I am NOT pregnant. Repeat, I am NOT pregnant nor do I ever plan to be so again. One and one and DONE! But I was pregnant last year over the holidays so I can emphasize first-hand the importance of pampering pregnant women, especially over the hectic and often harried holidays.
It was on my holiday gift guide for expectant moms last year and again J Brand maternity jeans are an absolute must-have in any fashionista mama-to-be’s closet. If you see photos of any expected celeb who’s in jeans, my money’s on them rocking this brand!
So excited that my favorite stationary designer now has an exclusive line with Destination Maternity! The Bonnie Marcus Maternity t-shirts are fabulous!
They say pregnant woman glow. I definitely did not feel my prettiest during my pregnancies and would welcome any pick-me-ups in the beauty department. A blow out at Dry Bar could give me a whole new lease on life, even when I couldn’t see down to my toes!
There are so many no nos when it comes to what you can eat. 9 whole months without alcohol and sushi. Drastically cut-down (if not completely avoid) coffee, David’s Tea has a wonderful assortment of caffeine free teas, including spiced fig and crème brulee, which makes you feel like you are missing out on anything decadent and delicious.
For better or for worse, pregnancy is a time that’s worth remembering. Mamentos B.C. Before Child Pregnancy Journal ($15) allows mom-to-be to record her memories with sweet and funny prompts.
Just think, next year you’ll be celebrating the holidays with the best gift ever —a brand new person! And there will be endless gifts will be for that special little one!
