What have you loved about being pregnant?
I have honestly loved everything about being pregnant. I was fortunate enough to feel really great throughout this pregnancy and have enjoyed sharing my story through my blog about my experience from beginning to end. It has all been such a blessing!
What foods did you crave?
I went through phases of cravings throughout this pregnancy but majority were the things I would eat as a kid. Cereal, grilled cheese, ice cream, skittles, bagels, pizza.... basically anything carb related.
What will you miss about being pregnant?
Styling the bump!
The thing I most look forward to about being a mum:
A new chapter in our lives, watching her grow, and raising a little girl with my husband
What couldn't you live without this pregnancy?
What was your favourite maternity style?
Being that it was summer in Arizona during the majority of my pregnancy, I loved just throwing on a casual dress for work or while running errands throughout the day. I was all about simple, casual, and comfortable during this pregnancy!
