How would you describe your pregnant style?
Casual, comfortable, effortless, as non-maternity as possible. I tend to wear things I did before and just adapt them. Blousy and stretchy non-maternity shirts with maternity jeans, regular printed or elastic waist pants with a good, roomy T, a V-neck with an open (plaid) button down…
Have you had any challenges learning to dress your body during this pregnancy?
Some of my maternity clothes I wore 4 years ago don’t fit my body this time. I’m carrying differently than I was with my daughter.
So far, what has surprised you most during your pregnancy?
How much bigger (and quicker!) I’ve gotten in my second pregnancy versus my first.
What are you most looking forward to sharing with your baby?
Mostly, I’m looking forward to getting the chance to do it again, one last time, after four years and a loss. But I also can’t wait for the new baby smell, the sleeping on my chest, all the firsts… And to see my daughter with her baby brother. I really can’t wait for that!
What’s your top 5 registry essentials?
1. Swaddle or receiving blankets that are multi-purpose.
2. A good baby carrier.
3. A sound machine (game-changing so you don’t have to be those parents “shhh”).
4. Plenty of cheap, soft onesies.
5. Diapers/wipes/actual essentials that you really need, you go through so quickly and add up!
