Kate Middleton's Final Preparations Before Baby May Surprise You

With only a few days of pregnancy left, Kate Middleton has gone and done what any self-respecting almost mama-to-two would do: She went and got herself gussied up. Like many women, the Duchess indulged in some pre-baby beauty treatments recently, and no doubt, she look lovely as ever when she welcomes her second baby. 


A royal insider told OK! magazine, "Kate had her hair done a couple of days ago, plus a mani-pedi, her legs waxed and a nice relaxing facial." She's also apparently mulling over what to wear when she and the rest of her family leave the hospital. The source said, "Kate just loves yellow. It's very spring-like for the new arrival. She's just going to decide after the baby's born what she's going to wear."

Kate certainly isn't the first woman to want to look her best when going into the hospital to give birth, but she definitely has added pressure that your typical mom doesn't have. There already are people lined up outside of the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's hospital, hoping to catch a glimpse of the Duchess -- and surely they, and tons of media, will be there waiting for her when she comes out. 

It sounds like Kate is enjoying these last days of her pregnancy as much as she can. She deserves all the pampering in the world right now -- her life is about to be turned upside down. Also, the entire world is going to have their eyes on her a day or so after she gives birth. No pressure there!

Did you do any pre-baby pampering?
