I’m officially 37 weeks and it’s my last week of work before Maternity Leave! As much as I would love for baby #3 (trust me, we will announce the name soon) to come ASAP, I’m looking forward to getting some good quality time with Scarlett and Landon. As far as how I’ve been feeling… I’m still feeling pretty good fortunately.
I just get tired so much faster, which is understandable, since I’m carrying around all this extra weight and a full term baby! Haha. Sometimes I forget that I’m 37 weeks pregnant and try to do everything I usually do but I end up having to listen to my body and ask my husband to do my normal tasks… which he gladly does! He actually gets upset that I still do a lot of the things I do and reassures me that he will love to do anything to make my life easier.
I can’t wait for the extra time to do all of the baby laundry and get everything ready for his arrival… basically get into full time nesting mode. I’m also planning a bunch of activities to do with Scarlett and Landon while I’m on leave, as well as focusing a ton on my blog!

Ok you guys, I have some exciting news to share… I will be taking over the @inspirepregnancy Instagram ALL day tomorrow! I will be sharing photos throughout the day as well as taking you through my day via Instastories PLUS hosting a few amazing giveaways of some of my favorite mom/baby products! Hope you follow along 🙂
P.S. This whole outfit is non-maternity! Links underneath that last photo 🙂 The top is an XS and I sized up on the skirt, size Medium. Since I’m a shorty, I was able to pull the skirt up over the belly and the length was perf!
Dress: PinkBlush – Shoes: F21 (sold out; similar) – Sunglasses: Nordstrom B.P. (old; similar)
It’s just getting hotter and hotter in San Diego, especially where I live, since it’s a bit more inland… I am dying!! Thank goodness for air conditioning lol. Any way, you know you’re short if you can wear a maternity tank top as a maternity swing dress! Haha. This peplum tank top is from PinkBlush and I love it! The quality is so amazing for the price and it’s seriously so soft. What’s even better is that I can totally wear it postpartum too… score! Isn’t the added detail in the back super cute too? It just adds a little somethin’ somethin’.
I paired it with some nude lace up heels from Forever 21. Not gonna lie, as I’m nearing the end of my pregnancy, I’m getting a lot of water retention in my legs (and face) as you can see. Def. not my fave pregnancy symptoms haha. The nude heels just creates the illusion that your legs are longer than they are and I need that right about now haha. Let’s just say I am so looking forward to working out and shedding the baby weight once I get cleared to!
P.S. So I was diagnosed with slight pregnancy anemia after getting the results from my most recent blood test… say what?! I’ve never had this issue during my past pregnancies so it’s new to me. Basically, I’m not getting enough iron so I have to take iron supplements and extra fiber to help it. Thankfully it’s nothing serious but I was definitely worried when I got the call. Speaking of which, it’s time for my second iron pill of the day!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Okay, I am obsessed with this Multiwear Summer Tank Open Weave Sweater that doubles as a sleeveless poncho. Oh and wait, that’s not all, it’s also a nursing cover! As a mom who’s into fashion, I think it’s so doable to find stylish pieces that fit your lifestyle. Nursing tops are great since I don’t need to worry about a nursing cover when breastfeeding in public since I would already be wearing one.
I love that I can wear this top 2 different ways to change up my outfit looks… it’s like 2 pieces of clothing for the price of one, right?! Haha. It’s also available in another neutral color that can go with a lot of outfits. For reference, I’m wearing a size small and it still gives the oversized look that I love even with my 35 week old baby bump 🙂 You gotta check Multiwear out for other nursing tops & and covers! I really love black “cardimom” I wore a lot when nursing Landon as a newborn. Check out that throwback post here!
Hope you all have a wonderful hump day!

I don’t know about you but most of the diaper bags for sale out there are NOT cute and just super corny… am I right?! Well thanks to the Tote Savvy, I’m able to make any bag a diaper bag! The Tote Savvy is a removable insert that has pockets and organization and they come in different sizes and colors to fit inside most bags. This is so genius because you can still get that super cute bag for yourself and double it up as a diaper bag with baby necessities. Here are some of the features that the regular size includes:
- insulated bottle pocket
- key clasp
- washable changing mat
- cell phone pocket
- flat pocket for paperwork
Isn’t it just perfect?! It’s so easy to remove and switch bags. I’m the type of person that uses different bags to go with different outfits so I love that this is easy to just pull out and slip into whatever bag I decide to use for the day. There’s so many pockets and inserts to fit my stuff too so I can leave the house with just one bag filled with my stuff and the kids’ stuff.
Make sure to check Tote Savvy out! They even come in a mini version if you prefer smaller purses. These can make the perfect give for any mama or mama-to-be! Oh and if you sign up for their newsletter on their website, you can get 20% off 😉
P.S. I am loving Bambo Nature diapers (they’re the softest eco-friendly diapers ever) and products. I love using products on my babies that I know are safe for them. We are so happy to be Bambo Nature ambassadors 🙂

Fellow mamas and mamas-to-be, you need this Molly Ades Portable Nursing Poncho! You know I love having versatile pieces in my closet cause I love getting a good use out of all my clothing to get my money’s worth… am I right ladies?! Well, not only is this Portable Nursing Poncho something I’d wear when I’m not pregnant, because I love the oversized look, but thankfully I can wear all throughout my pregnancy too (even when my belly is the size of a watermelon). AND it’s loose enough to fit a baby in it while nursing… score! I wanted black, of course, cause it can go with everything.
When I first opened up this package in the mail, the whole poncho was folded into that pouch in the front of my belly and zipped up. I was like, wait, where’s my poncho?! Then I unzipped it and the pouch was the poncho! Lol. Mind blown. I seriously love that cause it’s on-the-go and I can easily store it in the diaper bag.

Since I’m almost 34 weeks, pretty soon I’ll be nursing a newborn with this poncho. You guys, have to check out Molly Ades for more super cute maternity/nursing wear! This poncho comes in other cute colors too 🙂
Have a great weekend everyone!

Yes!! It’s that time of the year when I can dust off all of my sandals and start wearing them again. Okay, I’m totally exaggerating because I live in San Diego, California where the weather is mostly perf… (am I right fellow San Diegans)?! But any way, it’s definitely the season to splurge and buy more sandals… to make it easier for you, I put together a bunch of super cute pairs that I will have to convince my husband that I NEED to buy lol 😛 They’re all flat because I’m about to be a whale in my 30+ weeks of pregnancy and need to be comfy haha totally kidding, kinda.
Happy Shoes Day Tuesday!!!
