Maternity style ::: 20 weeks

"Err, what was I saying?"

Yup, at 20 weeks baby brain has officially kicked in and I frequently lose myself half way through a sentence. Just as well I don't have a serious job or anything :-)

This past weekend we had the perfect excuse to dress fancy as a friend from home married a southern boy. The wedding took place in their backyard on the water and was the ideal setting. Congrats again Liz & Ben! 

I'd picked up this dress a few months back for the wedding with the hope that the elastic waist would stretch enough by the time the wedding rolled around and I just made it. So far i've only bought a few maternity vests and am thankful that I have so many elastic waist skirts. I can't imagine being pregnant in cold weather...all those layers? Must cost a fortune! Oh wait, i'm due in November. B*llocks!

Happy weekends y'all x

And a belated Happy Birthday to the Bot. What a handsome chap he is x

A few snaps from the wedding...

Maternity style ::: 18 & 19 weeks

...and hairbands are a pregnant girl's best friend.

Who knew the trusty hairband would come in so useful when preggers. This little genius of an invention will extend the life of your jeans / shorts for another month at least. Woop. Simply loop one end (A) of the band through the top buttonhole. Take the other end (B) and loop through end A and pull tight. Your hairband should now be secured to the buttonhole (it's the same process you use for making friendship bracelets if I remember correctly). Now just loop the remaining end over your button et voila, a few more inches added. You probably want to wear a long top or a belly band to cover the top of your jeans. I forgot and spent the day yanking down my top.

We took these pics on our last day in Yosemite National Park by the waterfall. Such a beautiful place I really wish we were back there. More pics on that later.

I always take my mat pics on a Sunday as that's when my maternity week officially begins. On this particular Sunday we were travelling back from LA on a ridiculously early flight and certainly didn't feel like taking any pics. So I just snapped this one on the iPhone. It sums me up quite well at this point. I've lost sight of my pants and am praying my nail varnish doesn't chip as reaching down over the bump is becoming increasingly difficult.

Maternity style ::: 17 weeks

"I feel sick. And I need a wee. Now."

Yay, we're back from our little Californian roadtrip. More on that in another post - so many photos, argh. 

So pretty much most days go like this at the moment..."I feel sick. And I need a wee. And I think I feel sick." Seriously, all governments should provide free toilet paper for pregnant woman. I swear i'm on a roll a day at the moment. Fun times.

Happy weekend all. x
