I have a weakness for polka dots and was excited when I spotted this maternity sweater in the fun black and white print. The sweater is super stretchy and while it covers my 39-week bump nicely, I’m hoping it’ll also be a great piece to wear postpartum, especially during those early weeks when by body will still be going through lots of changes and I just need something soft and forgiving. I doubled up on the polka dots and layered the sweater over another white polka-dotted shirt. The mix of prints is subtle and given the monochromatic pairing, the combination played off nicely and was perfect for a cozy weekend look!
As for a bump update, I hit the 39-week mark on Sunday and it’s crazy to think that at this point in my first pregnancy I would have been holding a 2-day old newborn! Baby girl is still moving around quite a bit in there and while I have had a few strong contractions here and there, there hasn’t been anything consistent. From my sonogram a couple weeks ago, I also learned that the baby is sunny-side up, so I’ve been working on a few positions to encourage her to turn around (I’m bouncing on a big exercise ball as we speak!). Crossing my fingers she’ll decide to do a little spin before deciding to come out!
