We are HALFWAY THERE!!! Part of me feels like I have been pregnant forever, then the other part of me cannot believe how close we are actually getting, & is slightly freaking out over everything we need to do! Mostly though, we are getting more excited to meet this little lady everyday!
Size of Baby Brickner: A mango, getting bigger!
Oh yes, all maternity pants or leggings but really trying to make non-maternity shirts & dresses work. I am always on the hunt for anything stretchy or cute cardigans that I can wear after she is born. (The dress above is from Zara
last season, non-maternity, I love it so much pregnant or not!).
Best Moment This Week: Waverly is going through a phase where she insists on me rocking her every night to sleep, we used to read a book before bed but lately, she would rather turn off the light to have me rock her in the chair with a blanket covering both of us. It is obviously (more than) fine by me, by far one of my favorite times of the day!! The other night, while we were rocking, she put her hand on my belly & said “baby sister”, which she does sometimes, but overall, is not really that interested. Then she asked so many questions about her, where she was going to go when she got here, when she would be here, & what she would do. The absolute sweetest, the thought of these two little girls together could literally make my heart BURST!
Are you allowed to miss something that hasn’t happened yet?! Kind of on the same note, I have had lots of thoughts lately on cherishing these last moments with Waverly as an only child. As over the moon as we are about adding to our family, & as much as I know we are giving all of us, a small part of me will miss her being an only child. I am sure these hormones aren’t doing me any favors. 😉
Movement: It’s still so random when I feel her lately, sometimes after I eat & then other times only at night when I am laying down. I sometimes freak out when I haven’t felt her, but need to remember that she is still so small!
Cravings: Finally craving some healthier foods, the french fries I had at the beginning no longer are very appealing, thank goodness. Salads & fish sound so, so good!!
Queasy or Sick: Not much nausea, some cramping which I think (& hope) is her growing in there!
Looking Forward To:
Our big ultrasound this morning!!!! My mom & sister are coming, which is so much fun because they have never been to one with me before! Crossing my fingers for a healthy baby, & counting down the minutes until we see her sweet face again! 🙂
And in celebration of a big milestone week, a look back on the belly’s growth so far!! It has definitely popped, it’s hard to think what it will look like 20 weeks from now!
