CAN'T WAIT TO MEET YOU, PJ // family maternity photos

Oh my goodness, baby girl! I don’t even know where to start. You have made your presence known during this pregnancy! Starting at Week 4, I thought I had the stomach flu… but nope, that was just you, letting me know you were here! I stayed nauseous 24-7 until about week 18, and then I finally came out of the fog, so to speak.

AN OPEN LETTER TO MY FIRST-BORN:

Thank you, Sesame Street Live, for sponsoring this blog post. Scroll down for an exciting giveaway at the bottom of this post!

Dear Emaline, E, Em, Emmie, etc…

You’re about to be a big sister and I am in complete denial. None of it feels real, and I honestly have no idea what to expect in the coming weeks.

THE 5 ESSENTIAL MATERNITY CLOTHES TO BUY

Pregnant and overwhelmed with all of the different maternity options out there (or lack thereof, in some cases)?! GIRL, I GOT YOU. This time - I decided to try something different. I decided to buy JUST the basics, and all the other clothes I need I will size up. And guess what? After I have this baby… I will have an AWESOME POSTPARTUM WARDROBE of regular clothing that isn’t skin tight while I’m getting back to my regular mom-bod.

"YOU AREN'T PLUS SIZE ENOUGH"

“What happens when you finally lose all the baby weight, what will you call yourself then?”

“What size are you REALLY, though?”

“Are you calling yourself plus size just because you’re pregnant?”

“What size were you before you got pregnant?”

These are just a few examples of questions I get ALL of the time. From real life friends and family, to people I don’t know on the internet.
