Whew, it’s been one of those weeks! Yesterday we received a knock on the door from a few policemen who said they received hang-up calls from our home. The thing is that they said it would have come from a landline, and we don’t have a landline! They left after shrugging and saying that sometimes moisture in the lines causes this, and now I’m afraid that it will happen again, ha! Our upstairs air conditioning unit also has quit on us. So boo to that. But really, these things are very minor problems, and I’m thankful for God’s goodness.
Today I wore a very comfortable knit top from Ross, and paired it with a thrifted navy skirt.
Brown Striped Maternity Top – $9.00 (Ross)
Navy Tiered Skirt – Thrifted
Jewelry – Cato
As you can tell, I have a pattern of buying tops at Ross and jewelry at Cato! Both stores have excellent prices for these particular items. I’m wearing comfy workout shorts underneath my skirt to prevent chafing. I slept with my hair in a bun (totally unintentionally) which put a slight wave in my hair.
Now for a small pregnancy update! Earlier in the week I went to my doctor for a standard OB appointment. Everything is still looking great. I haven’t gained any weight this month…which is actually a good thing since it’s my habit to gain a lot during my first trimester. I just feel so sick if I don’t eat all of the time, ha! I feel Miss Mabrey moving all of the time now, but her kicks are most noticeable when I’m laying down.
My midwife told me that I should eat a breakfast of eggs, cheese, and water two hours before I take my glucose test this time. I’ve been asked to take the three hour test during two of my prior pregnancies now (which is no fun), so I’m taking her advice to heart. During my last pregnancy, I had a #1 from Chick-fil-A and a Diet Coke on my way to be glucose tested. Oops. That is coming up next month.
I have one fabulous long denim maternity skirt, but I’m on the lookout for a nice knee-length one. I’m short, so everything I’ve found so far hasn’t quite worked…they are either too short or too long. Thrift stores are usually my best bet when I’m on the lookout for these kinds of items.
Thanks for stopping by!
