Baby’s Gender: it’s a girl!
How would you describe your pregnant style?
I think that a pregnant body is the most wonderful and natural thing in the world, and that’s why I love to bring it in light. I’ve never considered my belly to be an obstacle but rather a side to be proud of. I love showing off my bump! I like that my style when I’m pregnant looks like what I am without a bump. Every day, I try to mix pieces of clothes that I have always had in my wardrobe with more comfortable clothes that fit a pregnant woman (and mama of a little boy of 18 months who loves running!)
Have you had any challenges learning to dress your body during pregnancy?
This is my second pregnancy, but the first one that I live in summer, so I can’t really wear the maternity clothes that I bought for my first pregnancy. I tried to find solutions with loose dresses and skirts with crop tops. I pay attention to materials, giving priority to what fits and espouses my bump. Everything I’ve worn during my pregnancy isn’t maternity clothes, therefore reusable.
So far, what has surprised you most during your pregnancy?
How completely different two pregnancies can be, even if they are close (I got pregnant when my first baby was 10 months). For this second pregnancy, though the first three months were a bit hard because of morning sickness, I did not even realize I was pregnant. But the feeling of wonder to have a life growing inside me is always the same. I really love being pregnant.
What are you most looking forward to sharing with your baby?
Everything. Everyday life. From breakfast in the morning to goodnight kisses. I look forward to living the life of a family of 4, to seeing my two children together and playing with both of them.
