Pregnancy glam? Preggo Chic? Is there such a thing? If you would have asked me a year ago, as I entered my ninth month of pregnancy, the answer would have surely been “no”. Miroslova Duma preggers fashion has been nothing but a pipe dream. However, with the help of career fashion gal, Amy Tara Koch (a trend reporter for NBC, contributor to Town & Country, American Way, The New York Times, The Huffington Post, The New York Observer and Daily Candy, and style expert for iVillage, Inc.; Vogue and Twitter Moms.), I am starting to believe in the impossible.
Koch’s new book, Bump It Up, is chock full of preggers style tips for all stages of pregnancy, not to mention, it oozes wit and charm. Maybe the third time really will be a fashion charm for this mother of two…..or maybe I’ll head to the gym and try to sweat myself free of the last few pregnancy pounds, while enjoying this polka-dotted, fun, fashionable read, of course.

DELIV-A-CHIC: Ready, Get Set, Wax!
I don’t care what your friends have told you. The final month of pregnancy is not for counting contractions over a tray of Fannie May Mint Meltaways. Month nine is all about preparation to look thoroughly divine in the delivery room. With the proliferation of Skype You Tube, Facebook, all the world’s a stage. Even the birthing room. Do you want your gorgeous new baby overshadowed by your talons, unibrow and frizzy tresses? Delivery pics will be posted moments after the cord is cut and sent to your on line address book. Then, mom, grandma, sister and in laws will get to work forwarding images to your friends and colleagues until every last acquaintance until your sleepover camp bunkmate (whose bed you short sheeted) ends the cycle. Knowing that your image will live in perpetuity on the world wide web, a month nine rendevous with your glam squad about is essential.
