We finally had a chance to take our maternity photos. Luckily, my sister in law has photography experience and offered to take the photos for us! 💕 We didn't want to do anything too formal or staged and are so happy with how they turned out!
I found this dress on Amazon prime and decided to give it a try after reading the great reviews. It is not a maternity dress, but definitely works as one since there is a lot of extra room from the waist down. This dress is flowy, lightweight, comfortable, and has plenty of room to accomadate my ever growing bump. I ended up loving it so much that I ordered it in three other colors!
Now that we are finally in the third trimester, I figured it would be a good time for another bumpdate!🤰🏽
How far along are you: Just over 30 weeks!
Do you have any cravings?: The cravings haven't changed too much since my last bumpdate. I still crave cheeseburgers once in a while. I am also currently on the hunt for a pineapple pie, which probably sounds strange to most people, but I have always loved pineapple pie. 🍍 If you know where I can find one, let me know in the comments section below!
How much weight have you gained?: I have gained 26lbs so far.
Can you feel them move?: I can feel and see them move! These girls are both quite feisty!
How are you feeling?: I still feel pretty great considering I am carrying so much extra weight! The most challenging thing at this point is that the girls are having a major growth spurt and it is causing my skin to stretch and itch like crazy! Ice packs and sweet almond oil are the only things that have been helping soothe the itch.
Are you using anything to help prevent stretch marks?: I am still using the Clarins Tonic Body Treatment Oil and Stretch Mark Minimizer. I use the Clarins duo at night and this sweet almond oil during the day since it is less messy.
I hope you enjoyed this week's bumpdate! Let me know if you have any other questions in the comments section below!
Yours Truly, Victoria
