I’m not sure how this bump is supposed to get any bigger…this must be one big baby boy because my bump is way bigger here than my bump was the day I delivered Isla (and I’m still a month away from my due date!). A stretchy dress is about all I feel like wearing these days.

    Obsessing over your hat! Such and cute and perfect size <3

  2. I’ve heard that boys are bigger in the belly. How exciting! A month will fly by. And you have been dressing your bump very well.

    Do you have any problems with fabrics rubbing off on your white Celine? I went back and forth on getting this one last week but was so nervous about color transfer.

  8. Madeleine says:

    Aww don’t worry, you still look amazing! You rock your stretchy dresses!

    Dear Mademoiselle Rachel, you have got to be one of the few luckiest prego lady that ONLY gains where the bump is supposed to gained . . . And still look so chic, thin, healthy and beautiful all around. Seriously beautiful and very lucky! :)

    Rachel you look amazing with your bump. I have a size question. I’m just curious, because I am pregnant, was this a maternity dress or not? I know the link you left is not. I’ve been getting so many tips on clothes to buy as my bump grows from you. So I’m just curious what size did you order if this is not maternity. Did you order a size up ? Thanks for all of the ideas to stay stylish while pregnant. Also do you have any good maternity leggings that are your favorite. So many I try have been see through. Thanks!

  11. Lucy says:

    Wow, you’re just glowing! You must be so excited to finally meet your baby boy! That dress looks seriously amazing on you as well!

  12. As big as your bump may be, you are still looking so happy and absolutely adorable. x

    Heheh, you’re so cute! Yes, boys always weigh more and are also “showing” on the bump differently than girls. You’re looking gorgeous in this outfit. :)

  14. You look amazing!! That dress is just perfect and I love it paired with that half tee!!

    Love your bump so nice!

  17. Amber says:

    You look amazing- such an inspiration! I am 30 weeks with my second, who is a girl, my first is a boy ( now 2 yo), and I am already the same size bump/ weight gain I was at with my boy when he was delivered- so I don’t think it’s boy vs girl for me, just second pregnancy… the body is ready to stretch and allows more room for the baby to grow this time around. Best wishes to you and your gorgeous fam.

  18. Jill says:

    Rachel you look so stylish and the bump is the perfect accessory!! Hope the last month goes quickly for you!

  19. You look STUNNING! I love this body-fitting dress on you to show off that bump! It looks so easy!

    You look amazing, Rachel!! Hang in there, your sweet baby boy will be here soon!! (^_^)


  22. Annette says:

    You’re stunning! Beautiful outfit!

  23. Kate says:

    You still look incredible. I gained 60 lbs with my little nugget and had severe edema. Nothing fit me by the end. (Truly, no dress had enough stretch to fit over my fatness!) I’ve lost 50 lbs so far and have 10 more to go, so I’m feeling pretty good, but seeing photos of you makes me regret everything I ate during my pregnancy! Enjoy the last month, especially if you’re able to sleep :)

  24. Polly says:

    You have the cutest bump! I love your hat!


  25. Marisa M says:

  28. Hannah says:

    Such a cute black and white look! I really love those sandals! And your little belly button popping out is the cutest thing ever!

  29. Lisa says:

    I had a petite girl first and 20 months later, my son came. He was so long! My hubby is 6’6″, so I shouldn’t have been surprised, but there was such a difference in how big my belly got. Still looking gorgeous!

  30. Saša says:

    You look adorable with this big bump!

  39. Lacey says:

    Let’s see…you and another blogger I follow both had a post about this dress today! I think it’s a sign that it belongs in my closet…at least that’s how I will justify it when the credit card bill comes!

  40. Love the bag!! :)

    You’re such a gorgeous pregnant woman!! The bump is usually bigger on baby #2 right?! Can’t wait for you to have your second little one. If Miss Isla Rose is any indication of how cute this baby is going to be, everyone is in for a real treat!! (I swear she gets more precious ever day! Love seeing her on snapchat!!)

    Have a great weekend!!

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
