WIWW + Bump Update + Giveaway Winner!

Happy "B"ump Day!

Hope the middle of the week is treating you well today. 
First off, I would like to announce our giveaway winner - Monica @ Smudged Colors!
Congrats and thanks for entering! 
Please remember there will be giveaways in the future so stay tuned to see what other goodies I have in store coming up!

Over the Weekend...
If you follow me on instagram, you might have noticed that I received a little free surprise gift from my friends at Silver Jeans. :) A denim vest, in all its glory. I've been telling A that I wanted one and was planning on thrifting and making my own.. But not anymore!

So of course, I could not wait to try this baby on! Love the stud detail on the back of it. Of course, I cannot close it because my little baby girl is in the way. In fact she is growing out of control right now...

Speaking of the Bump...

How far along? 27 Weeks 2 Days
Total weight gain: A whopping 7 lbs. However, I lost weight in the first trimester because of all the morning sickness. Doc says they look at the overall pregnancy, but I should start ramping up my calorie intake! I can do that!
Maternity clothes?  Not yet. But let me tell you in the last week the belly has been growing. So I might be stuck in tights and sweaters for the rest of the pregnancy and I am totally okay with it!
Stretch marks? Not seeing too any on my tummy, but I have some on my chest as that grew very quickly!!
    Sleep: Not great. I wake up 2-3 times a night for the bathroom and I just can't seem to get comfortable some nights. I'm looking for a good pregnancy/body pillow.
Miss anything? The one thing I do miss about the fall is having a spiked apple cider, or a glass of wine every now and then.
Food cravings: I am craving sweets lately. I never liked sweets too much growing up, I'm not big on chocolate and just never understood all the sugar.. But that has been changing ever since I've been pregnant. This is a very bad thing. LOL.
Anything making you queasy or sick?  Thankfully no!
Gender: Girl :)
Labour signs: I believe I had my first Braxton Hicks contraction, which was sort of weird - but no pain so it was okay. Ahhh!! I'm getting closer to the real deal here shortly. 
Symptoms: Fatigue, hormonal acne, backaches. For the most part I am just starting to feel uncomfortable all the time. 
Belly button in or out? My belly button is starting to look flat which means it may be on the verge or poking out. 
Wedding rings on or off: Still On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Moody. I feel like I've been moody this entire 6 month journey -_-
Looking forward to: Finally starting the nursery & we get to see our little bean in about 4 weeks! Can't wait to get a better view of my baby girl :)

Enjoy Your Day!
