Prego With Style | Week 14, Purple & Blue

Today's outfit was worn around my 14th week of Pregnancy, otherwise known as the week of July 16th. I was feeling quite good at that point and then just one short week later I started having pains in my stomach which could only mean the uterus was stretching to make room for the baby to grow...and it was starting to push my stomach out a bit too and that wasn't comfortable either. Anyway, here is my outfit and a few belly shots since my cousin wanted to see some updates on how big the baby belly was getting.

Blue Dress: $5 Clearance at Walmart! (2013)
Brown T-Shirt Scarf: DIY Project I did in September 2012.
Purple Cardigan: Clearance rack at Old Navy, 2010.
Brown Sandals: Thrifted!

I had to have Autry take several photos...this one was my favorite.

This is a selfie...notice only one had. I put this one up too because it really shows how big my baby belly has gotten recently. According to my chart I've gained 11 pounds since being pregnant. My last visit to the midwife I had lost 3 pounds. She asked if I had been eating healthier. I have been eating more raw fruits & vegetables so that must be helping! :)

I wasn't into fixing my hair that day, but I wanted it out of my face so I did a quick braid and snapped the rest of it back with a hair clip. Notice how thick my hair is getting? (Maybe it's just me...but I think it's getting darker too.)

So there's my latest outfit. I generally wear the same black skirt (see this post) with a loose T-shirt since that's the most comfortable thing. But when I do dress up or wear something different I do try to get a photo so I can share the outfit ideas. I'm still looking for maternity clothes. I found the blue dress and a black one just like it at Walmart for $5 each. There is plenty of room to grow in them and I can layer up in the fall/winter to make them last longer.

What did you wear most when you were pregnant?


  1. Great idea for a series! Dressing when you are pregnant is so different, because comfort matters soo soo much. This is a great comfy + cute outfit!

  2. Helen, You look so beautiful! I love the color of that dress! My mom sewed some jumper dresses for me and I wore my regular shirts under them. I also found plus size sweaters that we 'tweaked' for my tummy, and again, I wore my regular shirts under them. I didn't want to blow my budget on clothes that I only needed for a few months. As well as you can sew, I bet you could do some tweaking, too! ;-) -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures
