I've had in-depth pregnancy conversations with dozens of women, but I've yet to meet a single one who felt totally gorgeous in her third trimester. Swollen and uncomfortable? Absolutely. Chic and lovely? Not so much. But the following 20 celebs, all photographed during the last weeks of their pregnancies, prove that the third trimester can be beautiful. If Jennifer Lopez can look that good at Fashion Week two weeks before giving birth to twins, maybe there's hope for us all!
My swollen feet won't fit in a pair of wedges I wore yesterday. I've officially entered the final stretch of pregnancy. While heartburn, believing my stomach can't possibly stretch anymore and the sudden need to reorganize our flat, were indications — water retention, and feeling as though my water was going to break while walking last week have sealed the deal.
As mom to two, I've been preoccupied with my daughter starting kindergarten and getting my son potty trained for preschool. But, my limited shoe supply is a big signal that this is it! I'd better dust off some flip flops and start focusing on baby who will be here in a matter of weeks. From exhaustion to cankles, every mother has her indicator that the time for the kiddo to arrive nears — what was yours?
