She can stay as mum as she wants, but there's no denying that Mila Kunis is pregnant. The actress and her fiancee, Ashton Kutcher, were recently spotted at LAX, and Kunis' adorable baby bump was on full display. She's definitely popped, as they say, and the ever-intrusive paparazzi even managed to get a shot of her affectionately rubbing her belly. Cuteness.
I've gotta say, even though being pregnant isn't the most comfortable thing on the planet for everyone, "popping" -- AKA, finally looking pregnant and not like you just are bloated from overeating salty meats and cheeses -- is such a great, relieving feeling. It's sort of like your coming out party to the world. Mamas-to-be can finally stop trying to disguise their "awkward" body with baggy and loose-fitting clothing, and we can do the belly rub thing -- which, let's be honest, is innate -- without looking like complete weirdos.
Can I get an amen for finally looking pregnant, ladies?!
I'm currently a little over 16 weeks, and full disclosure? My body looks and feels weird to me right now. Being that it's my second pregnancy, I'm showing more than I was this time with my first, but I long for a few months from now when I can let it all hang out in a maxi dress and no one will look at me, wondering if I'm pregnant or not. (Bonus, though? Bigger boobs already -- woohoo!)

Also, there's the maternity clothes thing, pre-popping. Many women haven't yet made the switch at this point, myself included, so most things are tight and ill-fitting before we get our baby bumps. Although, word of advice, mamas: I'm actually wearing maternity jeggings today for the first time this pregnancy, due to having no clean clothes. Best. Decision. Ever. Even though I still (tightly) fit into my regular clothes, this is so much more comfy! I can't recommend it enough!
And, again, back to the belly-rubbing thing. It's instinctive and we all do it, regardless of where we are in our pregnancy. But it does look a little more natural when there's an actual bump -- a real bump -- there to rub, don't you think?
How far along were you before you popped?
