Date Night Maternity Style

When I first got pregnant, I was determined not to become….matronly. I refused to succumb to maternity style, wouldn’t step foot in a Motherhood store, and absolutely would not be caught dead in a jean shirt with a tie above the belly, or ::shudders:: a belly band.

Our First Post-Baby Date Night

Jessie Hale (@hellomyloveblog) from the hello-my-love blog

Like a true Leo, I usually don’t mind a big celebration for my birthday, but this year I really didn’t expect much considering I had a 5 week old newborn – not even a good nights’ sleep! But Chris insisted we do something, so we hired a babysitter, crossed our fingers, and enjoyed our first post-baby date night in celebration of the big 3-4.

With so many beautiful options of maternity dresses it was hard to narrow down my top picks. Here’s my favorite four and why they would be perfect for your upcoming gender reveal!

#1: White Garden 3/4 Sleeve Wrap Maternity/Nursing Maxi Dress

Ok, I am loving this maxi for so many reasons. I love the even amount of both blue and pink within the floral accent which is perfect whether it ends up being a boy or girl. The wrap detailing will give any body shape a flattering fit and it’s perfect for transitioning once baby is here making it the perfect nursing dress!

#2: Basic White Chiffon Maternity Dress

What I like about this dress is how simple it is. Perfect for warmer climates you will stay cool and comfy and look fabulous. With a tie detail it allows you to adjust the fit to make it more form fitting or flowy. Add a colored sash around the waste to make this a stunning option for your reveal. It can also be worn after baby too!

#3: Mint Green Floral Chiffon Maternity Dress

Am I Having A Boy Or Girl? Fun Ways To Tell!

Screenshot (355)

Wondering if your little bundle of joy will be a boy or girl? Here are some fun and wacky old wives’ tales said to be able to predict the sex of your baby!

  1. According to an old wives’ tale your baby’s heart rate can be used to predict the gender. Apparently, girls have faster heartbeats than boys. Above 140 ppm means you’re having a girl, and lower than 140 bpm means it’s a boy.
  2. Rumor has it that if you are carrying your baby high, it’s a girl. Carrying low? Stock up on blue.
  3. Legends say that if you are having a little girl, she’ll steal your beauty. So, if you’ve got acne and other not-so-pretty skin blemishes, you’ve got a little princess coming your way.
  4. Some say craving sweets indicates a baby girl is on the way, if salty and sour is on your crave list start breaking out the blue!
  5. Here is one of the most if not the most well-known wives ‘tales for gender predicting! Take your wedding ring and tie it to a string. Hang it over your belly. If it swings in a circle, a little guy’s in your future. If it goes back and forth, you’ve got a girl. (Caught in the act, I totally tried this! According to this, we’re expecting a baby girl! Stay tuned to find out!)
  6. They say if you have dreams that you are having a boy, you will have a girl. If you dream about having a girl, it will be a boy. Dreams show the opposite of what you are having. (Not sure how accurate this could be, with my son, I was constantly dreaming of giving birth to a boy and sure enough it was a boy. This pregnancy I have been waiting for a dream about what we’ll have and the other night I finally had a dream of a baby girl. I think when you dream of gender it’s your intuition telling you. We’ll see!)
  7. Show me your hands! When a pregnant woman is asked to show her hands, it’s a boy if she keeps her palms down and a girl if she shows her palms up.
  8. It is said that when you can only think of specific names for a boy or a girl, you will have that particularly baby.
  9. Ok, this one has got to be my favorite, if the dad-to-be gains weight while you are pregnant, it’s a girl. If he doesn’t gain weight, you’re having a boy. (My husband recently began to work out again, which mean someone feels they have been putting on the pounds besides myself lol!)

We hope these wives’ tales provided a little insight but most of all fun! Share your prediction stories with us at media@pinkblushmaternity.com! And don’t forget, no matter the occasion, our maternity clothes deliver style for the mommy-to-be. Dress up your bump with PinkBlushMaternity.com!
