So it all was getting a bit frustrating. I had bits of freelance work in the meantime but the longer it went on the more anxious I got. Then I had three interviews within three days and three offers not even a week later! So now I have a new contract and will start June 2nd and I feel like a massive weight has been lifted off my shoulders. But you see there is a bit more to the story as to why I could breathe a huge sigh of relief.
I'm pregnant. 21 1/2 weeks pregnant to be exact. Going on job interviews 19 weeks pregnant is interesting to say the least! I wasn't lying about my pregnancy but I was employing every tv trick (you know when actress is pregnant, but character isn't) in the book to disguise my growing bump: cropped blazer, long scarves and the giant bag you see above.
My new contact knows I am pregnant and are totally okay with it and accommodating so I couldn't be happier. The job is really exciting and challenging and will see me work between Edinburgh and Glasgow up until September when I will take a break to have Blondie Boy's new sibling and then come back a few months later to finish up! It's great to not only have a new contract but to know I will have work waiting for me when I come back, too!
Blondie Boy is pretty excited although he is very clear he doesn't want to have to deal with any poopy diapers. His super cute big brother tee is from Tee and Toast. You have no idea how hard it was to find a cool big brother tee!
Second time around I feel like my bump is much bigger so normal clothes aren't really an option. That being said this is a maxi dress I've worn before that I got at TK Maxx but since I'm a shorty it actually fits better with my bump taking more fabric and making it shorter!
It's so nice to be able to show off my bump rather than hide it and now I'm in full on maternity shopping mode! So tell me what are your favourite maternity brands? It's been 5 years since my last pregnancy and I'm hoping that the selection has improved :)
I will keep WIWW to fashion and do a bump update every Friday but I can't really help that maternity wear is going to creep in so apologizes if that annoys anyone! I do have a fabulous, non-maternity, giveaway coming soon so keep your eyes peeled!
