pregnancy trendsEvery generation has a handful of pregnancy trends that seem to be everywhere, most notably at baby showers and family gatherings. Today’s trends, though, blend traditional sharing of the pregnancy process with technology and social media for a truly unique take on what it’s like to have a child.

1. Social Media
The trend in social media pregnancies is only increasing as moms share via Facebook’s timeline, Pinterest’s online bulletin board, and the short tweets on Twitter that can announce new developments. Don’t shy away from the social media approach, as it has a number of long-term benefits (especially in terms of baby shower gifts)!

2. The Royal Pregnancy
The once-a-generation royal pregnancy is here, and that means moms everywhere are looking to Kate Middleton’s apparel and baby purchase as a source of inspiration. This is a fun way to pass the time during 9 months of pregnancy, so why not embrace a little royal aspiration while waiting for the arrival of the baby?

3. Downton Abbey
Downton Abbey is everywhere, and that includes pregnancy. The hit show, which has found adoring fans throughout Europe and the United States, is the source of inspiration for baby names in 2013. They might sound a bit old-fashioned, but many others perceive them as high-class and classic. Go with it.

A New Take on Pregnancy
With the backdrop of 20th century, Downton Abbey names, and 21st century social media tools, pregnancy is more unique and enjoyable than ever. Embrace this year’s trends and enjoy every moment!
