33 weeks

9:53 AM

At 33 weeks I finally caved and bought maternity pants... And let me tell you - it was the best decision ever!! Now whenever I need to leave the house my options are no longer striped skirt or striped dress? Because lets be honest I live in leggings at home. Other developments include the wonderful addition of a shed to our yard which allowed us to clean out a lot of junk from the baby's room. Speaking of which we are almost, almost done! We're just waiting on the rocking chair and some artwork and then we will officially be ready to move on to things like packing the hospital bag ! I've been feeling good, baby is squirming more than kicking now and we are just both so excited to meet this kid!!
P.S. Question for you mamas out there: those first weeks before the cord falls off what are they supposed to wear? Can you put them in onsies or are two piece outfits better?

  1. The little shirts that snap up + pants or just a diaper are best! They can wear onesies but it might rub the stump, which could irritate it and/or stain the onesie with blood and other goo.

  2. I put both my girls in anything loose (tops and onesies) - cords are usually a lot stronger than they look!

  3. I am not a mama but a big sister - I remember my parents putting my youngest brother in one piece sleepers AND two piece outfits when he was new-new.

    I just wanted to comment to say that you are super adorable!

  5. I used the onesies. The diapers were a little big on my son so they kind of served as a protective barrier. Hope that helps:)

  6. I'm a new mama to a 6 week old baby boy, and while we were in the hospital, we just kept him in a long-sleeved top and swaddling blankets. When we left, we used two-piece outfits (a top that snaps up the front and a pair of pants) for a couple of days. Once the stump began drying out (it doesn't take long!) we switched to onesies--by that point, it wasn't irritating to him, nor did it leave stains on his clothing.

    By the way, I absolutely loved your old blog and am happy to have found your new one! Based on some of your posts, it seems we live near each other--I'm over here in Crozet, just outside of Charlottesville.

    Congratulations to you and your husband, you're in for a wonderful ride.

  7. Hi! Fellow mama from the motherland here~
    I dressed my daughter in loose onesies or sleepers that zipped up. & little pants with a very very loose elastic.
    Agree with above comment ^^ cords are stronger than they look!

  9. Side-snap tees (without the bottom) long or short-sleeved.
    I dressed my son in a side-snap (kimono) tee, a diaper & swaddled in a blanket for most of the time til his cord stump fell off. The little gowns with the open/elastic bottom are great, too, because they are loose & easy to lift up for diaper changes, etc.
    I am two weeks behind you and just purchased paint for the nursery...so exciting!!

  12. I had a bunch of onesies from my baby shower but for the first couple of weeks I preferred super soft and cute PJs that open completely down the front and button or zip closed. Holding a tiny (OMG, newborns are so tiny!), squishy, floppy baby and supporting their head while trying to pull an outfit over their head was sooo daunting at first. I also had a winter baby (Jan 7th) so I liked that the PJs were warm and cozy and footed.

    Awesome outfit!

  14. I am also a mama-to-be so this question about cord stump safety is relevant to my interests. :) I just wanted to say that I adore your maternity style and am 34 weeks right now myself so I feel like we're in tandem! Although I am not as fit as you and I had to buy maternity pants a while ago they were absolutely a revelation! So. much. more. comfy!

    Congratulations on your pregnancy and thank you for the outfit inspiration!
