How would you describe your pregnant style?

I like my clothes to be versatile, so they can go from casual to work with just adding a few accessories or cute shoes.

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

I have a curvy body to begin with, so I need to wear things that are fitted on my belly and loose on my chest, otherwise I will look huge.

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

This is my second pregnancy and although physically the pregnancies feel the same, emotionally they are very different. I am much more emotional this time around!

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

My 3-year-old, Monroe, is beyond excited to become a big sister. I am looking forward to witnessing the sibling love they are going to have for each other. Adding this type of love to our family will make it complete!
