So I know this is post numero dos this week of pregnancy updates, but now I am all caught up and once a week, Friday consistency can begin again.

Also can I just apologize for the grainy, indoor picture!? It's been raining and flurrying outside for the past two days and I'm not about to stick my booty out there for a photoshoot! Nope. Not happening.
Due Date | March 12th, 2015

Gender | BOY!

Name | Maddox Brian Mills

Size | Maddox is 8 1/2 inches long and over a pound and a half now! And gaining a steady 6oz a week now. Holy cow - I may start feeling like one!

Feeling | Incredible! Y'all may have seen this video I post on Instagram yesterday of Maddox having a dance party in my belly. I was so happy to finally be able to catch him on video and share it with everyone! He is quite the active one I tell ya.

Hormones | I did a wayyy better job of controlling my hormones this week. If they are even possible to control? No tears shed this week :)

Workouts | After that 5k on Sunday I decided running wouldn't be happening again while pregnant. It's just not for me. So I'm sticking with the elliptical and light weights. No regime or strict schedule though.

Weight | +11lbs. This is something I'm going to have to learn to embrace.As a woman I've always had a love / hate relationship with the scale and watching the number increase steadily now is even more difficult to adjust to. Instead of seeing it as a bad thing I need to be grateful my baby boy is growing at a healthy and steady rate.

Body | I have the occasional lower back / tailbone pain, but it comes and goes and it's nothing extremely painful.

Clothing | Surprise! Nothing has changed... maternity jeans, leggings and dresses. Someone did ask me if I've bought larger shirts and the answer is no. I am still wearing size small, but they are fitting snug, which is fine by me because I love showing off my baby bump :)
 
Sleep | Sleeping through the night and sometimes later than I prefer in the morning. My sleep is deep man and I'm digging it while I can!

Appetite | I have started to get a bit of a sweet tooth lately. Dark chocolate milky ways don't stand a chance in my presence.

Nursery | ALL of the paining is complete! The room is freshly painted and now the closet is too! The shelves have to be put back up in the closet and then I will begin the process of making cute dividers and organizing baby clothes into sizes! I got the changing table in the mail yesterday and I'll begin putting that together this weekend and putting all the furniture into place. I'm only lacking the glidder now. I won't be sharing the nursery until it's complete. I'm a total tease, I know.

Missing | Nothing.

Fun Fact | Maddox's face is formed and looking like that sweet little baby I can't wait to cuddle. His noes, cheeks, thighs, and toes don't stand a chance! 

Best Moment of The Week | Seeing Maddox kick from the outside! Pregnancy is the greatest gift!

Next Apt. | November 20th for my glucose test.

  3. Sometimes I want to comment on pics of pregnant women and say "you're glowing" but it always sounds weird. I'm just gonna go for it and tell you that you're glowing and not care if it sounds weird. Because I can't think of any other words that quite describe it. You just look so happy and excited and you are a gorgeous mama-to-be! Pregnancy looks amazing on you! XO

  10. During pregnancy, you should avoid carrying heavy things or walking for long distances, which may be harmful for you and for the health of your baby. So, it's more advisable for pregnant women to browse for their shopping needs in the comfort of their own homes online. Just Found Out Im Pregnant
