Introducing My Baby Bump + $75 Giveaway

45

Ok, this post is for those of you that wanted to see THE BUMP! I don't really like having my photo taken, but I'm going to try and overcome my camera shyness for the sake of documenting my pregnancy. After all, this is a special time of life, and I think I'd probably regret not taking photos to look back on. SO, here it is...the baby bump!

Baby bump + Pink Blush Maternity giveaway

I'm at 20 weeks now, and I feel like it's really starting to show. For the first few months of my pregnancy, I mostly wore baggy tops to hide my belly. But now that we've told everyone, I'm excited to start wearing fitted clothes again!

Maternity dress

This striped dress from PinkBlush is the first legit maternity dress that I've worn, and I love it. It's so comfy, and hugs my belly just enough to show it's shape. They have tons of super cute maternity clothes...don't miss the giveaway at the bottom of this post!

20 weeks baby bump

Side note: Have you ever noticed how pregnant women always put their hands on their bellies? I think it's just an instinct...I've noticed myself doing it all the time now, without consciously thinking about it. Partially because it's fun to feel my growing belly (so weird!) and also because it's a lot easier than yelling, "Hey everyone, this is a baby bump, ok?! I'm not just fat!"

Pink Blush maternity giveaway

Now, are you ready for the giveaway? One lucky lady will win a $75 PinkBlush gift card! They carry both maternity clothes and non-maternity, so you can get a new spring outfit whether you're preggo or not. Enter below, and good luck!

Thanks to PinkBlush Maternity for partnering with me on this post!

    You look beautiful!

    You look super cute. Take pictures! I know it feels weird when you are camera shy, I tend to take very few selfies these days but I always take pictures while I'm pregnant. It's so fun to look back. And then on later pregnancies you can compare and that's fun too!!

      Thanks, Jen!!! Yeah, I rarely take selfies but it's definitely more fun now, with changes to document. It feels less narcissistic and more like the photos have a purpose!

    Congratulations! I hated buying maternity clothes but that dress is so cute!! I'm tempted to buy it now for my next pregnancy (is that crazy?!).
    • Posted by Aileen on Wednesday, March 23rd, 2016

      Not crazy!!! I feel like you could wear it even now, before you get pregnant again. It's just a nice, stretchy sheath dress.

    You look adorable!

    I love how far maternity clothes have come!
    • Posted by Aileen on Wednesday, March 23rd, 2016

      TOTALLY. I look back at pictures of my mom when she was pregnant with me and my siblings, and I'm so grateful I don't have to wear a giant sack for 9 months! Haha.

      Congrats, Erin! I felt a little weird shopping for maternity clothes (especially in-store), but I love the items I've picked up so far. It's really nice to wear something that was intentionally made for a bump!

    Oh yes....always holding onto that bump. Love it. Not only that, but have you noticed so many maternity shirts/dresses are striped? Some people don't like that, but I always dug the stripes! Love the bump!
    • Posted by Aileen on Wednesday, March 23rd, 2016

      Yes, I have noticed!! I'm a fan of stripes, so it works for me too.
