Maternity Mondays: Nautical Stripes

*I usually share outfits that emphasize flattering an apple shape, but while I’m pregnant, I’ll be featuring maternity outfits. This is my second pregnancy. 

Second pregnancy update

Nate and I are only planning on having two kids, so after this second pregnancy, I’m getting my tubes tied and we are done. Done. done. done. I’m so done with being pregnant. This second pregnancy compared to my first has been so difficult. I’m already well into my second trimester and food still doesn’t sound appealing. I still experience a little bit of nausea but mostly, it makes me sad, former foodie that I am, that food doesn’t sound good. Every day, I’m wracking my brain to try to think of one item of food that I could possible eat. Last night it was peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, some cheese curds, and a strawberry lemon passionfruit sorbet.

I wake up almost every morning feeling like a headache is about to come on and even if I get 7 plus hours of sleep, I’m still tired. And I feel bad for my little energetic toddler. I just don’t have the energy to play with him as much as he or I would like.

Why the changes from first pregnancy?

I wonder to myself, is it because I was heavier when I started this pregnancy compared to when I started my first pregnancy? Is it because I’m older now (36)? Or is every pregnancy just different, some harder than others? I’m curious.

Still, it does help me to get up, shower, and dress up. It gives me a little more energy. Are you in your second pregnancy? How has it compared to your first? I’d love to know.

This is my favorite fedora hat. Great if you have a big head like mine. It’s also nice and sturdy.

Silver framed aviator shades if you’re in the market.

A similar fitted denim jacket. 

Navy and white striped maternity top. 

Gray maternity pencil skirt. 

Gray peep toe ankle booties.
