I’ve gotten a tonne of emails in the past about easy nursing wardrobe solutions, so I figure it’s about time to do a post about one of my simplest tricks.
It was soooooo fun, and looking back I’m totally astounded by how much my body changed! If you are pregnant or hope to be sometime in the future, I highly recommend taking periodical photos! It also has the added benefit of keeping family that are far away up to date with your pregnancy (in fact I got many phone calls from my mom reminding me to take the photos because I kept forgetting!!)
It was incredibly easy – I wore the same top each week, just stood up against a plain white wall, and we marked a spot on the floor so that we too the photos from the same place every week. That’s it.
And though I adamantly denied it both times, my shirt colour does mean something. When I found out I was pregnant with my daughter I wore a pink shirt in all the photos because I was so convinced she was girl, and this time I wore a blue shirt because I was sure it was a boy. I was right both times – of course it could just be that I got lucky with my guesses twice (there is a 1 in 2 chance!), but I’ve decided to believe I had some sort of mom intuition!!
Anyway, can you guys believe how much my belly grew?? And that my 9lb little boy actually fitted in there?? It’s amazing!
Hey guys, I was super flattered and excited to find out that I’m featured today on Glamour.com! You can check it out here.
This has totally made my day… actuallly my week :)
I love it when a DIY project is fast and easy! I got an email from a lovely gal the other day asking how she could make her own leggings, and it gave me the idea for this refashion. It’s fast, it’s easy and its perfect if you’re a beginner or have limited time to sew (which if you have a toddler like me, then you do!!).
Well as promised before Christmas, I’ve been working away and created a little tutorial for all of you on how to make a wrap cardigan.
I absolutely love wrap cardigans. They’re especially flattering and versatile for pregnant women. I’ve seen gorgeous ones on Anthropologies website many times, and I seriously considered buying this gap cardigan . I never bought either sweater because I’m one of those terrible people who’s always thinking to myself “I could make that soooo easily, so I really shouldn’t buy it”… what makes it worse is that I hardly ever actually make these things. I feel like it makes me some sort of a hypocrite if I say I can make it but never do, you know? So I decided to make my take on both cardi’s.
I love this maternity top – I’m living in it. Whats even better is I made it from an oversized white mens tshirt.
