Happy happy Wednesday! Half way through another week, come on weekend! We will be celebrating our youngest nephew on my husband’s side’s birthday with family this weekend and I can NOT wait to spend some time relaxing in the pool at his pool party! He’s a big two year old now, which is just crazy!!
I also had my glucose test yesterday afternoon, but have not heard the results yet. It really wasn’t as miserable as what people make it out to be. It tasted like a crazy sweet and tangy orange gatorade. The worst part was sitting in the blood lab waiting room for an hour! Hopefully I’ll hear the results today, but I’m hoping no news means good news!
Before we get into today’s topic, let’s quickly chat about recent walks!
I’ve taken things super easy this week because we’ve been under a pretty serious heat advisory. The past two days, and the next 9 days, are all forecasted at 99-103 degrees, plus the heat index! Needless to say, it’s VERY important to modify any time spent outside, and be smart. I’ve kept my walks limited to 15 minutes, and I don’t usually take them until later in the night when it’s a few degrees cooler, and the sun isn’t blazing. I’ve also been sure to take water with me, because even if I don’t FEEL thirsty, this heat can dehydrate you extra quickly. I had intentions of just going to the gym and walking on the treadmill, but I so so enjoy and need a few minutes of fresh air everyday that I just haven’t been able to make myself give it up. Plus, I can’t exactly walk Truckee at the gym! And poor girl needs her exercise too!
If you’re pregnant, and out in this heat, please please be careful! Slow down, hydrate, hydrate, hydrate, and don’t over do it!
Pink Blush Maternity Review
When I first got pregnant, I held off on buying maternity clothes for as long as possible because I was worried that once you hit “that point”, it was welcome to the land of frumpy, unflattering muumuus and hideous stretchy pants.
Fortunately, there actually are cute boutiques out there who specialize in flattering and trendy maternity clothes! Praise. The. Lord. And, affordably too!
I was recently asked to pick out a few dresses to share with you, and I absolutely love each of them! Here’s what I chose:
This is your basic spaghetti strap maxi dress. It’s super comfortable, and I’ve been wearing it to work with a beige cardigan to cover my shoulders. It might be a tinnnnny bit short on me, but I’m also thinking the bump pulls the dress up in the front. I’m wearing a size small, and it feels just about right.
I fell in love with this dress as soon as I saw it online! The print, the cut, I just knew it screamed COMFORTABLE. I also love that it’s 3/4 sleeve because it eliminates the need for a cardigan, as I’m always freezing at work. But, the floral is so girly, and can easily transition into early fall. It’s definitely the “most modest” of my maternity dresses, and Adam isn’t the biggest fan of it, (of course!), but if I could live in this dress for the remainder of my pregnancy I would. It’s THAT comfortable.
3. (My Favorite!!) Basic Neon Pink Chiffon Maternity Dress
I have been on the hunt for another short dress that I could wear to a friend’s wedding in August, and I think this one will be perfect! It’s super lightweight, flowy, doesn’t cling, and doesn’t require a strapless bra! It comes in multiple colors, and I’m tempted to order it in a darker color as well. But, I. Love. This. Dress. I feel confident and comfortable in it, and I love how the tie in the back looks. AND it survived the washing machine. Long story short, when we took these pictures we took them really quickly and I accidentally got a lip gloss stain on it, which I could NOT get out by hand. (Commence pregnant hormonal devastation!) So, I braved the delicate cycle then hung it up to dry, and it still looks fabulous! The stain is almost entirely gone, but leave it up to me to get a stain on something the first time I wear it! Point being, this dress is sturdy and great quality! (As are the others, but this is the only one I’ve machine washed so far.)
If you’re in the market for maternity clothes, Pink Blush has got you covered, for sure. I feel like I’ve told everyone I know about them! They also have TONS of ridiculously cute tops, bottoms, and options for nursing.
I was provided these dresses, but was not compensated for my opinions or my time.
How do you stay safe in the heat while pregnant? Or not pregnant? Have you heard of Pink Blush? What style of dress are you currently wanting to add to your wardrobe?
