Maternitywear. Christ, it’s awful.

As an ancient hippy, fortunately I own many items that will see me through most of this pregnancy. Think caftans, big shirts, and vintage ponchos.

This is how we celebrate an unexpected pregnancy

Celebrate an unexpected pregnancy

When we let the pregnancy be known, I celebrated by buying this dress via ebay. It ticks my ethical boxes: I will attempt to buy only second-hand, or ethically-produced clothing, for this confinement.

It should last me the pregnancy and not make me want to burn it afterwards. These are good things.
