22 Weeks

I'm aware that I'm a horrible blogger but I'm trying to get better. Hey, after all, I am new to all this. But as usual, my pregnancy update is a little late. More so now because this was last weeks picture. I still wanted to share it tho, I promised myself I would track my pregnancy & I'm trying my best to.

• Maternity clothes? In full swing. Having to buy more & more all the time.
• Stretch marks? None. Thank The Lord!
• Belly button in or out? Still in.
Baby bump? Oh yes.
Sleep? Still sleeping a lot.
Symptoms: Heartburn, some headaches, frequent urination, itching.

5 under $50: Maternity


I don't want to spend a lot of money on maternity wear since this might be the only time that I'll be pregnant, so I browsed sites for cute looks for cheap. I've had trouble looking for maternity clothes that are both comfortable, cute & affordable. Here are some of my favorites that I'm craving to own.
