It ain't easy to look sexy when you feel as bloated and gassy as the Goodyear blimp and, at any moment, one bad whiff from your sensitive sniffer will bring your breakfast up. Here's our toast to this year's celebrities with burgeoning bumps, like Reese Witherspoon, who make looking preggers impossibly pretty.

Pregnant Reese Witherspoon at Cannes Film Festival in France

Reese Witherspoon. Reese has finally acknowledged that she is, indeed, with child. She says she's feeling rather round these days, but the glowing actress manages to make even that shape look sophisticated. If we didn't like you so much, Reese, we'd hate you.

Pregnant Megan Fox on The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Megan Fox. Recent photos all but confirm that Megan Fox is also preggers, so we have to stop pretending it might just be water weight giving her added girth. Sometimes we run-of-the-mill women want to believe stunning celebs when they deny they are harboring a future Hollywood-er, because we simply don't look that good with an encumbered uterus.

Pregnant Actress Sienna Miller

Sienna Miller. Oh, Sienna. You were tres chic pre-pregnancy and are now equally stylish sporting your ever-so-dainty baby bump. Is there any chance we could bribe you to don a tracksuit and go sans makeup for a day? That would be super.

Pregnant Kourtney Kardashian

Kourtney Kardashian. Bustin' at the belly with baby numero dos, Kourtney deals with pregnancy discomforts while dressed to the nines in fashion-forward outfits. And she lives with Scott Disick — that may actually be more painful than the process of giving birth.

Pregnant Sarah Michelle Gellar Prinze with Daughter Charlotte

Sarah Michelle Gellar Prinze. Despite the cancellation of her series Ringer, Sarah Michelle isn't sweating anything this summer. Literally. While pregnancy can make you feel as though you're cooking from the inside out, she never so much as glistens when playing outdoors with daughter Charlotte.

Model Adriana Lima at Victoria's Secret Event

Adriana Lima. We think Adriana Lima outshines her leggy compatriot Gisele in the pregnancy department. Clearly, Adriana is undeniably beautiful, but the most endearing thing about this hot second-time mama-to-be is the huge smile she never leaves home without these days.

Pregnant Vanessa Lachey at Tide Event

Vanessa (Minnillo) Lachey. On the heels of a long courtship and fairytale wedding, Vanessa and Nick Lachey couldn't be more ready to tune into parenthood... and it shows! The down-to-earth actress never looks wiped-out from pregnancy fatigue.

Pregnant Kristin Cavallari in Los Angeles

Kristin Cavallari. Former Laguna Beach brat Kristin Cavallari traded in her bad girl ways when she met and affianced football player Jay Cutler. The devilish reality TV diva says pregnancy has been a walk in the park, and — annoyingly — it certainly appears to agree with her. (Meanwhile, the rest of us pregnant gals have heartburn so severe it feels like the river Styx is running through our chests —  so not fair.)
