|H&M Shirt, Non-Maternity|
Size of Baby Brickner: An Onion!
Maternity Clothes: I've been in maternity pants for what feels like forever now, mostly H&M brand which I have found to fit the best for the most affordable price! I am really, really looking forward to Christmas (for lots of reasons), but I think Santa might be bringing me these JBrand jeans. They are definitely a splurge for maternity, but I think a necessity since we have a few more months of winter ahead. Is it maxi dress season yet?!
Also, I feel I should point out why I very purposefully left off the weight gain category on these weekly bump-dates. As much as that would be great to look back on for any future pregnancies, to put it bluntly, I honestly I have decided not to care. Like at all. I eat really healthy when not pregnant, but with both pregnancies, haven't even found that an option. Most of my normal go-to foods are total aversions now, & I happen to be starving all day, everyday, just like round one. I gained about 40 pounds with Waverly, but between breastfeeding & being consumed with a newborn, lost most of it within a few months. So I've decided not to stress it, I mean, would that be good for the baby?!!!! ;)
Best Moment This Week: Sharing the baby GIRL news!! Most of our family was convinced that this babe was a boy, so it was so much fun to surprise everyone with the fact that Waverly was getting a sweet little sister! We had dinner with each side of the family & let them each open an ornament, they were an odd number of blue or pink so they had to wait to see which one there was more of! So much fun!
We also got our blood test back, which obviously confirmed the girl news, but also showed that our girl passed her other tests (down syndrome, cystic fibrosis)! SUCH a good feeling. :)
Miss Anything: Sleeping on my back. You really don't realize what a luxury that is until you can't do it anymore.
Movement: Pretty much the same! So excited for my husband & Waverly to be able to really feel soon!
Cravings: Cereal & potatoes, which is exactly what my major cravings were with Waverly.
Queasy or Sick: We are still feeling the last of the sickness, Waverly & I passed it on to my husband so it feels like it has been with us forever. Hoping it's all behind us so we can enjoy the holiday!
Looking Forward To: CHRISTMAS!!!!!!! I can't believe this week is actually here, it definitely came out of nowhere this year but we are so excited! We had our first round of celebrations this weekend with family, Waverly loved it so much & it was so much fun watching her really understand more now. I cannot wait to see her face Christmas morning! :)
Hope you all had the best weekend full of hustle, bustle, & holiday happiness!
