5 Qs with Kristin


Name: Kristin Dougherty
Neighborhood: Williamsburg
Occupation: Full time mama/sometimes actress
Baby’s Sex: Baby Girl # 2

How would you describe your pregnant style?
I would describe my pregnancy style as comfy and classic. On most days I’m wearing a pair of jeans to accommodate my growing belly, a striped shirt ( I have way too many) and a pair of clogs. Basically anything I can comfortably chase after a two year old in.

Have you had any challenges learning to dress your body during this pregnancy?
My challenge with dressing my bump with this pregnancy was finding a warm coat to button or zip over my belly. I just recently started wearing my fiancé’s old peacoat and it fits perfectly over my bump and keeps me nice and toasty.

So far, what has surprised you most during your pregnancy?
What has surprised me most about my pregnancy this time around is how much less I worry. When I was pregnant with my daughter I worried about everything! This time around I’ve learned to roll with it and not stress over things I can’t control.

What’s been your favorite pregnancy piece or brand to show off your bump?
My favorite pieces during this pregnacy are my Liz Lange low rise maternity jeans, leggings with some of my fiancé’s old plaid shirts, and a maxi dress I picked up at Free People.

What NYC experience are you most looking forward to sharing with your baby?
I’m looking forward to those hazy newborn walks, sipping lattes, while little one snoozes in the carrier on my chest. I’m also looking forward to sing-a-longs at the knitting factory, strolls at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden while the cherry blossoms are in full swing, and when she’s old enough taking both my daughters to see the Rockettes around Christmas time.
