Once you find out you're expecting, first trimester symptoms and the need for a new wardrobe can put a damper on this moment of your life. However, there's plenty to celebrate before the baby arrives - it's not just about morning sickness and doctor's visits! Pregnancy also gives you the opportunity to decorate a nursery and hold a baby shower worth remembering for the rest of your life.
Singer Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas took full advantage of this over the weekend when she held a star-studded baby shower - but she had to give most of the credit to her friends, who planned it for her and her little one, according to E! Online. Some of the celebrities who attended included Kelly Osbourne, Adam Lambert and Julianne Hough. Photos from the event were posted on Instagram for the world to see.
"Everyone was over-the-moon enjoying themselves and glowing all happy to be sharing in Fergie's big day," a source who attended the party told E! Online.
Planning your own baby shower
There are a few factors you need to consider as you plan out your baby shower. First, do you want to have it at a restaurant or party hall, or would you rather do it in the comfort of your own home? Next, Real Simple magazine stated that a simple theme can help you relieve stress along the way. For example, think of filling vases full of baby's breath rather than elaborate flower arrangements to add decorative flair.
Finally, don't forget about the cake and party favors! You don't need to go crazy, but showing a little appreciation to gift givers can go a long way.
