Though you’re ecstatic to meet your soon-to-be mischief maker, lately you’ve found yourself yearning for the pre-preggers days of glowing skin, skinny jeans, and scandalous lingerie. Time to prove you’re still one hot mama.
Treat your stressed-out belly to the Mom-2-Be Baby Bump Facial at the spa at Willows Lodge (14580 Northeast 145th Street, Woodinville; 425-424-3900). A gentle cleansing is followed by a firming mask. Things are finished off with the Stretch Mark Restructuring treatment to hydrate skin and ward off blemishes.

A Picture’s Worth a Thousand Words
Now that you’re primped, primed, and ready to go, capture your womanly bod in all its bump-tastic glory during a session with local photographer Sara Tro (206-619-0661).
You sexy thing, you.
