On her pregnancy at six months:
"I feel amazing. I've been fortunate so far with this pregnancy. Thankfully, I never experienced morning sickness, but I did get a wave of fatigue that started at week 15 and went through week 17. I can't complain, because it dissipates so quickly, but waking up exhausted is not a fun feeling."
On her current diet:
"One of the great things about having a toddler is that you actually have produce in the fridge! When I was living with just my husband, I'd stress about buying raspberries because I'd know they'd go bad before I'd eat them. Now it's such a pleasure to open my refrigerator and see all kinds of fruit. Every morning I'll have either cottage cheese or Greek yogurt - I do full fat; I prefer the taste - with a bowl of blueberries or raspberries and cereal. When I wake up, I have a glass of water with lemon. Before I was pregnancy all I drank was coffee, but now I drink a tremendous amount of water. I get anxiety if I go for 30 minutes without a glass of water near me!"
On the difference between her first and second child:
"When I was pregnant with Arabella, I probably read 50 books on pregnancy and parenting. In retrospect, I could have thrown 25 percent of them out of the window. You really don't need to study how to change a diaper. As a new mom, you learn pretty darn quickly! I found that for the most part, you just figure it out."
