This dress is going to be great for summer. The arm holes are a bit big though so you’ll need a bandeau or a bikini underneath. It’s comfortable and breezy, which is just what I’m going to need when I get very large this summer so I don’t overheat. All you ladies with summer pregnancies, am I right? No really, I’m asking. I have no clue what I’ve gotten myself into. Anyway. It’s a great dress for daytime in the city and will work just as well as a beach cover-up. The gorgeous print helps hide the bump well, too, which is nice. I was stuck wearing lots of tights and pants during my first pregnancy, so I’m thrilled by the prospect of breezy dresses and bare legs. Suffocating hosiery and pregnancy just do not mix. So, hey there summer, I’m just about ready for you.
In other news, we find out the gender in a few weeks (YES! Of course we’re finding out!) and I’m starting to wonder if there’s a baby boy in there. This pregnancy is so different than my first, and I know they say each one is different no matter the gender, but I can’t help but wonder. By this time with Isla I was feeling fantastic. Most days I didn’t really even feel pregnant. This time around I’m still incredibly exhausted and can’t stop gagging. I know, TMI, but what the hell man?? I’m not complaining, really, I’m not. Things could be so much worse. I’m just rambling on about how I truly can’t believe how different this one feels. I also have no gender preference this time. I so badly wanted Isla to be a girl, mostly because her name was already picked out and I was in love with it (I still am!), but also because I just had this feeling; I knew she was a girl. We’d love a son at some point and I’d be thrilled if this one’s our boy, but after spending 16 months with my sweet girl, I’d be just as thrilled to have another one (even though she’s rapidly approaching the terrible not-yet-two’s and we’re at a total loss). Either way, we’re going to have our hands full. Advice for how to bring a baby home and raise two kids is welcome!
