Is it just me or can you actually notice your skinny jeans shrinking the moment you see this "+" on that funny little stick!? I swear the second I learned of my pregnancy, I laughed, I cried, I nearly puked - did I mention I had one too many vodkas that night? Don't judge, I had no idea I was actually with child at the time. And then it all set in. I mean, how would I dress this ever-changing body over the next 9 months? Misconception #1 -
My beach bod will be back in 9 months, just in time for summer. Yeaaaaaa right, it's more like 9 plus 9, and maybe another 9...if you're lucky.
Of course, here in Hollywood, things are a little different. It's often tough to decipher whether that hottie in BH is a tad bit bloated from the roughage in her La Scala chopped salad (dressing on the side, please) or if she's actually 8 months preggers. It's the ladder. Just maddening. But that's when the light bulb went off; I decided to be the best I could be during and after my pregnancy by living healthy, happy and comfortably chic. Those things, only possible with a little help from these friends, including the best maternity denim (I swore off all maternity clothes until I slipped on Adriano Goldschmied, H&M Tanks, the Evelyne Hermes Satchel (smartest...splurge...ever) and more. Here are a few things I can't live without.
