maternity project: 26 weeks

   26 weeks
Baby is the length of an english hothouse cucumber, 14 inches and weighs about 2 lbs.
He is now able to hear my husband and I when we have a conversation.

Below is a photo of us at The Monsterbooth for the Annual White Linen Night's party our neighborhood in the Heights has....just being silly :)

I've been on an etsy baby buying are two of my purchases.
We are going with a nautical theme & instead of stripes I opted for this gorgeous organic whale quilt.
I am in love!!!!

Vintage Maternity & what to wear

 I'd though I would share some tips on how to wear vintage while your pregnant.
Regular maternity wear is so pricey, I believe its because its called MATERNITY & they use more material on certain items.

Dressing in the summer can be quite easy, as long as it isn't too long or polyester.
The heat will get to you.
Here are some of my picks for maternity wear.

1. Vintage Mexican Dress
(this a photo of my belly during our maternity project)

Mexican Dresses are great for maternity, since there tent dress, 
nice & flowy, room for your growing belly. 
You can always belt it at high waist.
This is a great etsy find...for $39 at TigerlilyFrocks

2. Caftan 
$60 found at needsgoodhome
another light weight dress, with room for your belly to grow.

3. Skirts
You can do cotton skirts, full skirts, maxi skirts as long as it has an elastic waist 
and sits on your high waist. Skirts are easy to pair with tanks or blouses.

$20.71 found at MaPtitChouette

$56 found at FancyThatVintage

Boho Maxi Skirt/ tube dress 
2 outfits in can belt it at high waist or wear under your belly.
$15 found at Jewelry601

4. Smock Dress
Easy & comfy to wear...just be sure there is enough belly space.
$35 found at ramblinvintage

$38 found at CapriciousTraveler

5. Sequin
Who says you can't wear sequin while pregnant!
Great for a night out on the town or a fancy dinner, you can pair a sequin jacket with your maternity shorts or maternity skinny jeans. Just add a tank underneath...what a great way to show off your belly

$26 found at heightofvintage

Also search on etsy under maternity and you never know what you mama's to be will find :)

maternity project: 25 weeks

25 weeks & baby weighs about 1 1/2 pounds, 
about the weight of a rutabaga and is about 13 1/2 inches long.
He is starting to gain his baby fat.

This week has been a good week, minus my toes starting to swell, 
I don't think the Texas heat is helping any. 
These past 6 months have gone by so fast! I can't believe he will be here in 3 months.
And we still have no name, any names suggestions you may have?
I find it more difficult for a boy, then a girl, you can be more creative with girls, boys not so much.
We have a list but Hugo & I can't decide on any.
