It is understandable that you will feel a bit lost once you can no longer fit into your favorite pair of jeans or your never-fail wrap dress. Lucky for you, PB's list of all the tried-and-true maternity fashion finds (from both "real" moms and celebrity moms) will soon be your new go-to clothes, trust us. In fact, you may like them so much, you won't want to give them up once baby arrives!

habitual jeanA maternity essential: designer denim
The "It" pair of jeans among the celebrity set that includes Angelina Jolie and Katie Holmes is the Habitual Maternity Jeans. They have a hip underbelly fit, adjustable waistband and an ultra-slimming cut. We kid you not -- these jeans look like your favorite non-maternity jeans. If the $186 price tag scares you away, think about this: they make great post-baby or transition jeans.

Long-layering Camis may look basic, but they are oh-so-versatile. You can wear them under low-cut shirts to conceal cleavage, under too-short shirts to extend their wear or by themselves when lounging around the house. Pick up the Maternity Long Layering Camis at Old Navy for $8.50 each (or 2 for $15).

Popular with both the pregnant and the non-pregnant set, metallic ballet flats are the perfect stylish shoe for the mom-to-be. Celebrity moms like Nicole Richie and Christina Aguilera pay $495 for a pair of Lanvin ballet flats, but we think a pair of BP 'Edie' Metallic Leather Ballet Flat($44.95) is just as cute.

First a few drops of ethanol, then a few drops of reduced phenolphthalein reagent solution, and, finally, a few drops of w:hydrogen peroxide are applied to the swab. If the swab turns pink then it is a positive test. This test is nondestructive to the sample, which can be kept and used in further tests at the lab. This is typically achieved by boiling an alkaline solution of phenolphthalein with zinc powder, which acts as the reducing agent. Upon reduction, the very intense pink colour of the cationic form of phenolphthalein fades to a faint yellow colour. It is this form of phenolphthalein that is present in Kastle Meyer test kits. In order to generate the intense pink colour indicative of a positive test, the reduced phenolphthalein must be oxidised back to its normal, coloured form.Mix the following reagents in a 250 cm3 round bottomed flask:[1]Phenolphthalein 2.0 gDeionised Water 100 cm3Zinc Dust 20.0 gA few anti bumping granulesBoil under reflux for 2 3 hours until the solution has lost its pink colour. Cool and decant into a bottle containing some zinc to keep in the reduced form. Stored in a fridge, in the dark, the shelf life is 6 months.[2]The preparation can be scaled up and the low concentration solution with ethanol created in one step:Phenolphthalein 4 gSodium Hydroxide pellets 40 gZinc dust 20 gDeionised water 1000 cm3Ethanol to bring the total volume up to 1200 cm3Reflux in a 5000 cm3 round bottomed flask. After reflux, restore to 1200 cm3 with ethanol.[2]Another method[3] uses similar proportions but avoids refluxing:Deionised water 250 cm3Using a stirring hot plate, mix and heat until the solution loses its pink colour. Do not boil. This process may take 2 to 3 hours.Decant the liquid into a 500 cm3 measuring cylinder. Add ethanol to make 300 cm3 of solution.Add a small amount of zinc powder to a brown bottle, and pour the phenolphthalein solution into this bottle. Label, date, and store the bottle in a refrigerator.Safe disposal of zinc[edit]Zinc powder or dust in contact with water or damp air evolves hydrogen. The heat of the reaction is sufficient that the hydrogen may ignite. Therefore the zinc should not be discarded in the wastebasket. The following disposal procedure should be followed for less than 20 g of zinc:Follow standard laboratory procedures of wearing gloves and safety aprons. Add dilute hydrochloric acid to the zinc dust in a beaker. Allow bubbles to form and slowly add more acid till no more bubbles are seen.When all the zinc has dissolved add sodium carbonate solution to the mixture. Bubbles will be formed. Keep on adding the sodium carbonate small quantity at a time till the zinc precipitates as zinc carbonate.锘緼pplying Exterior Stucco, Oh, I think Obama and Moore think that our children are important. It is just that their children are much more important than our children. Simply put, Obama and Moore advocate for rules for thee but not for me., 16. Baby fats. Babies need fat lots of it. Adult fat restrictions should not be applied to infants. Human milk contains around 50 percent of its calories in fats. Not only do infants need more fats, they need more of the right kind of fats, especially for brain growth. Since the brain grows more in the first two years than any other time in a person life, it most important to provide the infant with the right amount of the right fats at this crucial time. Breastfeeding is your best bet for delivering exactly what the baby needs. As of 1999, infant formulas available in the United States do not contain DHA, which is the most abundant omega 3 long chain fat in breast milk.
