How would you describe your pregnant style?

Chic, comfortable and colorful.

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

I'm petite with hips, so I learned very quickly that tight looks best for my body. I love rocking the bump!

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

Probably my crazy addiction to chocolate and the weird aversions I had to healthy foods at the beginning of my pregnancy. I had major morning sickness, so the only veggies I could even look at were cucumbers and plain romaine lettuce. Green smoothies and sauteed kale? Forget about it! I've definitely learned more than ever to let go, be easy on myself and let my body (and baby) lead the way.

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

I LOVE cooking with my nephews (and other kids), so I can't wait to cook with MY baby.

What's your top 5 registry essentials?

  1. An all-in-one baby food maker, like Beaba's Babycook Plus Cloud.
  2. Fashionable high chair, like Jonathan Adler's Fisher Price High Chair.
  3. Monthly organic diaper deliveries.
  4. Mommy and Me Classes to local yoga studios and nearby activity centers.
  5. An amazing diaper bag, like the Charlie diaper bag from SoYoung.
