Thank you ladies, for all the congratulatory messages. I was so touched by how happy you all were by my little baby news. Now, about the baby, we don’t know what we are having yet. I am convinced it’s a girl. Mr. Dibs on the other hand is convinced its a boy because of my absolute conviction that there is a little mini-me growing inside me. His theory being tha mothers always get the gender wrong. I asked him to bet £20 on that, and got a big NO in return…..the little coward!!!
I don’t mind the gender of the baby to be honest. All I am praying for is a healthy baby, so I shall be grateful for either boy or girl. That said, I am still 100% convinced its a girl. I don’t know why I’m so certain of this. One possibility could be the fact that I have been dreaming of sewing little pillow case dresses for a baby girl. I don’t think a mini Mr.Dibs will be amused by mummy’s pillow case dresses. I’ve also realised there are many more patterns out there for little girls compared to boys.
While we are on the subject of patterns……..when I found out I was preggers, one of the things I started doing was looking for nice maternity patterns. I’ve been looking for too long now I think. Unfortunately though, I can’t seem to find any pattern that will make me go “WOW”. There’s alot of stuff on the blogoshphere for diy maternity wear but most often they are for casual wear, whch is perfect if you have the luxury of staying at home. I don’t stop working till February, so I have to find patterns that will tide me professionally till I can relax for a whole week in my yoga pants.
I’ve put aside a few patterns which I like, and which I think will do me some good. First up, Vogue 1179. Seeing Eugenia and Karen raving about this pattern made me cave in. I ordered it this morning, so it should be here soon.
