WIW 2/9-2/14 On call at week 37

I haven't had a whole lot of time to keep up with the forum this week as I've been on call this whole week at the hospital. Here are my WIWs this week. Many are repeats, but repeats will have to do when you're 37 weeks pregnant and rushing off to work!

Now I've made it to 38 weeks but I still have one more week of work left and it's going to be tough...full days of procedures every 30-45 min from with no lunch breaks on some of the days. I am just praying I don't go into labor early because I don't want to have to make my partner cut short his vacation to cover for me! At least I have learned how to do procedures sitting down, which I started to do during 2nd trimester after standing up all day, which started to make me lightheaded and my heart pound. Now I'm used to sitting down, much more comfy so I think I'll stick with it even after baby!

1. Gap sweater, burgundy maternity skinnies, Marc Jacobs Dotty purse, Rieker black booties, circles necklace
2. Japanese Weekend magenta maternity blouse, Bobeau polka dot skirt, MJ Dotty purse, All Black Fish bow pumps, circle necklace (four pieces with dots--matchy matchy heaven!)
3. This is one of my favorite non-maternity maternity outfits. So comfy with the dress and flats--like wearing pajamas and slippers. B44 orange stripe dress, Lafayette 148 caramel leather jacket, Alexis Bittar orange leopard pendant, Stuart Weitzmann leopard flats, Fossil floral satchel
4. Japanese Weekend striped maternity shirt, Tahari black leather jacket, Michael Kors studded black satchel, Rieker black boots, F21 spiky bracelet.
5. Inspired by last weeks' dress and scarf challenges, I decided to try another version. I used a "Magic Knot" tie from the scarf tying video. I now realize that scarves are useful for two reasons--to dress up a solid colored dress, and also to hide a post-pregnancy pooch. I think I'll wear these a lot post-partum to hide the 4th trimester belly. Ralph Lauren purple dress (non-maternity), H&M scarf, Fossil floral satchel, brown Rieker booties.
7. Another one of my favorite non-maternity maternity outfits--the peacock tunic. So fun and comfy. And it's a compliment magnet--everyone always has something nice to say to me when I wear it! Alberto Makali peacock tunic, H&M black skinnies, black Rieker booties, MK studded satchel, F21 spiky bracelet. I wore it with the black leather jacket at night to go see DD's school performance (African songs and dances with visiting scholars from South Africa).

Hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day! Thanks for looking and commenting!

    OMG you are so courageous. Hang in there! You look absolutely ravishing and stylish in the meantime. I am completely in love with that polka dot purse! Yet my favourite outfit is 5-6 because it is a mix of rebel girl and warm softness. It's a very original way to wear and showcase a scarf in a maternity outfit.

    Wow - you look amazing. I've not been here much since you announced your pregnancy, and you are glowing and look wonderful.

    I love #7 the best, but they are all great.

  • Karie replied 7 years ago

    I always love your outfits! My fav is #7, love that top! Is it a peacock pattern?

  • shevia replied 7 years ago

    Amazing pregnancy style! You really have a great balance between not hiding and not overexposing your pregnancy, if that makes sense. And amazing stamina still working all day at the very end of your pregnancy - I don't know how you do it!

  • Thistle replied 7 years ago

    You are THE most stylish pregnant woman I have ever known!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 7 years ago

    Natalie - I have never seen a woman look more gorgeous at 38 weeks than you! Seriously.

  • Sara L. replied 7 years ago

    All these outfits look great! With both my pregnancies, I worked up until the day the baby was born too. I thought it was good actually because it took my mind off how uncomfortable I was.

  • sarah replied 7 years ago

    You look fantastic! I can't believe you're working so hard at 38 weeks. Hang in there (baby, too!).

  • MsMary replied 7 years ago

    You look great! That peacock top is amazing, and I love your lipstick!!

  • Angie replied 7 years ago


    Just, WOW.

  • Tanya replied 7 years ago

    Natalie, you look absolutely incredible! I can not pick a favorite. You ,a and another forum member Patience that i miss a lot, are probably two most stylish pregnant women I have ever seen in my life!

  • catgirl replied 7 years ago

    Pregnancy is your best accessory! You just amaze me.

  • lyn* replied 7 years ago

    How do you do call at 37 weeks!!!! AND LOOK GOOD?

    I feel like running my face through a lawnmower I am so tired and I am not pregnant!

  • harmonica replied 7 years ago

    How do you do it?!! You look soooo amazing - and have been all through the pregnancy! You have really elaborated maternity wear to another dimension.

    I see your belly has dropped a bit since last time I saw your WIW - hope you are doing well and all the best for your last week at work :-)
