If you see a spring in a pregnant woman's step these days, it's probably because she's eagerly anticipating shedding her Winter layers for Spring's sweet styles. The warmer weather has us dreaming of sherbert hues, floral prints, and cropped pants to take us into Summer. And lucky for us, the season's hottest trends easily translate into maternity. No pregnancy wardrobe is complete without a pair of jeans or two, so we've rounded up eight pairs of jeans that will keep the mama-to-be on trend this season.
To say that Tiffany Glenn Burress, the wife of NFL star Plaxico Burress, has a full plate is a serious understatement. She's a partner at a New Jersey law firm, a mother of two, and actively involved in a variety of philanthropic causes. But when she was pregnant and discovered just how hard it is to find comfortable, fashion-forward maternity clothing, she took matters into her own hands.
Enter Joiful Maternity, Burress's new line of "comfortable, versatile, and effortlessly stylish" maternity apparel. Most every piece in the collection is made from modal and charmeuse fabrics and is designed to flatter every body, complement every skin tone, and work for a wide range of occasions. Check out some highlights from Joiful's debut here!

I spy a growing baby bump on the Duchess of Cambridge this morning! Kate Middleton returned to her royal duties making an official visit to Hope House in London earlier today, and for the first time we caught a glimpse of the royal baby bump. Wearing a leopard-print Max Mara wrap dress with a gray camisole beneath it, pregnant Kate showed that she's already caught on to one expectant mama favorite — the wrap dress. A dress that grows with you through your pregnancy (and one that can be adjusted throughout the day), the wrap dress is a staple in many moms-to-be's wardrobes. Choosing a print version of the style, Kate proved that she's not going to be shy about showing off her belly in the coming months.
Love her look? We do too, so we've rounded up eight of our favorite print wrap dresses — both maternity and nonmaternity — to take you through your pregnancy. Check them out!

Expectant mamas did a lil jump for joy when Jessica Simpson debuted her collection of maternity clothes at Destination Maternity last Fall. The collection, which arrived shortly after the Fashion Star mentor gave birth to baby Maxwell, appears to have just been the beginning of a maternity empire. Now expanding to more than 800 Destination Maternity, Motherhood Maternity, and Macy's stores, Jessica's upped the ante this Spring with a collection full of long knit jersey dresses, flowing tops over skinny pants, and plenty of lace, florals, and neon accents we're sure we'll see Jessica wearing as her second pregnancy progresses this year.

Every mom-to-be has the same question. It's not how to survive childbirth, or what to do with a newborn — it's how on Earth to get dressed in the morning with a burgeoning baby bump! As it turns out, there's not a single foolproof trick to the trade, but instead a number of styling secrets that you can incorporate into your maternity wardrobe.

It may just be one of the most iconic dresses of all time — the royal-blue Issa London wrap dress Kate Middleton wore in her engagement pictures back in 2010. The simple yet sophisticated silk jersey dress instantly sold out within hours in London and then again when a second round was available on Net-a-Porter.
But now that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting, along with other women around the world, Issa's founder and designer, Daniella Issa Helayel, is offering up a maternity version of the timeless dress, which is perfect for work, baby showers, or a prebaby night on the town. The Issa Classic Silk Wrap Dress in Indigo ($824) actually doesn't wrap at all, but zips up the side and ties in the back to accommodate growing bellies.
The "Kate" dress isn't the only one Issa is designing for moms-to-be. Since the line's debut, the designer has been taking some of her most popular styles and prints and converting them into investment maternity pieces that flatter bumps of all shapes and sizes.
