I am still here......

I have not gone anywhere and I have no news to share. I have simply lost the will to post pictures of myself in maternity clothing (the same 5 outfits to be exact). With 30 days left until the due date of the baby I have well and truly hit the wall.

I am very lucky in that I am still feeling very well, I am still out walking with the dog most days, I am still at work 4 days a week, I am still sleeping well most nights and all midwife appointments etc are showing that all is well. But, the baby is growing rapidly now and I am becoming uncomfortable. Also I have very swollen hands and feet (and some days face - nice) and that is just something that does not need to be photographed each day.

I am still from time to time taking pictures of what I am wearing, but I am working less and outfits are the same - so I really do not feel like posting them. I managed so long to make my own clothes work for me that I count myself as lucky. I can not imagine having felt like this earlier on!!

I am planning on finishing up with work in the next 2 or 3 weeks, but I still do not have an exact date in mind. I am not sure how much posting I will do in that time, but I will do my best to keep you all up to date with things. When I do finish up I am planning on taking at least 12 weeks off (no less than that, but hopefully quite a bit longer). I do hope to keep blogging on quite a regular basis - but I have never blogged from home so it is going to take a bit of getting used to with locations etc.

I am still lurking out there reading blogs too, but mainly I am not commenting as I am so jealous of the lovely fitted, belted and varied outfits (I will not even get started on the shoes) that you are all wearing. I am scared that I say something green eyed and not nice - its hormonal and I do not mean it!

Ah, you have looked so smashing for so long - I find you as inspiration! The last few weeks are tough, but I bet you are far more lovely than you think. But take this time to nest, to care for you and prepare for the little one. We'll be waiting for your return. :)

Bless your heart, sweetie! I have missed seeing you around, but completely understand. Be sure to keep updated (either here or through Twitter) about how everything goes with the babe and all. :-)

Boutique Girl - so nice to hear that you are well! Those last few weeks are so very difficult, but hang on in there, you'll get your reward very soon! Take care.

Hi Aimee, good to hear from you! Although I'm sorry you've hit a wall, fashion-wise, I have to say it's wonderful that you're feeling as well as you can and just concentrating on your new adventures!! You've got so much exciting stuff going on and you shouldn't apologise to anyone!!

You always look fab anyway - I'm jealous of you that you post a pic of your outfit every day. It's brave to put yourself out there so just chill and put your feet up now... not long to go!!

Got your email and will reply with final detail! Got exciting bracelet news too... :)

Hey, keep smiling! Not long to go now and then you will have loads to post - baby pictures! Which I'm sure we all can't wait to see having followed you through your pregnancy all the way.

I think you've done great getting this far and still posting pictures regularly. It shows a great creativity on your part that you managed to work so many regular clothes into your maternity wardrobe. And you've been rocking the flat shoes as part of your fabulous style. You have so much to look forward to with the baby and your upcoming holiday. Try to enjoy these last few weeks of pregnancy - it must be all part of the experience I would imagine, and rest up whilst you can. Can't wait to meet baby Boutique Girl when she or he arrives.

You honesty is so charming :) From what you've posted there, you have no doubt had a very graceful and stylish pregnancy. Hang in there and soon you will have something to make everyone else green with envy! Rest up, mum :)

Thanks for the update and glad to hear you are "well". :) I'm sure you're more radiant than you feel, but completely understand how you might not be feeling that way. Hang in there and enjoy the quiet while it lasts. We all look forward to "seeing" you again soon... and the little one too!

Boutique Girl said...

Thank you all so much for the kind words. You guys are my inspiration in so many ways and I can not wait to truly join you all again!

Stumbled across your blog when visiting Jane Ggallagher's site. Thanks, really liked the pics of your laundry in the wind and sunshine. Also think your little dog is adorable. Mine somehow has become camera shy. As soon as she hears the camera click open ( even if I hide in another room! ) she gets up and goes away.
