This week hasn’t been a good fashion week for me. I’ve been feeling kind of schlubby these last 2 days and especially today… which of course happened to be the day that I met the head of the department I am now supporting as well as some other senior managers. Awesome. Lesson? Always try to dress nicely at work to avoid feeling like a turd.

Top: The Limited (from many years ago).
Skirt: The Gap (also from many years ago). I love this skirt because it has some stretch to it.
Shoes: Black flats from Target!
Jewelry: Long necklace from Forever 21. They really have the best selection of inexpensive accessories.
And holy hell – I look HUGE, right? That’s the problem with snapping these photos at the end of the workday. I tend to be a bit bloated from all the food I ate during the day.

Top: Simply Vera from Kohl’s. This is one of my favorite tops. It is so loose and flowy and comfy…
Shoes: Black flats from Target.
You can see it in my face that I am TIRED. I dressed tired today and I AM tired so this whole look just screams, “go to bed!” And despite how baggy everything is, none of it is maternity wear.
Fun / Strange Pregnancy Stuff: So while I thought I could feel the baby a few days ago, I haven’t felt any activity since and it is SCARING ME. What I am feeling is my heartbeat… in my belly. And it is f’n crazy. When I sit still to try to concentrate on feeling those sweet little flutters (or gas bubbles) – I start to feel my heartbeat. I almost feel like I could just take my pulse.
I read somewhere that Charm City Bambino is at the stage where you could hear her heartbeat with a stethoscope. Because I haven’t really felt any more movement – I think I really want to go get a stethoscope just to make sure everything is okay. I mean – what the hell is going on? I’m also starting to feel this strange warm sensation after I eat… located near my stomach… and I swear it feels like something is leaking inside.
Does pregnancy trigger paranoia? I am FREAKING OUT. And where does one buy a stethoscope?
