2013 Week 26: My Wednesday Style Collective.....

In approximately six weeks belly bubs will make an appearance and the end of my pregnancy style will come to end, but thankfully not an end to my style collective posts. I'll move into post-pregnancy style with all my vintage. I think through this pregnancy I have done a pretty good job at staying true to myself and my style and making my wardrobe and vintage pieces work for me as best as I can around a growing bump.

I'm a little sad to say that this past week I have really let style fall to the wayside. With two sick kids and it being school holidays, it raining constantly and being confined to the indoors, we've gone with several days of slothing about in our pyjamas.

But still with sick kiddies this morning I had no choice but to step out because we can't live on fresh air and I needed to get some fresh fruit and vegetables. This is what I threw together for a quick run out to stock up, and it was a good excuse to trial run the new to me vintage short sleeve polyester jacket top. It's one of my recent buys which will pull duty in my wardrobe to allow me easy breastfeeding whilst keeping with my style.
70's Short Sleeve Jacket - op shopped
Long Sleeve White Top - cheap retail buy
White Maternity Singlet Layered under Long Sleeve Top - hand me down
Leggings - retail
Shoes - retail
Crochet Cap - op shopped
"T" Puzzle piece Brooch - made by me

Now a funny story from this mornings venture out to the fruit and vegetable shop, is that I have some how pulled a muscle in my left butt cheek (sorry if that is too much info for some).  What resulted in our venture out this morning is me trying to push a trolley, hobbling with incredible pain, wrangling a two and four year old and me yelping involuntarily when I walked and moved the wrong way. I must of been a sight for some on lookers with my big belly and my crazy kids, yelling they wanted some celery. Yes my kids are weird they don't yell for chocolate, they yell for fresh vegetables.  Now I'm held up at home with pain in my butt cheek, my lower back and down my leg from my efforts, I'm a right mess. Hence my pathetic face in the pic above. Ben has had the call up to butt cheek massaging duties tonight as well as having to finish off the groceries. I'm sure he is ever so pleased being sick himself. Seriously things just couldn't get anymore comical around here at the moment if I tried.

I got that as well in the later stages of my pregnancy with Jarvis. Apparently it is the bub putting pressure on the spine. I found if I gently massaged my belly, Jarvis would get into a better position and the pain in my butt subsided.

Well you look gorgeous despite being in pain & having a rather horrendous week! Groovy jacket! I won't be at the Nerang fair this weekend, got my specialist appointment in the city....bummer. Not that I need to be bringing home any more old stuff! Lol. Xx

Allison's right, you have sciatica. It's really painful and limiting and very common in pregnant women. Best thing to do is to apply an icepack (wrapped in a clean pillowcase) to the painful area for 20 mins at a time and don't sit still for long periods of time.
The retro top looks great, a very useful buy! xxx

I am challenged by sciatica from time to time when I'm not pregnant. It's feeling not so much like that at this time, but then again who knows the body does and feels weird things when one is pregnant.

Yeah six weeks. Crazy stuff.

Lol this bub doesn't need much poking and prodding he does plenty of that himself and boy is it painful this time around.

All the best at your appointment my sweet. I hope I'll be able to catch up with you again soon. Be well and take care honey won't you?

Lol next I'll have the Big V on butt cheek warming duties lol.
I'm pretty pleased with the jacket, it's got a waist tie belt, but for obvious reasons I can't use if at present.

Lookin' super cute despite the home insanity, better outfits than I put together and my only responsibility is a little white cat. ;) Loving that tidy corner of your home, too. Nice and colorful.

Looking great despite the sciatica (I suffered during my first pregnancy, and it really hurt!) Such a neat baby bump, Trudie! xxx
