About a month ago I went in for my check up with my doctor, and I thought everything would go normal as it had been prior. But in this appointment, I got the news that our baby girl was still in the breech position at 36 weeks and that I would need to be scheduled for a c-section. Not ever having a surgery in my life, this hit me like a ton of bricks. I instantly entered a state of anxiety as they explained everything to me and the reasons why I would need a c-section. The last few days became the biggest emotional roller coaster for me.
Everything had been going just as planned, we had hit every milestone just right. We had overcome a big obstacle in January and things seemed to be going great. The baby was doing great, and I was already making my birth plan, and what I would want that day to look like. Of course, I know not everything goes as planned. Being at the very end and having someone tell you that you can’t do things the natural way. It just broke my heart.
Dealing with Anxiety and Planning for my C-Section
Everyone kept telling me. “Don’t worry, you will be fine, people have c-sections all the time.” But for some reason, it’s just something that even today, it makes me a little sad. It’s not just the sadness, it’s the fear, anxiety, and just a lot of emotions thrown together. This last month has been filled with a lot of emotional moments for me. Having to go in for weekly check-ups and being told the same thing, that my baby is still breech.
When I got the date of my c-section my planning became very different. I got my date last week and I packed my bag and got all the last-minute things completed. After that it was just a matter of keeping myself busy to not think about the details. Since getting my date, I have been prepping, cleaning, planning, working crazy hours. The day has finally arrived, and we will be meeting our little girl today. June 12, 2018.

My Last Maternity Look with Who What Wear
Between all the emotional moments, and craziness, and finishing up work. I was able to shoot my very last maternity style look. I have to say that Who What Wear has been one of my favorite brands to wear throughout my pregnancy. It’s one of the brands that has kept my style colorful and fun the whole way through. Color was a must during my pregnancy and vey uplifting on down days. Granted, I wore this brand a lot before and I will continue to wear it afterwards.
This blue cotton ruffle dress is one of my favorite summer styles. The hi-low hemline with the ruffle detail in a cotton finish is the perfect look for Summer. I was able to take the sleeves up a bit, and it accommodated my baby bump perfectly. I paired this summer maxi dress with one of my favorite vintage straw bags, and a simple pair of summer sandals. My favorite part of this outfit is this polka-dot silk scarf from Ann Taylor. I tied it up in a knot and paired it with a fun pair of heart-shaped sunnies and of course added on some of my favorite arm candy from local jewelry designer Nikki E. Designs.
Although my pregnancy journey is coming to an end, I’m so excited to keep sharing my personal style posts with you along with all the joys of motherhood. Thank you all for following along and stay tuned for more posts as soon as I get adjusted to my new routine.

XOXO, Happy Girl
