The Day Before

For my own memories, and with my lack of vanity, I wanted to publish a photo of my largest point of pregnancy: The day before labour started. At the time, I didn't feel that large, but now... OMFG. That's a LOT of baby there in that photo.

I remember having my midwife check up that morning, and during her visit I had a contraction that was different to the (Toni) Braxton Hicks types. As we were given 4 due dates during the year, Baby Darling ended up being born on one of them!

The dress is my Sew Weekly creation from earlier in the year, and it got so much wear all the tummy area became worn out, you know how knit fabric gets all baubly? (It pills, or whatever it's called?)

Hope you're having a great weekend!


  1. i love this photo!!! and i've been meaning to comment on your gorgeous new darling, congratulations!

  2. I love looking at photos from when I was pregnant. It seems so long ago! I felt huge at the time but looking at photos I was even bigger than I realised. It's crazy! It seems like a lifetime ago.

    1. I know, can't believe how long ago it feels and that we were pregnant for most of this year! xoxo

  3. I love how real your photo is. You look tired and your ankles are swollen. I am 33 weeks pregnant, with our first too,and I want to be at the point you are at with a darling baby! Congratulations!

  4. Congrats on Baby Darling! Gosh we women are amazing creatures aren't we....

  5. Loving the "real-ness" of this photo, V. Of course you look a bit tired and swollen, but you're still smiling : ) It's almost as if baby Darling is in there saying "look out world, here I come!"


Thanks for being awesome and a total darling, leave a message!
