Styling the baby bump: What I wore at 17 weeks

Another week has gone by and my baby, at 18 weeks, is now the size of a croissant. Yum! In addition, my days of sickness have officially been over for almost two weeks now, which makes me so happy! I finally feel like I have an
almost normal appetite, and I've already enjoyed my first sweet pastry, a Twix bar, and indulged in an iced latte. Lattes are my favorite coffee drink and I hadn't had one since first finding out I was pregnant, because they've been on the aversion list for so long. I am beginning to think the honeymoon period of the second trimester is beginning to settle in, which I'm so thankful for. The only thing I miss is being able to sleep on my back. Does anyone else wake up repeatedly through the night switching from side to side?

As for what I wore during the 17th week, I haven't had to purchase any new clothing yet, although the rubber band trick has been used with my high waisted jeans. The weather in Texas has also been really hot (high 70's and low 80's), which can be expected, but my wardrobe hates succumbing to these temperatures. However, I think it soon might be time for me to invest in a pair of drawstring linen pants and maybe a linen dress.

    1. Thank you so much! I still can't believe there is a tiny human growing inside me. I've been anticipating its little movements, and can't wait to feel them. :)
