Happy Monday ladies, and welcome back to this blog of mine! I am excited to be posting for you guys again. I suppose now that I am pregnant, I'll be a "Maternity Fashion Blogger"... but I hope that you non-prego ladies will still follow along for inspiration!
As far as the pregnancy goes... I want to do that fun Question & Answer posts each week (or every couple of weeks), because I always love reading these from other women and hearing their experiences. Plus, it will be a great journal of sorts, for me to look back on later on.
Weeks: 13 and a half -- And yes, I know that my belly looks huge in that last picture! Haha baby likes to make himself really big sometimes. :)
Total Weight Gain: About 9 pounds so far. In a Pregnancy book I'm reading, it said that in the first trimester you should only gain 2-4 pounds. Oops! Ha, but I never had morning sickness at all, so I didn't lose weight like a lot of women do.
Maternity Clothes?: By about week 8 I was having trouble keeping my jeans buttoned for a long period of time, and constantly found myself unbuttoning them if I was sitting, so I went out and bought a pair of maternity jeans. They just have two small elastic bands on the side, but otherwise look exactly like skinny jeans, and I love them so much! This coral dress was my second maternity purchase. :) (Jeans: HERE.)
Stretch Marks?: Nothing new. I already have a few on my hips and chest from growing, but no new ones yet. (Fingers crossed!)
Sleep: Well, I'm tired all the time. I go to bed seriously at like 7 o'clock each night -- sometimes earlier! I feel a little uncomfortable when laying down, mostly because before the pregnancy I was a stomach sleeper...but my pregnancy pillow definitely helps, and typically I sleep through the night just fine.
Movement: Nothing yet!
Food Cravings: Earlier on in my pregnancy I craved Taco Bell or McDonalds almost every day... which was not good! Haha, but this week I've been craving French Vanilla yogurt & frozen yogurt.
Anything making you queasy or sick?: Unfortunately, nothing makes me queasy or sick, so I just keep gaining weight! Ugh! :) But I actually am very grateful that I haven't been sick at all.
Gender: We don't know for sure yet, but at my last ultrasound the Dr. thought he saw boy parts. :) H and I also have thought it was a boy from the very beginning.
Labor Signs: No! Hopefully not for a loooong time. :)
Symptoms: I am uncomfortable a lot of the time. Gassy and bloated, and some abdominal pain.
Belly Button in or out?: In! (I actually have kind of a weird belly button, and I'm not sure if it will ever pop out? Haha I will let you know!)
Wedding Ring on or off?: On!
Happy or Moody?: I haven't really been moody or grumpy at all... But I am way more emotional than normal, and cry aaaaaaaaall the time. When I'm happy, sad, you name it! (I was already this way before the pregnancy, but these hormones have made it worse! Haha)
Looking Forward To: Finding out the gender for sure so we can start buying everything! I am really excited to decorate the nursery and get all the baby furniture and toys. Every time I'm at the store now, I get so excited to walk through the baby section. I just want to buy everything! Haha
Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by, and have a great Monday!!
My goodness! It has been so long since I have posted on this blog of mine, and I am so sorry! Life has been so busy and crazy lately. If you don't follow along via Instagram (@victoriafarnsworth), you may not have seen our big announcement... H and I are expecting a little one in September! We are so excited and can't wait to welcome out sweet baby into our homes-- if only September would get here faster! :)
I love this time of year, especially the fun Spring colors and prints. I don't know about you, but I already have MAJOR spring fever! I wanted to share with you a few of the dresses and fun colored shoes I've had my eyes on lately. I just purchased THIS dress to wear on Easter, and I am so excited! Hopefully it will look cute, even with my growing belly. (Did you know that after breaking up with me a bunch of times, H finally told me he loved me and said he wanted to be with me forever on Easter Sunday a few years back? Aww, sweet memories! Ha!)

Thanks so much for reading, and I will be back to my regular posts on Monday!
Happy Monday, ladies! I have been hard at work lately with something new and exciting! For those of you who follow me on Instagram (@victoriafarnsworth), you've already seen my announcement, but I wanted to post it on my blog as well. Remember this lace shift dress that I made??
And this one too??
Wellll.... I wanted to share the love with all of you, so I am now making & selling them! I have opened up shop here on my blog + on Instagram, and I couldn't be happier. After searching the web countless times to try to find a dress exactly like this, but that wouldn't break the bank, I always came up empty handed and frustrated. After seeing THIS tutorial, I decided to make one for myself. And after some trial and error, and finding exactly what worked for me, I ended up perfecting the dress. And then I made a few more in different colors. There was a lot of buzz about these on social media after I posted pictures, so I decided that I wanted all of you to be a part of this! These dresses are modest, yet classy and beautiful. They are also affordable, which is so important, since I know what it's like to be on a tight budget. What I love most about these dresses is that they will make you feel so beautiful. The design of the dress is nice, because besides being so timeless, it hides any imperfections, so you don't have to walk around trying to hold it all in. Plus, every time I wear one of these dresses, H literally can't keep his eyes (and hands) off of me. He says it's his favorite! Win, win... Right? ;) I know that it can really be hard to find quality pieces for a great price, but this dress does just that!
Currently, everything is handmade with love by Yours Truly. :) The available colors are Blush Pink, Cream, Champagne, and Black. The price? ONLY $45!! Ladies, that includes shipping!! So be sure to jump on the bandwagon now, because these dresses will only be sold for a limited time! To purchase, you can leave your PayPal email on my Instagram photo, or simply click the "Buy Now" button that you can find over on the newly updated SHOP page. It is also posted on the Side Bar. ------------------>>
I am so excited to share this with all of you, because this has been my dream + goal on this for quite some time. I appreciate all of the support you have already given me. I couldn't ask for anything more...
