Size of Baby Brickner: A pineapple!
Maternity Clothes: Oh yes, all the time! Even a few items I bought early on are starting to get tight on this big belly. The shirt above is from Target, hoping to get some use out of it now & then once baby girl is here!
Best Moment This Week: More Easter celebrating with Waverly, she is so much fun to do these kinds of things with right now! And we got a few new baby girl purchases, a pair of the sweetest moccasins & her take-home outfit! It’s getting real, friends.
Miss Anything: I really try not to be a complainer, especially when it comes to pregnancy since I feel beyond fortunate to have had two healthy pregnancies so far, but this week has been really challenging for my body. I woke up Monday morning with shooting pains down my right leg, I had a charlie horse that night (which I get often), so I thought it was a result of that or that I had just slept weird. Long story short, they never went away & by Tuesday they had only gotten worse. In addition to the pains, both my leg and foot were going numb on & off. It definitely seems to be a textbook case of sciatica, which I never got with Waverly, but apparently this baby girl has found a spot she loves right on a nerve. My doctor said that though it won’t affect the baby at all (which is ultimately what I care about most), it probably is here to stay & may continue to get worse, possibly even moving into the other leg. So far that has been the case, especially after being on my feet at work & then coming to chase after a toddler. I’ve had several moments where I really could hardly walk (& convinced myself I would be in a wheel chair before long), but then others that I felt lots better. So for now, I am taking it day by day & just feeling happy that baby girl is as healthy as ever!
Movement: Her movement hasn’t changed at all, lots of kicks & rolls, I love them all!
Cravings: I have a total sweet tooth lately, & the Easter candy is not helping it!
Queasy or Sick: Other than my leg issues, feeling good – no nausea & that makes me happy.
Looking Forward To: My spring break!! It officially kicks off this Friday & I am super excited! We have plans for a one-night babymoon, nothing crazy but just a little getaway while my parents keep Waverly overnight. We are also going to make a day trip to Ikea, it’s three hours away from us but we still need a dresser for the nursery & this one would be perfect! 🙂
