How would you describe your pregnant style?

Comfortable chic. I am on my feet all day so comfort is really important to me.

Have you had any challenges learning to dress your body during this pregnancy?

I’ve gained a little more weight than I wanted to and my hips are wide which has been a challenge. I am trying to wear longer shirts and more tunics to cover up that area.

So far, what has surprised you most during your pregnancy?

How much I love feeling the baby move inside me. In my first two pregnancies the boys were not as active as this pregnancy. I stilled am amazed every time he moves that there is a human being growing inside me.

What’s been your favorite pregnancy piece or brand to show off your bump?

I’m obsessed with my AG maternity Jeans. I love jeans and AG is my favorite brand pre-pregnancy so I was happy to carry that over.

What NYC experience are you most looking forward to sharing with your baby?

We live on central park west so I kind of think of the park as our backyard. I am excited to have a spring baby and be able to be out and about in the park.
