How would you describe your pregnant style?
Simple and comfortable – Motherhood Maternity leggings with longer, flowy tunics and tops. My friend suggested investing in ONE good pair of jeans and I’m so happy I did – went with AG Secret Fit Belly Signature Pocket Slim Leg Maternity Jeans. I found some cute tops on Nordstrom from Topshop and planning on plenty of maxi dresses this summer. I continue to live in this moto jacket from Express – still find it slimming, even with the bump.
Have you had any challenges learning to dress your body during pregnancy?
I went from my wedding weight (i.e., smallest ever) to a growing, pregnant body in about 20 seconds, so it was a bit of a challenge to adjust. Tight, itchy materials around my belly never felt right so I strayed away from bellybands and certain brands of leggings. I discovered in my fifth month that A-line or sheath looks are best.
So far, what has surprised you most during your pregnancy?
My ability to sleep! I’ve never slept this well (or long) in my life. I feel like baby’s growing a new limb every night. Also surprised (and overjoyed) literally every time I feel him kick. And I’ve been amazed at how many pregos are out there! We’re everywhere when you start really looking (especially in my neighborhood). I’m so impressed with how much grace they seem to have while dealing with full-time jobs, kids, commuting on the subway, and the daily stressors of life in NYC, all while managing the ups and downs and aches and pains and exhaustion of pregnancy. I have a whole new appreciation for moms everywhere, but especially in this city.
What are you most looking forward to sharing with your baby?
Saturday morning walks to the park for off-leash hours with our dog, Lola – a favorite weekend ritual. Gonna start the dog love REAL early.
What’s your 5 registry essentials?
Still figuring this out. We went with Amazon Baby and I’m glad we did. So far, here’s what I’m most psyched about:
- New Zealand Lambskin for Baby
- Fisher-Price My Little Snugapuppy Deluxe Bouncer
- My Brest Friend Nursing Pillow (reco essential from sister-in-law)
- NoJo Alligator Blues 4 Piece Crib Set
- Carters Baby Boys Bulldog Puppy Sleep & Play (so cuuuuute)
