Hiyaaa cuties!! Ok so if my eyes are looking tired...it is because they are. Sleep has literally escaped me since 10 weeks (I'm 30 weeks now.) I am exhausted. And the baby isn't even here yet haha. I feel like yelling "Don't you know how much you'll miss this free opportunity to sleep through the night in literally 2 months!!!" I get so mad at myself when my prime sleeping hours pass me by and I'm still awake thanks to pregnancy insomnia/discomfort. My body and mind are driving me crazy! "Just sleep, me! Enjoy it while you can!" (Spoiler alert...this self-yelling doesn't work.)
The last week I have absolutely devoured two books that have deeply and profoundly touched me. One is called "Mama, Bare: The Birth of Mother" and the other is "Nobody Told Me" by Hollie NcNish. HOLY MOLY. I have read a lot of books of pregnancy and motherhood...but these are a whole new ballgame. I highly recommend them both.
I have been super into wearing all white whilst pregnant. A la Kundalini Yogis. Bringing me to this outfit!! These are my dream maternity jeans...straight legged and cool white denim plus this oversized sweater that I bought long before pregnancy. I was going to wear heels but lol no ---> 30 weeks pregnant. I love these chelsea boots from &otherstories...they are my favourite winter staple piece. I have found that I have ditched my contacts for all glasses ace&tate during pregnancy. I don't know why exactly I suddenly don't like contacts but I'm quite pleased with my new found affinity for my seeing glasses. Also since it's England and you never need sunglasses...BLAAMO it's so lovely wearing seeing glasses esp. on a grey day. (aka, every day.) And of course, I am never without my Blondie basket from The Beaux Store.
I really had hoped I would have been able to describe my pregnancy as 'graceful' but at least I am able to pick my dates and eat them too. Dates like the food, not like the calendar. Anyway, here is my journal at 4am one snowy London morning... xo Ashley
