I really tried some of those serious blogger faces...but it wasn't working out. Besides, I'm just getting more and more excited as each week passes, so my faces looks like this pretty much all the time. I wore this outfit to pick up my sister from school and get my business cards printed. As I continue to have less clothes available in my wardrobe that continue to grow with me, I go for comfort first while hoping to look decent. All these items are simple basics pulled together by my everyday cheetah loafers and turban, the only maternity item being the pants. While I'm not big on maternity clothes, pants are a necessary as you need the extra room in the belly area. I actually really love these pants which I purchased while pregnant with Jolie and continued to wear before Grey even came along.
On the pregnancy front, everything seems to be going great. I can't believe I'm almost entering the third trimester. Grey is kicking up a storm and even refused to cooperate with the ultrasound tech during his Fetal Echocardiogram Test this week. While this ultrasound is one to check for heart defects in fetus' of high risk pregnancies, Grey managed to somehow to maneuver himself in a position to flash his private parts to the poor lady, lol. She kept joking that my son was a fiesty one and that he was winning the battle. After tracking him down, and having to move me around to try to find him, it was determined that his heart looks great. Thank you Jesus!
