get up get moving.

Well we are officially almost ready for baby. I talked a little bit here about reaching the 36 week milestone, but I wanted to share some more images from that day.

These last few months as I’ve gotten bigger my motivation has slowly waned, but these last few weeks I have realized that if I actually put a little effort in I will feel much better. I never really ‘feel’ like waking up in the morning, or going for a walk, or even getting dressed and putting on make-up but if I push through it and actually follow through and do those things my day goes much better and I feel better about myself.

I’ve also been trying to get as many things prepared for baby as possible. Freezing meals, folding tiny little onesies, and blowing the birth pool up in our living room…all signs point to baby!

maternity jeans

I posted here and here about my lack of maternity wear. And I’ve got to admit it, around 28 weeks I started to feel really uncomfortable with still wearing regular jeans and a belly band. I got into a little bit of a style rut and was overall just not feeling good about myself. I’m not one of those women who sail their way through pregnancy glowing. I feel big and uncomfortable and my skin breaks out like a teenage boy – it’s just not pretty, so I tend to struggle with feeling that way while pregnant.

I posted about some maternity style options here and finally got to the point that I couldn’t take it anymore – I had to get something comfortable to wear! GAP maternity jeans came highly recommended but the price tag was not desirable, then I found a pair of maternity skinny jeans on sale and had a 40% off coupon for them – it was a no brainer! Because I’m so short {5’4″) I decided to get the ‘ankle’ length, and they fit perfectly! What was amazing about this purchase was how much of an impact it made on me – it’s amazing what a simple pair of jeans can do to your confidence! I immediately felt more comfortable and at ease, having to constantly pull up my regular jeans and fix my belly band was exhausting! I would highly recommend to any pregnant women out there to invest in a good pair of maternity jeans that you actually feel comfortable in – it will make the world of difference I promise!
