Size of Baby Brickner: An ear of corn.
Maternity Clothes: Yes, & thankfully, the weather is showing signs of warming up so I am getting so excited for spring clothes! The outfit above is another maxi with a crop top over it, my go-to lately! It’s so comfortable & versatile, plus I can still run after a toddler in it, all keys to the mom wardrobe. The crop tops are from H&M (only $9.95, in-store), and the maxi dress is from Forever 21.
Best Moment This Week: Other than the hubby working lots of overtime, we had a really good week! Our appointment went great, baby girl’s heartbeat was as strong as ever & my belly measured right on track. Also, I had to go in for a second test for a UTI since my first came back abnormal, I had been nervous about it ever since, but thankfully, it came back with good news!
In other exciting news, I got two baby purchases crossed off the list! I ordered the Solly wrap, which I am really, really looking forward to using after lots of great reviews from so many mom bloggers. I had really been wanting a carrier that I was in love with this time, especially since I know I will need all the extra hands I can with two kids now. I had both the Moby & Ergo with Waverly, we definitely liked the Ergo more, I never could figure out how to wrap the Moby right. We had one too many moments with Waverly crying & me wanting to cry trying to make some sort of attempt to get her in that thing, even the 100 you tube tutorials could do nothing for me. The Ergo we loved once she was about six months & used it up until close to her second birthday, but I’m hoping the Solly will be better for those early days! Also, I got my diaper bag!!! It was a total steal, a Rebecca Minkhoff that was $150 at TJ Maxx marked down to $50. I couldn’t get it in the cart fast enough, I had really been wanting a diaper bag that didn’t look like one, I would have been happy with a regular bag with a lot of compartments but was even more excited that this actually was one (which I didn’t notice until we were in line & saw a changing pad!).
Movement: ALL of the time, all over! She is officially big enough so I can watch my belly move now, which is the weirdest & coolest thing all at the same time!
Cravings: Still yogurt & granola, which is still so different than the first months of this pregnancy when even the thought of them made me sick. I had the biggest bowl of frozen yogurt (like really, the biggest) for dinner the other night & it was amazing!!
Queasy or Sick: I have another cold this week, but overall, feeling good!
Looking Forward To: Valentines Day!! I am SO excited that it falls on a Saturday & that I get to spend all day with both my loves (plus the one in my belly!). I have plans for some major girl time to celebrate the next few days, some baking & crafting which I know Waverly will love. All pink, red & hearts ALL week long, yes please! I can’t believe I will have two girls to do this with next year. 🙂
