|Shirt & Similar Overalls|
Baby Brickner’s Size: A peach, our sweet peach!
Maternity Clothes: I got a couple of these Gap pure body shirts & really love them, super comfortable & stretchy enough that they will last me through most of this pregnancy. Also, I admit it, I was completely inspired by Mila Kunis’s maternity style, she wore overalls with her bump so I decided to go for it, just bought them a couple sizes up so I can keep expanding them as the belly expands! They might be THE most comfortable thing I have ever worn. Another plus, my mom was with me & said she remembers wearing them the entire time she was pregnant with me, which just makes them feel special. 🙂
Sleep: I finally feel like I am starting to get a little energy back, which pretty much makes me feel like a million dollars at this point! I still napped both weekend days while Waverly was sleeping (one day with her, those are the best!), but other than that, haven’t been fighting to keep my eyes nearly as much as I have been. Still, by the time 8pm rolls around, it is definitely time for bed. Things are crazy our way. 😉
Best Moment This Week: Waverly & I have had some really great afternoons, with a little pep back in my step I felt so much better (plus way less mom guilt) with some extra energy to play with her. We painted, baked blueberry muffins, did our nails, & managed to fit in a play date with another little girl her age. My kind of week. Also, I even made dinner a couple of nights. Seriously, there were moments that I wasn’t sure if I would ever make dinner again. So that was a serious win.
Miss Anything: My normal appetite, free from these crazy aversions that I have had both pregnancies. I am always hungry, but most things sound awful, even things that are my favorite foods not pregnant. Yet bring me all the carbs you want, the one food group that has gotten me through the past 12 weeks!
Movement: I am convinced that I am feeling this babe at night, it’s like a wiggling sensation & my favorite EVER! It’s always on the same side of my belly, which is the side that we always find the baby’s heartbeat on when we use our doppler. (We have one my mom bought us from my first pregnancy, a similar one can be found here!).
Cravings: Still all carbs. Also, it’s crazy how thirsty I am, drinking water all day long & still wanting more.
Queasy or Sick: Definitely not 100% me yet, but slowly getting there & I could not be happier! Bring on the second trimester!!
Looking Forward To: Thanksgiving! So excited for a couple days off work to spend with the family & then some shopping on Black Friday. I will definitely be making a couple for purchases for Waverly plus also, a couple gender-neutral ones for her baby brother or sister!
Hope you had a great weekend, happy holiday week!
