|H&M Hat, Sweater & Maternity Jeans|
Baby Brickner's Size: A lemon! According to my pregnancy app, the baby will double in size this week. And according to me, the belly may have already doubled as well. ;)
Maternity Clothes: I am all about leggings right now, these Gap maternity ones are amazing & a pair of preggo leggings are on their way! I have been pairing them with long tanks & cardigans or sweaters, it has been freezing here so I feel like that's the best option. I am showing so much faster this time than with Waverly, so I am trying to figure out my game plan to dress the bump in the fall/winter months, something I really didn't have to think about before. #firstworldproblems
Best Moment This Week: Definitely Thanksgiving! I loved spending extra time with our sweet family, watching another holiday through Waverly's little eyes, & of course, lots of yummy food. It's so much fun to think about another babe to add to all of the fun next year!
Miss Anything: Honestly, not much! With both pregnancies I haven't even missed a glass of wine or a cold beer, both are total aversions & even the smell of them make me sick. I guess that's a good thing. Not sure if I will change my mind in a couple months ... ;)
Movement: About the same as last week, the random, cutest "wiggles" at night when I am laying down. I am still really looking forward to more movement, which I know can't be long, in our latest ultrasound our babe was throwing its hands & feet around everywhere! Something tells us that he/she is not going to be any less wild than big sister!
Cravings: Food, in general, & all salty still. I remember this with Waverly too (especially in the beginning), I get so hungry that I feel like if I don't eat, I may just fall over. It's like I can never, ever eat enough.
Queasy or Sick: For the most part, the nausea is subsiding & I couldn't be happier!! If I eat anything sweet, I still get the worst taste in my mouth so I am trying my best to just stay away. Which can be hard. Because did I mention that I am always hungry?!
Looking Forward To: The holiday season!! I looked at my calender the other day & could not believe how close Christmas actually is. We have so much planned, I got Waverly's advent calender set up over the weekend & know she is going to have so much fun with it this year. Also, a lot of me wants to make it extra-special since I know this will be our last Christmas as a family of three.
And the cutest, lately everyone keeps asking Waverly Maye if she is hoping for a brother or sister. At first, she always answered sister, which we couldn't decide was because she actually knew that a sister meant a girl like her, or if she just associated that with us telling her she is going to be a big sister. Then for a while, she answered "brudda". Now, it's ALWAYS a "baby bogger", our dog's name. So much so that I am starting to think she is going to be legitimately disappointed when she walks into the hospital room in June & I didn't give birth to a small dog.
