Happy New Year everyone! For most office workers it is probably your first day back at work so how does it feel? Suffering from major holiday blues I am sure? Wishing you were still stuffing your face and not putting on a single pound? Sorry, today is back to reality. I hope you all waved 2014 goodbye in style and welcomed 2015 with open arms and who has hit the sales? I certainly did and bought a few bargains for myself and the bump. So, back to my usual Monday baby post where I will share with you my pregnancy progress. I am now 26 weeks pregnant and I have to say I am starting to feel more and more tired if I walk too much. My hips and my back definitely get it the worse and after a days shopping. In the sales it was safe to say it felt like I did the marathon.
I am still not massive compared to some women who are at the same stage as me so I cannot complain too much but either way I can feel the baby weight on my hips and back. I am still keeping up with my light jog everyday but I most certainly did not do any over Christmas. I know a lot of my readers and followers are curious as to how big I am now but lets just say at 26 weeks I still have not bought a single piece of maternity clothing. I can still fit into all my clothes but then again I do wear a lot of shift dresses (or just dresses) in general which is handy for pregnancy so for New Years Eve what did I wear? First of all in the sale I bought a beautiful headpiece and I was determined to wear it for New Years Eve, then I thought would a headpiece look a bit too much with glasses?
Both items sit on your head/face area so will it be a case of I am wearing too much? Over accessorising? There is a famous quote by Coco Channel, “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory”. From that quote my dilemma was right there in front of me. I wanted to wear the headpiece because I bought it in the sales but did that mean I needed to take my glasses off because both of these items are accessories and pretty close to each other? Or just I ignore the famous Coco Channel quote and wear them both? In the end I went for both so what do you think? Too much or is it ok? I think it looked ok but might have been better with different glasses… less bulky ones but they are my new glasses and I love them at the mo.
Anyway, yes that is my 26 weeks bump… not big at all and I can still fit into this jumpsuit which is like a miracle itself but once again I cannot complain because I am saving a lot of money on maternity clothes 😉 After all the effort of dressing up I didn’t even end up leaving my house on New Years Eve and that is a whole other story in itself and I won’t bore you all with it.
