Barefoot BlondeA reader sent me this Q&A as an idea for a pregnancy update post and I thought it was a good idea so here it goes…

HOW FAR ALONG? 25 weeks

TOTAL WEIGHT GAIN: Errrr should I be sharing this? Haha 16 lbs already! (wish I could insert emojis here)

MATERNITY CLOTHES? Yes – only pants though I don’t fill out the dresses yet

STRETCH MARKS? Not yet but I already have some on my booty from growing so darn fast so I do anticipate getting some.

MOVEMENT: Holy moly yes. I swear I am never going to get sleep with this one.. it feels like he is always moving and it is my favorite thing!

SLEEP: I sleep like a baby. And nap like a baby. I am taking full advantage of taking naps whenever I can. Also, BumpNest gave me this pregnancy pillow to help me sleep better (I was not sleeping good AT ALL!) and a relief system to help with acid reflux since I get it wayyy bad….. and ummm it is truly like sleeping with a cloud! I will literally use it every day even when I am not pregnant because it is just so soft and amazing! And me and my dog fight over who gets it haha he loves it.

FOOD CRAVINGS: Fruit! Oh my as you can tell from way too many of my fruit IG posts!! David is so sweet and makes smoothies and breakfast for me every morning to help with this craving 🙂 ..And crunchy tacos from Taco Bell or Del.. I actually told David one day without fully thinking, ‘I think I may want to be a vegetarian’ and he said ‘Umm what about Taco Bell?’ and I quickly realized how silly it was for be to think I could be vegetarian haha. Oh wait, and milkshakes.



WEDDING RINGS ON OR OFF? Mine is still too big.. so, on. I am actually hoping they swell a bit so my wedding ring will actually fit, I STILL have not gotten it sized!

Okay thats all! Hope you all are having a good week and don’t forget to check yesterday’s post to see all my favorite things from the Shopbop sale!!

  1. Just discovered your blog! Adore your style and you are too precious pregnant! I’m also expecting, and curious about pants that you post. The links that I’ve clicked go to non-maternity pants…wondering how you’re managing that or what types of actual maternity pants you’re wearing! SO difficult to find decent maternity clothes! Would love a post dedicated to maternity findings! Best wishes!

    1. Monica!! Congrats on your baby!! I hope you are feeling good and everything! So I have just been using a maternity band to hold my pants up and wearing longer shirts! It is a stretchy thing that loops around the pants and onto the button! I don’t know where to find them, my friend gave me hers but I know they sell them online! A maternity post would not be a bad idea! I will try to do that for my next pregnancy update! xx

  2. I just came across your blog through Pinterest And can I just say LOOOOOVVEEEEE!!!!! Your style is fabulous, definitely my style and I’m looking forward to getting lots of inspiration from you. I’m pregnant also , 21 weeks with my second little girl. Again so happy I came across your blog!!!!!!

  3. All I wanted was oranges. I must have 2 -3 big navel oranges a day. When my baby was born he had a problem with acid. I’ve been told there was no connection but….. Now he drinks orange juice like it’s water.

    1. Haha love it! There has to be a connection.. I swear I hear stories like that all the time!! xo

  4. “Oh wait. The Milkshakes” hahaha One reason I could never be vegetarian either!
    You are the cutest pregnant girl. Congrats!! So exciting! 🙂

    1. Haha exactly.. vegetarianism is clearly not for everyone! Thanks so much girl!!! xx

  5. Love the update! Congrats!

    Don’t even worry about stretch marks. I used Mustela’s stretch mark cream for all three of my pregnancies and I do not have any stretch marks. Buy two tubes of it now and start using it morning and night. And after you shower, bath and/or swim. It is a little sticky but works like a charm! They sell it in the baby department at Nordstrom’s as well as the beauty department.

    BTW: you look amazing! Congrats!!


    1. Oh really?! K good to know I am definitely going to have to get some of that stuff! My doctor keeps saying creams wont make a difference but some people swear by them so may as well do it anyways! Thanks so much Cathy!! xo

  6. awe… i love pregnancy updates. you’re so lucky to be craving something as healthy as fruit!

  7. Aww! Amber! I do the same thing on my blog every week! We are literally like a week apart so it was fun reading yours. We are the exact same on weight gain, cravings…that bump nest pillow…Don’t even get me started on that miracle! 🙂
    So glad you are doing well. You look great! Love, love your blog. Always have.
