Just Because You’re Pregnant Doesn’t Mean You Have To Dread Summer

I want to share with you a fantastic article that was passed along to me. Enjoy!!

"Just Because You’re Pregnant Doesn’t Mean You Have To Dread Summer"
Written By: Elise Rosemarin & Marta Abrams of Moody Mamas, Inc.

The summer weather is here! It’s getting hot, the humidity is soaring and you’re pregnant. You can’t do anything without breaking a sweat, let alone having to face the 80 degree weather. Right now, the only activity that sounds appealing is staying inside an air conditioned house watching Lifetime movies and eating bon bons. But don’t sweat it (literally), we’ve got the deets on how to keep you cool this summer!

Although your incredible hair might be turning heads, there’s no denying that on a hot day it can make you feel about twenty degrees warmer. The solution? A sleek ponytail paired with a chic headband. No, headbands aren’t just for little girls anymore. Lately, you can find trendy, embellished hair accessories everywhere-from CVS to J.Crew. So go ahead, make the investment and feel the breeze.

Dresses are the greatest invention for women, second to Brad Pitt, and every pregnant woman—scratch that—every woman needs a closet full of them for the summer. Right now, we’re loving the Fierce Mamas summer collection at created by the insanely fabulous designer, Christian Siriano. Going to a summer wedding? Try the chiffon printed sweetheart dress. Have a hot date? The charmeuse dress will have him saying "ooh la la la". This collection has tons of great pieces that will suit every occasion and will make you look like a Fierce Mama. Wish there were more Brad Pitts to go around...sigh.

There’s nothing more fantastic then spending the perfect summer day lounging at the beach. Thanks to Nicole Richie, gone are the days when pregnant women are forced to hide under a shady tree sporting a Grandma-style one piece. Your bump is a fabulous accessory, so flaunt it in an adorable tankini or a sexy one piece if you are looking to cover some flesh. Now, grab a virgin pina colada and head to the beach, because it’s too darn hot to do anything else!

I loved being pregnant last summer! I wore a dress every single day, threw on a maternity tankini and hit the pool.

I was one of the only women who wasn't worried about how fat they looked in their bathing suit! :)

What? Christian created a maternity line? That's *almost* enough reason for me to have another baby. ;)

I wrote a post like this last summer! I wrote a list about all the different reasons why I love being pregnant in the summer.

I just had my baby on May 30, so I didn't really have a chance to wear any cute summer maternity clothes.

Welcome to SITS! It's great to have you in the SITStahood!
