Wearing : Bump Beetleshack 26 Weeks







26 Weeks, I'd say the count down is on.

It's official- i'm obsessed with redecorating this house from tip to toe, renovations included. Dave never gets a moments peace with my constant nattering about interior wall colours, textiles, children's rooms, new washing machines, fridges, air conditioners- whatever, If you can buy it, I want it.

Rampant consumerism comes withe the pregnancy territory, right?

Fortunately (for Dave) our budget only allows for...well... none of these things. So i'll just shuffle some things about and hope for the best (i'll probably repaint several walls too).

Shoes c|o Sole Society


Tell me, do you go a little bit consumer crazy when pregnant?

  7. Ooooo I love this outfit - and your hair!

    I have never been pregnant, but am constantly wanting to consume and redecorate! Luckily, even just a small change like new pillows will satiate me (for a bit ;)

  13. This made me laugh in empathy (also, great frock, by the way)!

    I was moderately obsessed while pregnant, but now that the little one is here and I'm home most of the day while on maternity leave, I've come up with a vast list of new/better things I want for the home! Our budget doesn't really stretch to anything either, so I've been doing the rearranging thing and DIY new art.

    Here's to smooth sailing for the rest of the pregnancy and to dreams coming true ;-)

  14. You look beautiful and I always want retail therapy, nit just when I'm pregnant!!!

  15. Wow hot mumma! You look amazing.

    I didn't nest at all during pregnancy, in fact the husband was the one who did all the nesting stuff (returfing, new pantry, clearing out the studio) but now I am home a lot I am thinking and plotting and planning ... hopefully there is a sizable renovation on the cards for later this year (please Mr Banker).

  18. You are looking very lovely - seriously, that dress is great on you.

    I became obsessed with sorting, arranging, organising and redecorating while pregnant - it's like my body knew there would never be time to go through the filing cabinet EVER AGAIN. And there wasn't.

  20. love the look. I am 13 weeks pregnant today and just want my house to look like a designer magazine. Unlike you though, I don't particularly have the motivation but like you, don't really have the budget. Will just have to make do!

  21. I actually have an overwhelming desire to simplify, simplify, simplify by purging our house of unnecessary things. Though I do plan to get a dryer before baby comes. You look gorgeous in that dress x

  22. The count is on already?!? Time so flies, even here in blogland.
    I don't have to fight the consumer bug, like you our budget does that for me :) I was obsessed with sites featuring baby interiors. Reigned that in a bit now. Still a sucker for beautiful toys. But only window shopping.
    You look lovely. x

  24. Gorgeous Em, you certainly rock the pregnant look! I did a lot of tidying and furniture building in my first pregnancy and an awful lot of darkroom developing (don't ask) in my second. There is definitely an increase in energy / mania in the early third trimester I reckon. Have a good week x

  27. That dress is amazing on you! I don't even have pregnancy to blame for my household wants ... but, alas, no money this year for such things. Can't wait to see the little nursery or nursery nook you create for this little one. x

  28. I'm pretty sure I'd be happy without the flung undies decorating our house. Anything else is a bonus. Although, we did just 'invest' in a second freezer, and already I've made a bunch of school foods and double dinners as a gift to future me. So we were a bit 'yay consumerism!' this week :) looking lovely, sweets.

  29. Best op shop find ever! You're so gorgeous, my friend! x

  30. Yay, you're nesting! Love it. And the dress looks really pretty on you too, love it all. I also don't mind splashing a bit of paint around either to keep things really interesting. Happy week Em x

  31. Stunning, Em! This dress is divine, you are glowing!

  32. You look so cute!
    That dress is perfect!

    I am about to buy a dishwasher!
    Be still my beating heart!

    When I was pregnant I was all about cleaning.
    I took over cleaning and organising inside the house and I made poor Daddy R scrub the outside.
    I would not let him rest until the entire house was cleaned with a power washer...no easy task as the back of the house sits on stilts about eight meters high!

  33. OMG - totally consumer obsessed...you did see my baby's room didn't you? I shopped and DIY'ed for weeks for that thing. On reflection, got a little cray cray ; ) Awesome dress by the way - you look beautiful! B x

  34. You are simply glowing, my lovely lady!

  35. Our natural desire to prep our nests for... what may come our way!
    For a while I convinced myself that the more I bought and feathered my nest, the better quality family life i would have... like the white leather couch...
    WHITE...with 3 boys...
    it aint white now.
    we are extending, cement floors and plywood ceilings...
    its all about hose down, and noise reduction... boys dont walk ANYWHERE...!
    They bowl a wicket, kick a goal, wrestle, roll, race,...

    Sorry Em, you look lovely, life with 3 little Ems will be bliss...!

  36. by the way, you must be a truly personable and warm person... are you astounded by how many comments you get on a daily basis? I think your honest and earthiness comes through..so rare.
