These are all work outfits--I was on call this week at the hospital so I had to work every day this week. Still wearing my regular outfits but I am starting to run into a few minor road blocks due to my "speed bump".
1. Maggy London wrap dress and black Stuart Weitzman Giveable ballet flats. I am wearing flats a lot more now for comfort, especially when I am on my feet all day at the hospital.
2-3. Anthro green and white kimono sleeve top. I bought this tunic top early in pregnancy thinking it would be a great "maternity" top, but now I realize that I'm going to be limited by the length. The bump is making it too short, so I won't be able to wear it as long as I thought. I still squeezed into my Paige Hidden Hills white jeans though--they ride under the bump so I've been getting away with it (getting tight but I can still button them up and they stretch a bit with wearing). I thought this outfit gave off kind of a 70's vibe with the Alexis Bittar orange pendant, cognac leather jacket, yellow D&B purse, flared white jeans and wedge sandals.
4. TJ Maxx print dress and black Cole Haan wedge sandals and yellow D&B bag. I was able to get out early enough to meet up with DH and the kids while they were at a birthday party. The dress was only $20 and I bought it a couple months ago knowing it was stretchy so I could wear it during pregnancy. DH has been losing weight and I've been gaining weight...it's like a fat transfer, LOL!
5. Classiques Entier teal ruffle tank, Halogen red pencil skirt, Tahari black leather jacket, Fossil red satchel, SW leopard ballet flats.
6. Tory Burch navy heart print dress, red bow belt, Fossil red satchel, SW red ballet flats.
7. Jason Wu for Target mustard sleeveless blouse, ASOS black and yellow chevron stripe skirt, black skinny belt, D&B yellow satchel, Cole Haan black sandals, Kate Spade Japanese floral laptop case. The button down blouse was a disaster! Either my bust has gotten bigger, or the tummy is causing problems. The blouse kept gaping at the bust and even popped completely open a couple times! OMG I cringe wondering if I was talking to other doctors or patients with my bra showing...I think I caught it pretty quickly though. OK, I am thinking it may be time to switch over to maternity clothes soon...
8. Alberto Makali peacock tunic, Gap Maternity Always Skinny jeans, Le Sak black purse, Born bronze ballet flats. I wanted to wear my black Gap Real Skinny pants but I couldn't find them--I turned my closet upside down this morning but it was nowhere to be found. I thought black leggings would be too revealing, as the top doesn't completely cover my butt. And my Blue Essence black skinny jeans were way too tight...they wouldn't even go up past my thighs! So I had to settle for these maternity jeans, which are not exactly work wear (for some reason I don't mind wearing black or white or red denim to work, but blue seems too casual to me), but it was all I could find. But everyone loved the tunic...even one homeless alcoholic guy (who I wouldn't think cared about fashion) said, "I really love that top on you...the peacock print is so cool!" That made my day!
It may be a combination of being on call the whole week (and having to come in in the middle of the night last weekend), but I am really tired this week! I'm starting to get a little winded going up the stairs and my heart started pounding after a long morning doing procedures standing up (I also didn't drink enough water that morning). I hope I'm not getting anemic (I was mildly anemic last pregnancy and I was very very tired near the end). At least if I get through the day tomorrow, I'm off work next week (going to my sister's wedding). I really hope I have the energy to last the rest of this pregnancy, because I'm planning to work right up until the end! Still a long way to go, not even halfway there!
Funny story for the week: everyone I see--coworkers, patients, etc. are STARING at my abdomen and asking me point blank if I'm pregnant (all my regular coworkers know but we only go to the hospital one week in six, so not everyone there has seen me in a while). One male anesthesiologist said, "I know I shouldn't ask, but you're looking rather..." and I said, "...fat?" LOL! People have no qualms! I know now NEVER to say anything first, because I made that mistake once (and only once). I hadn't seen a coworker in several months and she had a new cute tummy bulge and I asked (while looking at her tummy), "So, is anything new with you?" and she said, "No, I've just been gaining weight." Arrggh! Now I feel embarrassed every time I see her, and that was years ago! Another male coworker told me about the time he went up to a female coworker and congratulated her and rubbed her belly. She was not pregnant. And not amused. ;) I don't mind people asking me though, because I am obviously pregnant (though I wouldn't find it very funny if I wasn't!).
