Thank you so much for all your comments on my last post. The congratulations were heartwarming, but the fact that so many of you actually missed my random ramblings on here – well, if I am honest it was completely unexpected. I genuinely didn’t think anyone was remotely interested in what I have to say any more – so thank you for the kind words of encouragement.
I bought the black dress I’m wearing as a skirt here for the lovely Nat’s hen do in September. I was trying to find something I could wear to be glamorous but without looking fat and frumpy. I must say, for a cheapy New Look dress, the draping on this is spectacularly flattering and the jersey material is soft too. I’ll be getting plenty of wear out of it for any Christmas parties I attend too!
But currently I’m mostly trying to wear clothing I already own, perhaps modified with the few maternity pieces I’ve found absolutely necessary already: maternity leggings, belly band and tights. I was finding most regular fit leggings and tights too uncomfortable across my belly – although a handful of more forgiving items are still in regular circulation. I’m holding off more obviously “maternity” wear until later in the pregnancy, and getting as much wear as possible out of my existing wardrobe whilst I still can!
