This may very well be the last fitted, non-maternity sweater I fit into over the next two months. And I have to accept that. I’m 31 weeks pregnant now, and Baby K is going to gain 1/2 a pound per week for the next 7 weeks (keep scrolling for a little update!). I literally have no idea how he is going to continue to fit inside of my belly, but then I remember I will most likely expand exponentially until then. It will at the very least be a fun experiment to try and make myself feel like a normal-sized human being, at least in my mind. Fortunately, this sweater is comfy and I love the wrap detail because it feels feminine and flattering. This sweater also has a slight off-the-shoulder fit, and I love that you can adjust it depending on your mood.
Can I give a little bit of praise to these jeans?! Thank goodness for inexpensive maternity jeans that are still stylish. I love this oxblood color, and even if you’re not pregnant, there is an exact non-maternity option! I literally cannot wait to purchase non-maternity jeans again (I have a list stocked up in my head).
How Far Along? I mentioned above, but I’m 31 weeks! Which means Baby K is about the size of a coconut and around 3.2lbs. I have about 9 weeks to go! My due date is April 8th.
Gender/Name? Baby K is a boy! As of right now, we don’t have a final name picked out. My husband and I have very different taste in names, and we can’t seem to come to a final decision. However, our top choice right now is Lincoln Taylor Kern. Taylor was my last name before I got married, and we both like Lincoln. I prefer more traditional names while Neil prefers more adventurous names, so it’s a good compromise.
Cravings? Not really…which surprises me! I expected to have all kinds of cravings because I love to eat, but there isn’t anything specific that I’ve got to have.
Best Part of Pregnancy? I love feeling him kick around inside my belly. It is such a wonderful feeling knowing he is growing in there! Also, everyone is super nice to me! People will kindly ask questions about my due date, gender, etc. It’s so nice to see kindness in strangers.
Worst Part of Pregnancy? As of right now, I feel like there is no room left inside of me! I can’t eat large meals without feeling uncomfortable, and sleeping is starting to becoming an issue. Some nights I sleep amazing, some nights I toss and turn every hour. But I guess my body is preparing me for the sleepless nights ahead!
