since this pregnancy has not been a walk in the park and I’ve mostly felt so sick with 24-hour nausea, Phil and I have been cautiously optimistic every step of the way. That said, my sweet mom and sister would not take ‘no’ for an answer and they flew out from the east coast a few weeks back to throw an intimate shower for Phil and I with some close friends and family. 

It was such a special day that I’m now really happy we’ll be able to look back at. My husband’s family flew out for the occasion too and it was so nice to have everyone in one place celebrating our new family member to-be together! Sharing some of our favorite photos from the day below.

I found my baby shower dress at Fillyboo Maternity, one of my favorite lines I’ve discovered so far throughout my pregnancy. All of the dresses are so comfy, boho and etherial and I could have lived in them throughout all nine months. Some of the dresses are a bit on the pricier side but if you lock down one, I bet you’ll wear it again and again on repeat like I have. Most of the styles are also great for breast feeding in the postpartum period so it’s a win-win. If you’re looking to add one to your collection, a heads up that they run pretty true to your pre-pregnancy size (if not even larger). I purchased an XS and was surprised that i ended up having to get it taken in and up. It was totally worth it!
