How would you describe your pregnant style?
Eclectic, but most of all comfortable.
Have you had any challenges learning to dress your pregnant body?
I tend to be smaller on top and larger on the bottom, so the baby bump actually helped me look more proportional, which was an unexpected bonus! I invested in some great maternity pants in my first trimester and continued to wear flowy non-maternity tops, dresses and jackets into my third trimester.
So far, what has surprised you most during your pregnancy?
I'm so much more comfortable and confident in my pregnant body then I ever imagined I would be. Plus I find women -- even perfect strangers-- are so kind and supportive, especially if they are already mommies. It has really helped me embrace the changes happening to my body and to remember it is performing miracles every day!
What's been your favorite pregnancy piece or brand to show off your bump?
Those black leggings that cover your entire belly are life changers! Every pregnant woman should own five pairs.
What NYC experience are you most looking forward to sharing with your baby?
Central Park. It's quintessential NY and truly an oasis from the hustle and bustle of the city. It'll be like having the biggest backyard to play in ever!
