A FEW MINUTES IN THE SUNSHINE


Today I got dressed and spent a little while outside before heading back up to my headquarters: the bed.
Funny how those gathered pregnancy kilos didn't really show when I was expecting, but now they're all over the place! Dag drinks a lot so I'm hoping he'll just suck it all out of me. But until then, here's where wrap around skirts come in handy.


There are two things* in this picture that I've managed to grow: apart from the obvious, my baby , also the aspiring sunflower in the pot in the background.

My skirt is vintage and blouse from Tara Starlet. Dag's cute little suspender romper is also vintage. Not that you can see that much of it or that it matters in any case but I just added it once I was at it.

OK, three;  my behind :) I just had to add that once as I was at that too.

These are such sweet photos of you and Dag. I think the second one is particularly adorable- you look so happy together!

You look as lovely as always. The blue skirt, the yellow house in the background and the shadows of the leaves in the sunshine make such a beautiful pic. Love it!!! Hugs from Miss Maple

Hi Ulrika!
Congratulations!
Don´t worry about the extra weight/strentgh deposit. I put on 26 kgs (!) during pregnancy and it fell off by itself and large strolls with the pram also helped a little ...

I just love these countryside photos. So 50's Finnish film feel. I've said it before and will say it again - Ansa Ikonen ja Tauno Palo (plus a baby now).

Maja said...

you look beautiful. There is something a bit 70's-ish about the pictures -perhaps it's the colours - lovely:)

working as a nurse i tell all my new-mums "your belly and all other body-parts needed 9 month to grow, they won't disappear within a few days - and mother nature knows why"
you look wonderful, don't worry!

Sannie said...

Just take your time, relax and pamper yourself and your baby and those pregnancy extras will disappear sooner or later. You look gorgeous mom!
