Being Brickner : 28 Weeks

Tuesday, March 10, 2015

28 Weeks

We are officially in the THIRD trimester, & so, so excited to meet our newest baby girl in three months or less! :)


Size of Baby Brickner:  Our little lady is aout 2.5 pounds now, according to my book, & can dream, hiccup, & blink her little eyes!

Maternity Clothes:  You guys, I really hate jeans right now.  I can't decide what is worse, the dramatics of pulling them up (no one should have to see that) or walking around in them all day (which is really starting to cut off my circulation).  So I think it's time we part ways for a while, I am hoping that the weather will cooperate enough so I can rock mainly dresses & leggings from here on out!

Best Moment This Week:  Our monthly appointment!  My husband got to come at the last-minute, he tries to when he can but mostly is working at those times, so it was such a fun surprise to have him there!  We laugh because our friends, who go to the same doctor, just had their first baby & I would always run into them there.  Her husband was always with her, notepad in hand taking down every word, & I was the knocked-up girl all by myself rushing out to pick up my toddler. #secondchildproblems

Also, as we were leaving, they reminded me that I would have one more appointment in three weeks & then we were going to two-week appointments, then weekly appointments until she gets here. WHAT?!!  I really was shocked that I am far enough along for all this, I feel like I counted down for that moment with Waverly & then this time, hadn't even thought that it could be near!  That totally was a reality check kind of moment for me, an exciting one, but definitely a shocking one!

Miss Anything:  Getting up & down without losing my breath.  I'm pretty sure I said the same thing last week, but the struggle is REAL!  I am scared for when I am bigger.

Movement:  Oh yes, & Waverly finally got to feel it!  My belly moves up & down to the point where you can watch the dance party, it's the cutest!!  My husband said he came home from working overnight the other night/morning, I was sleeping but he could see & feel baby girl wide awake! :)

Cravings:  Yogurt, granola, potatoes, & chinese food.  I have been seriously dreaming of a date to the hibachi grill.

Queasy or Sick:  I am still having migraines often, some days are worse than others.  The pain is worth it, but I cannot wait to take my normal migraine medicine (which takes them away within minutes) after June!

Looking Forward To:  So many things! :)  Warmer weather, which we got a glimpse of this week, & the spring holidays that come with it, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, & Mother's Day!!  All of which I hope to make extra special since they will be our last as a family of three!  We also planned a small (very small) babymoon for over my spring break in a few weeks, we aren't going far or for long, but I am really looking forward to some alone time with the hubs before we are parents to TWO baby girls!

PS - Sorry this update is one day later than usual, as I feared, Waverly passed down the flu to me.  It has been brutal (to say the least), we are hoping the worst is finally behind us.  Hope you all had the best weekend & a great start to the week!

  1. Oh no! I am so sorry that you got sick, sweet Mama:( Hope you are starting to feel better now. Being pregnant and sick is just the worst. And I totally feel you on the maternity jeans thing. Every time I get up from sitting down/driving in the car, etc, I have to adjust the panel on the maternity jeans. And it is so annoying!!! I am so looking forward to a continuation of the warmer weather we've been having so I can start wearing my spring maxi dresses and skirts! So much more comfy:) Welcome to third trimester!!! Loving your adorable bump:)

  2. Oh I'm so sorry to hear you aren't feeling great! I was pregnant during the summer with noah and LIVED in dresses! The idea of pants (other than yoga pants) depressed me... So constricting on the belly! And dresses were just so much cooler to wear in the heat! And they make super cute dresses too :)

  8. Your bump is just beautiful in that dress! Hope you recover from the flu soon! I had the stomach flu over christmas and could barely handle throwing up while a baby moved like crazy in my belly. Such a bizarre feeling!

  12. Goodness, Momma! Get well soon! How so exciting that you've entered the 3rd trimester! Eek! It made me do a double take at my calendar! Haha!

  15. I'm so sorry to hear that you got sick! Hopefully you are feeling better now and those germs will stay away from you and your family. As much as I love jeans, and still wear them, they are getting to be a pain in the booty. Every time I stand or sit I have to adjust the panel and the pants a smidgen. I just want to sit and stand without having to worry about that little bit of it. I am looking froward to warmer temperatures too and the promise of [hopefully fitting into] skirts ... and maybe a maxi dress, I still haven't found one that I love yet. You are looking so cute! I hope this week goes well for you!

  16. Third trimester? Whaaaat? Appointments every other week? Whaaaat?! You're getting so close, and looking gorgeous as ever.
    I'm prone to migraines and my doctor Rx'd a medication that's ok during pregnancy (Sumatriptan). If yours are getting really frequent, and debilitating perhaps your doctor can write you and Rx, too.

  17. Jim just told me the same thing last night about how I was asleep but she was kicking him. Crazy! Lol.

    I'll probably just steal your cute dress and leggings style ideas :) it's kind of foreign territory for me!

    And yes, tomorrow is my last monthly appt. from now on it's every two weeks! What the what?!

  19. I hope you are all healthy again! No fun! I totally get the #secondchildproblems...Chad came to every appointment with Cam, and now, I sometimes forget to tell him that I have an appointment until the appointment is over! He does make it to the "big" ones, but otherwise, I feel like I can just pass along the info. ;) I hope you're having a good week!!
