I have a feeling 2019 is going to fly by as fast as 2018 did because it’s already time for January favorites! Now that the cat (or baby) is out of the bag and I’m publicly talking about my pregnancy, it should be no surprise that a lot of my favorites this month are pregnancy related. So let’s get into it!
MeUndies Lounge Pants
Mike has had a pair of these for over a year and I finally decided to ask for a pair for Christmas. They are so incredibly comfortable and I love wearing them on the weekends (since I nap after lunch and then I don’t need to change back into regular clothes!).
You had to know the baby was going to be on my January favorites! Not only did we get to hear baby’s heartbeat for the first (and second) time in January but we had our first ultrasound. They don’t look much like a baby so far (especially since their body has to catch up to their giant head at 11 weeks) but I’m sure at our next ultrasound at 20 weeks they will look more baby-like.
I don’t have much of a bump yet (I’m convinced it’s more bloat than bump still) but I’ve been using a C-shaped pregnancy pillow for the last couple of weeks and it’s made sleeping so much more comfortable. My back and hips were starting to get really sore after sleeping and instead of stealing all the pillows to prop me up, this pillow does it so much more easily. Plus Vinnie is in love with cuddling in it. I have a feeling Vinnie will think it’s own pillow when I’m gone on a work trip at the end of April.
Hot Ginger Lemonade Nuun
We’ve gotten into a cold snap in St. Paul (and we have snow on the snow, just barely enough to cover the grass but it’s still snow). We’ve already had several days of sub-zero feels like temperature and more are coming up. So I’ve been so thankful that I ordered some more Nuun and included a couple tubes of Ginger Lemonade! It’s my favorite flavor to drop into hot water when I come in from a walk with Vinnie and helps me get in some extra water during the day (without making myself even colder).
