Size of Baby Brickner: A coconut, baby girl is growing & so am I! A sweet little girl at school the other day said, “wow, you look like you are going to pop”, it was the day after I got the favorite comment of pregnant ladies everywhere, “it’s gotta be any day now, right?”. No, actually five more weeks, thanks. 😉
Maternity Clothes: Dresses of all kinds, maxis are a go-to since my other dresses are getting shorter by the minute. I’m really not trying to be that scandalous pregnant girl, but the bump is just getting bigger & therefore, the dresses are getting smaller!
In other fashion news, I am super excited to be working with Rocksbox
, a website dedicated to borrowing jewelry before you buy it! Rocksbox insiders are sent a box of jewelry each month with the option to borrow, buy, or swap it at any time. I love, love the idea of this! I can sometimes be a indecisive shopper, especially when it comes to jewelry since I don’t wear that much of it, so I feel like buying it is a really big commitment. I was able to take a “style test” online before they sent me my first box, & ended up loving all three pieces that they sent me! I have worn this bracelet almost everyday since, it’s so versatile & I have gotten so many compliments.
I’m excited to share the other pieces very soon, the earrings ended up being perfect for my maternity photos! If you are interested, you can try it out yourself, sign up here

Best Moment This Week: Packing our hospital bags, putting baby girl’s first outfit in there was so exciting! I wondered if the feelings would be the same even though this is our second time doing all of this, yet they totally are (maybe even more since we know what to expect now). Waverly asked this week if her baby sister would be staying a while, “yes honey, forever.” Pure craziness.
Miss Anything: The same stuff, my body is literally a train wreck by the end of a long day. Sleep is hit or miss, the peeing thing really makes for an eventful night & I have never been good at falling back asleep once I am up. I do know, & remember well, this is all just preparing me for those newborn nights ahead!!
Movement: I had a day where I hadn’t felt her much, & of course I freaked out so I ended up with a non-stress test at my doctor’s office. Thankfully she moved during the test, especially after I drank some water & ate something. I have another test this afternoon just to be on the safe side, but of course I have felt her a ton since then, so I already feel so much better!
Cravings: Sweets all the way!!! Other than dessert, my appetite is so weird, trying to pick what I want to eat is still very much a challenge lately.
Queasy or Sick: A few migraines, but feeling good!
Looking Forward To: Am I allowed to say meeting baby girl yet?!! 🙂 Really though, our baby-que is this weekend & I am really excited to celebrate our newest addition with sweet family & friends, and so thankful for my mom, sister, & other family members who are helping plan this for us!
Happy week ahead!
