Feeling good

Hello everyone!  This week is just rocking and rolling along isn't it?  I'm kind of in love with my outfit today.  I actually meant to wear this for Inspiration Monday this week, but the leggings I wanted weren't clean that day, oops!  

This sweater and dress are both from the swap - though I only intended to take home the sweater. Confused?  Well what happened when we were done is everyone took a bag of leftovers to give to our designated thrift store or charity of choice.  I had the bag in my car for the longest time and then brought it in my house over the weekend because I was going to be hauling some stuff home from Sam's Club.  I decided to peek in the bag and see what was left in it - and saw this dress that I completely missed the day of the swap.  And I decided to try it on and see if it would fit over the bump.  And well, it did.  So, hopefully none of the fellow swappers mind that I kept one more small thing!

Sweater and dress - swap
Leggings - Simply Vera, Kohls
Boots - Target 

And even if it is making me look quite big in profile, there is something about this outfit that is making me feel really good.  Clothes that do that are just the best aren't they?

Speaking of other good things, we had an ultrasound yesterday to check on little man's progress - both because of the Gestational Diabetes and also because the doctor was concerned I was measuring small.  Well the good news is, he's doing just fine and is exactly where he's supposed to be!  They estimate he's about 5 lbs 10 oz and should probably get close to 8 lbs over the next five weeks or so.  He's in the right position and everything else looked great.  Such peace of mind I tell you - I wasn't that worried, but then again, it's so easy to let Dr. Google try and tell you something is wrong when your doctor says "well you are a little on the small side for what week you're on."  So anyway, all is well.  And it was so fun to see him at this stage, we haven't since 20 weeks!  I think he's going to be pretty darn cute if I do say so myself!
