Baby’s Sex: It’s a Surprise!
How would you describe your pregnant style? Almost exclusively leggings and loose shirts or large sweaters. I didn’t find bump-fitting shirts flattering until my third trimester.
Have you had any challenges learning to dress your body during this pregnancy? I found the phase towards the end of my second trimester/beginning of third a little difficult because my belly hadn’t popped enough to wear things that accentuated it in a flattering way, but looser-fitting shirts started to look tight or else were way too oversized.
So far, what has surprised you most during your pregnancy? How much sleep I now require. I’ve never been someone that could fall asleep before 10pm but staying up past 9pm has now become a challenge!
What are you most looking forward to sharing with your baby? I’m really excited about delivering in the Spring so I can walk around the city with the baby; especially Central Park when the Cherry Blossoms are out. I also can’t wait for our families to meet this little one — it’s the first grandkid for both our parents and first niece/nephew for all our siblings so everyone is very excited.
