Baby news alert – no, I’m not pregnant. (Lovely Bloke has said that until I can work out how I can take a year of maternity leave and still have the business keep running, it’s not allowed. But I’m working on it…) Anyway, my lovely Sister In Law has baby news – we are very excited that Aunty A and Uncle S are going to have a baby next year. It’s been smooth sailing with the boys so far – we’ve not had any questions about how the baby got in there, but we are waiting for them….
Anyway, there’s no point me doing the job I do, and having the contacts I do, if I can’t help her find the coolest, cutest, funkiest stuff for the new baby. Heck, I’m even going to start a category about it – I can pretend it’s work but really, it’s not. It’s me having the fun bits of pregnancy without the aching back, going to the loo in the night and the panic over what sort of mummy I’ll be!!
So, the first challenge I’ve got, is to help her find some maternity clothes. She’s 5 foot 10 inches, possibly 11. And cannot get any trousers, jeans or even maternity leggings fit her!! But where do we go – it’s just got be something that’s got a 34 or 36 inch leg! You wouldn’t believe how hard it is to find something that will fit her. Bless her. And she’s got an uber flat, toned tummy, so she’s already got a bump at 15 weeks. She doesn’t look flabby like I did – it’s a bone fide bump!!!!
And she needs a gorgeous dress that will work for her for the office – and also for her final hurrah with her husband, over the Christmas break when they have a couple of days in the hotel where they went for their honeymoon in the Lake District. It wants to be something that will work for tall people – because as her bump grows, it’s going to get even more difficult to find things long enough for her!!
So where did you go for your maternity clothes – I went to Blooming Marvellous and it’s gone now, so over to you….
