Love your bump, but bummed about a diminished New Year’s? Here are our hacks to keep your party on, Mama!
A Smooth Pregnancy
Being pregnant certainly doesn’t end the grown up fun, and just might be seriously amp up the action. No matter how maintained you are in non-bump life, at a certain point shaving becomes a feat reserved for yogi and can even be downright…dangerous. The pros at OC Waxing have you covered. Or uncovered. Many are moms, and all have been trained in positioning for pregnancy waxes. (Keep this in mind pre-delivery, vastly superior to seeing that nurse come at you with a cheap pink disposable razor!)
Kids Night Out
Getting childcare on the biggest party night of the year can be a challenge, but don’t blow off trying since you can’t indulge in all the festivities. Next year will be even more difficult with a new baby in the mix. Pair up with pals and offer to host next year’s sleepover, bribe their sitter to slip in an extra child or two, or check out an On Demand sitter service like Helpr.
Be Mixed Mocktails
These upscale mixers not only make incredible drinks, but keep teatotalling tolerable. We adore the Cucumber Mint, but if you have first trimester tummy troubles, opt for Ginger Lime for a natural nausea nixer. (If you are keeping mum about becoming one, add a splash of sparkling water and fruit garnish and no one will be the wiser.)
LBD = Little Bump Dress
Just because you are (literally) babe-in-tow doesn’t mean you can’t dazzle. We’re in love with these little black dresses by Jo Maman Bebe. The flattering cuts, sparkles and lace details keep you so cute they’ll make your non-prego pals jealous.
