Tali Katz’s Pregnancy Style

Bump envy!

*We’ve partnered with Mom’s the Word to show off some serious pregnancy style.

Name: Tali Katz
Neighborhood: Crown Heights
Occupation: Office Manager/Mom
Baby’s Sex: Male

How would you describe your pregnant style?
Casual and comfortable. I work in a family business, so luckily I don’t need to dress up too much. I pretty much wear leggings or skinny jeans and rotate a few sweaters. And I can’t live without my No. 6 boots/clogs.

Have you had any challenges learning to dress your body during this pregnancy?
This is my third boy, and it’s been pretty similar each time. I am bigger with each one though, so shirts I had with my first did not fit at all this time around. And fitting into winter jackets this year was really hard. I mainly layer up a Uniqlo thin jacket I had with a maternity wind breaker/rain jacket I borrowed from my sister, and that’s been doing the trick!  

So far, what has surprised you most during your pregnancy?
I’m pretty surprised at how I am keeping up with my two boys, 4.5 and 6.5. Even after waking up many mornings at 4 am and not really falling back asleep, I somehow find the energy to be with them and engaged.

What are you most looking forward to sharing with your baby?  
His brothers. They are SOO excited, and I can’t wait to see them interact and form bonds with each other.

What’s your top 5 registry essentials?
Since it’s my third, I don’t have one!! But what I love and got a ton of use from in the past is: the stroller hand muffs for winter, Soothie pacifiers, Aden+Anais swaddles, Little Giraffe blanket, and the Diaper Dekor plus garbage can with the biodegradable refills — it hides the smell so much better than the regular refills, if I recall correctly.

  1. I just had my third boy last October! It’s been a lot of crazy (and very surprising) emotions with this one–although it’s my third, it’s been 12 years since I’ve had a baby. So much has changed in that amount of time: no smart phones, google or facebook to figure things out. haha. I didn’t know how my boys would react to another baby, but they’ve been over the moon excited and he’s getting so much extra love it’s ridiculous. I would say my best advice to myself has been to calm down and not over-research everything. It’s great that I can find answers to any little baby question, but sometimes I find myself over-analyzing what I’m doing. At those times I tell myself that my other two are doing just fine, and my google search back then was calling my mom!

    1. Such great advice, Emily! We find ourselves doing that too and have to remind ourselves that mama really does know best, right? Thanks for your input.
