Pregnancy #: 1

How would you describe your pregnant style?
Comfortable but stylish.

Have you had any challenges learning to dress your pregnant body?
I did not have any challenges dressing my pregnant body. Most of my tops were already loose and flowy. I only purchased three pairs of maternity jeans and a maternity maxi dress from Target during my entire pregnancy. The majority of my pregnancy was during the cold months, and most of time I wore tights and sweater dresses. I also wore my regular summer dresses in the winter by simply pairing them with leggings and a cardigan.

So far, what has surprised you most during your pregnancy?
What surprised me most was that I did not gain weight in my face, legs and arms. I was ALL belly.

What’s been your favorite pregnancy piece or brand to show off your bump?
My favorite pregnancy piece is the green and navy maxi dress I purchased from Target. I’ve worn it at least 10 times, including to the Bump Envy photo shoot.

What NYC experience are you most looking forward to sharing with your baby?
I am most looking forward to taking him to all of the wonderful parks around Brooklyn and Manhattan, and the events that take place in them during the year.
