Baby News!!

I know the count down to baby says that we have 23 days to go, but it’s wrong! Due to my blood pressure issues we knew that he would be born before 40 weeks, but everything was always still up in the air. Well, I saw the doctor today and we are good to go! Sunday evening I will go into the hospital to have the induction process started. So Monday (April 14th) will be baby day! I’ll post pictures of him as soon as I can…although I may be quite busy next week! And yes he is still nameless!
****
That post takes me way back.  Back to the days when life seemed so much more simple.  But was it? Really?  Sure I wasn’t busy with children.  Sure I had a job outside of the home back then.  Sure I had time to go shopping and shopping alone.  Sure I didn’t need to worry about getting places on time because I was always on time.  (Children have a way of making you late.)  Sure I always wore the type of jewelry that I wanted to wear.  Earrings especially.  Dangly ones.  Ones that you can never wear with a baby around.  See?  The things that you don’t think about until they are gone.
Life back then was quite dandy, but would I change my life for the world now.  Never.  I love being a mom.  I love it and wouldn’t change it for the world.  They are my everything and it’s even more dandy that life used to be.

Speaking of things that are dandy…  Have you visited the Seeing Dandy lifestyle blog yet?  It’s a place to see all things that are dandy.  Because well it’s dandy.  🙂

Tales From The Recliner

Tuesday, April 8, 2008

recliner

Well, I’ve been on bed rest since February 6th and I finally decided to try and figure out this blog thing! Why the delay you may ask? Especially since I’ve had plenty of extra time on my hands! For starters alot of my friends use this as a way to post pictures and updates of their kids for family and friends to see, so I was mostly waiting on the baby to actually be here to do that. Of course I’m clueless at creating it and I also delayed because I wasn’t really sure what to blog about. I mean how interesting would my blogs have been? Probably something like “day 32: yet another day spent on the couch” or “there was this really, really, really good show on daytime tv today” (catch the sarcasm?) or the ever popular “it is now day *input any # between 1 and 60* of my house arrest sentence”. There is only so much that a person can say about being stuck at home! And most people wouldn’t understand unless they have been through it. All you have to do is think of the most boring day of your life and multiply it by 2 months! Weeks ago one of my friends asked me if I was about to go insane. I told her that I was so past that!! You lose it pretty early on and then you just get used to it. Kind of reminds me of when our cat had to wear a cone around his neck for a month. At first he tried to get out of it, but after a while he just gave up! Sure it’s what I have my degree in, but I won’t bore you with all the psychology behind it! 🙂

Milan Maternity {Giveaway}–CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Think about your wardrobe: do you have at least one top that is so comfortable and so flattering that you can put it on with anything–dress pants, jeans, a skirt, sweat pants–and instantly feel glamorous, even if your hair is a mess and you have no makeup on? I found one of those tops from Milan Maternity, and to feel that way while also being pregnant is no small feat!

logo

Milan Maternity is an online maternity boutique whose mission is “to provide designer style that flatters your new shape at prices you can be happy about.” And boy, have they got some cute styles! They have gorgeous tops–some that are dressy and some that are more casual–and don’t even get me started on the dresses! Super adorable. Most of their clothes can be worn before and after pregnancy, making them even more of a great deal! Here’s just a sampling of their cute collection:

collection

The shirt I chose to review was the Adriana in Bordeaux. This top is one of their “transitional” pieces that can be worn before and after pregnancy, and while nursing! There are hidden snaps and a shelf bra-type insert in the top that allow for convenient, discreet nursing while wearing the top. So much better than exposing my entire back and flabby middle while trying to feed a fussy baby! I can’t wait to wear this top with a tiny belly and try out the snazzy nursing feature.

snaps

The quality of this top is top-notch. The fabric is soft and stretchy and the ruching along the sides is long enough to to stretch over my growing belly (with plenty of room to spare!). It is well made and the style of the top is classic–I’m a total sucker for the faux-shrug style. My only complaint is that the “hidden” snaps for nursing end up showing more than I’d like them to. The fabric that is supposed to cover them gets bunched up, revealing the snaps most of the time. Surely a small snap on the outside to hold the extra fabric down over the snaps would solve this problem quickly, but it is one thing to be aware of.

collage

This beautiful top sells for $39, which is a deal when you consider that you can wear this shirt for years and years to come, not just 6 months of pregnancy.

me

I am super impressed with Milan Maternity’s selection of maternity and post-maternity clothes and would totally recommend their clothes to anyone! You can only buy their clothes online, but they have excellent shipping methods and great rates. And one lucky reader will get to choose a maternity top of your own for FREE!

MommyLicious Maternity {Giveaway}

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

If you missed my maternity review yesterday, you also missed the fact that I said that because I am pregnant, I am focusing on maternity companies for my giveaways for the next few weeks. So if you’re pregnant, hold your bladders, because I’ve got several amazing maternity giveaways headed your way! Here’s the first of many maternity giveaways to come: MommyLicious Maternity!

logo

MommyLicious Maternity is a site dedicated to pregnant and nursing mothers. They carry affordable and stylish maternity tops, bottoms and dresses in regular sizes as well as plus sizes. Plus they offer nursing clothing, nursing pajamas, maternity bras, and maternity lingerie! These ladies are dedicated to helping you look and feel good while you’re pregnant and beyond! And their customer service staff is available to help you with any questions you have about their clothes, sizes, styles, etc. Check out some of the cute tops they carry below:

tops

I had a hard time picking just one top to review because there were so many different styles to choose from! I eventually decided to review the Yacht Bound Maternity Top in Teal/Banana. I love stripes, so this one immediately caught my eye. The teal/banana combo is so summery and since I will be pregnant all summer long I thought it would be perfect. The top also comes in peach/banana striped (also summery and cute!) and black/white striped.

shirt

I love the fabric of this shirt. It’s thin and lightweight, perfect for hot summer days. The material (100% Rayon) is soft and stretchy and glides smoothly over my big belly. The length is pretty long and can stretch down to my mid-hips, but because it’s a thinner material it usually creeps its way back up to the top of my hips after a few minutes.

tag

The neckline is a generous scoop but I didn’t feel it was too low to show off too much cleavage. In terms of size, I feel like it ran a little small. I was a medium pre-pregnancy, but since my chest has grown considerably in the last few months, the medium was a bit tight and I would probably feel more comfortable in a large. The good news is because it’s so stretchy, I will be able to wear it post-pregnancy and no one will know it was ever a maternity top (except those people who saw me in it every week for the past 6 months!).

casual

This top is only $19.99, and most of their tops run about $20-$30. These clothes really are pretty affordable and should last you through a few pregnancies, so go ahead and check out their collection of maternity pants, skirts, sleepwear and dresses–including bridesmaid and wedding dresses! One lucky winner will get $25 to spend on anything at MommyLicious Maternity!

Win $25 to spend at MommyLicious Maternity!

** The winner of this giveaway will be drawn no later than the morning of March 11, 2014, and will be emailed within 24 hours.  If the winner does not respond within 48 hours, a new winner will be drawn.

Blanqi Bodystyler {Review}

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

I believe I’ve mentioned before that I’m pregnant–17 weeks to be exact! So if you’re also pregnant, you’re in luck, because I’ve got a whole slew of maternity reviews and giveaways up my sleeve for the next few weeks! The first of many is from a company called BLANQI, and you ladies who are “in the family way” are going to love their Bodystyler!

logo

BLANQI was started by Valerie (great name!) and Sabina, two moms who were so frustrated by the lack of stylish and supportive pregnancy garments on the market that they decided to launch their own line! They designed their Bodystyler and took to the streets of NYC to sell it. Today, their products are sold online as well as in retailers such as Nordstrom, Target and A Pea in the Pod.

top

The BLANQI Bodystyler is a seamless maternity support tank that is an absolute DREAM to wear! You may be looking at the tank in the picture above and thinking, “No way. That looks WAY too tiny to fit any pregnant woman and be comfortable.” But that’s the trick! It’s tight enough to be supportive and but it’s not in the least bit restricting. Just look at the layers of support in this baby!

shaping

The front panel hugs my tummy–like, it literally feels like a happy, smooth, warm hug on my growing belly. The sides are tight and help smooth my love handles. The back support is wonderful and helps me to have better posture throughout the day. The straps are soft and stretchy and don’t dig into my shoulders at all. This would be awesome to wear while working out–I’m pretty sure I could even go running if I had this baby on!

busty

As you can see by the picture above, the tank actually goes below your boobs. Kind of strange, but it works. It also pushes your boobs up and helps support them as well. I don’t really feel like I need my boobs to be pushed up or emphasized any more right now, but I don’t think my hubby was complaining 😉 My only complaint would be that I usually wear tank tops under shirts so as to not show off my cleavage, so when I wear the Bodystyler with a low-cut top, I then have to wear another shirt/tank to keep me modest up top. Not necessarily a fault of the garment, just my own personal level of comfort.

casual

The length is long enough to act like a belly band, holding up loose maternity bottoms or keeping non-maternity jeans together when unbuttoned. It’s also long enough to wear as a tunic with leggings and really dress it up!

dressy

I chose to review the mint color because I think it’s so fun and cheery, but the BLANQI Bodystylers also come in white and black. There is also an option to choose a Regular length and a Longer length tank. I was sent the regular length tank but I think the longer length would be better because the top tends to creep up throughout the day. The BLANQI Bodystyler is sold for $68.00, which seems pricey, but believe me when I say that it is worth the price. When you are pregnant and your (everything) hurts because you’re carrying an extra 30 pounds right in the front of your body, you will be so glad you spent the money on this amazing support tank!

Cake Lingerie {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Yesterday was the day to end all pregnant days.  I was up all night the night before because I was uncomfortable, I could hardly clean my house or do laundry without feeling pain in my lower back and hips, and I swear that I had to go to the bathroom every half hour throughout the day.  I have had a fairly easy pregnancy so far, but yesterday was my “Welcome-to-the-third-trimester” wake-up call.

And, really, it’s not going to get much easier for several more months!  I’ll continue to get larger and larger and my body will ache more and more, only to have the baby and find that although my body is no longer as heavy as it had once been, my body shape has inevitably changed and will continue to change while we all figure out nursing.  Don’t get me wrong — I love pregnancy and I especially love the end result of welcoming a new baby into the world, but sometimes, this part of womanhood can be difficult to embrace.

cakelingerie-logo

Cake Lingerie brings you delicious fabrics and indulgent details that give you a taste of your individual self. Within the practical world of pregnancy and breastfeeding we find the feminine in you. Although you may be a mother, here you are a woman first.  Feel confident knowing that each item has been innovatively engineered. From our flexible wire bras that mold perfectly to your changing body to technically constructed soft cups and seamless transition bras, each piece is as intricately unique as the different stages of your changing body.”

toffee

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to review the Toffee Clear Strapless Maternity Bra and Brief Set (which also happened to be last month’s Bra of the Month!) from Cake Lingerie, especially during this time when I’m not feeling especially feminine.  This maternity bra can also be used as a nursing bra, with cleverly hidden straps near the floral additions.  I really love that the fabric on the outside of the bra is a neutral tone that I can wear under light-colored clothing, but that the inside lining is a floral print material.  The bra straps can be worn in three different ways, which is helpful as I never quite know what set-up will feel comfortable from one day to the next.

dark toffee

In addition to bras and briefs, Cake Lingerie also offers camisoles, robes, shorts, and pants that can be used through pregnancy and maternity months and well into the nursing stages.  I love that these pieces can be mixed and matched to work through all seasons, from the warm summer months when the shorts and camis are enough to cooler fall and winter months where a robe would come in handy.

2. Apple Crumble Robe

Mikarose for Maternity/Nursing Wear {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

When I found out that I was expecting our first son a little over five years ago, one of my very first thoughts (after “Holy cow, it finally worked after trying for one year!” and “Oh, my goodness, it has to come out of me…”) was that I would get to buy a new wardrobe!  I was so excited to find all these incredibly cute clothes that would highlight my growing baby bump and to have something new to wear everyday!

 logo

Although I did a pretty good job of frequenting a good number of stores and boutiques that specialized in maternity and nursing clothing, I was surprised to find that most of my clothes were from some of my favorite pre-pregnancy stores and could be worn comfortably throughout my entire pregnancy and even during post-partum and nursing without any alterations!  Tara featured Mikarose a couple of weeks ago here on Dandy Giveaway and More, and I’m excited to have the chance to highlight how the Mikarose dresses can be used in all stages of pregnancy and even through post-partum and nursing!

 Pregnancy:

    S1309TealProduct_MED

Makenna Maxi — So far, I just can’t get enough of these maxi dresses!  I love that you only have to put on the one piece of (incredibly comfortable!) clothing and a statement necklace, and VOILA!  You can run to do your grocery shopping on your way to meeting some friends for lunch and then to see your husband be promoted all in the same outfit, and all while you’re sporting a baby bump and feeling like you’re wearing pajamas!

9001MintProduct_MED

Bailey — A friend of mine who is due just one month earlier than I am bought this dress when she was just a few weeks along.  I saw her wearing it at church and immediately asked where she got it because I could see the potential to wear this dress comfortably through an entire pregnancy and again when not carrying a baby.  She’s due next month (with twin girls!) and wore it again last week; it didn’t look tight and wasn’t tugging anywhere, and she could move without immodestly showing halfway up her thigh or all the way down the front of her.

Nursing:

F1203_Valerie_Brown_3099

Valerie — I loved the thick ruching around the middle that can cover that inevitable post-baby pouch and the criss-cross design that makes nursing easier and more modest in public.  This half-sleeve length is my absolute favorite, as it’s versatile through most seasons/weather while also covering upper arms that may not have seen the gym in a couple of months.

2101_Avery_Pink_Med_0704

Avery — How classy is this dress??!  I love the wide belt (again, to draw attention away from the middle and to accentuate a waist) while the button top provides easy, discreet access for nursing moms.  And, while I’m not usually one to choose pink, this shade caught my eye from the beginning, and I imagine that it would work even with my blonde hair.

Transitional:

7020_Cinnamon

Serena — I love the flowy nature of this dress, which makes it a perfect transitional dress in my mind!  It can be worn pre-pregnancy without looking like a maternity dress, during pregnancy with lots of material to move and grow into, and after pregnancy for nursing and hiding changing bodies.

F1205_Rebecca_Red_0578

Rebecca — I chose this dress to review, and I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love it!  The gathered material in the middle makes it possible for me to still fit in it at 27 weeks pregnant with some room to grow, while also providing a way to cover my pouch after the baby is born.  The V-cross top makes it easier to nurse in the next few months while also accommodating the constant changing size of my bust.  My favorite part of this dress is the sleeves — there are cap sleeves sewn in underneath, and the detail fancies up the dress so I can wear it to the Marine Corps Ball with my husband in November!  I was also very pleased with the color, which is a deeper red than I was expecting and a much better color than a bright red would be on my very pale skin.

Enter below to win a $50 Gift Certificate to Mikarose!

Thyme Maternity Skin Care Line {Review}

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Pregnancy does such a number to my skin!  I had horrible pregnancy acne just a couple of months ago (as in, the absolute worst acne I’ve ever had in my life!), and I have some marks from my previous pregnancies that haven’t completely faded.

 main

Thyme Maternity is a clothing line for pregnancy, post-partum, and nursing, but they also feature a great skin care line to help with these stages as well!

stretch

Thyme Maternity Soothing Therapy Stretch Mark Cream helps restore skin’s elasticity because of some key ingredients that make this cream so effective.  Seaweed extract helps circulation and helps reduce the appearance of stretch marks, vitamin E conditions and nourishes the skin, reducing scar tissue, and avocado oil provides moisture to skin.  This one is a great cream to use at night because it’s thick and feels like it’s a barrier or cover protecting skin — I’m not a huge fan of having thick cream on my hands (or stomach, I guess!) during the day, so I haven’t tried it in the morning yet.

leg

Thyme Maternity Soothing Therapy Leg Gel relieves and soothes tired legs through the use of grape extract (stimulates circulation and keeps legs smooth), argan extract (tones and helps cells regenerate) and ivy extract (helps reduce swelling).  I LOVE THIS ONE!  I notice the most pain on my legs and hips after a long day of running with the boys, and this helps me relax so much more.

breast

The blend of natural ingredients in Thyme Maternity Soothing Therapy Breast Cream helps promote firmness of delicate skin in the bust area.  It’s enriched with natural shea butter for nourishing moisture, passionfruit oil for hydrating, conditioning,  and nourishing the skin, and argan kernel oil for cell regeneration.

gel

Thyme Maternity Soothing Therapy Restructuring Gel is a specially formulated post-partum treatment that promotes skin recovery on stomach, hips and thighs. Quillaja and kigelia extract aid in cellular reactivation, aloe vera helps heal the effects of stretching, and lemon, orange, and grapefruit essential oils help skin renew tone and elasticity.

 nipple

Thyme Maternity Soothing Therapy Nipple Ointment is a 100% USP pure lanolin ointment that soothes and repairs cracked skin. It protects against dryness and relieves the discomfort associated with breastfeeding. Make sure to pack it in your hospital bag! Non-toxic and safe for mom and baby.

Milan Maternity {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

I have to admit that my absolute favorite stage of pregnancy is RIGHT NOW — I’m 26 weeks along, meaning that I’m not too huge but actually look pregnant, my morning sickness is completely gone, and I have tons of energy.  **So sorry to those of you who are still throwing up around the clock or already have swollen ankles — I really lucked out this time!**

My favorite part of pregnancy, though, is having the baby bump.  I hate to think of it as an accessory, but I really feel like I look cute in just about anything I wear because I have a baby bump!  I’m more willing to try new styles because I figure that if I can’t pull it off, people will just think, “Oh, too bad — it’s hard to be pregnant and try to find clothes that fit you” and not “Yikes.  No sense of style on that one.”

  main

I discovered Milan Maternity about a month ago when I was looking for a few pieces that would work for all stages of pregnancy and maybe even for the postpartum bulge and nursing “trimester” (that lasts about a year…).  I immediately fell in love with the pieces from Milan Maternity because they’re cute and stylish, appropriate for a variety of seasons, transitional, and completely affordable!

“Pregnancy is a time to be celebrated and every woman deserves to have a great wardrobe during this special nine months!  However, most of us don’t have $80 to slap down for a single designer maternity top, and also don’t want to settle for frumpy, unflattering styles either.  Our mission is to provide designer style that flatters your new shape at prices you can be happy about.”

I’m not kidding when I say that I literally took hours to select an item to review!  I looked through everything, decided that I wanted it all, tried to pare down my list, went through my closet to see if I was missing a certain color/style, etc.  I am serious when I say that I could have gotten anything (or everything!) from Milan Maternity and been completely happy!  I decided on this top to use in the fall/winter time when I will be nursing:

Julietta

Julietta French Roast

I tried it on immediately and it fit so well, even on top of my growing belly!  The fabric is high-quality, and I’m sure it could last quite a while and could easily be used past maternity and nursing stages.  I especially loved that the bottom part of this shirt didn’t flare like other empire-waist maternity tops do; this certainly makes this top a “transitional” piece that doesn’t scream “MATERNITY!” when worn.

BeHereSoon.com Baby & Maternity Boutique {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

I’m one of those incredibly annoying types who loves being pregnant (until about Week 37 when I just start to get anxious), and I’ve been blessed to have fairly easy pregnancies without many complications or problems along the way.  Although there are times when I wish that pregnancy would fly by so I can hold my new bundle of joy, I really like the anticipation that comes with having so much time to prepare and get ready for the excitement of a new addition.

beheresoon-logo

 BeHereSoon.com is a great Baby & Maternity Boutique that celebrates babyhood through all stages, from pregnancy to labor/delivery to infants and even for siblings.  They have lots of fun products as well as some practical ones, and I especially love the personalization that gives a special touch for sweet gifts.

brother

It was just coincidental that this Personalized Little Brother Sibling Shirt would be a top pick for other customers, too — it immediately caught my eye since I’m currently expecting my third little boy!  I love the idea of announcing that the newest addition has older siblings to love, and there are also “Big Brother/Sister” and “Middle Brother/Sister” shirts to make for the best family picture.

shirt

 BeHereSoon.com also features clever shirts with sayings like this “Womb with a View” Maternity Shirt that announce to others that you have a bun in the oven.

bag

I was especially taken by this Maternity Labor Bag / Pregnancy Announcement Bag because I thought that it was the best idea!  You would want to have something fun to take to the hospital for this special day, but I have a hard time justifying purchases that aren’t multifunctional.  This bag is the perfect labor bag to take to the hospital and is also a fun pregnancy announcement that can be used in the months beforehand.

kit

This Starter Pregnancy Gift Set, though, is going to be absolutely necessary in the next few months – I’ve already started to itch on my stomach and back, and I know that the combination of heat, humidity, sand, salt water, chlorine, and pregnancy itself are just going to do me in.  This Starter Pregnancy Gift Set includes a starter pregnancy oil bottle that can be used during all phases of pregnancy to keep the skin moisturized and another bottle of body polishing best used during the second and third trimesters to cut down on the itchiness.

One Dandy reader can win this Starter Pregnancy Gift Set from BeHereSoon.com!  Enter below to win!
