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!
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
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!
