Maternity Stitch Fix

Hey. Hi! Have you heard about Stitch Fix ? Have you seen the 1000 referral links everyone has been posting? Well, I've done it a few times- with success a couple and not the others [though i did still get my favorite warm infinity scarf ever that time, so i guess it still counts as a success].  Anyways, I decided to give the maternity stitch fix a go, to see if they could help in my search to find the best maternity leggings of all time.  Here's how it turned out--

my favorite outfit- Kut from the Kloth Black Ponte Leggings and Loveappella Kelly Raglan Top

hard to show the stitching details on the leggings... they have a seam down the thigh and across the knees. LOVE them.  Exactly what I asked for/was looking for.

Loveappella Keils Lace Detail Top-
 meh. it's nice and long and I'd probably wear it but it's not my favorite.

Street Level Anchorage Nylon Tote-
LOVE this.  So many pockets and should be easy to clean.


Loveappella Firenze Top-
This is nice and long and very comfy, but just kind of blah.  Its a solid navy long sleeve shirt.

In this fix I specifically asked for a pair of thick black leggings, and a bag.  I absolutely love both of those things I got this time!  Now comes the hard decision making part...I really like the burgundy tunic [the first pic] and not really the other two, though I'd probably wear them if I kept them. So, with the 25% discount and styling fee applied, it comes out to be about $36 more to just buy all five.  This is where they get you!  I usually like to think about it for a day and then make my decision, but if you've got any opinions or suggestions, send them my way before Friday! :)

It's a...


Just as I suspected! Holy cow I'm going to be a girl mom!

How far along? 20 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Definitely up 10. Can I take this question out now? Bleh. Will find out tomorrow.  
Maternity clothes? Mostly pants/shorts [except for one magical pair of jean shorts from Loft that I bought before going on vacation in March thinking it was a terrible idea and I wouldn't be able to wear them again until NEXT summer, but, lo and behold, they still fit me at 20 weeks pregnant]
Stretch marks? not yet
Sleep: better, now that we're not all sick.  
Best moment this week: Finding out my intuition was right and we're having a baby girl!
Miss Anything? I very much want a cold glass of white wine.  So what if I have my husband pour himself a glass so that I can sneak a sip?! 
Movement: Yes! I can feel and see this kid go all the way over to the right side of my uterus so that I have a big lump there.  Also that's a little uncomfortable.
Food cravings:  Still salty stuff [Target popcorn, chips & salsa are my current favorites] and also GIVE ME EVERYTHING PUMPKIN. I did a little dance when I saw the pumpkin Noosa yogurt out! 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really anymore, thank goodness.  
Have you started to show yet: YES, though in some shirts I just look a bit plump.  The tighter the better these days.  
Gender prediction: I was right! Sweet baby girl in there.  
Labor Signs: Nope
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off?  On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Mooooooody.  Sorry ya'll.
Looking forward to: Teeny tiny baby GIRL clothes and getting the nursery cleaned up and organized! Target baby section, sorry. Bye.
