14 Weeks

H&M Hat, Sweater & Maternity Jeans
Baby Brickner’s Size:  A lemon!  According to my pregnancy app, the baby will double in size this week. And according to me, the belly may have already doubled as well. 😉

Maternity Clothes:  I am all about leggings right now, these Gap maternity ones are amazing & a pair of preggo leggings are on their way!  I have been pairing them with long tanks & cardigans or sweaters, it has been freezing here so I feel like that’s the best option.  I am showing so much faster this time than with Waverly, so I am trying to figure out my game plan to dress the bump in the fall/winter months, something I really didn’t have to think about before. #firstworldproblems

Best Moment This Week:  Definitely Thanksgiving!  I loved spending extra time with our sweet family, watching another holiday through Waverly’s little eyes, & of course, lots of yummy food.  It’s so much fun to think about another babe to add to all of the fun next year!

Miss Anything:  Honestly, not much!  With both pregnancies I haven’t even missed a glass of wine or a cold beer, both are total aversions & even the smell of them make me sick.  I guess that’s a good thing.  Not sure if I will change my mind in a couple months … 😉

Movement:  About the same as last week, the random, cutest “wiggles” at night when I am laying down.  I am still really looking forward to more movement, which I know can’t be long, in our latest ultrasound our babe was throwing its hands & feet around everywhere!  Something tells us that he/she is not going to be any less wild than big sister!

Cravings:  Food, in general, & all salty still.  I remember this with Waverly too (especially in the beginning), I get so hungry that I feel like if I don’t eat, I may just fall over.  It’s like I can never, ever eat enough.

Queasy or Sick:  For the most part, the nausea is subsiding & I couldn’t be happier!!  If I eat anything sweet, I still get the worst taste in my mouth so I am trying my best to just stay away. Which can be hard. Because did I mention that I am always hungry?!

Looking Forward To:  The holiday season!!  I looked at my calender the other day & could not believe how close Christmas actually is.  We have so much planned, I got Waverly’s advent calender set up over the weekend & know she is going to have so much fun with it this year.  Also, a lot of me wants to make it extra-special since I know this will be our last Christmas as a family of three.

And the cutest, lately everyone keeps asking Waverly Maye if she is hoping for a brother or sister.  At first, she always answered sister, which we couldn’t decide was because she actually knew that a sister meant a girl like her, or if she just associated that with us telling her she is going to be a big sister.  Then for a while, she answered “brudda”.  Now, it’s ALWAYS a “baby bogger”, our dog’s name.  So much so that I am starting to think she is going to be legitimately disappointed when she walks into the hospital room in June & I didn’t give birth to a small dog.

    So glad that your nausea is subsiding! Getting to that point was the absolute BEST thing ever! And yay for feeling baby move:) So exciting! My little nugget just started moving within the last week or so, and I have been loving it so much. Can't believe that we will both have little babies this time next year. What a blessing!:) As for gender guesses – well, I'm going to say with 100% certainty that I think it won't be a dog, lol! It's too early to tell, but I'm thinking girl. Maybe??? You look like you'll carry higher, and you know what the old wives tales say…But honestly can't wait for you to find out!!! Either way will be SO fun!

    Hahaha! Oh sweet Waverly! In the years to come she will be VERY grateful you didn't give birth to a dog (weirdest mom EVER?) even if she's disappointed at first 🙂 so cute! You look amazing, Ash!!

    You look fantastic! Maternity leggings are the BEST invention of all time and I loved them every second of my pregnancies.

    How fun that Waverly is excited about the gender! We ask Liam but he has yet to grab the girl/boy concept. He doesn't even really know which of his friends are boys or girls, ha!

    You are so cute! And is it bad that I am not even preggers but super jealous of your maternity jeans? They just sound so comfy!

    hahah…aww, Waverly!! Makes you wonder what's going through her little mind. You look amazing, mama!! Hope you continue feeling better. 🙂

    So cute! Loving these updates the second time around! I don't know how you have time to do it all!

    I love this! A baby bogger. Though I'm sure she'll be even happier when she sees a tiny little baby brother or sister! You are looking so good! I love these updates 🙂

    HAHAHA! She is going to be very disappointed! 😉 I will say, somehow kids know… When we first got pregnant I would ask Charli "is the baby in mommy's belly a boy or a girl?" she would answer "girl" every time. Then at one of my appointments, I had to bring her and after they did the ultrasound to check on things she said "boy" from then on… It was crazy, and then we found out a few weeks later it was in fact a boy!

    Hahaha, I love that last line! I think Cam will be disappointed all around when we actually bring the baby home!! 🙂 You are looking great, and I am so happy that you are feeling better! Seriously…this growing more quickly thing is so true!! I am going to need a new winter coat soon!

    You are precious!!!! And I love that Waverly wants a baby bogger. :)))

    I absolutely love you top. I would agree about those leggings from the GAP!

    P.S. I'm hosting a Whole Foods Market & Diestel Turkey giveaway on my blog Ice Cream & French Fries . Have a great weekend!
