The last few weeks have been so trying for me as I'm in the end game of this pregnancy. I have never been one to be a Debbie downer or complain all the time but these last few weeks have been hard. The baby kicks have been so hard to the point I cry when she kicks me in my rib and I feel that sharp pain down my back. I haven't been sleeping because those kicks keep me up all night. I go to sleep at 11pm with my husband and wake up at 6am with him and in-between all those hours I probably get 3 hours of sleep. I'm not able to the things I like to do or that keep my mind of things like clean, organize, and do my job, blog. It's hard to sit or even lay down during the day. Only way baby feels comfortable is my standing up and I get it because it's getting crowded in there for both of us. I look at the calendar every day like a clock because yes I'm very excited to meet baby girl but I also am tired of being frustrated and in pain these last few weeks.

I voiced my frustration to my husband and felt so guilty saying it out loud. I don't want people to think I'm being ungrateful for this beautiful miracle God has blessed me with. But just because I'm growing a human doesn't mean I'm not human and feel physical pain. My husband always knows how to make me feel better and told me my feelings are valid. My frustration doesn't mean I love my baby girl any less. I had my 36-week appointment yesterday and also voiced how I felt to my doctor and she said: "heck I hated being pregnant!" I literally laughed out loud. She told me some people make out pregnancy to be this easy thing from start to finish and for some people it is but it's not like that for everyone. It's totally ok to feel the way I'm feeling. 

Somehow since yesterday I feel so much better and wanted to share this on my platform without feeling guilty about people judging me. Heck, there might be other mama's to be out there who feel the same or mama's who went through the same thing during pregnancy. I really do feel so much better now that I have shared it out loud. If any other mamas felt or feel this way would love to hear about your pregnancy experience.

My Maternity Shoot

"You are my definition of perfect"💗

I'm so excited to share these photos with you guys! I had such a hard time narrowing them down because I seriously loved them all. I can't believe in 5 weeks or less we get to meet our little precious baby and become first time parents. I'm dying to know who she looks like, how much hair she will have, how does her crying sound. Carrying her in me is such a miracle and I thank God every day for her. 

The kicks are getting harder, it's so hard to sleep at night, and I don't possibly think my skin can stretch anymore. It's been a tough last few weeks as I head into the final stretch but if I had to do it all over again just for baby girl I would. 


Come out any day now, baby girl, we are excited to meet you!

Oh hey, remember me? I feel like it's been so long since my last blog post. I promised to keep up with my blog posts but that's been so hard to do the closer we get to the baby's arrival. If you follow me on Insta then you have been keeping up with my updates there. I'm currently 6 weeks away from my due date and have been running around and getting things in order for the baby's arrival. Who knew there was so much to do for a tiny little person. My baby shower was also last weekend and we drove back home to shower baby girl with friends and family. I had so much fun at the shower and can't wait to share all the details in a post for you guys. 

We recently finished her nursery and I'm hoping to take pictures and share on here as well. I think my husband and I did a great job of creating a nursery in a one bedroom apartment. Seriously can't wait to share that post! So as you can see in a nutshell it's been a crazy couple of weeks at the Osorio household.

Caring For Your Baby's Skin This Summer With Baby Dove

I'm so excited for today's post because I love sharing products I love and brands I trust. As I'm 10 weeks (or less) away from my baby girls arrival I'm starting to stock up her nursery with all the essentials. I'm no stranger to the Dove family because it's a brand I used in my beauty routine for a long time. That is why it's a no-brainer for me to add Baby Dove to my baby girl's routine. Their cleansers and lotions are made with 100% skin-natural nutrients for your baby's delicate skin. I love products that are gentle on a baby's sensitive skin and that are made without dyes or parabens. Even though there is no right way to parent, I think taking care of your baby's skin is extremely important and Baby Dove offers a superior way to do so. 

If you mammas haven't tried Baby Dove, then now is the perfect time! A baby's skin is more at risk during dangerous sun rays so being on top of your baby's skin protection is key. My baby girl will arrive mid/end of summer and I'm ready to protect her skin with these great products that moisturize and nourish.


The Baby Dove Rich Moisture line of products includes everything you need to care for baby’s skin. Baby Dove Rich Moisture Shampoo keeps baby’s scalp moisturized with a hypoallergenic and mild formula that’s also paraben free. The fragrance is specially designed for baby’s delicate skin and it’s made with 100 percent skin-natural nutrients.

Baby Dove’s Rich Moisture Baby Bar provides more moisture than ordinary baby soap bars, and has gentle cleansers that help replenish skin lipids that keep baby's delicate skin healthy. If you’d rather use a wash, Baby Dove Rich Moisture Tip to Toe Wash is a great choice. It contains nutrients that are 100% identical to those found naturally in skin, and goes beyond mildness to help replenish the essential moisture and nutrients of the skin lost through bathing and produces a rich lather than keeps skin feeling clean.

Finish up your cleaning routine with Baby Dove Rich Moisture Baby Lotion, which soothes dry skin from the first use and gently moisturizes baby’s skin all day.


And Baby Dove Rich Moisture Baby Wipes are perfect for diaper changes and beyond. They are as gentle as water and great for cleansing all over.

Don't you just love trusted brands with amazing benefits for your baby's skin? I also have a coupon here you guys can use to save on future Baby Dove products.

I'm so happy to be apart of the mommy community and get to share my favorite baby products with other mommies out there. I definitely recommend Baby Dove to any moms and moms-to-be. I think these product benefits are amazing for your little ones. Have any of you tried any Baby Dove products? Which ones are your favorite?

Playing Dress Up

A lot of people lately have been telling me how I'm so well put together pregnant (especially this far along). I can honestly say don't let social media fool you. Just because I post all these pretty dressed up pictures doesn't mean that's how I feel every day. I definitely have my days where I feel super crapy, messy hair and wearing the only pair of sweats that fit me in the house. When I do have a good day though I just go with it and do all the things that make happy whether that's makeup, dressing up and looking put together. One of the things I promised myself since the beginning of this pregnancy was to not lose myself. I wanted to still do the things that make me happy. I knew there would be good days and bad days but on those good days, I want to roll with it and do things I enjoy.

That was my thought process behind this look. I can't wear heels like these anymore to actually walk and go places so I said why not dress up and shoot this look. I was actually surprised to see this ruffle dress still fit me! It's actually not a one shoulder dress but I've styled it here before and just wanted to make it look different. I think the tassel earrings gave it a more dressed up vibe. I found these on sale at H&M. I usually don't go for statement earrings but these were too cute to pass up!

Here are two parents-to-be just madly in love! As we are 9 weeks away my husband and I are trying to enjoy as much us time before baby girl arrives. That's one of the many pieces of advice we have been getting from people,  to try to enjoy as many date nights as we can now. We still will make time for date nights after the baby but know it will be a little harder. The month of June is actually our anniversary month where we make 4 years married. What better way than to share on the blog a his and hers date-night-style look? 

These days, for date night, I opt for something as comfortable as possible because I'm carrying a bowling ball in my tummy. For this date night look, I opted for a simple stretch dress and these comfortable wedges from Clarks available at Zappos. My favorite part about these wedges is that they have straps, which are so convenient for me since I can't tie my shoes anymore.

For hubby's date night look he's wearing a printed button-up (his favorite) with fitted jeans and his Clarks loafers from Zappos as well. This is one of my favorite date night looks on hubby. It's so fresh and screams spring! Zappos has an amazing selection of shoes for both men and women and they have fast free shipping.

No laces, no problem. That seems to be my new motto since I hit my third trimester and can't tie my own shoes anymore. I've stocked up my closet with a few slip-on sneakers and been styling summer outfits with them. These metallic ones from Johnston & Murphy are my favs. They are super comfortable and super chic. My feet haven't swelled up yet so I still fit into sneakers. Not looking forward to that part of the pregnancy but for now, my sneakers will do!

Lately, I been looking for stretchy comfortable clothes and this midi skirt with this off the shoulder gingham top paired perfectly with my sneaks. It was a chic meets casual vibe. A lot of people have been asking me where do I get the energy to still want to get dressed being pregnant. All I can say is don't let social media fool you because yes there are days I don't want to wear makeup or get dressed. The days I do though I don't over complicated and just wear comfortable clothes. Being pregnant shouldn't stop you from doing certain things that make you happy. I love playing with makeup and I love dressing up especially shoes. I've just traded in a lot of my heels for more comfortable footwear and styled more relaxed looks. Just work with what you got!
