13 Weeks

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!

 I realized that I never shared Waverly’s reaction to being a big sister.  With so much to update on over the beginning of our pregnancy, I didn’t be to be overwhelming, yet she is already SO excited & it is the sweetest.  She definitely knows she is going to be a big sister, though she thinks the babe is in her belly.  She has randomly told a few people that she was a big sister (before we were ready to tell anyone), & will be sure to remind me every once in a while.  In case I forgot. 😉
Nothing makes me happier than thinking about her in this role, I know she is going to be a little rock star.

Hope you had a great weekend, happy holiday week!

    Oh my gosh, you are too cute!! Sounds like a great week! I'm SO glad you're getting some energy back, yay!!

    You look fabulous, lady! Glad that some energy is coming back and hooray for fun times with your lil girl. I love lil kids explaining babies, it's too cute.

    You are looking great in those overalls!!! It's so funny because so many of your symptoms are EXACTLY like mine. I feel like I cannot get enough water….it's so weird! I even want it instead of coffee, which never happens! Also, when I lie (lay?) on my right side, I can totally feel the baby, and that's the side my doctor always find the heart beat. I am so glad you are feeling better and have energy!! It's so nice to be enjoying pregnancy (and life) again! xoxo

    You look so cute!!! love it!

    So cute!!! I love W's reaction to being a big sister. I've heard of kids doing that before where they think the baby is in their belly. Too funny!!

    This could practically be my post! All the aversions, all the carbs, all the water + finally starting to feel better. Yay!!! Maybe that means we both have sweet boys growing in there 🙂

    You look so cute in those overalls! I tried some on at Gap (I'm 22 weeks pg) and looked ridiculous!

    You look adorable and if anyone can rock the overalls (while pregnant, nonetheless) it's you! You look fab! I swore I could feel my babe #2 very early on, too! Like 14ish weeks, I think! Braxton Hicks started around then also. 🙂 Happy Thanksgiving to you and your growing fam!

    You look ADORABLE! I love the overalls! I LIVED in those Gap shirts during both my pregnancys. I just threw a comfy sweater over them each day 🙂

    Its so great when you randomly start having more energy again and less aversions. Just in time for the holiday rush. 🙂 I felt this baby around 12 weeks too. It's so crazy how early it happens. I thought it sounded so crazy to be feeling it so early. Surely I was delusional, but nope! Definitely movement. You look amazing girlfriend!
