Being Brickner : 39 Weeks

39 Weeks

Aaah, 39 weeks!  Such an anxious time, I am planner to a fault so the unknown of when she will actually be here kind of drives me crazy, but at the same time, it is so exciting & I am trying to embrace it!
Size of Baby Brickner:   A mini-watermelon, OMG!

Maternity Clothes:  Hanging on for dear life to the last articles of clothing that still fit, the struggle is real. ;) Thankfully, Pink Blush Maternity sent over the cutest pieces this week, it was the best mail day ever & is seriously so, so appreciated!  I am wearing one of the dresses above, & am so excited to share the other two looks very soon.  I was so impressed with everything they sent & best of all, all three pieces work now but will also work after baby girl gets here, & are perfect for nursing!


Best Moment This Week:  You guys, the sweetest thing, my almost three-year old fell asleep on me. We skipped her nap because we were out, she ended up exhausted so I brought her into the (new) nursery to hold while I rocked her, something we haven't done in way too long.  Of course I cried when I looked down & she was sound asleep, in the same chair we used to do that in all the time, just this time with much longer legs, lots more hair, & skinned knees from all the craziness she gets into.  I just sat & stared at her, while looking around at the new nursery for her baby sister, it was such a surreal feeling & I am so glad it happened.  As weird as it sounds, it almost made me officially feel like we were both "ready" for baby girl to get here now.

Miss Anything:  Oh, the same stuff.  There is a watermelon in my belly & I am super exhausted, but I know the end is near so I am going with it the best I can. :)

Movement:  We had another little scare with decreased movement, and ended up at labor & delivery to monitor baby girl who was being very lazy.  Thankfully she got better after a while, & we just considered it a trial run for the real thing!  She has been moving way better since then, & I am making sure to monitor it all the time.

Cravings:  Fruits, french toast, & salads.

Queasy or Sick:  Pretty much back to that first trimester nausea, but again, going with it since I know it will only be for a little while longer.

Looking Forward To:  Labor pains, bring it on! :)  And of course, meeting our little girl & seeing Waverly meet her for the first time.

Lastly, congratulations to Sarah Midles, the winner of the Dr. Browns giveaway!!  Sarah, be looking for an email from me to claim your prize!   Hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend!

  1. It is SO scary when these babies stop moving as much. Caleb and Vivian both did that to me a couple times! So exciting that baby girl could be here any day now. Woohoooo!:) Loving the dress - the colors are great on you!

  2. Could you be any more beautiful? You are so close! Finley stopped moving as much right at the end. I think it is because she just had no more room! Haha. What an exciting time for you guys:)

  9. oh what a sweet moment of rocking and sleeping. I miss when I could rock Aria to sleep. I wish that was an acceptable form of sleeping for ten more years. Aria is more of a bounce to bed kind of kid now. Not quite as cuddly.
    Such a beautiful dress! Sounds like the best mail day.

  13. oh man I know that last week before delivery can be so hard to wait on! I had both of my kids around 38 weeks, I could not imagine going to 42 weeks, that's a month longer being pregnant, crazy talk! So sweet that you rocked W to sleep. What a great memory to have of just being a Mom to 1.

  14. So close!!! eek! Oh, this is just so exciting! I hope you enjoy these last few days with Waverly. That little movement thing is so scary! My baby bean has done that to me a few times too, and it's horrible! I just lay and count and drink juice and ice water and count and pray ... and call the doctor for the one hundredth time. I'm glad she started wiggling around for you! And I know what you mean about none of the clothes fitting. It will be so nice to be a able to wear something that actually fits again :) Can't wait to hear/see when baby girl comes along!

  17. Any minute now! Such an exciting feeling :) And snuggling with a sleeping usually-on-the-go toddler is definitely one of the sweetest mom moments there is. Can't wait to see pics of the two of them together :)
