Size of Baby Brickner: A mango!!
I feel like the bump has BUMP-ed this week, I don’t know where little miss came from but she is getting big! I have completely embraced it with more form-fitting clothes, I am loving non-maternity maxi dresses with fun jackets or scarves (this one is from H&M
). I also got a couple more leggings & maternity tanks from Target
for Christmas, & want to live in them!
Best Moment This Week: Christmas, it was so much fun watching Waverly understand more this year! She may even like Santa a little more now after she saw how good he was to her, hoping that means she will actually be willing to sit on his lap with little sister next year! 😉 I can’t wait to share pictures soon!
Miss Anything: First, I have to say that I still love being pregnant & feel lucky beyond measure to have this baby girl growing in my belly!! Yet also, I have to keep it real, this pregnancy has definitely been way harder than the first. The cold I got a couple weeks ago felt like it got better & then got worse again, it made for some really exhausting, plus congested, days. I hate that I don’t feel like always feel like myself with Waverly right now, it’s pretty much the worst mom guilt ever. Yet then, I remember how much I am giving her, right around the same time I feel the little lady move in my belly. So of course, it is MORE than worth it – but for the record, I will appreciate a z-pack much more after June.
Movement: I got paranoid because I hadn’t felt her much recently, & then the last two days have felt her more than ever! Hands down, best part of pregnancy!
I finally feel like I can handle some sweets again, which makes me so very happy!! Waverly & I have been celebrating with fudgesicles. 🙂
Queasy or Sick: Other than the cold, most of the nausea is still gone! I did have some heartburn this week, which I don’t remember ever having with Waverly.
Looking Forward To: Now that Christmas is behind us, I am suddenly getting really excited to start cleaning & purging to get ready for another little person in our house! I am also really excited for a low key New Year’s & another week off at home with Waverly Maye. 🙂
I hope you all had the most wonderful Christmas Eve & Day, happy week ahead!
