I am 27, nearly 28 weeks pregnant now and getting more and more fed up with maternity clothing. All my maternity jeans are annoying me now so I'm in skirts/dresses/leggings ALL THE TIME. Which is fine, but I don't have that many dresses that fit. Just a few maternity ones. It's getting to that stage in the pregnancy now where despite being at my biggest (well, obviously I'll be getting bigger, but you know what I mean) and most at need of maternity clothing, it doesn't feel like it's worth buying any more. I don't know.. I will have to buy some more tights I think because I'm wearing my current ones so much they are getting baggy and I can't hack wearing my normal ones, they make me feel nauseas I think I need a couple of pairs of new leggings as well, maybe a 3/4 length pair for when it gets a little warmer (remember that heatwave we had last March - what if we have another one of those!) and maybe a coloured pair.. Other than that, I think I'll be trying to make do with what I've got. That does mean I'll have less to post style wise though, so if I go a bit quiet, it's only because I don't want to bore you with the same tops/dresses each week!
Yesterday I riffled through my wardrobe and decided to try on one of my pre-pregnancy dresses just in case it fitted. It did! Not only that, I think it looked pretty good, and it made me feel spring like, just like I wanted. I teamed it with my gorgeous bright Stella & Dot scarf (you can buy Stella & Dot via me if you like, just ask!), my denim jacket and my comfy clarks flats. It felt so nice to bust out some colour and pattern. My goodness, I'm really missing my regular wardrobe!
Beret - H&M
Sunglasses - TKMaxx
Scarf - Stella & Dot - contact me if you wish to buy!
Jacket - New Look - last summer
Dress - Top Shop (quite old)
Tights - H&M Mama
Shoes - Clarks
Not long now...
Pregnancy wise, I'm feeling the strain. I am in pain all day and night, it never eases. My hips/pelvis are achy and walking is becoming hard. I'm not sleeping well... moan moan! I discovered a horrible varicose vein at the back of my left leg last week which nearly brought me to tears. I love dresses that are above the knee and can't bare the thought of not being able to get my legs out in the summer, so I'm really hoping that it'll get better once I've given birth. It should do. In the meantime, I'm looking for compression tights to help me out... they are £20 a pop though!! Combined with my desperate need for a new bra (my boobs are such an awkward size due to small back/large cupsize) I am going to be bankrupt before this baby gets here...
The nesting is kicking in big time. I'm itching to get baby's room all sorted out but I can't until we move the sofa out of there. Don't know when that will be. I just want to get the sofa out, cot up, chest of draws in, get rid of the old chest of draws, put all the baby clothes away and then get on with the fun stuff - prettyfying the room!! I've got some beautiful artwork and decals to go up. I need to get some bunting and more shelves... I WANT TO NEST PROPERLY!!
Are you pregnant? How are you coping? Are you staying stylish? Let me know!
