oh baby | seventeen weeks + a giveaway!!

how far along? | 17 weeks 

due date: january 14, 2016


baby's size | baby is the size of an onion |  5.1 inches and 5.9 ounces 


gender | a sweet little boy! 


feeling | pretty good! food aversions and headaches still come and go but overall, so much better! 


maternity clothes | i started to purchase a few things this week - lots of good deals! so far i have a few dresses, shirts, and a pair of jeans. i am trying to prepare for when i need them :) old navy had some great sales - the shirts i got were $8.99 with another 50% off! 

workouts | some walks but not as much as i would have liked this week! 

sleep | not good at all. advice?! 
cravings | none this week! still loving fruit!! 

movement | i still feel small 'pops' but haven't felt him kick or move yet! i can't wait! 

fun facts | his rubbery cartilage is now turning to bone, he's growing some meat on those bones- putting on some fat {join the club, baby!! but you are worth it.} and is growing a stronger, thicker umbilical cord, too! 

miss anything | a regular night of sleep {i know it's going to get worse and then he will be here and goodbye sleep!} but i am usually up until 3am and then when i do fall asleep, my dreams are some of the scariest of my life! is this normal?! 

best moment of the week | having lunch with a great friend on monday at earl's grocery in charlotte. she used to live here and came back to visit for the day- i miss her. she brought baby boy some cute swaddle blankets and mom a sweet card. {it said, 'i can't imagine a luckier baby-to-be!} so sweet. i had the banh mi sandwich and it was delicious! i just love this place. we then went consignment shopping where i was able to pick up a few maternity clothes {again, great deals!}

looking forward to | a week at the beach

next appointment | august 20 for an ultrasound! 

+ an awesome giveaway

i am so excited to give you the chance to win one of these adorable 'freshly brewed' onesies from the outline apparel company! a friend's sister-in-law {i have met her as well and she is so sweet!!} makes this adorable apparel for kids! she is graciously giving away a free onesie to one lucky reader! {enter below before august 16 at midnight} the onesie is available in sizes newborn and six month - when they are 'freshly brewed!" it's the perfect gift for a new baby - i love the idea of writing small notes for the new family and sending this onesie in a care package! go check out her etsy site, insta, and facebook page for more info! please let me know if you have questions and all are welcome to enter! thank you so much, ashley {so nice of you and so in love with your shop!}
you all know how much i love coffee- baby boy is going to need one of these for sure!!

  1. Almost halfway there!! The larger and larger I got, the more and more pillows I needed to add to the bed and that helped a ton! Maybe some body pillows too? Definitely a pillow between the knees and one under the stomach as you get larger.

  10. Hi! I'm stopping by from the Stuff + Things linkup but I just love finding another pregnant mama. First one, right? I'm 24 weeks with my first! I love that you're documenting weekly - I haven't done a very good job of that. Just wait until you start feeling the kicks - I first experienced it during week 18 so I bet it's right around the corner for you :)

  11. That shade of lipstick you're wearing and that wrap/cardigan are both so pretty. I almost got a banh mi sandwich at dinner the other night but I passed and got pho instead. I'll have to try it next time. =)

  12. Body pillow was my best friend! Maybe try that! Love you...

  13. Such a cute onsie! Natural Calm Magnesium+Calcium helps me when I can't sleep. And if you are having any constipation issues it should clear that up too. You can't really overdose on it, you'll know when your body has enough if you get the runs.

  14. What a fun and whimsical update! I love that onesie! Super awesome!

    Thanks for sharing (and for linking up to the #SHINEbloghop).

    Wishing you a lovely evening.
    xoxo

  15. Thank you for sharing your journey with us! My hubby and I are expecting our first too (married in May, expecting by June, due in March) so we're not too far behind you. I had followed your blog a couple years ago through your wedding photographer but fell behind and was so happy and surprised for you when I got caught up this past week. Congratulations and please do keep sharing as it gives me a preview of what's ahead...haha. I also appreciate the shout out to Old Navy as I have gift cards to use there and wouldn't have thought to look for maternity clothes there! Sending you tons of prayers!
