Maternity style: week 38

week 38
week 38 -1
week38 -3

How huge am I? This was the first day of week 38. I really wanted to get a picture of this dress in daylight (previously seen in artificial light), even if it was wintery barely there daylight.

I suppose this is as good a time as any to pre-emptively say goodbye, because I really could be having the baby any day now. And not too soon either! It’s been nice to have a couple of weeks of rest, but now I’m getting a bit stir crazy. I’m so uncomfortable and immobile, I can’t really go out and DO anything and sitting upright on hard chairs for longer than an hour is a problem. So mainly I just lounge on the sofa watching TV, knitting and obsessing about when and how labour will start, property stuff and the promotion board happening at work in February that I have completely failed to prepare for (I’m not that bored yet!).

I’ve scheduled some mainly wordless posts to cover the Christmas period, and I’ll be reading blogs while I’m still at home and babyless. At some point the scheduled posts will run our I suppose! I don’t know how long I’ll be away (I honestly still don’t have a clue what the parenting will be like), we’ll have to see!


Outfit stats: * dress – Jojo Maman Bebe * cardie – New Look * leggings (size 18 and not maternity) – was randomly in a bundle of baby clothes I got off gumtree * boots – clarks originals * earrings – I made them *

    Hey Franca,

    I’ve been lurking here around ever since you left Brussels. 🙂 I enjoyed your regular musings, as always, as well as reading about your almost-motherhood. The very best of luck with the birth! I hope all will go well and wish you every bit of happiness afterwards. I’ll look forward to reading more about your experiences as a parent!
