“Ice cream is exquisite – what a pity it isn’t illegal.” – Voltaire
Well then lock us up, because we are all about the cold, creamy craving! Everyone thinks Valentine’s Day is strictly for chocolate, and we don’t disagree, but we also would like to bring attention to another sweet treat: ice cream! So many flavors, so many favorites, so many ways to eat it. Our love song can go on and on, but we want you to tell us your pregnancy cravings. Head on over to our Instagram and use #shareyourcravings – we want to know what creamy, crunchy, salty or sweet you MUST eat! And, keep on reading to see what our expecting mamas here have a hunger for. Happy Valentine’s Day! Love, Motherhood.

The dark days of winter give east coasters major summer envy, while the west coasters reach for the beach and the middle of the country craves the coastal breeze. If you can’t set sail on the sea, test the waters with these mid-winter nods to nautical!
Maternity clothing already breaks bounds when it comes to flattering your shape, because most styles are made to accentuate the bump. So remember when shopping, stripes are slimming. We repeat: stripes are slimming. So many mamas shy away from the stripe, especially horizontal ones, but this sweater is lightweight, still warm enough for the chill in the air, and cute as a button — literally, because it is ribbed with buttons.
In the warmer months we preach the LWD, aka the Little White Dress, as the fresher take on the LBD. What about in the cooler months? Shake it up with a new LBD — Little Blue Dress. The deep tone of navy is of course flattering, much in the way black is; it’s still sophisticated, yet playful and versatile for work to weekend wear. This maternity dress features pretty pleats and a flowing fit.
To stay in the blue family, we top off our list, well… with a top. Navy is a neutral that plays well with others blues, so this flutter sleeve maternity blouse looks amazing with jeans, as well as more office-ready pants. Not into ruffles? Don’t feel blue… (sorry for the pun!) we have more navy maternity blouses you’ll love.
In a boat, on land, at work- these are the new waves of nautical maternity looks.

What does Valentine’s Day mean to you? At some point it may have meant dinner out, dancing and maybe a glass of wine. So what about this year? You’re pregnant, which means it’s alright to use that beautiful bump as a reason to order in, snuggle on the couch and sip a little ginger tea. It isn’t about sacrificing; it’s about indulging.
What is there not to love about maternity sleepwear that is made extra soft for your hardworking body? In shades of blush, rose and cranberry, it’s like making a cocktail of pretty pregnancy pajamas. Ask for a massage and use belly balms, oils and butters carefully crafted from expecting skincare. It is all about giving the bump a little extra TLC.
There is so much to love, so finishing the night off with glowing skin, a smooch from your honey and the feeling of your baby growing inside of you is the icing on the cake. Or… end the night with cake. Hey, you’re eating for two! Happy cravings and Happy Valentine’s Day. With Hugs & Kisses – Motherhood

Those who say nothing is perfect have never seen these ankle maternity pants. Why, you ask? Let us tell you the reasons.
- They are a skinny silhouette, which elongates the legs for a slimming effect, while still highlighting that beautiful bump.
- They are made with super stretch fabric, providing maternity style for all throughout your pregnancy and right into motherhood.
- They are extremely versatile, going from desk to dinner, flats to heels and brunch to breakfast. (Wait, what? You can sleep in them too? Well, maybe not… but they are comfy enough!)
- They come in a myriad of colors… yes, a myriad!
- They are one of our top-rated, mamas-in-the-making approved pants.
So, when we say show a little ankle, we mean every day. Sized from extra-small through extra-large, we know you will find your size. We don’t need to tell you all the places you’ll wear them or all the ways to style them… unless you want us to list that too!
Work, dinner, shopping, weekends, farmer’s market, picnic, friend’s house, apple picking ___ with heels, with sneaks, with mules, with flats, with ballet slippers, with shirts, with tanks, with tees, with plaids, with patterns, with graphics and definitely with this blouse. You get it… so now get it! And visit our Instagram too. #thisisgoingtobefun
