Hello! It’s been awhile! I feel like I’ve been saying that for the past three months. This pregnancy has been rougher than I thought it would be. I actually had every intention of taking new outfit photos today but it was raining in LA (it never rains!) and I didn’t feel like going outside. So I only have a flashback photo from last year to show you.
I miss wearing clothes! I’ve pretty much been living in lounge wear the past couple of months. But when I do get dressed again I would love to wear something like this. I love this sleeveless sweater layered over a long button down. And this bag from Minnie + George is one of my favs! I love supporting small businesses – especially when they hand make the designs themselves. You should check out the new line of Minnie + George bags – they are amazing!

I also thought I’d give you a quick 1st Trimester update:
How far along: At the end of 15 weeks. So I guess I’m technically in my 2nd trimester now!
Weight Gain: About a pound? I lost about 6 pounds in the beginning of my 1st trimester so I’m still not back up to pre-pregnancy weight. I would be more than happy to gain a bunch of weight and have my appetite back though. It sure beats throwing up!
Maternity Clothes?: Not yet. I have a bump that just looks like I ate a big meal (even though I’m hardly eating anything) so I still fit into my regular jeans. Although I prefer to wear my looser, low waisted pairs. I also spend a lot of time in my pajamas.
Food Cravings: None 🙁 More like food aversion – to everything. I still can’t eat like a normal person and mainly snack on cereal, grapefruit, fruit pops and bread. I have been able to eat some breakfast foods like eggs and tator tots. But man, I just want to stuff my face with a burger!! I can also keep sweets down better than regular food so I’ve had a few donuts and cupcakes!
How I’m feeling: Ok. The Diclegis has been a lifesaver and has kept the nausea at bay and given me some of my appetite back. I’ve been on it since week 9. I still feel a little off during the day and at night the nausea comes back and I end up vomiting sometimes. I was really hoping I’d be feeling better by now. My doctor says to give it 2 more weeks and I should be over the nausea. Fingers crossed!! I’m also sleeping a lot (10-12 hours) and pretty much sit on the couch all day.
I’m starting to feel more excited about the baby too. I was just miserable for the first 2 months and worried that I’d have a miscarriage but now that I’m farther along I’m actually starting to make more plans. Before I got pregnant, looking at baby stuff was kind of hard/sad because I’d been wanting to get pregnant for about 2 years. So now it’s nice to be excited about making a registry and putting lots of cute baby stuff on it. Right now it’s probably really impractical but I sure have a lot of cute stuff on there! You can take a look at my baby registry HERE! It’s still a work in progress. I could really use suggestions on what is good to put on a registry since I have no idea about what a baby actually needs! If you have any suggestions please let me know!
Gender: Too early to find out – I think. I have an ultrasound sometime in February and I’m hoping I’ll know by then! My husband and I both want a girl though. We have the girl name figured out but not exactly sure what we’ll do if it’s a boy! But I definitely plan of finding out the gender because I need to feel prepared…haha.
Nursery: We will be turning our second bedroom into the nursery. It’s pretty small and we have a pull out couch in there that we have to keep which makes the space even smaller! So it will be interesting… I think we have just enough room to add a crib and changing table! You can see the design and color scheme that we currently have going on in this post. Thankfully, I think it will work for a gender neutral nursery! What do you think?
Even though I feel like I haven’t been eating enough all of the tests and scans I’ve had have come back negative for any problems so far and the baby is growing on track for it’s due date on July 8th! So I’m thankful for that!
And thanks for sticking around and still coming to visit my blog even though I haven’t been posting! It means a lot to me and I can’t wait until I can go back to normal!
