Last week was crazy with spring break, I didn’t get to post my 32 week update but did manage a picture so I thought I would share both updates today! I cannot even believe we only have seven weeks to go, time is going by faster than ever & we are getting more excited for our family to grow by the minute!
Size of Baby Brickner: A cabbage.
The time has come, pants & I have officially parted ways until after baby girl is born. It’s dresses all day, everyday, from here on out, I am so thankful for spring weather so I can actually do that! The dress above is a maxi dress from Target (last season, similar here
), non-maternity, it is so comfortable & stretchy, it’s one of my favorites!
Best Moment This Week: Celebrating our last big holiday as a family of three, it is so surreal to think that we will have two little girls to do all of these holiday traditions with next year!
Miss Anything: I’m thankful that my sciatica hasn’t worsened too much, it still goes in & out but I am still able to function! 🙂 What I miss most is being able to hold Waverly or keep up with her like I used to, she is going through a phase where she wants me to hold her often & I feel so bad when I can’t. Also, bending down to pick up toys off the floor might just be the most painful thing ever, sometimes I’m not sure I am going to make it back up.
Movement: Yes & love it!!!! Her movements seem to be slowing down some, I’m thinking she may possibly be running out of room in there?!
Cravings: Sweets mainly, strawberries are my favorite & I can’t get enough (which is so funny because that is the total opposite of how I felt first trimester!).
Queasy or Sick: Neither, feeling very tired by the end of the day but other than that, feeling good!
Looking Forward To: My mom & sister sent out the invitations this week for a celebration they are having for our little lady, it is a baby-q the first weekend of May! 🙂 I really didn’t feel like we needed a shower, especially since we are having another girl, but am excited that this baby will have a celebration all of her own, just like Waverly Maye did!!
Size of Baby Brickner: A coconut.
Maternity Clothes: I’m still wearing lots of dresses that can work after the baby is born, & love, love this one above from Forever 21. It’s so roomy that it still works for the belly but can definitely work after!
Best Moment This Week: We have had so many highlights this week, because of spring break I’ve gotten so much extra time with Waverly & have been able to get lots done around the house. My husband & I also had our “babymoon” (if I’m allowed to call it that?!), a night kid-free & then a day trip to Ikea!! We got a couple things for the nursery, for Waverly’s big girl room, & for the girls playroom! I’m excited to share progress soon!
Miss Anything: Just being mobile, I definitely think this pregnancy has been harder on my body than the first. I’m not sure if that’s just the nature of a second pregnancy or the fact that I’m running after a toddler, but my body just feels worn out right now.
Movement: Yes. my favorite!! 🙂
Cravings: Sweets for the win! I love eating them & feeling how much this little lady will move around after!
Queasy or Sick: Neither, but I have had the craziest heartburn this time around (especially lately), which I don’t remember ever having with Waverly.
Looking Forward To: Finishing some details in the nursery & pulling down all of the baby gear we have been storing!!! My maternity leave also begins soon, I’m hoping for a little rest & time with my oldest girl before life officially changes for all (four) of us!
Hope you all had a great weekend, we’ve had a busy week so I haven’t been able to comment as much as I normally like, but please know I am doing my best to keep up with everyone!
You look great as always, lady! Glad you were able to enjoy a baby moon with your husband! 🙂
I can imagine it's totally surreal to celebrate a holiday as the last one before your family size changes and a new member enters! You are looking wonderful tho!!
It really is crazy how quickly time flies the second time around! I'm already 15 weeks, what?! Time DRAGGED when I was pregnant with Mia, ha!
You didn't have heart burn with Waverly?! That is crazy lucky! I ate tums like they were goin' out of style! It's actually something I'm dreading this time around… I only ever get heart burn when I'm pregnant. (I seriously avoid eating certain foods because they SMELL like they could give me heart burn, ha ha!)
You look amazing in blue!
You are adorable! I can't believe how quickly these weeks are flying by!!!
You are just beautiful! The last part goes so fast! I'm so excited for you guys!
Baby-Q, I love it! And I can't wait to see the nursery!
Second pregnancy is definitely MUCH differ t then first! I just gave birth to twin girls almost 4 weeks ago and I have a 22 month old daughter. Even though it was twins which is its own ballgame in itself i think second pregnancy is just so much harder! My first I was active, energetic… Even took like a 2 mile walk the night before I went into labor. This time I could barely walk toward the end! Also so sad I wasn't able to pick up my daughter toward the end of the pregnancy and after as a had a c section. Obviously she can't understand why and it was just heartbreaking every time she would come to me and say "up." Good luck with the last weeks and enjoy your time with your big girl before your little lady gets here! Krista
You are still looking as FAB as ever!! Getting so close! Enjoy these last few weeks, as immobile and tired as you may be!
I have that dress for Target and love it too! It's SO comfy and I can totally see how it would be perfect for a bump too!
Yay for the baby moon! The baby-q idea is way too cute! Can't wait to see pictures! Enjoy the last few weeks, I'm sure they will fly by!
