It's our birthday! Milan Maternity is one year old! We really wanted to do something fun and send everyone that places an order on our birthday cake and ice cream, but that could get pretty darn messy. So...on Tuesday, July 20th, the first 25 people to place an order of at least $50, will get a Cold Stone Creamery gift card included with their order. Plus, get 15% off your entire order with coupon code "BIRTHDAY", valid Tuesday only. Sounds pretty sweet to me! New clothes at a discount AND ice cream. Now you'll just need a jar of pickles to make it all complete.

So...I'm a huge fan of Project Runway. Love that show. So, naturally, I was really excited to hear that Heidi Klum was launching a maternity line of clothing exclusively for Pea in the Pod and Motherhood. Her line was available mid-February of this year, and I have to say, I was a little disappointed. I expected a little bit more from Heidi. There weren't any pieces that I absolutely loved, and this one...was pretty much just funny.
Here we have a super sexy maternity unitard that I'm sure will flatter and accentuate your pregnant body in all the right places; the ankles, (or should I say cankles), the thighs, butt, and hips. And I won't even go into how easy it would be to get it on and off, especially when you have to pee every 20 minutes. And in public? You'd have to get naked just to go to the bathroom. I don't know about you, but I think I'll pass on this one. But if you've got a body like Victoria Beckham, (who could probably pull it off), you can snag this one on sale for only $22.99, down from $95. You can view both Heidi's Pea in the Pod Lavish and Motherhood Loved collection lines here. Do you love it as much as I do?

I recently came across a blog that I now LOVE, and I just had to share. A Daily Dose of Dieting offers daily tips and information on dieting, healthy recipes, exercise, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle and weight. And for those of us that take "eating for two" during pregnancy quite literally during pregnancy, (heck, now that I look back on it, I think I was eating for four or five), A Daily Dose of Dieting is a great place for inspiration and motivation to get you back on track, and get your body back!
The author, Ashley just had a baby and is posting about her weight loss journey as she loses the baby weight while breastfeeding. Be sure to look through her past maternity posts for a wealth of information about maintaining a healthy lifestyle and exercise throughout pregnancy.
