Baby’s Gender: Our 4th surprise!

How would you describe your pregnant style?
Practical. With my first few pregnancies I was all about trying to stay fashionable while pregnant. This time, I still feel that way, but have to remind myself I have to chase around a 5, 4 and 1-year-old while pregnant. I’ve updated my maternity wardrobe with some comfortable new pieces that let me keep up with my active crew. I also feel like it took me 4 pregnancies to finally find some awesome places to shop for maternity clothes, so I am enjoying more variety in my maternity style.

Have you had any challenges learning to dress your body during pregnancy?
This time has been challenging because I feel like my body has changed more than in earlier pregnancies, so some of my “go-to” maternity styles from earlier pregnancies don’t seem to work this time.

So far, what has surprised you most during your pregnancy?
How fast it’s gone! This time I feel like I blinked and I was in my 3rd trimester. The other 3 pregnancies seemed to last a lot longer.

What are you most looking forward to sharing with your baby?
His or her siblings. This little one is coming into a crew of 2 sisters and 1 brother that are full of love and smiles. I can’t wait to bring the baby home to complete our family.

What’s your 5 registry essentials?
