Hot mamas may just encounter a summer heat quandary of wanting to hit the beach or the pool, and yet not having a suit to wear... or the confidence to put one on!

Fortunately, becoming a mother doesn't mean saying goodbye to funky fashions. There are plenty of options for expectant moms, whatever your style preference -- such as the swimwear below from the luxe A Pea in the Pod, affordable Old Navy, boutique TummyStyle and contemporary Mimi Maternity.

We adore this luxuriously green halter tankini (above) with side ruching, from the posh Pea. If you aren't already the jewel of the beach party, this emerald suit will be it for you! Old Navy gives you lots of flexibility to mix and match the way you want, with a range of colors and patterns in their tankini separates. TummyStyle.com carries the chic Maternal America one-piece Keyhole Mallot in Copper, also above, which flatters the belly, but still is sexy with the keyhole cut-out.

"Women are proud of their pregnant bodies, and they should be," Mothers Work President Rebecca Matthias (the company behind Mimi Maternity and A Pea in the Pod) says, "You reach a point during pregnancy when you can't hide it even if you wanted to, so why not show it off?"

? Geno Smith, New York Jets (18 percent, eight percent, five percent) -- Things seemed to click for the rookie on Monday night against the Falcons. Smith completed 16 of 20 pass attempts and tossed three touchdowns without turning the ball over. Smith threw eight interceptions in his first four games, so he needs a few more turnover-free games before we truly believe. But he flashed greatness on Monday night. Rex Ryan probably won't ever allow him to throw enough to become a must-start option, even if he does continue to develop. Smith has more of a bye-week replacement type ceiling. He isn't a bad option if you own Drew Brees and need a quarterback replacement in Week 7, when the Jets host the Patriots. ???`??å? reebok ????`???` ???`???`??`?? 2014

More important, abolishing aggregate limits would allow wealthy donors to make million-dollar contributions to joint committees fronted by presidential candidates or party leaders. As Democracy 21, a campaign reform group, notes: "These are precisely the kind of huge contributions that Congress has recognized since the Watergate reforms in 1974, and that the Supreme Court has held since the Buckley decision in 1976, are subject to contribution limits in order to prevent opportunities for corruption and the appearance of corruption." ????? ???`????????å? ????`???`

Donovans decision to follow Gonzalez and Dempsey and make a multiyear commitment to the league is a huge victory for MLS Commissioner Don Garber and his effort to keep the top U.S. players at home. All three players signed as designated players, a tag that allows teams to negotiate up to three contracts that exceed the leagues salary cap. Before this season, just three of the 31 players signed to designated-player contracts, including Donovan, were U.S.-born. ??`???????`??? Harman Kardon ??å??? ???????
