Being Brickner : 25 Weeks

Monday, February 16, 2015

25 Weeks


Size of Baby Brickner:  A cauliflower.  I can definitely tell she is getting bigger in there, obviously from the size of my belly, but also, I can feel her all over now!  She is definitely not as low as she was when we had our ultrasound five weeks ago, I am also curious if she is still measuring in the 30% percentile or if she has grown some!  Waverly was 7.6 the day after her due date, so I can't wait to see how similar the sisters weight will be!

Maternity Clothes:  Oh yes, I am definitely feeling VERY pregnant these days & no matter what I wear, there is no hiding this belly!  I shared some of my maternity fashion favorites in this post, these basics have saved me all winter & I will definitely be going back to them in future pregnancies.  I have also had my eye on a couple more Asos dresses for a few events coming up in the next few months, including our family maternity photos!  The brand of the dress above is Joie, it is non-maternity from TJ Maxx last year!

Best Moment This Week:  Celebrating a long, holiday weekend with my little family!!  I had to take off Friday to watch Waverly & we already had off Monday, a little extra rest and time together was very much needed & appreciated! :)

Miss Anything:  Maybe not pregnancy-related, but warm weather.  We had a little glimpse of it last weekend but it quickly turned cold again & I am O for over it!  At this point in my pregnancy with Waverly (which was two months later in the year), the weather was warm enough for daily walks & it was so helpful with staying active!  Let's just say that after a long winter of hibernating inside, me & my toddler sidekick are due for some time outdoors!

Movement:  I have started noticed patterns in her movement now, she is mostly awake right after I eat breakfast & then again later in the afternoons, but is usually always sleeping when I go to sleep at night.  Is it too much to hope this might be how our future will look like come June?!  Probably. ;)

Cravings:  I still love & hate food all at the same time!  In happy news, I can finally drink coffee again!!  I have still been going with decaf., but it's nice to have one in the mornings again after so long.

Queasy or Sick:  Feeling good, really good, & so thankful!

Looking Forward To:  Other than the holiday, we had a big weekend; Waverly Maye is officially transitioned to her big girl bed & I am beyond proud of her!  It went way better than I ever could I have hoped for, I will be sure to post details soon!  Now that big sister has officially passed down her crib to little sister (she woke up the first morning & said my baby sister slept in my crib, right?!), I am excited to be one step closer to finishing the nursery.  I can't wait to get more done in the next few weeks!

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend!
XO

  1. You look great, lady! I love the jacket with that dress, so pretty! I'm so over the cold, too. I got a taste of the 70s this weekend in Texas and man do I want those days ASAP!

    Glad that she sleeps when you sleep, that's important. Hope she keeps it up for you later when she's here. Stay warm, sweet friend!

  5. You look just stunning with the cutest tiniest bump! I'm so anxious about this baby's weight too! Liam was 8.3 and I'm hoping not to have a bigger baby this time!

  6. You look great! I'm over the cold too! I want to get outside with Noah again. Yesterday the wind was so brutal that even walking from the car was torture!

  7. We're planning on doing the crib to toddler bed transition in the next few weeks. Fingers crossed it goes that smoothly! Waverly handled that like a champ :)

  10. You are adorable. That bump is the cutest.
    I'm dying to feel the movements. Certainly that comes soon, right?!!
    Love and hate food - yep, I know exactly what you're talking about.
    And the coffee. Oh, I long for the day when coffee sounds good again.

  14. So beautiful! XOXO I still can't drink coffee. My pregnancy with Liam ruined it for me. Every time I take a sip now, I gag!
