Merci + 23 | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

Merci + 23




shirt: Urban Attic leggings:forever 21. Sandals: found here!

Hi!! Phew, it's been a busy past week!  Next week I am headed to Iowa to visit my brother and his family so I've been trying to get ahead on sign orders so I don't have to bug Jason with it while I'm gone (welcome, J!! ;) ) My brother is a dentist so I am getting some bonding done on my front teeth to even them out and fill in the gaps that drive me CRAZY. So I am pretty excited about that!!

I leave on Monday so it's crunch time until then! For anyone keeping track (mostly just me probably) I am 23.5 weeks! Baby is the size of a papaya (like 8inches) and she is kicking like crazy! It's the weirdest/coolest feeling. Luckily, I don't really get sick anymore. Mostly just if I eat junk food or take out or too many carbs like pasta, THEN I feel sick. Baby girl hates all my favorite foods! RIP mac n cheese. But it's cool, she is forcing me to eat healthy and I guess I can thank her for that in a few months :) 

I got this shirt from a boutique last month and as luck would have it, makes the perfect pregnancy shirt! I was so glad I found it, and it was the last one on the rack, scoreee! I've also been shopping for baby girl, too! I found like this gold mine of cheap/ cute/ trendy baby girl clothes so needless to say, I stocked up on a few things and I cannot wait to dress her up in them! I haven't been too interested in buying her clothes yet just because I have no idea how big she will be but I couldn't help myself today. Oops.

Also I got a handful of emails + comments with tips on doing natural labor and I just want to say THANK YOU! Every piece of information is sooooo helpful and I appreciate it so much!! I want to do a post sometime on why I want to do natural labor because I realize it isn't the most common thing that people strive for haha but it just feels right to me and I hope all my preparing pays off :) I'm not opposed to medicine AT ALL, just want to do something I know my body is capable of anddddd some other reasons!

  10. I seriously can't wait to hear your labor story! I went the epidural route, but I have MAD respect for any woman who goes the natural way. That is wonderful, and oh so empowering. (: Hope all is going well and have a safe trip!

  14. That shirt is so cute and perfect for Spring! I love anything French! I have bonding on my front teeth now, but I am getting veneers as soon as I am done with Invisalign (I had braces, but having everything straightened before they put the veneers on). I've had the bonding since I was 12 and it kept staining and wouldn't match the rest of my teeth, so I'm looking forward to the veneers. Its a long process to get there tho and I'll be glad to be done with the Invisalign! Have fun visiting with your brother!!!
