5 non-maternity dresses & 19-week update

by Gabrielle Loomis

I am getting very close to being half away through my pregnancy, yay! That’s why I decided I should do a 19-week update so you all know what’s happening with me and baby.

Next Saturday, I reach the 20-week mark and you know what that means, right? That means that this week I get to see my baby through an ultrasound and we get to find out if we are having a boy or a girl. Since both my husband and I are very anxious people, we are going to find out the gender on Saturday with a reveal party. With our first baby, Raphael, we did the same thing. We had a party where we ate cupcakes that were filled with blue frosting. I think this is a very fun way to find out the gender. My husband is convinced we are having a girl, but I don’t have any guesses. This pregnancy has been very similar to my first one: no sickness, mood swings here and there, salty cravings, same energy level. What’s been really different about this time around is that I’ve been working out more than the first time. I’ve been going to the gym 3-4 times a week to stay strong and fit for the months to come.

Like with the first pregnancy, I didn’t buy a lot of maternity clothes. This time, I am doing the same thing. I’ve been buying clothes that I can wear both now and after the baby is born. This dress is non-maternity but the fabric is very stretchy and perfect to show the bump.

I linked 5 non-maternity dresses that you can wear both pregnant and after baby.

1. Nordstrom: Leith Ruched Long Sleeve Dress

2. Nordstrom: Show me Your Mumu Off-the-shoulder Dress

3. Nordstrom: Leith Bodycon Tank Dress

4. Nordstrom: Free People Mini Dress

5. Nordstrom: Billabong Bodycon Midi Dress

Have a wonderful week, loves!
