5 Qs with Courtney
Name: Courtney Byrne Neighborhood: Cranford, NJ Occupation: Mom and Writer 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?
