Alas, I'm busting up out of that dreadful first trimester about as much as my baby bump is busting up out of my non-maternity clothes! They weren't kidding when they said your second baby shows much faster than your first... Whoever "they" are. "They" know their stuff!
I have two pairs of maternity shorts from my pregnancy days with Henry that I pulled out last week, but am not quite bumpalicious enough for maternity shirts. I needed some more "small bump" options.
On a whim I ventured out to Old Navy, which I honestly haven't been in since I was in Jr. High school, and found their maternity section. Not the biggest selection, but I was able to find another pair of shorts and this sundress that wasn't too "loud" and attention-grabbing. Their prices are fantastic and I even picked up some items for Henry!

The dress is cotton and super comfy. The straps are adjustable and there's flattering rouching in the front for growing baby bumps. I paired it with a neon yellow accent color in my sandals and necklace to be colorful for the new summer season! It could also easily have a neutral cardigan and understated accessories as we transition to
And per usual, you know I love me a good stripe!
If you're looking for affordable maternity options, I'd definitely check out Old Navy. Their online selection is much better than the store I was in. Buyer beware: their sizing is MASSIVE. I bought size XS, and am still swimming in it. Be sure to size down to accommodate their extremely inflated sizes!
