PinkBlush Maternity Review

Friday, July 14, 2017

When we finally got pregnant, I knew I didn't want to spend a fortune on maternity clothes. I also knew I wanted to find pieces I could wear postpartum. I found a few reviews for PinkBlush Maternity online and I have placed 3 orders over the last few months.

The first two things I purchased were this basic black maxi and hooded knit top. I knew I'd get a ton of wear out of the maxi and I could wear it after baby as well. The black maxi is WAY too long for me so I still need to get it hemmed. I also found the fabric a little thin, but overall a nice dress. The hooded knit top is great. The top is thin so I can wear it on a cooler summer evening and I think I'll get a lot of wear out of the top in the fall and winter.

The second order I placed included this beautiful blue scalloped top. I love that the top can be dressed up with white jeans for work or look casual with shorts. The top is a little longer so I am hoping I can wear it with leggings and a sweater in the fall. I also purchased this beautiful wrap dress. This dress is absolute perfection and the perfect length! I plan on wearing this to a wedding in August and on our cruise. The dress is very flattering on the bump and will be wonderful for nursing once baby is here. If I had enough reasons to dress up, I'd buy this dress in every color!

The third order included some specific pieces for our upcoming cruise next month. The first item, not for the cruise, is one of their delivery robes. Although I love the print, it seems a little small - I even sized up! We will have to see in about 20 weeks how this fits. Second, I bought this dress for the cruise and baby shower coming up. This dress fits perfectly and is so easy to wear. I also purchased their draped nursing top. While I think this will work well for nursing and will work at the moment with the bump, I don't see this fitting for long. I went with my usual size but the top isn't as stretchy under the bust as I would like. Lastly, I grabbed this cute tank off of the sale section. The tank is perfect for on the boat and cruise thrown over a bathing suit. I can pair it with shorts. I also think I can get away with wearing the tank with leggings and a long sweater in the fall! 

To sum up my thoughts on PinkBlush Maternity:
- Everything I purchased is very versatile and I see myself wearing for the next 5 months as well as once baby boy is here.
- The quality of their clothes is hit or miss, some pieces are amazing quality and some are just okay. Luckily, with the amount of sales they run, everything is priced appropriately.

PinkBlush also carries a Maternity Plus line, Women's line, and Women's Plus line! Check them out!


Baby Harrison Update!

Monday, June 26, 2017

  • How Far Along - 17 weeks and 2 days. Baby Harrison is the size of a pomegranate, about 5 inches long!
  • Symptoms – Unfortunately I have still been getting sick about 2-3 times a week. I also have had severe headaches at night, but nothing some peppermint oil on the forehead can't fix!
  • Physical Changes – Baby Harrison has been growing like crazy and so has my belly. Most days I have the cutest little bump!
  • Weight Gain - My weight loss stopped once I had lost 18 lbs total. I haven't really gained any since so we are still -18 lbs!
  • Mood – I have to say I've been in a pretty good mood but I have noticed I can get annoyed quickly, I'm blaming that on the lack of sleep.
  • Sleep – I. Am. So. Tired. I have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep.
  • Food Cravings – If you know me, you would know I hate watermelon. But last night all I wanted was a piece of watermelon - weird. Otherwise I just want sweets and fruit!
  • Food Aversions – I'm still not a fan of bacon. I also can't stand the smell of seafood.
  • Missing – Nothing really.
  • Maternity Clothes - I don't know why everyone doesn't wear maternity pants. My wardrobe is limited but I've been wearing a lot of non-maternity dresses.
  • Looking Forward To - Decorating the nursery! We are working on picking out a paint color this week.
  • This Week's Happenings – Fathers Day weekend we had a gender reveal party at my parents and we are so excited to announce that Baby Harrison is a BOY! I knew it would be a boy, but had doubts because everyone in our family always has girls first. We are so excited to add a sweet little boy to the family. Look out for posts regarding his name and details from our gender reveal! I also felt Baby Harrison move for the first time on my birthday! It was the best present I could ever have received. 
Lots of love,
Momma Harrison

Pregnancy Update: Week 5-11

Thursday, May 18, 2017

I thought I'd go ahead and give everyone a little update on how Baby Harrison has been doing the last few weeks!
  • How Far Along - 11 weeks and 5 day! Baby Harrison is about 5 cm or the size of a brussel sprout, HOW CUTE.
  • Symptoms – From week 4-week 11, I suffered from severe nausea and actually lost weight. At 10 weeks and 5 days, my doctor let me stop my progesterone shots and since then I have felt wonderful (except for a small Mother's Day car puking incident!) Besides nausea, I have been very tired. 
  • Physical Changes – I think my boobs have grown like a million sizes over the past few weeks.
  • Weight Gain – None yet, I actually lost 16 lbs!
  • Mood – I am so excited for all things to come but I can still cry at the drop of a hat.
  • Sleep – I’m sleeping super well…the problem is getting to sleep!
  • Food Cravings – As of right now, none. I just like eating plain foods: mac and cheese, plain pasta with butter, cheese and crackers, and bagels with cream cheese. Maybe there is a cheese theme...
  • Food Aversions – I can't stand the smell or sight of bacon, it is sad - I know!
  • Missing – Nothing really.
  • Maternity Clothes - I have been wearing maternity yoga pants for a few weeks now, otherwise everything else still fits. I do get a belly ache when I wear jeans for too long.
  • Looking Forward To – Finding out the gender in a few weeks.
  • This Week's Happenings – We had our last ultrasound with our fertility clinic this week, which was exciting and sad. We had an ultrasound 7 weeks in a row so it will be very weird to not have one for a few weeks. The baby is growing and moving around perfectly! We are so grateful to everyone at Reproductive Associates of Delaware that helped make our dream of being parents come true! I will miss seeing everyone every week. We also picked out nursery furniture this week, I wanted the furniture to be gender neutral so we decided now. 
11 week 5 day ultrasound

Lots of love,
