The Second Trimester, aka the best trimester has officially come to a close over here! And boy was it lovely, I can already feel my body changing as I enter this last phase of pregnancy and I am wishing I could go back to those glory days.
As soon as I entered the second trimester, my nausea and acid reflux subsided. Most of the icky nasty feelings seemed to dissipate. Praise the Lord. The bump started to really form and I finally felt pregnant. It’s funny that you are just waiting around for your stomach to pop out a little bit to “feel” pregnant.
I went into major nesting mode and got most everything I needed accomplished for the baby’s room. I spent way too much on clothes and accessories for sure. But I will warn you now, if you are having a baby girl… it is impossible not to.
I also decided I wanted to finish some books during this time! I have always loved reading but it has been a few years since I sat down and was able to read a novel. I actually finished two books in about 3 weeks. Not really sure what that urge was about, but unfortunately it has passed. If I start a book now, I will usually just doze off. I read “My Husband’s Wife” which was an interesting thriller and “Where the Crawdads Sing” which was such a good book + unique story.
During your second trimester, you do get to go see baby around 20 weeks for a full anatomy scan ultrasound! This made me both anxious and excited, as you can probably imagine. Unfortunately, the place we went had some of the oldest technology we have ever seen and we had to watch on a tiny laptop. But it was still pretty special to see her moving around and have her checked out! Everything looked great, she has a large-ish head 😉 and likes to keep her hands up by her face and mouth!
We went on our baby moon during my second trimester right when I was around 25 weeks. I am so glad we did because I had no idea how different I would be feeling in the coming weeks. I am much more lethargic and just uncomfortable. I would have definitely not been able to do that long flight the way I feel now. Bathing Suits linked below!
After we got home from the baby moon I had the pleasure of getting a few maternity photos done with Allann Arnold Photography! You can see a few below + I will link both dresses.
With the addition of the larger bump, I had a lot of fun finding ways to dress it. I invested in a good amount of maternity basics from Target + Gap and I am really glad I did. I can usually make something non maternity work when paired with a maternity basic. I also grabbed a few core maternity dresses and bathing suits for the hot Texas summer ahead! You can shop all of my favorites below! Including my favorite non-maternity but works so well while pregnant leggings!
You may or may not know this, but I am not a huge fan of traveling. This dates back to any childhood memory for me due to anxiety. Anything out of my routine used to set off my panic attacks. So getting on a plane, traveling, sleeping in a new place can be a little […]
As most of you probably know, we live in Austin, TX! We’ve been told it’s a pretty cool city, and we’d have to agree 🙂 There is SO much to do here, and there’s something for everybody. Now that it’s warmer out (finally!), we love finding amazing outdoor spots to hang! Give us allllll the […]
I’m not gonna lie. I miss getting an Easter basket every year! Who doesn’t honestly? I have really sweet memories of walking out of my bedroom on the morning of Easter and seeing an adorable basket sitting on the kitchen table that my mom…uh, I mean, The Easter Bunny…had put together for me. I have […]
It’s no surprise that we love a good Target shopping spree around here! You know how it works, you go in for one thing and leave with a cart full of goodies that you somehow convinced yourself you can’t live without… been there, done that! And now they’ve sucked us in again with all the […]
Well, the weather can’t seem to make up it’s mind here in Texas (as per usual), but we’ve made up our minds that we are ready for Spring around here and that means busting out some flowers! I specifically love the beautiful and conveniently inexpensive stems from Trader Joe’s and when they finally put the […]
Seems like forever ago when we found out we are expecting a little babe. Our story might be different than most but it’s ours and I love it! We have been together for a little over 7 years and married for almost 3. We took our time with our relationship and I am so glad […]

HAPPY NEW YEAR! We hope 2019 is treating everyone well so far! A new year means new resolutions, and sticking to them is often easier said than done. By the time the holidays were over, I personally had eaten enough junk for a lifetime, and I was craving anything and everything green. No vegetable was […]
Don’t you just love the holidays? The lights, the cookies, the hot cocoa, the presents. When I get up in the morning the first thing I do is turn on the Christmas tree, because, let’s be honest, Christmas spirit is more fuel to my day than any cup of coffee could ever be. And after […]
