Being Brickner : 16 Weeks

Monday, December 15, 2014

16 Weeks

Size of Baby Brickner:  An avocado, which is fitting, since that is definitely one of my cravings these days!!

Maternity Clothes:  A few of my dresses from Asos that I purchased over Cyber Monday came in this week, I love them & can't wait to wear them for a few holiday events we have coming up!  I definitely recommend their maternity section, the pieces are accommodating to a growing bump while still being fashionable, which I definitely feel is hard to do. The dress above is from Target, another of my favorites for maternity clothes.  It's a little big but I bought big so hopefully it will last, I looked at picture of my last couple months with Waverly the other day, I can't believe I actually think this belly is big now!!

Best Moment This Week:  Our gender ultrasound!!!!!!!  After having a big gender reveal party with Waverly Maye, my husband & I decided to go a completely different route this time & find out completely on our own, with only us two plus big sister (of course!) in the room.  It really was the best, most special moment, & no doubt one I will remember forever.  We shared with our families over the weekend & are SO excited to share with everyone else, but we decided to wait until my blood work comes back to confirm.  It should be here any moment, so stay tuned ... :)

Miss Anything:  Medicine!  I've been sick for a few days now, it has pretty much put me down & taken all my energy away. Hoping to feel better very soon, sick while pregnant is no joke!

Movement:  About the same, the ultrasound technician said my placenta was anterior (I think?), it is the one where you feel movement more & more quickly.  And I love that. :)

Cravings:  Still the same, all salt & hungry all the time!  Getting excited for Christmas events with lots of good food soon!

Queasy or Sick:  Up until getting sick, I really have been feeling so much better!!  So thankful that most of the nausea is behind me, fingers crossed!

Looking Forward To:  Other than sharing what this babe is, I am so excited for Christmas break with my girl! Today we kick off the last week of school, then it's two weeks off!!!  Because of the way the days fell this year, we have extra-long & I am not complaining at all!

Hope you guys had the best weekend!

  2. You look so amazing!! LOVE the dress! Dying to find out the gender... so fun that you found out so early! Our doctor made us wait until 20 weeks with Mia, and we didn't go do the 3D ultrasounds (or whatever they are) to find out earlier. I don't know if I'll be able to be that patient with our next!

  6. I am so excited about hearing the gender of baby Brickner #2! Yay! I had an anterior placenta with Caleb, and it made it more difficult to feel him move until later (it's when the placenta is in front of the baby so the movement is muffed by it). This time around, I don't have that, and have been loving being able to feel all the little thuds and bumps early on!:) It sounds like yours might be posterior too if you are already feeling those sweet movements!:) Gosh, I just can't wait for your announcement (and to hear all about what Ms. Waverly thinks about whether she is getting a brother or sister!)
