Maternity Wears: Week 18


The bump has come! It is still small and still questionable, but it is there none the less. I am starting to feel more comfortable in tighter tops so it seems more noticeable that I am pregnant and not just gaining lots of weight. Seriously? Does anyone like this stage? Like I said last week, I kind of hate these “are you pregnant or not” looking few months. Almost everything in my closet has stopped fitting. I have switched to a pair of maternity jean shorts that I pretty much wear everyday. All my high waisted skirts are too tight and the waistline on all my dresses just don’t work. This dress on the other hand is great! No waist line at all. Topped with a belt and a cat necklace made from a bullet and I was ready for a special date night with Kev.


Dress: Forever 21
Belt: Target
Sandals: Old Navy
Necklace: Gift

p.s. I am heading over to asos to go stock up on some awesome maternity basics. Did you know you can take 15% off of everything right now. Oh yeah! Use code “GOUSA”

p.p.s. you know what always makes you feel like a million bucks? A new pedicure. Ahhh my favorite!!

  1. You look gorgeous πŸ˜‰
    It’s the very first time I comment here, I’m reader from Portugal and I absolutely love your blog and your lovely family!
    Best wishes for you all *

  2. Oh my Jen… you look absolutely stunning!! Love the hair & the way that you’ve styled this maxi dress, it’s just perfect – AND yay so happy to hear you’re having another girl. How amazing for Rowan to have a sister, you guys are the cutest family ever!! xo veronika

  3. oh jen you look amazing for date night!

  4. I really like your haistyle in these shots. I think the offcenter bun and the bangs swept to the side is really cute. Modern and dressy but not fancy.

  5. I didn’t start following your blog until after you had Rowan, so I missed all of your previous pregnancy style files but I’m glad I’m on board for this time around! You look beautiful!

  6. You look so cute!! That necklace is seriously awesome! Just found your blog recently, and I’m so glad I did πŸ™‚

  7. You look beautiful! I love the dress/belt combo. x


  8. BEAUTIFUL!! The close up of you, head turned to your shoulder – is stunning!!

  9. Wow, you look so different in some way and soooo happy at the same time, I cant describe it! Congrats again!

  11. Super cute outfit! What a lovely little baby bump πŸ™‚

  12. Oh Jen, you look beautiful! Such a sweet ‘lil bump.

  13. Your hair looks adorable!

  14. Adorable! Love the dress… perfect and so comfy for when you’re pregnant! It was hard to go through that stage of do I look pregnant or just chubby? I hated it! Do you find that your bump is growing faster with your second pregnancy? I always heard that it did!

  15. drool. you are so dreamy! i loved every part of being pregnant, both times. it’s the least self-conscious i’ve ever felt, even with my triple chins.

  16. Jen, I love your blog and have been following for a few years. Normally I don’t get around to commenting, but I just wanted to say that you look absolutely beautiful in these shots! Your hair is so pretty in a side bun and that dress is to die for on you! πŸ™‚

  17. Adorable bump!! And, yes, that stage is the worst? Pregnant or one too many beers…one in the same, right? Congrats again!

  18. Jen, you look great! I’m in my ninth month of pregnancy right now and have been SO grateful for maxi dresses throughout my pregnancy. They’re so comfortable, easy to define the bump, easy to layer, and…for lack of better description…make me feel pretty! : )

  19. you look so happy jen πŸ™‚
