I have been asked numerous times about me doing a maternity post. Well, here ya go ladies. It's nothing fancy and going through my images have only noticed that I have worn the crap outta this plaid button up above. I have to admit though... I love it! and I splurged on it at Artizia. It feels too good not to wear it non stop.
5 WEEKS PREGNANT
Flowy top, normal jeans with the top button undone and a bella band on. If you wear a long enough top no one will ever suspect it/see it.
However this is the norm with baby number one. When it's your third you tend to show super fast. Well when your torso is 5 inches tall like mine, you'll show far quicker and larger then taller women.
red/coral lips are always fun too. Will give them something to look at rather then your growing tummy your'e trying to hide.

From here on out... I'm currently almost 37 weeks as I post this. Stick to comfy. loose waist bands and big comfy bras. You're on the home stretch. Do yourself a favour as well as keep all of your maternity clothes at hand. You'll be wearing them for a few months yet. Unless you're one of those assholes that leaves the hospital in her size 4 jeans.. I don't like you.ha ha
