Stripy Top: River Island
Cardigan: Topshop (Old)
Leather Pleated Skirt: Primark
I love this outfit. Well... I love this skirt. It's so comfortable and I seem to find myself wearing it all the time. It has an elasticated waist, which as you can imagine is great with a huge bump sticking out of me! My hair has not been cooperative today (ongoing issue...). So it ended up getting tied up high and forgotten about. I didn't want to straighten it though, in case it made matters worse so it's ended up a bit of a mess. But hey!
I have edited the disclaimer on my blog. I'm sure you realise that this is not a pregnancy advice blog, and I don't pretend to know anything about raising babies of how you're supposed to feel when pregnant! I don't mean to sound like an expert and so if I do, I apologise. This blog is simply a place for me to get my worries, silly thoughts and opinions out into the wider world, so that perhaps if you are pregnant and having a stress, you know you're not alone! I'm not perfect, I don't always make the right choices, but I do my best. This pregnancy thing is tough, especially when you don't have a lot of previous experience of hospitals and doctors. It can feel quite intimidating at times and there is a lot of pressure on pregnant women to be perfect. I'm not just talking about not drinking alcohol or smoking, but things like "don't eat fish more than once a week" and "dont go running anymore". Sometimes you slip up and eat tuna 3 times a week (I've done it). It doesn't mean your not looking out for your unborn child, it just means you are human! And it's important not to get too carried away listening to every single opinion from every single person who thinks they know what's best.
If in doubt, ask your Midwife or doctor. They are the ones who will know, and more than often reassure you that you're doing fine. If you feel silly making an appointment because you're worried that you ate an egg that wasn't 100 per cent cooked, DON'T! Just go! I've done it before (with the tuna situation). They don't look at you like your an idiot and they don't tell you off. They just reassure you and if it makes you feel better and stops you from worrying, then what's the harm? I know my midwife has been amazing!
Ps. Google is your ENEMY. DO NOT use google to diagnose problems! You will only end up reading about some women, somewhere who ate a tuna fish when pregnant and died. It won't put your mind at ease, it wont give you the right answers. Talk to a midwife instead.
Sorry for the rant! Hope your all having a lovely weekend!
