One of my favorite things to wear this winter is this beautiful black and white Me Jane gilet coat. You can wear it with pretty much anything! The bonus is it's extremely warm and feels like a big blanket. Jeans have slowly disappeared from my closet since this baby boy is getting big but that just means more dresses this winter. Women's Mariah Over the Knee Boots are a winter must have. Target never seems to disappoint when it comes to the quality of their shoes. Grey sweater dress is from FOR ELYSE and can be worn during and after pregnancy.
The moment I found out I was pregnant with baby #3 I felt a mix of emotions. 3 kids?Man oh man we are really doing it. I remember back in high school we had a project in my nurse aid class about what our future looked like (kids, marriage, work, and so on). Guess what my answer was for the amount of kids I was planning to have when I got married? 3? Nope! 4 Nope! 20, yes, 20! So you see my love for kids has always been there but the 20 portion has definitely changed. 2 Weeks ago we found out that we were having another boy and boy oh boy were we excited. Don't get me wrong ,I have always wanted a little girl that I could dress up in little tutus and play baby dolls with but having another boy just adds to our crazy little home of cars and toy guns. I mean I am already a pro at raising boys so what's another one right?
This pregnancy has been by far the most difficult. I had extreme nausea my first 4 months and lost almost 20 pounds. I tried everything possible to get rid of the symptoms or to at least make me feel a little better, but nothing worked. I took every medication possible and googled every single home remedy but nothing would do the trick. Green mint gum did help at times but I still could not get out of bed to do a single thing. Having 2 kids and being sick just makes everything so much worse because all you want to do is take them out to play and cook meals without puking. I would cry myself to sleep most nights wishing 9 months would just pass as soon as possible so I could be my normal self again. I remember watching a cooking show and crying like a baby because I wanted every single thing on that TV but couldn't imagine it entering my mouth. Having bought a new home this past year and being out of work just added on to the stress.
I'm in my 6th month right now with only 3 months to go!!! I still get nauseous from time to time but definitely not like it was before. So there is hope for moms out there, after the first trimester I promise it gets a little better. Everyone's pregnancy is different and for those that felt better than ever during their pregnancy, I am completely jealous of you and believe that you should have the 20 kids I used to dream about.
