A woman in my company is extremely pregnant. I think her due date is this week. While she is enormous and says she feels uncomfortable I can't help but look at her and think "Dang, she looks so cute!"
Pregnancy is downright fashionable. No more muumuus or tents. Maternity fashion guru Liz Lange has a line at Target now. The Gap and Old Navy have great stuff in their maternity section. Add these cute clothes to that "pregnancy glow" and you're lookin' good. Plus the prenatal vitamins are great for your hair and nails.
Too bad the post-baby period isn't as flattering. Suddenly you've got 10-15 pounds to lose, are wearing a scary heavy-duty nursing bra and are most likely covered in spit-up. Your maternity clothes don't really fit and neither do your regular ones. I just realized I've never told a new mom "You look so cute!"
Maybe Liz Lange should start thinking of a Post-Maternity line.....adorable drool-resistant peasant tops, miracle bootcut pants that will grow or shrink, depending on your current weight. And for pete's sake - someone please work on those nursing bras! There's a market for this, I just know it.......
