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!
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!
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!
This pregnancy is flying by and my bump is getting bigger by the day. As a second time mama to be, truth be told, I’m not paying as much attention to every pregnancy detail as I did when I was pregnant with Naiya. I don’t always know exactly how many weeks (days and hours) pregnant I am or what size vegetable this baby is as I did last pregnancy. Instead, this time around, it’s all about keeping up with Naiya, making sure I make it through every work day in one piece and everything in between! As overwhelmed as I’ve felt recently, one thing that makes me feel better is having fun styling the bump. I’ve noticed I feel so much better when I feel a bit put together each day. Sharing one of my favorite dresses of the moment that’s comfy for pregnancy and beyond (and it’s currently on sale!). I’m excited to also round up nine other summer dresses I’m eyeing that are bump-friendly even though they’re not maternity. Non-pregos, all of the below picks should work for you too!
A big thank you to all of you who reached out with the kindest words regarding our pregnancy announcement #2 on Instagram! I’m still pinching myself that Naiya is going to be a big sister and that we’ll be a party of four so soon! To recap: Phil and I are due with baby #2 this coming October! It’s been such a crazy whirlwind of a few months–so much so that I’ve had to cut back on updates on here until now. So excited to explain why and to finally share all the things below that will get you up to speed!
