Maternity Style with A Beautiful RAWR

It’s not often that I come across a brand like A Beautiful RAWR that has incredible quality, fashionable pieces, AND an amazing message. “RAWR” stands for Real Amazing Women Representing. Designer and owner Linh says, “We are the mothers, daughters, wives, and sisters of our time.  We represent love, strength, beauty, courage, faith, and grit.” Every single tee in her shop has a message that I can relate to as a mother and woman. I love that!

When I received my “Strong As A Mother” tee, it felt like Christmas. These packages are created with love and care and are simply beautiful. You can tell time and effort was put in to make sure the customer feels appreciated and special. And as an added bonus, the woman behind A Beautiful Rawr, Linh, is such a sweet, kind and beautiful soul.

Bump Watch

How far along? 27 weeks.

Baby is the size of? A head of cauliflower.

Belly button in or out? Kinda deformed, like it wants to be out but hasn’t quite made it there.

Movement? Non-stop, day and night.

Showing? I feel HUGE. And still have a while left to go!

Food cravings? Oh gosh, do not tell my doctor. I’m usually really good when it comes to balance and eating healthy. The past few weeks I’ve indulged in all my cravings: ice cream and pop tarts and donuts and more ice cream. It’s bad.

Symptoms? Back and neck pain. Swollen feet and ankles. Exhaustion. Braxton hicks. It’s feeling more and more like the third trimester!

Doctor update: My blood pressure is really low, so we will be keeping an eye on that. I did my glucose testing this morning, which made me really sick! But I’m glad to have it over with. Everything else looks perfect!! And after losing 16 pounds the first and second trimester, I’ve gained 9 back!
