What to wear to a gender reveal

Hiya Blogland!!! I'm still alive and sort of kicking! ! It's been a while since I've posted. I have limited time I can sit at a computer comfortably. I've been using the time crafting or sewing. I've finally got the tablet picture and posting thing worked out so hopefully I'll be more active. I have been reading and keeping up with everyone's b logs even if I'm not commenting.

Brief update on the back injury. I'm still out on disability workers comp (over 6 months-yuck). I have severe sciatica and back pain due to a bulging disc, discal cyst, discal protrusion and sprained, inflamed spinal ligament. They gave me a spinal steroid epidural about 2 weeks ago to see if it would help the pain. Unfortunately so far nothing. They may possibly try another next month pending the results of the nerve c induction test they did this week. I am becoming more resigned to having back surgery. Anyway...enough whining!!! Lol

The BIG news that has me over the moon is we are going to be grandparents in early October. For Mother's Day Julie and Sean had Linda (Stan's mom) and I accompany them to their 20 week doctor's appointment. This visit would involve an ultrasound and the revealing of Baby Peanuts gender. Lauren the hustler also was able to join us as he had to drive me.

It was AMAZING!! Seeing the heart beating and the baby moving. It was snoozing on it's tummy with its little legs drawn up under it and the little butt up in the air. When the tech would press the wand down, a little arm would come up and swat it away!!

And it was pretty obvious to see that Baby Peanut is........

A BOY!!!!

We are thrilled!! I've already bought him a little camo onesie!! He's the size of a cola can and weighs 11 Oz.  I call him Baby Cletus!!

And a nice this is a style *snerk* blog this is what I was wearing:
The sweater is thrifted and old. I ordered the maxi online from Kmart. It's Jaclyn Smith- I love her stuff. I wanted a couple more maxis as almost all of mine from last year were too big. Thank heaven's for online shopping as my thrifting days are very limited.

I'm coming out of hiding and  linking up with all all of the lively ladies at VISIBLE MONDAY !!!

Everyone gave a fabulous week!!

Hiya back!

Sorry you 're still having pain. The Doctor got off lucky with his sciatica. You look lovely in that maxi, Jaclyn Smith, who would have thunk it.

Beth Waltz said...

The lime cardi adds energy to that splendid maxi print -- the perfect ensemble to wear to a gender reveal!

Please indulge in some feel-better treats such as essential oils or hand/foot massage.

Penny-Rose said...

Great colours in your outfit - the zesty lime and the maxi look great together. So sorry to read about your back it must be very painful. Hope you are taking good care of yourself.

Suzanne Carillo Style Files said...

So great to see you Tamera! And that maxi is so groovy gorgeous and perfect for a baby gender reveal : )

I do hope that all of your physical issues are dealt with soon. This has to be so frustrating, not to mention painful for you.

Thinking of you and sending along positive healing vibes.

I love to know the gender prior to the birth and how wonderful to learn that you've got a wee little laddie coming into your lives before you know it! I'm so sorry the epidural didn't work for the pain - this chapter of your life is testing your will and strength that's for sure. Two words "online shopping" - keep it up and now you have a little guy to buy for! I love the maxi you bought online! xoxoxox

Connie said...

Hi Tamera. I have been hanging with a lot of the same crowd as you so I just wanted to say HEEEEEY Girl. I hope you are feeling better. I have been dealing with my own funky back/pelvic issues so I KNOW. Feel better soon.
