Lucky Kate! She followed up her flawless pregnancy style by giving birth over the weekend to Princess Charlotte (they just announced the name) debuting her adorable royal bundle of joy along with the most talked about blowout! The UK Daily Mail asked, ‘How does Kate do it? Mothers share their shock on Twitter as Duchess of Cambrige steps out looking immaculate.’ Some women cried she looked ‘too good‘ just 12 hours after giving birth and leaving the hospital. I was more surprised how fast she left after giving birth and now I’m curious what most women do. I’ve heard the standard here in Switzerland is that many women stay about 3 nights in the hospital. If you’ve had a baby or know someone who has, how long did you stay in the hospital?
May marks the beginning of my 8th month of pregnancy and I’ve noticed major changes including swelling in my legs, ankles, feet and my face! Some mornings I wake up looking like a pufferfish with a trout pout, before a 20-minute attempt to contour like a Kardashian. Now I know what The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills feel like on the morning of the reunion show taping with Andy Cohen after a Restylane binge. But beyond my plumped-up in polka dots look below; I’m enjoying our low-key weekends back in Zurich as summer approaches…
<I can barely reach my toes these days, but I’m loving this OPI shade ‘Life Gave Me Lemons‘>
<I found this polka dot top at TJ Maxx that was long & stretchy enough to work as a maternity top>
<At least accessories still fit, so I’ve been adding more dangly earrings, bangles and my gold Michael Kors watch to outfits>

I think Kate looked stunning after leaving the hospital and she is a princess after all with a beauty team and hairstylist. Do you think she is sending unfair expectations to women who have just given birth?
