Monday wishlist

To help combat that "Monday feeling"  I've made a list of things I'm lusting after this week:

1.Faux leather asymmetric t-shirt - Romwe - £28.70
2. Dreamy Ring - Cheap Monday - £5
3.Polley shoe - Dr Martens - £90
4. Flared Dress - Zara - £22.99
5.PVC Skater midi skirt - Missguided - £19.99
6. Minnie Dress - Monki - £35
7. PVC and fur backpack - MotelRocks - £40

I've become slightly obsessed with PVC and faux fur/leather recently. I think it's because pre-pregnancy I would have avoided them for fear of accidentally showing off lumps and bumps whereas now that's exactly what I do what to show off! Also, they're kind of tacky and I LOVE IT. I've seen some people style the PVC midi skirt really well over the last couple of weeks and that's also made me want one of my own. I think it will be next payday/Thursday's purchase :) The two dresses I have picked are just divine! The first has all the simple elegance I've come to expect from Zara and I think it would see me through till summer as it is perfect for layering over my mesh top, a turtle neck or a plain white t-shirt while its cold and then when the warmer weather hits, it can fly solo with some chunky platform sandals and cute socks. The Minnie dress from Monki also reminds me of this great crochet dress I had from American Apparel last year which I wore to death during the summer except it has a handy slip underneath! I love the sportswear feel it has and everyone needs a t-shirt dress in their wardrobe. Simple, fast and easy!

So I was also meant to have my 20 week scan today at the hospital. For those of you who are completely baby un-aware, as I was, the 20 week scan is when you find out if you're having a boy or a girl.
So me and JS trotted up to the hospital on his lunch break to go get scanned and see our little bean again just to find out that due to my horrific pregnancy brain (that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it) I had got the dates wrong and we were originally booked in to go on the 9th. Thus resulting in tears and me apologising profusely to JS and being mad at myself ect ect.
There is a happy ending however!  The amazing nurse managed to re-book me to go get my scan on Wednesday, so we only have to wait two more days. Which, will give me two more days to try and convince JS to let us find out who exactly is in there.

20 week update:
My tummy measures: 92.5 cm / 36.5"
My waist is: 83 cm / 32.5"
Craving chocolate and trying not to give in. Heartburn has been a devil this week. Only a few headaches. Back to work tomorrow!
