We made it, ten weeks left & on to counting down in the single digits! :)
Size of Baby Brickner: A cabbage. My book says she is about three pounds & will gain half a pound each week from here on out. I love that she is getting so big & can't wait to see her sweet face soon!
Maternity Clothes: My parents were so sweet to buy me a dress this week for our spring maternity pictures, it's from Asos & I love it, can't wait to share it soon! I am hoping that this will be my last maternity fashion purchase for this pregnancy, though we definitely don't plan on this being our last baby, I kind of hate spending money on maternity clothes, especially during the third trimester. My biggest fashion tip (that I feel like I did a whole lot better with this time around), is to buy as a little "maternity" stuff as possible & instead try to get by with things bought in bigger sizes that you love, that still make you feel like you, & that you can wear again later.
Best Moment This Week: We haven't officially told Waverly her sister's name, though I really want to, only because she repeats everything these days. My husband & I refer to her by name all of the time though (obviously when Waverly is around), I just didn't think she had caught on since we always call her "baby sister" or "sissy" when talking with her about it. Then the other day we were playing with sidewalk chalk & I wrote Waverly's name on the street, & right after she asked me to write her sister's name (with her actual name), like it was was nothing. Not only did it confirm that she officially picks up on everything, but it was the sweetest sound coming out of her mouth. I cannot wait to see these girls together!
On a side note, I know it's annoying (especially to those around us), that we haven't shared her name. It has been way harder to keep quiet this time, since with Waverly we were between two names & this time we have been sure for months. Honestly, I love a good surprise & if I was cool enough to wait to find out the gender I would, so I feel like this is the next best thing. Also, I know both my husband & I love the name, that it fits our family & what we want for our daughter, and that really is all that matters to us. Maybe it sounds bad, but we really don't want to hear advice or thoughts on her name, & know that if we wait until her sweet little self is here, we won't have to.
Miss Anything: Feeling really good this week, tired by the end of the day, but good! :)
Movement: ALL the time!
Cravings: Ice cream & colored sprinkles, maybe because it's getting warmer out?!
Queasy or Sick: I had my glucose test this week (& passsed!), so I know others can relate, that drink made me absolutely nauseous. Yet other than that, no complaints!
Looking Forward To: Our Easter Egg Hunt this weekend & other holiday celebrations with Waverly Maye! Also, this is the last two weeks of school before my SPRING BREAK, I am super excited to have a week off to spend quality time with my oldest girl & to get some more items checked off our to-do list!
Hope you all had a great weekend!
