Celebrity moms-to-be, Olivia Wilde, Kerry Washington and Elsa Pataky looked flawless at Sunday’s Academy Awards!
Olivia was the epitome of chic in a sleek and sophisticated black Valentino gown. The high neckline was perfectly complimented by her soft, romantic up-do and white drop earrings.
Kerry was gorgeous in a strapless, lavender Jason Wu dress. The draping and silhouette of the gown perfectly showed off her shape. With delicate jewelry, a wavy half up-do and an on-trend crimson lip, she certainly made a fashion statement.
Elsa Pataky was stunning in a beaded teal gown by Elie Saab. The sparkling frock enhanced her pregnancy glow and the drop waistline showed off her bump beautifully.

Your third trimester is often spent making final preparations for baby: nurseries are decorated, supplies are purchased and baby showers are celebrated. In addition to these nesting rituals, it’s also time to think about what to pack in your hospital bag. Since labor can be unpredictable in terms of timing, packing a bag before your due date will help you feel prepared and ready for when baby decides to make his or her grand entrance into the world. We’ve paired our recommendations with tips from The Bump to create a simple-to-follow checklist:
- 2-3 pairs of warm, non-skid socks or slippers for walking the halls before and after labor:
We recommend our Bump in the Night Slippers which are warm, cozy and easy to put on and take off as needed.
We like our Bump In The Night™ Empire Waist Nursing Robe which comes as a set including a comfortable, matching nursing nightgown.
- 2 maternity bras without underwire:
We recommend our Seamless Lift Up Nursing Bra: the material is soft, comfortable and easy to adjust.Try our Jessica Simpson Seamless Clip Down Nursing Bra which easily clips down for feeding.
- A few pairs of maternity underwear:
We like our 3 Pack of Maternity Fold Over Panties: adjustable to your liking, you can wear them over your bump or folded down for added comfort.
- Lip balm (hospitals are very dry) and moisturizer:
Eos Smooth Sphere Lip Balm comes in a 3 pack and is made with nourishing shea butter, vitamin e and jojoba oil. As an added bonus, it’s also gluten-free, paraben-free, petrolatum-free and phthalate-free. Body Boost’s Fragrance Free Stretch Mark Butter moisturizes to renew stretched skin and also relieves itchiness from dry conditions.
- A change of clothes for the trip home:
Comfort is key! Layer up in a super-soft, Jersey Knit Maternity Hoodie paired with a relaxed fit maternity tank top. Fold Over Jersey Knit Yoga Pants are soft and adjustable for a fit that feels best.
