The Waiting Game…





Sandro dress | Gianvito Rossi heels | Mansur Gavriel bag | Illesteva sunglasses

With just over 3 weeks to go until my due date it now feels like a bit of a waiting game. They say that first babies are often late but then again she could decide she is ready at any time so I have to be prepared. My consultant always tells me that its good for ME to have a birth plan but at the end of the day no-one can predict what my baby’s plan is so its important to keep an open mind as labour can be very unpredictable. I try not to think too much about it because it has to happen and the last thing I want to feel is any kind of panic or stress. The 9 months of pregnancy definitely help prepare you but I guess you can never really be fully prepared for such a life-changing event as your first baby so I will just go with the flow as much as I can.

In the meantime I am enjoying my last moments with my bump. I have had so much fun styling it and sometimes wonder if I will miss it once its gone! This dress is another perfect non-maternity bump-friendly style – a recent purchase from Sandro. I love the colour and the delicate lace detailing – great for the summer and post-baby too!

 I am still far from being done with the nursery but hopefully in the next week or so I should receive all the last bits of furniture and then it will come together quite quickly! In the meantime I have been stocking up on toys and clothes and thought I would put together a little list of my favourite pieces for any mums-to-be looking for some inspiration! Most of these are bits that I have bought and can’t wait to dress my baby girl in (warning: they may not be the most practical items!) Click on the links to buy. xx
