Painting Your Pregnant Belly For Halloween!

A pregnant belly makes the perfect canvas for a unique Halloween costume!

There aren't a lot of cool and hip ready made maternity costumes out there. But luckily, your belly is just screaming to be adorned! If you find yourself very pregnant and in need of a quick Halloween costume, simply buy some face paints and get creative.
Some basic ideas to paint on your belly are a pumpkin, a basketball, a bowling ball, a beach ball, the sun, a fishbowl, a full moon, etc. Or you can get creative and paint a character's face, such as Jack Skellington's from "A Nightmare Before Christmas", or a world globe, or even a crystal ball with a baby floating inside. The options are infinite. Wear a button down shirt opened at the belly or a sports bra to best show off your artwork.

Hip Celebrity Mom, Gwyneth Paltrow, Pregnant Again?

This celebrity pregnancy rumor just might be true!

Hip couple Gwyneth Paltrow and husband, Chris Martin, may be expecting their second child. They already have a 16 month old daughter named Apple.

The rumors are flying after Gwyneth's mom, Blythe Danner, attended an awards ceremony in Hollywood. She apparently blurted out "Yes, I am (going to be a grandmother again.) Well, I think so. Oh, well I have not checked lately."

This celebrity baby rumor could very well be the real thing. We will keep you posted!

Uplifting Nursery Decor!

Create an enchanting nursery for your baby!

Before bringing the baby home, put that nesting instinct to good use. Creating a beautiful nursery can uplift your spirits as well as provide a fantastic space for your child to grow. You don't have to be an artist or an interior decorator to achieve great results. A splash of color and some fun artwork can really create a beautiful space. No more plain white walls! Paint the walls and even the ceiling. Choose a couple of colors from the crib bedding and get to work.

You will be spending a lot of time with your new baby in the nursery and the space should be pleasing for both of you!

How Do Celebrities Lose Their Pregnancy Weight So Quickly!

Don't you just hate them! Celebrities seem to regain their figures in a matter of weeks!

I came across an article showing a picture of Britney Spears looking much thinner already. Heidi Klum, Denise Richards, Victoria Beckham, Kate Hudson, and many more, all seem to regain their shape immediately after giving birth. They are posing in lingerie while normal women are still wearing their maternity jeans!

How do they do it? Britney is rumored to be on the zone diet and other celebrities claim good old diet and exercise. Seems simple enough, but I'm sure it is a lot easier with a nutritionist, a personal trainer, perhaps a good plastic surgeon and a nanny to watch the baby while you workout for over an hour a day!

It took me a full year to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I imagine that is much more of a realistic time frame! Don't give up, but don't pressure yourself too hard either!

Celebrity Maternity Clothing Lines?

Where are the hip maternity clothing lines from Liv Tyler and Britney Spears?

When Liv Tyler was pregnant she wanted to start her own line of maternity clothes for the "modern urban girl". She complained that she couldn't find any cool maternity clothes. That was last year. I'm guessing it probably won't happen.

When Britney Spears was pregnant she wanted to start her own line of "modern and funky" maternity clothes. I haven't heard anything else about it.

It would have been interesting to see what their maternity clothes would have looked like.

Will Katie Holmes Have A "Silent Birth"?

Will Tom Cruise talk Katie Holmes into the Scientology method of labor?
Is she crazy enough to actually try this?

The "silent birth" is what Scientology suggests instead of screaming through labor pains. Only low moaning is considered acceptable. Hubbard, in his book Dianetics, wrote "Maintain silence in the presence of birth to save the sanity of the mother and the child and safeguard the home to which they will go."

John Travolta and his wife, Kelly Preston, used this method for the birth of their daughter Ella in 2002. John Travolta explained that the quiet is to ensure "there's nothing recorded in the child's mind that shouldn't be there while there's pain going on. Any people saying any kind of negative verbiage may adversely affect the baby later on."

Scientology also suggests remaining quiet for a week after the birth so that the baby is "trauma free".

Hip maternity clothes are easier than ever to find!

Looking for potential vendors for my on-line store, I've found so many stylish options in maternity clothes. Maternity designs have come such a long way. You can find everything from hip designer jeans to sexy maternity halter tops. I've come across rock-n-roll maternity tops, tube dresses, clever t-shirts and maternity lingerie that is actually sexy!

It will be exciting to be pregnant again and get to wear all these hip and trendy maternity clothes.

Angelina Jolie Rumored to be Pregnant!

Is Angelina Jolie pregnant?

In Touch magazine recently showed photos of Angelina Jolie in a grey dress sporting a bump! Of course, now rumors are flying that she is pregnant. It could be she was just bloated or perhaps the photos were doctored.

If Angelina and Brad Pitt did have a baby together, it would surely be one gorgeous kid!

Nicolas Cage, 41, and his wife, Alice Kim, had a baby boy on Monday, October 3rd.

Nicolas Cage is the star of two of my favorite movies, Wild at Heart and Raising Arizona. He raised eyebrows when he married his wife, Alice Kim, in 2004 due to her only being 20 years old at the time. According to Cage's publicist, Annett Wolf, the baby and her mother are healthy and happy. The baby was named Kal-el Coppola Cage. Nicolas Cage also has another son from a previous relationship.

Congratulations Nicolas and Alice!
