Oh, bliss! Nine months of gestational glory. You’re thrilled — though maybe not about wardrobe issues and bodily discomforts. These items should help make your pregnancy blooming marvelous.
When you look good, you feel good (okay, “not horrendous”). Here’s your new uniform: Paige Premium Denim’s Westborne Underbelly Jeans (no elastic panels means you’ll wear them as you regain your shape), a Bread and Butter pleated bubble dress (Capucine, 20 Harrison Street; 212-219-4030), and a cashmere/silk cardi-wrap (handy for nursing). You’ll look fresh out the bump box.
Stock up on basics like Estella’s front-snap receiving gowns and open-top jersey caps, which are ecofriendly, made of a silky milk protein fabric, and ideal for sensitive newborns. Practice swaddling with Aden+Anais muslin wraps. Add Humpty Who? Crib Sheets for the Nursery for Clueless Moms and Dads and you’ll be belting the kid canon in no time.
That’s hitting the mother lode.
