Normally our weekends are filled with family activities, lots of fun but also a little tiring when you’re growing a baby. This Saturday I had my most relaxing Saturday morning ever, courtesy of the mandatory Glucose Tolerance Test I sat down in a hospital chair for 2.5 hours of blissful peace and quiet. No interruptions, no noise, no nappies to change, no arguments to solve, no laundry to fold, just me and a good book… I could get used to that! During my past pregnancies I have always managed to pass the glucose test so let’s hope it will be smooth sailing this time too, fingers crossed. Don’t worry, when I got home I made up for lost time by making cookies with my lovely little tribe and pottering around in the garden. For those keeping track, here are this week’s Mama on Monday shots:
Black Shirt Dress (RRP $103, now $75) by Eve of Eden
Some of you may remember that I featured this dress (and its siblings in navy and chambray) on the blog before, back in 2013. I bought my first Eve of Eden shirt dress when I was expecting baby no.4 and loved it so much that I have bought two more since then. These dresses are so easy to wash and wear, they are stretchy, comfortable, timeless, flattering and even have nursing access via the front buttons. This time I am wearing mine with a plaited black belt but each dress comes with fabric belt to match so you can give some extra definition to your growing baby bump.
Over Belly Style Leggings ($10) by Fertile Mind
If you’ve been following the Mama on Monday series you know I have worn these everyday black leggings a lot, and at a bargain price like this I think they should be in any expecting mama’s wardrobe. If you’re yet to grab a pair be quick as I am sure stock won’t last!
Marshmallow Cream Gumboots (RRP $79.95) by Gummie Boots
