outfit post // Beach Ball

Hat: Collection Eighteen // Sunnies: Rayban // Swimsuit: Merona
I can't believe I'm posting these pics, but pregnancy is supposed to be a beautiful thing right, lol? I was nervous someone might mistake me for a beach ball while I was over in Naples. 

Shopping for a swimsuit to accommodate Bump 2.0 was such a challenge. I was over the whole shopping experience and was prepared to give up the beach experience all together. Apparently there is a very limited selection of affordable maternity swimwear and what is affordable is grossly unflattering. Every suit I tried on frustrated me more and more. I think I may have found my calling in life. In my book $50 and above is not "affordable" for a swimsuit that you're not going to wear that much - at least for my budget. Just when I gave up and my family was cashing out at Target, I spotted this little number in the regular section. I didn't have time to try it on since they were paying already, so I grabbed a size XL and hoped for the best. Luckily it fit once I tried it on at home and I actually have some room to grow.

I love the beach! Playing around in the water with my family was so much fun! It also made my back feel so much better. This kid is growing and doing a number on me, lol. By the way, I'm currently in my 17th week of this pregnancy and am starting to feel some quickening. I didn't feel it this early with Jolie, this baby seems to already be more active. It's almost time to confirm 2.0's gender - keep voting - Boy seems to be winning by a landslide!!!

Gosh, and now you're shaming me for not having gone to the beach in weeks. I'm going to regret my ambivalence in a few months!
