Twenty weeks pregnant means I’m definitely moving from making regular clothes work into roomier garments (and yes, maternity clothes–I got desperate and acquired a few things recently!). This dress (which is not maternity–I bought it years ago) I knew would be perfect once the weather cooled down–and it has been so comfortable to wear! I know some people hate shift dresses on pregnant women (and I thought I’d shy away from this style), but let me tell you: this is perhaps the most comfortable I’ve been in a long while! lol. I think it really boils down to proportions though: since this is a shift shape, the shorter hemline works to counter balance the fullness.
Not much else to say about this outfit–so let’s talk about something exciting! A couple weeks ago I had the anatomical ultrasound, where we found out the baby’s gender! I was pretty convinced I was having a boy–but was I right?
Nope!!! To say we’re excited to welcome a little girl into our lives next year doesn’t quiet sum it up! Either would have been delightful and welcomed with open hearts, but I have to admit the idea of a “mini Casey” (as everyone keeps referring to her!) is more than a bit fun! There has been a lot of knitting of little girl things (including the sweater above; I plan on doing a knitting post in a couple weeks) and perhaps a few stops at thrift stores for cute girl clothes since we found out. I can’t help it: suddenly teeny tiny clothes are irresistible to me! Poor SH–he keeps coming home to the top drawer in the nursery dresser getting more and more full. At least we’re doing it on the cheap (thrift stores and hand-me-downs from kind friends–something we’re really thankful for!). hehe!
Now just 19 more weeks until we meet her! It can’t come soon enough…
