Bump Update: 18 Weeks

I figured it was time for another bump update. The last time I did one was a month ago when I announced my pregnancy!

{Blazer: Zara (old), Sweater: Gap (old), Skirt: Forever 21 (old), Booties: BCBG (old), Necklace: Rire Boutique}

My bump is now actually starting to show if I wear more fitted tops, which I'm pretty excited about. I am almost halfway through this pregnancy. On one hand, it seems like time has flew and every once in awhile I feel a slight twinge of panic about all the things we have still yet to do, which is... everything. And on the other hand, I feel like I've been pregnant for a year now and can't believe I am only halfway. I hear the second half definitely flies by quicker than the first, plus with the holidays coming up I know it will go by fast!

Food that I miss the most: Sushi. Man do I miss eating sushi. And it just so happens it's about the only thing I crave. Figures right?

Drink that I miss the most: Coffee. I miss it so much that even just smelling coffee makes me happy.

Clothing that I miss the most: Not much so far besides all those cute colored jeans that I wore last fall and can no longer fit into. 

None of these bother me too much because I'm just so happy to have this little bundle of joy and wouldn't trade it for all the sushi, coffee, or skinny jeans in the world!

I don't know if you care or would but just letting you know that there is tons of research now that says one cup of coffee a day is completely fine..I did with my second, and she's totally normal...lol!
Hope you continue to feel good!

Fabulous look. This is one of my favorites on you.

XO, Gina

Elsha said...

You are the most beautiful woman :) I love that your little bump is starting to show and i can't believe you are already half way through!! Madness!

Lauren {Fizz and Frosting} said...

Such a sweet little baby bump! You are looking great! Love this skirt too. :)

Schnelle said...

Oh m goodness! I'm so behind on reading that I totally missed your announcement! Congrats- that's SO exciting!!! Love that sweater btw.

Alyssa said...

Eek! How cute are you?! And no sushi sounds like straight up torture. Can't say I'm looking forward to that!

SydneysFashionDiary.com said...

The pregnancy will be over before you know it. Love your skirt. Too bad it's not current. Take care =)

Kim Alston said...

Your bundle of joy will be here before you know it Yi-Chia! Enjoy every moment.

Adam said...

I never realized sushi was bad for pregnancy.

Jane said...

lovely bump. And wow. already halfway though. have a great second half!

Sam said...

You look so adorable, and god to know these past 18 weeks are going well. Can you not have decaf coffee maybe? I don't know what I would do without coffee. Love your pastel pink blazer, the striped top is so excellently paired with it.

Katie said...

Emmylou said...

You look great, Yi-chia! (((hugs))) Enjoy this time while you can sleep...heeheee...
And I'll let you on a little secret...I drank a small cup of coffee once a day with the my three pregnancies. I think I would've literally died if I couldn't drink that, so the doctor told me it was ok on my case:D

Frannie Pantz said...

Trust me, it will go by so, so, so fast and so will your baby! I can't believe my first baby is about to be a teenager next month! Or that my second baby just lost his two front teeth! Or that my baby baby just got her ears pierced and can clean them herself. :-( Enjoy it all you can! You look adorable!

Simply Evani said...

My biggest fear about pregnancy (well my biggest silly fear) is the withdrawals I'll have from sushi. It's terrifying. Haha

Caitie Schlisserman said...

OMG! I missed that post of you announcing your pregnancy.... congrats!!! You are going to be the cutest preggers lady!

sip-n-wear said...

Ah... The craving for sushi and coffee while prego... I totally can relate... You can drink coffee still and i heard people eat sushi while prego in japan...? I was careful and didnt do that, but the cravings are so painful sometimes... You look super cute by the way! Do you know the gender yet?

Lindy Maddox said...

You are so adorable!! Love this look and your little belly :)

Carly said...

Oh man, I miss sushi like nobodies business!!! I've already found the closest sushi place to the hospital!!!

You look great!

you win the award for the best style/look during pregnancy! looking so pretty as always!


Alicia Mackin said...

Oh yes it will be worth it in the end. Soon you are going to have to switch to maternity clothes. Or just get lots of leggings and long slouchy sweaters and tops.

Darcy said...

You look so cute! I can't believe you're already half way. I feel like I just read that you were pregnant! And I totally agree... I think coffee would be the hardest thing to do without. I just love the whole ritual of coffee in the morning!

Time does fly! With the upcoming holiday season, it'll pass even quicker. :-) I like the striped and polka dot sweater. Nice shade of green.


Susannah said...

I'm so glad your pregnancy is going to see. Your little belly is adorable!

Ricademus said...

I especially like outfits with several "old" items in them. I imagine clothes being like the toys in Toy Story and that it's sad for them when we don't wear them. :)

If the first commentor meant you will be the sweetest mom ever, I tend to agree with that...you'll be a great mom--and you're right, time will go by fast until the little bundle of joy arrives. But you've got plenty of time to get everything done. It feels like it's more than it actually turns out to be after you're done.

Aww your little bump is adorable. You look super happy. The first and second trimester seemed to fly by for me and the third went excruciatingly slow. (It was of course, the most uncomfortable time in my pregnancy...figures, right?) Anyway congrats on your pregnancy!!

xo, Sarah

Hustla, baby.

lisacng @ expandng.com said...

You are glowing! Almost halfway through -- TIME FLIES! And with the holidays coming, it'll go even faster. Glad you are enjoying it and not missing (too much) the food and drink. You can have them soon enough :D!

Makaila said...

Ooooooh, sooo sweet! And you are just ADORABLE! Not being able to eat Sushi.. I so get that. It's a craving that isn't satisfied by anything else. But having to abstain- yes. Worth it. ;)

Looking great on this outfit. Congrats Maylee :)

Jen ♥ said...

You are the cutest! 18 weeks was when my stomach popped too - I woke up one morning & bam! There it was! Now there's no mistaking it no matter what I wear (I'm 28 weeks now for comparison). And I know EXACTLY how you feel - January still feels like it's forever away but I feel like I've been pregnant my whole life! And don't worry...we still don't have a single baby item yet. ;-)

Also, my Dr said it's OK to have 1 cup of coffee a day, especially if you were a coffee drinker before. It's sort of like exercising - if you were doing it before, it's ok to continue what you were doing, just not too smart to start anything new. I may get slammed for this because many people think it's not OK at all. But hey, some people drink wine during their pregnancies too so..I say to each her own! Anyway, if you're really craving it go for decaf!

You look awesome girl - love this outfit! Is it all non-maternity stuff?


How bout vegetarian maki? :)

I got my sushi fix by eating the cooked rolls....I know it's not the same, but helped. And I am pretty sure it's okay to have one cup of coffee a day...my doctor said I could have one can of caffeine a day. And it makes me so happy to see that little bump of love!! :)

That sweater is gorgeous incorporating both dots & stripes. A beautiful shade of Green too. You look colorful and pretty.

I, too, missed sushi while pregnant but it was sooo worth it. And I was told 1-3 cups of coffee a week is OK. You can always try decaf. =) Your bump looks adorable by the way.

Elsha said...

Oh ya know, just stalking through all your posts, finding the ones I haven't seen yet...or may I have? Regardless, you look adorable here and I want those boots in my closet asap!
