Essentials for the Baby Waiting Game

essentials for the baby waiting game

Well folks…I have been on Maternity leave for a week now and have officially started the “Baby Waiting Game”. My days are full of extra sleep since night-time sleep is touch and go, pampering, reading, lounging around, staying active,  and a few bouts of shopping both in store and online. These are a few of my favorite things as I anxiously await baby boy.

For all you “mommy-to-bes” out there, when it comes to starting maternity leave, there is hope in staying comfy, stylish and glamorous. I believe it is essential so you don’t get cabin fever or start feeling crummy about yourself. I like to mix my days with doing some baby prep errands, a little physical activity, a bit of lounging, eating, sleeping, shopping, and lots of water….and not feel bad or guilty about any of it =)

Put on some comfy cute pjs, a good robe, light a fragrant candle, prop your feet up and pop open a good read, or finish writing those thank you notes from the baby shower….this is your time…enjoy it!! Baby will be here soon!!

1. Eberjey jersey robe – Feel fabulous while walking around the house
2. Kate Spade white pearl necklace – dress up any outfit when you step out for errands or wear it around the house
3. Target Tech accessory for the ipad – Give your ipad a facelift and make it more fun when you do your e-shopping
4. Topshop cream nail polish – Because everyone needs a classic manicure. The bottle is too cute!
