Nearly There

I haven’t blogged for over two weeks which is unusual for me. I was completely exhausted last week, not that being tired has ever stopped me in the past. But I’ve noticed pregnancy fatigue is different from anything I’ve ever experienced before. It’s a profound weariness combined with feeling very heavy and weighed down. I’m six weeks away from my due date and I’m really looking forward to pregnancy being over. I’m not only looking forward to meeting our baby, but having my body to myself again. I can’t wait to be able to exercise normally, although I understand that it may take a little time to get to that point.

As the weather warms up, I’m even less inclined to wear body-con maternity wear which seems to be de rigueur. I picked up this frock from Mango, which is not a maternity dress, and I like it because it’s something I would wear if I weren’t pregnant. It’s nice to feel that I can maintain some of my identity whilst carrying a baby. I’ve styled it with a pair of sandals I bought last year (similar here), although my swelling ankles no longer allow me to wear anything with an ankle strap. I may have to surrender to the comfort of Birkenstocks.
