Aaah, 39 weeks! Such an anxious time, I am planner to a fault so the unknown of when she will actually be here kind of drives me crazy, but at the same time, it is so exciting & I am trying to embrace it!
Size of Baby Brickner: A mini-watermelon, OMG!
Maternity Clothes: Hanging on for dear life to the last articles of clothing that still fit, the struggle is real. 😉 Thankfully, Pink Blush Maternity sent over the cutest pieces this week, it was the best mail day ever & is seriously so, so appreciated! I am wearing one of the dresses above, & am so excited to share the other two looks very soon. I was so impressed with everything they sent & best of all, all three pieces work now but will also work after baby girl gets here, & are perfect for nursing!
Best Moment This Week: You guys, the sweetest thing, my almost three-year old fell asleep on me. We skipped her nap because we were out, she ended up exhausted so I brought her into the (new) nursery to hold while I rocked her, something we haven’t done in way too long. Of course I cried when I looked down & she was sound asleep, in the same chair we used to do that in all the time, just this time with much longer legs, lots more hair, & skinned knees from all the craziness she gets into. I just sat & stared at her, while looking around at the new nursery for her baby sister, it was such a surreal feeling & I am so glad it happened. As weird as it sounds, it almost made me officially feel like we were both “ready” for baby girl to get here now.
Miss Anything: Oh, the same stuff. There is a watermelon in my belly & I am super exhausted, but I know the end is near so I am going with it the best I can. 🙂
Movement: We had another little scare with decreased movement, and ended up at labor & delivery to monitor baby girl who was being very lazy. Thankfully she got better after a while, & we just considered it a trial run for the real thing! She has been moving way better since then, & I am making sure to monitor it all the time.
Cravings: Fruits, french toast, & salads.
Queasy or Sick: Pretty much back to that first trimester nausea, but again, going with it since I know it will only be for a little while longer.
Looking Forward To: Labor pains, bring it on! 🙂 And of course, meeting our little girl & seeing Waverly meet her for the first time.
