Staying fit while pregnant
AS YOUR bump – and you – grow during pregnancy, it's easy to feel increasingly unfashionable. Indeed, research suggests that seven out of 10 mums-to-be think they look frumpy while expecting, and nearly a quarter feel 'unsexy and shapeless', with most really missing the skinny jeans they can't get into any more. A recent study also found that knowing what to wear for a changing body shape was a challenge for more than three-quarters of mums-to-be. For four in 10 expectant mums, the answer to their sartorial woes was to buy clothes several sizes too big, hiding their expanding waistlines under baggy tops and bottoms.

A group of Italian hotels is offering an unusual reward to guests: any couple that conceives while staying there can claim a free holiday. So far, ten hotels in Assisi, central Italy, have signed up to the 'Fertility Room' campaign, with more expected to follow. The initiative was officially launched on Friday with the slogan 'Venite ad Assisi. Insieme!' (Come to Assisi. Together!) Some of the hotels will offer reimbursements to guests who get pregnant during their stay, while others will offer a second stay free of charge. All you have to do to claim the offer is show the baby's birth certificate to prove they were born nine months (give or take ten days) after the original stay. “Giving birth to a child is an act of deep love, which should be encouraged despite the multitude of difficulties in life," organizers said.
