Size of Baby Brickner: A head of romaine lettuce, one more week until full-term! :)
Maternity Clothes: Anything that will fit & is comfortable. I'm not going to lie, I know it's a long time coming, but I walked by a pair of jeans the other day & got really excited to actually be able to use a zipper at some point in the months to come!
Best Moment This Week: It's been a really exciting week, we had our baby-que over the weekend, it was so much fun to see our family & friends and celebrate before we officially grow to a family of four! My mom, sister & other family members did such a great job planning it for us, I will be sure to share pictures soon! We also attended a shower for our friends who are expecting their second baby boy, it is actually my husband's business partner & they are due only one week after us!
Miss Anything: Just feeling normal, pregnancy symptoms are at an all-time high. I have been having so many braxton hicks contractions, & just some cramping in general. I'm still savoring her in my belly though, I know before long I will have to share her & I really love having her all to myself!
Movement: We had another non-stress test this week, which I was thankful for, I will never turn away a opportunity to check on the baby & to make sure she is growing in there as she should! A couple of weeks ago I had a few days where I didn't feel her much, so they gave me the test & then decided to give me another, just to be on the safe side. Since then, I have been feeling her more than ever (significant movements, feet & hands!), and then she moved a ton while we were monitoring her. :) I also had four contractions show up during the test, they were small & my nurse said that was very normal for 35 weeks, but I never had any show up, ever, with Waverly, so I'm hoping it may mean something!! I am really crossing my fingers I don't have to be induced this time, only time will tell but my intuition definitely tells me that she may come before her due date! And now that I said that I will have to eat my words when I am 41 weeks pregnant. ;)
Cravings: My stomache gets full so quickly right now, so just lots of small meals each day!
Queasy or Sick: Neither, just tired & big.
Looking Forward To: A few weeks of relaxing at home with Waverly, & also, so excited for Mother's Day this weekend, our last holiday before baby day!! And speaking of, for those of you who follow me on Instagram, I am hosting a BIG giveaway with some fellow mamas (believe me, it's a really good one!). It will be announced tonight at 9pm (eastern time), so stay tuned!
Happy first week of May!
