Grow, Baby, Grow! / 17 Weeks


Here it is in all of it’s glory– the bump!  It seems to really have started to push it’s way out this week, so I thought it might be time to start documenting… and buying more maternity clothes! (This stretchy little number is from the Nom line at Belly Dance Maternity.  I love it because it fits me snugly now, but there is also plenty of room for this bump to grow in the upcoming months.)

What are all of you up to this weekend?  I am flying to New York for a few days for work on Monday.  Any friends around next week?  I would love to sneak away for coffee or dinner!  I am in total shock that it is going to be November when I get back.  How did that happen?  Should I have started holiday shopping already?  If you aren’t planning on hitting the stores this weekend, do make time to check out these posts from around the web.  (They’re totally worth it, I promise!)

  1. Stretchy dresses quickly became my first trimester staple and remains that way to this day.

    Even by 6 weeks I couldn’t button up my pants (I wear mid-rise to high rise things).
