This look is one of my typical work basics- a long sleeved top with loose pants. The only difference is that it is not a top- it is a maternity dress that I found online and ordered in a small size so that I can wear it as a top. A printed maternity dress or a top is one of the best ways to elevate a simple (and I mean comfy) maternity outfit. The bigger my bump gets, the more I tend to wear wide pants, maternity tops and long cardigans. The most important thing is that the pants are well-cut and fit perfectly. The same goes for maternity tops- I like that they have enough space for my growing baby bump. If there is something that I learnt during pregnancy, it is that clothes that are too small (= your pre-pregnancy clothes) or too loose make you look bigger. Whatever you wear must fit perfectly- especially when you are pregnant.
This week we saw my OBGYN. He suggested that I cut down working hours and start working 50% until I go on maternity leave. In practice, I am on a 50% sick leave and work only in the morning. In the afternoon, I have to rest and put my feet up, literally. I did not want to agree at first but in the end I gave up. The truth is, I feel physically exhausted and my doctor just wants to do what’s best for the baby. It is also a great lesson for me- you can never predict what will happen. All you can do is accept what life brings. And if he serves you lemons, make a lemonade.
Thank you for reading and have a wonderful weekend!
