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!
