What I wore Sunday + 22 weeks

Sunday, January 12, 2014

22 weeks! There's no hiding it now; two people asked me about the baby this week which is exciting and a relief at the same time (no more wondering if people can tell or not). It's kind of interesting being pregnant as a fourth year med student. People seem to have varying thoughts, but I do feel like there's an attitude that pregnant physicians-in-training aren't quite equivalent to non-pregnant ones. Maybe it's just me (too much watching Grey's Anatomy aka the Christina/Meredith feud?) or maybe it's the fact that I am 50% more exhausted than normal at the hospital...

The most exciting moment of the weekend (and one of the most exciting of the pregnancy so far) was Stephen feeling the baby kick! It's so nice to be able to share it with him instead of only feeling him move myself. And the baby wriggling around along with my growing bump makes everything that much more real...

I was doing a mixture of elliptical, Zumba. and this video before I got sick, and I definitely feel like I need to get back to exercising (I got the ok from the doctor on Thursday). I was planning on going to Zumba today, but then I remembered that a trip to Target yesterday completely exhausted me so an hour-long Zumba class was probably not smart. I'm hoping to sign up for a prenatal yoga class next week, and also considering this prenatal pilates video (it has mostly good reviews on Amazon and is divided into 10 minute segments, definitely a plus). Suggestions are welcome...

Grey cardi: Banana Republic outlet (old)
Lace top: A Pea in a Pod (recent but I can't find it online anymore?)
Pants: J. Crew
Shoes: Madewell skimmers (old)

On to what I wore Sunday: this lace top is probably my favorite maternity purchase so far (I've worn it three times this last week). I cleaned out my closet today, banishing the majority of my pre-pregnancy wardrobe to the basement (almost all of my shirts are either too tight in the chest area or too short at this point). It was a nice relaxing weekend overall; Stephen and I went out to dinner Friday night, watched The Great Gatsby, and did a few things around the house. We also made a little trip to the baby section while we were at Target just for fun :) We're headed to my last couple of residency interviews on Tuesday (I'll be breathing a sigh of relief when it's all over).

Happy Sunday!


  1. LOVE that top! You look so cute! I have that Pilates video and it's one of my favorites, just fyi :)

  2. I love the whole outfit, but especially that lacy top! That, I love! I always try to do a lot of walking during pregnancies and I do light weight training and toned down squatting. I really want to get a Pregnancy Pilates video though if we are blessed with another. Glad to see one that has great reviews on line and already a thumbs up from Britt ^ above.

  3. That lace top is so pretty! You look great!

  4. I love that lace top! You're looking great, Erika.

  5. So beautiful. It has been so long since I visited your blog. I didn't know you were expecting. Congratulations!!!! Love the entire look.


  6. Very pretty!!!!!!! It's nice when you are definitely showing and then people aren't hesitant to ask whether or not you are pregnant.



  7. Congratulations! I haven't been around the blog world in a while, so I missed this but happy to hear :)

  8. The top is so cute. And it must have been so exciting when he felt the baby kick. Hope you have a great day.

  9. You look so cute! And I used that same pilates DVD with Callan and loved it! I loved being able to "finish" a workout even if 10 minutes was all I could handle. I think it really helped my back and just general feeling of being stretched out.
