Size of Baby Brickner: The size of a turnip, my pregnancy book says she is two pounds & can open her eyes, getting so big, so quickly!
Maternity Clothes: Lots of comfy clothes this week, since it has been absolutely freezing & we have had lots of time at home! The striped top above is actually a maternity dress from Asos, I just pulled it up & gathered it, I’m hoping it will get warm enough to actually wear it as a dress before I deliver in June!
Best Moment This Week: My unexpected week off of work & at home with Waverly Maye, thanks to the snow! We definitely had our moments after being stuck inside for so long (cabin fever is totally a thing with a two-year old), but overall, it was so much fun having so much extra time together!
Miss Anything: Being able to play (physically) with Waverly like I used to. I wasn’t going to post about this, because honestly, the whole situation scared the hell out of me & really upset me, but then I figured that I couldn’t be the only pregnant mom of a toddler that this has ever happened to, Last week Waverly jumped on me, specifically my belly, with ALL of her weight. She was completely just playing & didn’t mean to at all, but it was so hard that it took my breath away for a couple of minutes. I felt our baby girl move A LOT right after it happened (she was probably shocked), but then not again for over three hours. We were getting ready to leave for the hospital to check on her when my friend (thankfully) reminded me to try to drink apple juice to wake her, so I did, & she immediately started kicking within a couple of minutes. We have since been to the doctor & everything is fine, we are so thankful! I know it has to be hard for Waverly to understand that we can’t play exactly like we used to, especially as I get bigger & it gets even harder, and that makes me sad for her. Yet she loves her baby sister so much already, I know all of this will be WELL worth it for all of us!!
Movement: Thankfully, YES! Lots! 🙂
Cravings: I am loving Chinese food lately, & granola bars. Maybe together?!
Queasy or Sick: Feeling GOOD!
Looking Forward To: A dinner out this weekend to celebrate my good friend’s birthday, & one of my other best friends had her baby girl this week! Waverly hasn’t met the baby yet since I didn’t want to bring her to the hospital, but I can’t wait for her to meet her in person! Also, were our babes ever that little?!!!! It is SO hard for me to think of Waverly that size, even though it was only two years ago.
