Being Brickner : 15 Weeks

Monday, December 8, 2014

15 Weeks




Baby Brickner's Size:  An apple!  The belly continues to grow by the day (or the hour?!), one of my students walked in after Thanksgiving break, looked straight at my belly & said "you got huge!". Teenagers, it's hard to think I will have at least a couple of those of my own one day. ;)

Maternity Clothes:  I took advantage of Black Friday & Cyber Monday to stock up on a few Asos maternity dresses for the holiday season & beyond, I am always obsessed with everything I get from there so I feel like it's worth it.  Also in fashion news, me & my pregnancy brain somehow misplaced my new Gap maternity leggings.  Then me & my pregnancy hormones seriously almost shed tears, those babies are so comfy, I consider them gold.  Fingers crossed they show up soon!

Best Moment This Week:  Waverly looked down at my belly the other day & said, "that's my baby", while giving it a kiss!  I could have died, I cannot wait to see this girl with her baby brother or sister!!  Also, we have had lots of holiday fun lately, big sister (& her sunglasses!) wanted to jump in a few bump-dates this week.  We fit in a couple of pictures before going to the tree farm over the weekend.


Miss Anything:  Sleep.  I was so exhausted throughout the first trimester that I slept like a rock every night, yet now that it's to the point I can no longer sleep on my back, I am having major issues (I am SUCH a back sleeper!).  I use my pregnancy pillow most nights, but it's still so hard to get comfortable.  I keep waking up halfway on my back & freaking out!

Movement:  Still mainly flutters, but I have felt a few during the day now!  It's just my favorite, I can't wait for more & more!!! :)

Cravings:  Food in general, especially during the first part of the day, I am starving every couple of hours.  I finally have been able to add a few sweets back into my nightly routine, yet still mostly going for salty!  And totally random, but I love ketchup.  On everything.

Queasy or Sick:  Still feeling better, for the most part!!  I still have a few moments here & there but feel like a whole new woman after the previous couple of months!

Looking Forward To:  Our GENDER ultrasound scheduled for this week, we are hoping this babe plays along & we can find out if Waverly Maye is getting a baby brother or sister!!!!!  From day one, both my husband & I have had the same feeling what this babe is, then the past week, I have completely changed my mind.  Bottom line, we have no idea. ;) We truly will be beyond thrilled either way, I just can't wait to know, to be able to share it with Waverly, to shop, & to start nursery planning!

Wishing you all a lovely week ahead!

  3. You are sooooo cute! and I hope Mia loves my belly when I'm pregnant again someday!
    I totally understand the sleep part! I am SUCH a stomach sleeper so that was painful for me to try an fall asleep on my sides, ugh! ha ha. Then I turned into a back sleeper while pregnant, it was so stressful for me! I finally had a talk with my dr because I kept waking up multiple times a night a night on my back- he told me I was finnnnnnne. That my body would stop doing that when it becomes a problem, same with stomach sleeping! So I stopped freaking out and he was right! Once I got to a certain size I didn't even WANT to sleep on my belly or back, my body stopped craving that. BUT if you stack a few pillows behind you (so that you're elevated) you should be totally fine on your back!

  4. I can't wait for you to find out! Yaaay! And crying about the loss of your fave leggings sounds totally legit to me. I've def been a crier this time around, and sometimes it's for no reason at all! Hope the leggings show up soon:)
