My lovelies, as promised here comes a new pregnancy update. Time is flying and only 10 weeks are left til our little princess arrives. That´s why all the necessary preparations has to be made. We have said goodbye to our guest room and are turning it into a nursery. Some stuff we sold online via, some things we gave away for free and the others we threw away. It was not that easy to get rid of things that used to live in a 17 m² room. We also had to find space for the stuff we decided to keep. I have to confess that most of those things belong to me, because I used to store some of my clothes and shoes in the wardrobe of the guest room. As soon as the room was empty, Iwan got rid of the old parquet floor and craftsman laid the new parquet flooring. After that Iwan painted the room in light grey, since the parquet floor is grey, beige and white colored. We have already ordered the furniture in baroque style for the baby room and we can´t wait for those to be delivered, so that the nursery can be accomplished. The decoration is probably going to be pink, rose and gold.  I´ll show you the room in October, so stay tuned 🙂 Preparing the nursery is so much fun for Iwan and me, so of course we want to do a blogpost about it.

I only have to work one and a half week from now on and then I am on maternity leave.  Yeah! Although I decided to work during my pregnancy (because of the complications I had in my first pregnancy I had the possibility to stay at home but still be paid by the state- Austrians laws are great, right?) I have to confess that working in the third trimester is hard for me. I am so exhausted all the time and the only thing I can think about is my baby.

September is going to be a great month filled with many great events. Only one day after my maternity leave starts, Iwan and I are celebrating our 9th anniversary. We have not planned anything yet, but we will this upcoming week. It´s hopefully our last anniversary without kids, so we want to do something romantic. On the following days we are joining prenatal classes. We are doing this together as a couple and I am very happy that we are going to experience this together. At the end of September we are going to have a baby shower. I am so excited and you see, our September is all about our little baby girl.

By the way, how do you like my new blue dress? It´s the one I announced in this blogpost. Actually it´s not maternity wear, but it´s two size bigger, so that it fits. Of course I had to wear my brand new statement necklace too, that I showed you in the previous blogpost. Both pieces are from Mango.
