Off the shoulder dress & 8 month update

Cupcakes and cashmere dress

Still loving the off the shoulder trend but need to update it for the weather so went with this sweater dress version.  This Cupcakes and Cashmere dress is not a maternity dress but fits comfortably in my usual size.  It is a great fall piece that works with my growing belly.

Speaking of my growing belly, I am in my third trimester now and the fatigue has come back again.  Fortunately, it is not as bad as the tiredness I had in the first trimester.  Also, something no one told me about, is the pressure and the pain that comes along with it.  I can feel the pressure at the bottom of my abdomen and sometimes it can be a bit painful when I walk.  Which brings me to walking...I have made sure to walk a lot during this pregnancy especially since I haven't been to the gym as much in the last two months.  But after a while, I do get a little short of breathe and have to take it easy.  There is also the sleep issue, it is definitely more difficult to get comfortable at night but I place a small pillow on my side under my belly to help me sleep at night.  All in all, I would say I am very fortunate and having a great pregnancy.  There are things I am still learning about as we go but I know it is all worth it in the end.

Thank you for reading,

Andrea
