I am almost seven months pregnant and am increasingly clumsy and off balance, due to my ever expanding baby-belly. It has gotten to the point that I can no longer wear high heels. I need something flat and comfortable but cute. I don’t want to look like I am wearing grandma shoes. Help!



Dear Too-young-for-bingo,

Mommy's got a bun in the oven!

1. Congratulations!

2. You've come to the right place.

I've already given my readers an alternative to the Mom jean...now let's work our way down.

I'm betting that besides the hormonal changes, back/leg aches and fatigue you're experiencing the pregnant woman's hell...swollen feet.

You're right on the money- you need flats. By month seven, you don't have the time or the balance to be tottering around in heels that are anything over 2 inches. They'll only add to your pain and make you want to smack your baby daddy for getting you in this position in the first place.

Look for flats that come in wider sizes (swelling may make your regular size and width totally unbearable), and Slip-ons are a must. What pregnant woman wants to bend over to tie her shoe laces? Another feature baby mamas need? Decent arch support. If you can't find a pair you're crazy about that feature good arch support, no sweat- add an easy-does-it insert that'll get the job done for you.

Say goodbye to the 5 inch Steve Madden's you used to wear to the clubs, and give your feet a break by slipping on a pair of these Hush Puppies Break flats. Indulge in sleek, comfortable fashion with the these adorable low-cut skimmers that feature leather lining, a latex footbed, and trim EVA wedge midsoles that provide cushioning and breathability, while the two-color molded rubber sole adds grip and stability for those days when you're totally off balance.

Cute with jeans or your flirtiest maternity sundresses, and they're on sale, so Mommy gets her new pair of shoes while baby gets a new pack of Pampers.

Best wishes for an easy delivery!
