OOTD 22 weeks pregnant

I’m currently 24wks pregnant, photos were from a few weeks ago.

I’m not one to complain, but let me elaborate once I say it. The worst part about pregnancy for me is sleeping and eating 😭😂.

Elaborating: the acid reflux that keeps me awake at night and uncomfortable. It started later on with bebs. But with this pregnancy I’m only half way through. Give me all the tums.

Secondly. The food. More specifically my tongue. I get so sensitive to everything. Things burn my tongue and my tongue gets raw and so so sooooo sore to the point where I can finish some meals. It’s not all acidic stuff either like you’d think. Apples, strawberries cause it. But I can eat all the oranges. I made homemade fudgesicles and boyyyyy I tried to finish one and just had to put it back in the freezer 😭..and if that wasn’t bad enough, I get geographic tongue which doesn’t cause pain but is gross to look at.

Look at how proud bebs look after he climbed up that staircase, and is waving at Mama!!
Go ahead, complain about a few things to me in the comments lol. Whether pregnancy related or not! Being preg during summer is no joke. I’ve never been so overheated in my entire life. This photo was taken when it was cooler out…but I seriously cannot wait for sweater weather to arrive so I can wear this one in particular way more often. I tend to pop this on in the mornings since I get up at 6am everyday lately (and it’s obviously chillier then).

And, not to complain but to compliment…oh my good golly this Marnie Turtleneck Sweater from Shop Oriane (gifted to me) is absolutely so fantastically cozy. The mornings and evenings here where I am in California are finally starting to cool down and allow me to wear some comfortable long sleeved tops. This one is a maternity brand, but as you can see you can totally rock it when not pregnant either, since it’s not ruched at the sides or have a specific “spot” for your growing belly. I LOVE it.

WHAT I’M WEARING:

Marnie Turtleneck Sweater
H&M maternity leggings (and in other pics: non-maternity Zara jeans)
Lucky Brand loafers

GIVEAWAY! With Bump and Bae

GIVEAWAY! I’m really excited to be working with a Canadian boutique located in Ottawa, Ontario Canada 🇨🇦❤️🇨🇦
Bump and Bae offers a curated collection for maternity and mama-friendly. The tank top I’m wearing has hidden zips on either side for nursing. You’d be none the wiser, I bet if I didn’t even tell yas! This tank doesn’t have ruching at the sides so you don’t have to be pregnant, or even a mama to buy/wear this. I’m definitely not giving this one away after my pregnancy/ nursing time is up! It’s such a good basic.

And these jeans? They’re from Bump and Bae too. They’re ankle grazers and fit great. I love both pieces, they both have washed up well (I always wash in cold and hang most of my clothes to dry anyway, always the safest bet) and they look super stylish and fit incredibly well. For reference I’m wearing a medium in both the top and bottom.

Exploring California redwoods

Took bebs out to the redwoods to have lunch late last week. Always feels so good to be surrounded by nature like this and get away from the urban lifestyle…not that there’s much of that going on with covid/shelter in place. It’s much quieter here, more calm. Sometimes the most simple moments are the best ones. Bebs had a great time exploring here and I’m definitely bringing him back here soon…if not this week, then next. It wasn’t crowded, but by the end of it I started to get a bit uncomfortable with two Mother’s and their billion children racing around us that I ended up just leaving the area to find somewhere else to explore. 

I mean just look at that light beaming through the redwoods. I went mid-day pretty much, so imagine what golden hour would look like here. Freakin’ unbelievable.

I brought our UPPAbaby MINU stroller for bebs, but really didn’t need it. In fact, next time I think I’ll skip on bringing it, you know – to tire him out more for a nap when we get home, ha!

This wee baby in my belly is some kicker b’ys…doesn’t stop! I wonder what that means lol. I don’t recall feeling bebs kick this often, this early on. 

I’m wearing the Elise Sweater by Oriane (gifted) in a size small. It’s a small women-owned mother and daughter team based in Minnesota. It’s maternity/nursing friendly and beyond. It comes in three great neutral colours and it’s $36. They also sell the most adorable and affordable baby clothes…take a look.  

Bebs pretty much has free reign when he’s out exploring with me. I always let him choose which way to go, and I think he really enjoys that bit of freedom. I said just above but I LOVE this area…we are totally going back soon.
