half way

Tuesday, July 5

 *brain freeze*
Shoes: Nordstrom, Leggings: Target: Top: Thrifted, Belt: Husbands, Hat: Target, Sunnies: Cassettes
We went for a taco salad and frozen yogurt run last night. My cousins introduced me to this new fro-yo place over the weekend ... where they have raspberries, blackberries, coconut and almond slices for toppings.
Baby was delighted. 
Just about as much as he's been delighted with these men's shirts and leggings lately. Lots of room for kicking.

I am exactly half-way along in this thing and have been amazed at what my body can do. The stretching, the leaking. It's all fabulous. I just hit my 10 lb gain mark {hooray!}, baby boy is the size of a banana and ...
still only weighs less than a pound. Let's break that down shall we:

- I'm gonna say 3 lbs went straight to my tots. {we're being optimistic here, but I mean their highnesses need some credit}
- 1 lb of baby
- 2 lbs of placenta-ness and fluids
- 0 lbs to my butt. That was supposed to be a bonus to pregnancy yo!
- 1 lb straight to 4th of July ankle swellage. 
- 3 lbs of frozen yogurt

Amen pregnancy.

Taco salad! Now I want taco salad.

Sorry about the brain freeze. I use putting my finger on the roof of my mouth trick it makes it go away in about half the time.

marissa at the boot said...

haha! but you look GREAT sydney! and don't worry, the tots and your butt will get bigger in no time. :)

carlotta said...

your taco salad looks delicious. and your outfit is perfection. I mean, stripes AND a fedora? amazing. also. you have the cutest baby bump ever. did that sound creepy? sorry. it wasn't supposed to. ;)

Jessica said...

Hah! Sydney, your weight-gain breakdown is to die for. I laughed so hard that iced tea may have just come out of my nose . . . but you didn't hear that. Best wishes to you, baby Poulton, and their highnesses ;-)

if pregnancy means eating taco salads, frozen yogurt and gaining 3 lbs of boobs, then sign me up.

Miss Emily K. said...

that dinner sounds yummy!

Joel and Brittany said...

I bro told me about the new fro-yo place. Why is Rexburg cool now? Oh and congrats on the place in DC... very exciting!

P.S.- you have to be the cutest prego lady ever! I cannot even walk around in leggings now & I don't have a baby in my belly & swelling all over (well the swelling I have, but it's not from a baby growth). :)

Amanda said...

You are the cutest pregnant lady out there!! And that fro yo looks magical!

lauraa said...

Man, you always crack me up. I really hope I don't get an extra 3lb on my boobs when I'm pregnant. The ladies do not need that! The butt however, I could cope with. Somehow I'm sure that's not gonna happen!
Enjoy the yogurt. Yum

Rebecca said...

I recognize Cafe Rio salad when I see one! That's all it takes to induce a craving. So good! And I'm loving the men's-shirt-leggings outfits. You look fabulous!

You look stunning, no matter how many lbs you gained. Frozen yogurt, I am dreaming of one right now!

Teresa said...

...the butt gain is a little gift that comes AFTER when you're sitting on it eating because you're so tired from walking the floor all night with the bebe you can't remember why you're eating.

Bee said...

alas you're not supposed to eat soft serve ice cream or frozen yogurt while pregnant because you can get listeria.

The Wilders said...

You look fantastic...and are forever cracking me up with your comments!

Belly B said...

Haha but you still look fabulous!!! :D You're making me crave for yogurt!

Hooked on Shoes said...

You look gorgeous pregnant! I say take advantage of the froyo (and everything else) and gain another 20 lbs!! (and keep dressing fabulously, of course ;p)

Bridget said...

at this point, i'm 33 lbs. what i was when i started and i think at least 20 of that is in my boobs. no joke.

alright, maybe a joke, but 5 and 5, i'm giving them.

and they've been leaking since about 19 weeks. hurrah for us!

ty said...

Hahahha, I thought I was the only person in the world who called my girls "tots." Loves it.

Karri said...

Mn. That fro yo looks amazing.
I have to spill. I am small framed. My girls were pert and small pre-pregnancy. I was in awe of how large they got. Let's just say they started at A and went to an E when the milk came in. No lie. I am still in awe of that. Very pornstar-esque.

Rachael said...

Ahaha! I love the breakdown. You're so witty.

mom24orsinis said...

awww...everyone is so sweet and kind to you...but, only 10 lbs...half way through???? Girl, I'm going to just put it out there... unfiltered honesty: UNfair, just TOTALLY unfair. May have to stop reading your blog because of the green monster of jealousy that came over me...I've had 4 kids...never looked as cute and adorable as you...always had gained more than 10 lbs by this point and it was always in my trunk...you're killin' me!!

LOL...you know I'm teasing... :) It's true, you do look fanatastic, and I LOVED pregnancy as much you seem to...so super happy for your pregnancy beauty :) Keep enjoying and thank you for sharing it with us!!!

SAMANTHA said...
