Tis the Season

Everywhere I look lately, I see pregnant women! Seriously, it looks like it was a very busy winter in Washington!

And while motherhood is wonderful, blah blah blah, I cannot imagine being stuck in this insane heat carrying a whole extra person, nevermind the increased blood volume, the 1 lb placenta, amniotic fluid, etc. (I had a friend who would break out her weight gain during pregnancy just about every week. The numbers stuck.)

So, I would like to give a big shoutout to all the mommies-soon-to-be and wanted to compliment one in particular that I saw on the elevator.

While this woman looked as though she was about to burst forth with a wee one between floors two and three, she also looked cool, calm, and comfortable in her blue madras tank dress and chic flat gladiator sandals.

Kudos to you, mystery chic pregnant woman! I hope you give birth soon...at least the hospital will be super air conditioned.

I feel like all of my friends are pregnant. What's going on?!

Seems like every summer there's a baby boom in DC! I had my 1st baby last July and towards the end there were always 3 or 4 pregnant ladies scrambling to find seats on the Metro right along with me. It's a big challenge staying stylish when you're huge & overheated. I was just grateful my maternity leave started right before the torrential downpours hit DC last June and flooded the Metro stations!

I have a friend who will be having twins in a month or so. So double all of those weight facts!
