3rd Trimester Gift Box

I had big plans to make/sew stuff for this box… but then I got lazy (or didn’t have time… etc… I’m afraid I have no good excuses). :/



  • Bravado! nursing bra (the name makes it sound very exciting… I just liked the pink zebra print)
  • A mini massager (I was assuming she would need this by now, but apparently her pregnancy has been pretty low key on the sickness/pain/etc. front)
  • Completely adorable top from ASOS (they sent the wrong size… hopefully it still fits okay)
  • Knit black maternity skirt from H&M

Now, there are a couple of stories behind this box. At first, all I’d planned for was the bra, massager, something handmade, and bath salts. I was going for the relaxing end of pregnancy stuff. But when the bath salts came in the mail (I ordered everything from Amazon), the container was open and the bath salts had infiltrated the entire box :/ Bad part was, the nice relaxing lavender chamomile scent smelled almost exactly like kitty litter. To me, anyway. And I’m pretty sure Sissy deals with enough of that smell with Toula around!

Oh, sweet Toula and the belly… I miss that belly! Here it is in all it’s glory:

Needless to day, I ditched the bath salts. So then I was ordering my new swimsuit from ASOS, and a bunch of maternity stuff kept popping up. I couldn’t resist the cute striped top. And then to the skirt… that skirt has been in my closet for a few years now. I’ve been wearing it, somehow always wondering why it had the curved shape in the front and not putting two and two together until I noticed the tag said “H&M MAMA”. So I’ve been wearing maternity wear this whole time not realizing it. :/ Who knew!? Oh well… but anyway, I figured it would better suit sissy’s belly now that she has one. And good info to know for someday… H&M has adorable maternity clothes!

See her 1st and 2nd trimester boxes here and here, respectively.

Oh, and check it out! Doesn’t look like much to me (looks more like a bunch of little body parts floating around) :/ but this is my little nephew waving hello! This picture was actually from June… but still had to share.

Until next time,
