Touching the tummy really really irritates me. So if you ever meet me, keep your hands to yourself! I have never done that to any pregnant woman. If I have, it was because some super happy mommy grabbed my hand and shrieked, "It's moving!" to my absolute horror. Nope, I have never found pregnancy beautiful or romantic so I'm pretty weepy these days. I think the reason is every pregnant woman I've seen when I was growing up seem to have made it their mission to look as unglamorous and unsexy and undesirable as possible. Thank goodness for Nicole Richie, Heidi Klum, Gwen Stefani, Halle Berry and other celebrities who made pregnancy look like a red-carpet affair! Locally, I found Daphne Osena Paez to have been really beautiful when she was pregnant. Pregnant women, take note: You can look fab even when preggy!So now that I'm the pregnant one, I am making sure I look damn gorgeous!
Yes, I am still wearing 4-inch heels. And I don't want any of you telling me it's a bad thing for a pregnant woman to do. I have noticed with great interest that only ugly, unfashionable women are the ones who tell me to wear flats and tent dresses and to not wear makeup. So if you dare leave a comment telling me I should retire the heels, well, I know what you look like!
clearance savings, then you won't have to spend a fortune on those ugly clothes! And accessorize, accessorize, accessorize! I'm wearing enamel bangles with my Vita Fede leather-and-gold bangles. In my hair, my feather headband. Everyone said I looked pretty, and when you're pregnant, that's music to your ears!
P.S. Don't worry about the Coke, my OBG said it's okay to have one caffeine drink a day. It's usually tea but this one time, I had to have a Coke so don't crucify me.
