30 Weeks and 5 Days – Simple Comforts

Yet another long gap between posts. Time continues to evaporate at alarming rates. Visits from family and friends follow one from another, and life events remind me of the cycle of life. Meanwhile, at close to 31 weeks of pregnancy (little over 6.5 months), I’m learning a lot about myself. I’m loving the feeling of growing a baby inside my body, I’m learning a whole new range of french vocabulary and I’m learning what’s most important to me.

In terms of my day-to-day, my wardrobe is becoming more and more limited. I’m certainly not the same size I was pre-pregnancy, but my bump is minimal (my baby is fine, and the perfect size for dates). My tees, and jeans are all still wearable, and at this stage I’m keen to be comfortable. I followed some advice from other mothers, and invested in maternity jeans. So far my bump isn’t big enough to hold them up, and I’m worrying just how much use I will get out of them.

If comfort has moved higher on my list of priorities, then this outfit fits the bill. Flat shoes, and an oversized dress (picked up for only $2.50 on my recent trip home to Australia). Oversized dresses are working wonders for me at this point. The volumes of fabric hide the parts I’m conscious of and keep me cool, and in the case of this dress, the stripes enhance my belly.

Encore une longue pause entre mes articles. Le temps file à une vitesse incroyable. Les visites de famille et de mes amis s’enchaînent, et des évènements me rappellent le cycle de la vie. En même temps, et à presque 31 semaines de grossesse (un peu plus de 6.5 mois), je suis en train d’apprendre des choses sur moi même. J’adore la sensation de faire grandir un bébé à l’intérieur de mon corps, je suis en train de découvrir du nouveau vocabulaire Français et je me rends compte de tout ce qu’est important pour moi.

Dans ma vie quotidienne, ma garde-robe devient de plus en plus limitée. Je n’ai certainement pas la taille d’avant ma grossesse, mais mon ventre reste petit (mon bébé va bien, et a une taille parfaite). Je peux toujours porter mes t-shirts, et mes jeans, et à ce stade j’ai très envie d’être confortable. J’ai suivis des avis d’autres future mamans et je me suis achetée un jean de maternité. Je ne l’ai toujours pas mis car mon ventre n’est pas assez gros pour le tenir. Je m’inquiète un peu de ne pas avoir beaucoup d’occasions de le mettre.

Si le confort est devenu plus important sur ma liste de priorités, alors cette tenue répond à mes attentes. Des chaussures plates, et une robe un peu large (achetée pour seulement $2.50 en Australie). Les robes larges sont mes préférées en ce moment. Le volume de tissu cache tout ce que je n’aime pas et m’aide à rester à la bonne température, et dans le cas de cette robe les rayures mettent mon ventre en valeur.
