How would you describe your pregnant style?
As a makeup artist, I like to dress a little more edgy at the salon. On my off days I like to dress casual comfortable.
Have you had any challenges learning to dress your body during this pregnancy?
Before my pregnancy I wore very flowy and loose tops. As my belly grew I learned that more fitted shirts were the most flattering. That was hard for me at first because I was self conscious in the beginning. Now I love my belly and feel confident in my new clothes.
So far, what has surprised you most during your pregnancy?
Since this is my first pregnancy, I found it amazing how fast my body changed and how quickly I adapted to this new life. I've heard so many complaints from pregnant women about their pregnancies. I love being pregnant! But now that I'm approaching my last 4 weeks, I am getting a little antsy.
What’s been your favorite pregnancy piece or brand to show off your bump?
I've been fortunate enough to have been given some amazing hand-me-downs from my sister and friend. I've also found some great stuff at H&M and surprisingly Forever 21, even though it's not maternity wear.
What NYC experience are you most looking forward to sharing with your baby?
Having a summer baby means maternity leave all summer! I'm really looking forward to family trips in NYC filled with fresh air and some parks.
