Rain Room at 37 Weeks Pregnant

If you're in Los Angeles, I would highly recommend taking time to check out the Rain Room exhibit at the LA County Museum of Art.   Tickets need to be purchased in advance and are a bit hard to obtain, but I thought it was worth the effort!  I wish I had taken some more time to set my camera settings a bit better, but oh well.  Iphone shots also come out decently!  I found that the best photos were taken with the subjects being backlit by the only light in the room.  Also, note that if you are a little person (i.e. my two year old daughter), the sensors aren't so great and you WILL get wet.  This also happens if you crouch down to take a photo, as I learned personally.  All in all it was a fun afternoon!

Maternity Dress: At Both 29 and 34 Weeks Pregnant

I have been attempting to wear my pre-pregnancy clothes as much as possible during this pregnancy, but there are some scenarios that just don't work.  Work pants and jeans fall into that category as I haven't been able to zip up my pants since the end of my first trimester (I blame it on this being my second pregnancy).  Thank goodness for those stretchy panels!  I can still pull off non-maternity empire-waisted dresses with looser bottoms, but if I want to wear a dress that is fitted in the third trimester, I just suck it up and buy maternity.  Thank goodness for Asos and their affordable options.  I mean, $18??  Such a steal!  The ruching is quite forgiving for the growing belly, as evidenced by the fact that I can wear this dress easily at 29 weeks and 34 weeks pregnant.  The first set of photos are from a wedding I attended at 29 weeks pregnant, and the second set are from a date night with Dr. S at 34 weeks pregnant.

Date night at Tar and Roses at 34 weeks!
