{Pregnancy Week} Meet the Bellies

4

You may have noticed there’s been a little more pregnancy-related content here on the blog lately. That’s because we have FIVE regular contributors who are expecting!

We’re dedicating this week to all the ups and down of pregnancy, with five original posts on everything from nursery decor to how to include older children in the anticipation of a new baby. We also have a special giveaway lined up (hint: check back tomorrow afternoon if you’d like to win a maternity or newborn photo shoot!)

To kick off Pregnancy Week, we wanted to introduce our expectant moms and have them tell you a little bit about their pregnancies…

Kirsten

How many weeks are you? 33

Boy or girl? Girl (our first one!)

What food are you craving right this moment? Honey Nut Cheerios

All your clothes are clean. What’s the first outfit you wear for daily maternity cute/comfort? A non-maternity navy long cotton sundress from Gap

If you had to choose between a massage and a long, uninterrupted nap, which would you choose? A nap! With the exception of one long nap I had in my first trimester of my first pregnancy (5 years ago!)  I have not taken a nap since childhood. My body just cannot fall asleep during the day. I love the idea of naps! They sound amazing!!!

What have you enjoyed most about this pregnancy? I had very little morning sickness, which is a BIG change from my first two pregnancies.

What are you most looking forward to post-delivery? Getting to wear a normal wardrobe again. I miss my clothes. Oh, and of course the BABY!!!

Joy

How many weeks are you? 19 weeks

Boy or girl? Making it a surprise

What food are you craving right this moment? salad and cheese

All your clothes are clean. What’s the first outfit you wear for daily maternity cute/comfort? one of my empire-waisted sundresses

If you had to choose between a massage and a long, uninterrupted nap, which would you choose? massage

What have you enjoyed most about this pregnancy? feeling baby kicking!

What are you most looking forward to post-delivery? snuggling that little bean!

Cate

How many weeks are you? 25

Boy or girl? boy

What food are you craving right this moment? peaches

All your clothes are clean. What’s the first outfit you wear for daily maternity cute/comfort? cotton dress

If you had to choose between a massage and a long, uninterrupted nap, which would you choose? massage

What have you enjoyed most about this pregnancy? celebrating this life with friends and family

What are you most looking forward to post-delivery? seeing baby’s little face!!

Sarah

How many weeks are you? 18

Boy or girl? We find out this week! I’ll reveal in my post on Thursday of this week… 🙂

What food are you craving right this moment? A cobb salad with all the fixings

All your clothes are clean. What’s the first outfit you wear for daily maternity cute/comfort? These pants (so comfortable) and an extra long H&M (non-maternity) tank top.

If you had to choose between a massage and a long, uninterrupted nap, which would you choose? A massage. My second-trimester energy is great right now, so while a nap sounds nice, I’d rather have a great massage.

What have you enjoyed most about this pregnancy? This is most likely our last, so I’m trying to enjoy it all. Emphasis on “trying”. Starting to feel movement is the absolute best.

What are you most looking forward to post-delivery? I’m due in January and have never had a winter baby. Weirdly obsessed with cold-weather newborn clothes. Also wine.

Beth

How many weeks are you? 34

Boy or girl? Boy!

What food are you craving right this moment? Sweets. To the point that we can’t have ANY on the house or I will eat all of them! I had to pull the plug when I ate an entire pint of Ben & Jerry’s in one sitting without realizing it.

All your clothes are clean. What’s the first outfit you wear for daily maternity cute/comfort? I really hate everything in my closet that fits right now and I refuse to buy anything new. A toga made out of a king size sheet is about the only thing that would be comfy!

If you had to choose between a massage and a long, uninterrupted nap, which would you choose? Hands down nap.

What have you enjoyed most about this pregnancy? I have always enjoyed baby hiccups. They crack me up!

What are you most looking forward to post-delivery? I am very much looking to a lovely (read: large) glass of wine!

We hope you’ll follow along with our pregnant mamas all week long! If you’re expecting too, let us know and share your answers to the questions above in the comments!
