Me Made Maternity - Week 37: Winning

Wednesday, May 13, 2015
On Sunday when we took these, it was so windy that I spent half the time trying not to eat my hair and the other half of the time trying not to flash the camera!

I am now officially considered 'full term' albeit early full term, which means the little dude could come at any time now and should be fine navigating the big wide world on his own (well, in terms of being able to breathe with no help etc. I am well aware that we can't just leave him to fend for himself while we go out for a pizza or something, hehe).

We also finish our antenatal classes this week and I have to say, I'm relieved. They don't finish until really late and by the time we get home it's around 9.45pm and I'm always surprised that I've not turned into a grumpy pregnant pumpkin on the way back (though David might disagree, but he'd never say anything... wink).

As always, the heartburn continues, the kicks to my right ribs get stronger and when he moves, those little stabby pains in my bladder are a regular occurrence. When I told my midwife about those stabby pains, her response was an excited 'GREAT!!" to which I replied "NO!! They hurt!!".

Only in pregnancy are stabby-bladder-pains a good thing (unless you've got an infection, in which case, get it treated ladies!!) because it means the baby is moving on down. And as he moves on down, and the birth gets closer, I'm starting to think more about it and therefore, getting a touch more anxious. I think it's more fear of the unknown and not knowing when exactly that unknown thing will start or how long it'll last for, more than anything else. I know many people say you don't tend to remember the actual birth itself, but still...

My midwife has also let me know that there is officially no where else for him to grow now except outwards, so I'm watching and waiting to see how this all progresses, and how much shorter at the front my dresses will get. The high-lo hem is still on trend, no?

Speaking of dresses, I'm still wearing these Vogue ones. Sorry if it's at all boring, but comfort wins over anything else these days. If I'm not in pj's or occasionally in a RTW stretchy knit dress, I'm wearing one of these. I'm so happy that I can still wear things I made that make me feel slightly normal and like myself.

Speaking of Me Made, it's Me Made May (as if you didn't already know!!). I struggled with whether I'd participate this year and came to the conclusion that I didn't really have the time nor the energy nor the me-made wardrobe I've had access too in the past to take part. All you'd be seeing are these dresses, my Miette Cardigan and some me-made pj's and maternity Bronte Tops everyday (tutorial coming!).

But, I am currently sponsoring a prize for MMM'15 this week! Make sure you head over to Zoe's blog to enter to win your choice of one of my patterns and hopefully next year, I'll be back with a Me-Made-May bang!

  1. I've been following your pregnancy and I'm glad that it's coming to an end. I wish you all the best for the big day!

  2. Good luck with it all. You'll remember the birth & discover that mums freely share their story. You will 'forget' the pain. Meaning you'll remember that it hurt like mad, but it's hard to recall that pain. Just remember, during 10 min. of active labour, you have 3 min. of contractions & 7 min. of no contraction. Focus on those. You'll be a champion. Your body knows what to do. Cannot wait to see bubba pics. ;) cheers!

  3. You look radiant! I just finished my second Felicity dress, and I looove it! When I get around to posting pictures on my blog I'll let you know. Thanks for the great pattern. :)

  4. Wow Jen, you're looking marvellous! At this point I think my brain just squished into a squishy mess... I can't believe you're taking photos and writing so well!

    The birth will be the way the birth is meant to be, your body will do what it is meant to do... I would look at the breastfeeding info as much as you can now so you're not overwhelmed and tired... and saying WHAT WHY is it not working! xoxo

  5. Looking good, lady! I love your outfit- you look adorable! Your tights are super cute.
