Pregnancy Update!

Hey ya'll! It has been a really long time since I have posted on my blog. Even though I have not been active on here, I have been very active on my YouTube Channel and on Instagram and SnapChat (caseyferg_xoxo). If you haven't already, be sure to subscribe to me on YouTube and to follow me on Instagram and SnapChat so you don't miss out on what I'm doing and what I'm up to.

If you don't follow me on any of those platforms, you may not know that I am pregnant! I am currently 18 weeks pregnant with baby number two and am due on September 30, 2016. I have been documenting my pregnancy by filming pregnancy vlogs that I have been uploading weekly on my channel. I have a whole pregnancy playlist saved of all the pregnancy related videos I have done so far if you want to check those out.

In my pregnancy vlogs, I am doing weekly pregnancy updates where I go over my pregnancy symptoms, pregnancy weight gain, show of my growing pregnant belly, as well as maternity products and baby clothing and items that I have been purchasing and loving that week. I have had a ton of fun filming these videos and putting them together. I love watching pregnancy vlogs and mommy vlogs myself, so it felt very natural for me to document this pregnancy myself.

My first pregnancy vlog was my Pregnancy Announcement video where I shared my exciting pregnancy news, as well as my story and journey with getting pregnant with baby number two. This pregnancy is actually my third pregnancy. I had gotten pregnant a second time in September 2015, but sadly was diagnosed with a blighted ovum when I went in for my viability scan at 9 weeks pregnant. If you have ever suffered a missed miscarriage, a blighted ovum, or a miscarriage at any time in your life, you are not alone and I understand how you feel. You can watch that video, and hear all about pregnancy journey, as well as my blighted ovum story in my Pregnancy Announcement video down below.

My second video was my 14 Weeks Pregnancy Update, making it to the second trimester of pregnancy, as well as an overview of my first trimester. In this pregnancy vlog, I go over my pregnancy symptoms from the moment I found out I was pregnant, all the way through 14 weeks of pregnancy. I also go over my pregnancy do's and don't's and show off my growing baby bump. You can watch my 14 Weeks Pregnant - First Trimester Update in the video down below.

My third pregnancy vlog was my 15 Weeks Pregnant Update. This video includes my pregnancy symptoms for the week, products I had been loving at the time, as well as my growing pregnant belly. If you are interested in watching my 15 Weeks Pregnant Update, click the video down below.

My fourth pregnancy vlog was all about my 16th week of pregnancy. In this pregnancy video, I go over my 16 week pregnancy symptoms, old wives tales pertaining to gender as well as the gender reveal, and share products I had purchased and loved for the week. If you are interested in knowing all about my 16th week of pregnancy, you can watch my 16 Weeks Pregnant Update down below.

My fifth pregnancy vlog was my 17 Weeks Pregnancy Update. In this video I go over my routine doctors appointment with my OBGYN including what happens at my routine pregnancy appointments, my weight gain for the past month and total weight gain for the pregnancy so far, as well as the baby's heart rate. I also go over new and recurring pregnancy symptoms, show off my growing belly, and share recent baby clothes I had purchased after finding out the gender as well as clothes I had purchased for myself to keep my big belly cool in the summer. If you are interested in watch my 17 Weeks Pregnancy Vlog, the video is listed down below.

My sixth, and most recent, pregnancy vlog is my 18 Week Pregnancy Update. In this video I go over my usual topics such as pregnancy symptoms, show off my growing belly, and share with you a baby haul and clothing I have purchased for myself to get my through the heat of the summer here in Houston. I have some really great dresses that are not maternity, but will be perfect for my growing belly. I am a firm believer that you don't have to buy a whole new maternity wardrobe to get you through your pregnancy. There are a lot of great options that are non-maternity, that work perfectly at fitting a pregnant belly. If you are interested in my maternity and pregnancy shopping tips, as well as my 17 Weeks Pregnant Update, watch my video down below.

I am so excited about this pregnancy and have been loving sharing my journey with not only my friends and family, but my fellow preggo's out there! Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel to be notified when I post a new video. I post a new pregnancy vlog and pregnancy update every Friday going over my pregnancy symptoms, pregnancy experiences, pregnancy tips, my growing pregnant belly, as well as my favorites pregnancy products, baby clothes and baby products, and pregnancy fashion, maternity clothing, and non-maternity clothes to keep you looking pretty and fashionable despite your weight gain and growing belly throughout your pregnancy. Thanks so much for being part of my journey and I will talk to you again soon!
