On April 1st, I found out I was pregnant. Although seemingly the most overplayed and outdone April fools joke there is, what I was experiencing was anything but. So that was then and this is now – and here I am 20 weeks along and in for the ride of my life. The photos above were taken 8 weeks ago during my 12 week ultrasound. I have to admit, dressing a baby bump I thought would be a piece of cake but it has been quite a challenge – a challenge I am up for however. My biggest challenge these days is trying to find items in my closet that aren’t high waisted and cropped. Did I own anything that covered my whole stomach? Did I ever own any low rise jeans? Where are these items! Needless to say, it’s been warm out in this beautiful SoCal sunshine, and finding clothing that doesn’t suffocate me is vital. Rompers and kimonos are a must this season especially for women like myself with growing baby bumps. I also like to wear platforms and sandals that are opened toed so my poor feet can breath in this summer heat.
