Yep, you read the title right. I'm 40 weeks pregnant. :) Baby T is definitely overdue! Still trying to keep as active as possible and making sure that I get out and about every day, as I know walking is benefitial.

Wore this simple jeans and tee outfit to go to the doctors on Wednesday. Added the scarf to keep me warm as it was a little chilly. Not the best photo of it, but it's a lovely blue skull scarf. I couldn't resist buying another skull scarf to add to my collection when Matches Fashion sent me a discount code! I really like the way they styled it on their site with the white tee and pale denim. Unfortunately I don't have any plain white tops that fit the baby bump, so went with this striped one instead. I liked the result, although I look forward to trying it with a white tee later!


Last worn: stripe tee, maternity skinny jeans, Havaianas, Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag. First time I've worn the scarf as it's a recent purchase.



Here's what I wore today:

Today was spent on the phone mostly! Lots of people calling and texting to see how things were going and if there are any signs of baby's arrival. I'm really feeling loved, with everyone checking in hoping all is still well, asking how I am and giving us encouragement.

Comfy knit and maxi skirt outfit today as I had another acupuncture appointment this afternoon. Loose layers are good to wear when getting poked with needles. And I'm pleased this stretchy knit still fits the bump. Looks very different from the last time I wore it! Thought that the ombre effect looked nice with the stripes, what do you think?

  15. It's good you have the dog to walk so you can get out each day. E was 10 days late in the end & I was so bored of walking out each day just to get out. Everyone was at work, cupboards were stocked so no need to keep walking to the shops.... Good luck!x

  26. How are you still wearing "super skinny jeans"? You're a wonder! I'm not a fan of the skull trend but I do love the colour of the scarf you're pairing the jeans with. Hope Baby T is looking to find its way out soon, for your sake! The waiting must be driving you wild. Rosemary x
