Can it be that in just 6 weeks; well, 5 weeks 4 sleeps (who’s counting?) we will meet our 3rd child!?! Time really flew by this pregnancy yet I find myself saying, “I’m not going to make it.” much earlier than I did before! By the end of my days, I’m so exhausted, my back hurts, I’m waddling like a penguin and I feel like I should only have 2 weeks left. I can do this though, right? I am so excited and ready to start life with 3, especially now that all of our ‘OB-GYN Drama’ is over with! We found a new practice and I’m getting to know our new Dr. and happy to be at a hospital I love.
So, this week I started to really think about names for our baby. Nothing is standing out to me. Bri and I have a few names we like but nothing I love! I remember being pregnant with Rocco and not being able to choose a name because I couldn’t even picture what our baby would look like. We went into the hospital with about 4-5 names that we really liked and after seeing him, he was Rocco. Italian boy, big round face, dark hair… that was it. Rocco. Then when I was pregnant with Roman, he was named shortly after we found out we were having a boy. I loved his name as soon as I heard it. Baby #3? I am really stuck! We have 1 or 2 great girl names and Brian has 1 boy name, but like I said, I don’t love it. Help! I need a boy name! An Italian name, a strong name and one that flows well with Rocco & Roman. Because after all, I do say their names together ALL. DAY. LONG. And it would be nice to go into the hospital with a few girl and boy names. Anyway, that’s the baby scoop this week!
As far as my ‘fashion’ goes, I still love to wear leggings and ‘hide’ my belly under a big sweater or shirt or scarf. Gotta tell you, it’s hard to hide these days! This is what I wore… 5 weeks, 4 sleeps to go. YES. I’M COUNTING DOWN.
So, I pulled out this wrap sweater that I have… Never wore it much because the whole thing just confuses me.
I thought I was just supposed to put my arms through and toss one side over my shoulder, but then the other side looked goofy hanging down…
I tried to wrap it and tie it… didn’t work. Tried to tuck one side over the other, it got all ‘bunchy’. I ended up semi-wrapping one side and putting the other side over my shoulder. It worked for a few hours while I ran out but I took it off as soon as I got home. Never again. I tried.
As for the little details…
I can’t stop wearing my new watch that my in-laws gifted to me for Christmas. I just love how big it is and shiny and gold; I’ve wanted a gold watch for some time now! The bangles are from my mom who brought them home to me from St. John! Good find, mama!
Then I stacked 4 rings for a more casual look. I love to stack rings! 2 are my wedding bands (the diamond bands) and 2 are gold bands (from a set of 5) that are currently in Sara Blaine’s Collection. You can purchase the set here; and tell Vicki I sent you! I thought the diamond/gold pairing looked pretty!
Lastly, I slipped my PiggyToes in a pair of riding boots, threw a floppy black bag (from TJMaxx) over my shoulder & I was set to go!
It’s been interesting finding things to wear this pregnancy because my life-style is different than it was when I was pregnant the last time… and the time before that! I have 2 little ones and we run around a LOT so I guess that’s why flat boots, leggings and over-sized tops are what works for me! It’s easy, comfortable and stylish too!
Did you have a ‘go-to look’ while you were pregnant?
