15 Weeks

Baby Brickner’s Size:  An apple!  The belly continues to grow by the day (or the hour?!), one of my students walked in after Thanksgiving break, looked straight at my belly & said “you got huge!”. Teenagers, it’s hard to think I will have at least a couple of those of my own one day. 😉

Maternity Clothes:  I took advantage of Black Friday & Cyber Monday to stock up on a few Asos maternity dresses for the holiday season & beyond, I am always obsessed with everything I get from there so I feel like it’s worth it.  Also in fashion news, me & my pregnancy brain somehow misplaced my new Gap maternity leggings.  Then me & my pregnancy hormones seriously almost shed tears, those babies are so comfy, I consider them gold.  Fingers crossed they show up soon!

Best Moment This Week:  Waverly looked down at my belly the other day & said, “that’s my baby”, while giving it a kiss!  I could have died, I cannot wait to see this girl with her baby brother or sister!!  Also, we have had lots of holiday fun lately, big sister (& her sunglasses!) wanted to jump in a few bump-dates this week.  We fit in a couple of pictures before going to the tree farm over the weekend.

Miss Anything:  Sleep.  I was so exhausted throughout the first trimester that I slept like a rock every night, yet now that it’s to the point I can no longer sleep on my back, I am having major issues (I am SUCH a back sleeper!).  I use my pregnancy pillow most nights, but it’s still so hard to get comfortable.  I keep waking up halfway on my back & freaking out!

Movement:  Still mainly flutters, but I have felt a few during the day now!  It’s just my favorite, I can’t wait for more & more!!! 🙂

Cravings:  Food in general, especially during the first part of the day, I am starving every couple of hours.  I finally have been able to add a few sweets back into my nightly routine, yet still mostly going for salty!  And totally random, but I love ketchup.  On everything.

Queasy or Sick:  Still feeling better, for the most part!!  I still have a few moments here & there but feel like a whole new woman after the previous couple of months!

Looking Forward To:  Our GENDER ultrasound scheduled for this week, we are hoping this babe plays along & we can find out if Waverly Maye is getting a baby brother or sister!!!!!  From day one, both my husband & I have had the same feeling what this babe is, then the past week, I have completely changed my mind.  Bottom line, we have no idea. 😉 We truly will be beyond thrilled either way, I just can’t wait to know, to be able to share it with Waverly, to shop, & to start nursery planning!

Wishing you all a lovely week ahead!

    You are sooooo cute! and I hope Mia loves my belly when I'm pregnant again someday!
    I totally understand the sleep part! I am SUCH a stomach sleeper so that was painful for me to try an fall asleep on my sides, ugh! ha ha. Then I turned into a back sleeper while pregnant, it was so stressful for me! I finally had a talk with my dr because I kept waking up multiple times a night a night on my back- he told me I was finnnnnnne. That my body would stop doing that when it becomes a problem, same with stomach sleeping! So I stopped freaking out and he was right! Once I got to a certain size I didn't even WANT to sleep on my belly or back, my body stopped craving that. BUT if you stack a few pillows behind you (so that you're elevated) you should be totally fine on your back!

    So fun finding out the gender! 🙂 And I totally can understand tears over the GAP leggings…I just ordered 2 more pairs and I could totally give birth anyday now, but you best believe I will be wearing them even when I'm not pregnant because they are just so comfy!!

    You get to find out the gender this week?! That's the earliest I've heard of! How exciting for you all!! And I hope you find those leggings. I remember loving the only pair of leggings I had when I was pregnant with Emerson. What makes leggings so comfy when you are preggers?!
