I went for my glucose test yesterday and it was nowhere near what I was expecting. I actually refrained from asking other mothers what it was like so I wouldn't get nervous. I have a serious fear of needles (like passing out fear) so I found it better to walk in blind than with a perception of what was about to happen. Turns out it's not that bad. I had to drink that well known sugar juice first thing in the morning. They only had orange left and to me it tasted like Orange Crush. I poured it over ice and downed it in my short 5 minutes. An hour later I was having my blood drawn and listening to that gorgeous sound of my son's heart beat, which I proudly have to add, was right on track! I will find out in a day or two the results so prayers are appreciated :)

Due Date | March 12th, 2015

Gender | BOY!

Name | Maddox Brian Mills

Size | Maddox is the size of two juice boxes stacked on top of each other and the weight of about four of them all together. Little squirt!

Feeling | Surrounded by love. Y'all made my day with your sweet comments on this post. I'm sending you all huge hugs :)

Hormones | Again, a tear-free week! Woohoo!

Workouts | Elliptical and light weights. No regime or strict schedule though.

Weight | +16lbs

Body | I'm starting to notice Maddox is hanging out a little higher than before, pressing hit feet into my ribcage on a regular basis. Not so comfortable, but totally cool to see him so high up.

Clothing | The norm. But I did buy some super cute clothes for my little man this week :) I couldn't resist!
 
Sleep | Maddox is still waking me up at 4:45am on the dot, but I'm sleeping really well and deep. I am starting to have constant dreams which I've heard is totally normal. I just don't remember any of them...

Appetite | It's super weird, but all of a sudden I've craved sweet potatoes and OJ? I don't question my cravings I just succumb to them.

Nursery | Ah I just love it. Even though the room is nowhere near finished, I just love spending time up there. I don't know how Jon is going to get me out of there once the glider is purchased. The changing table is put together and finished and I've been purchasing odds and ends for decorating.

Missing | Occasionally I'm craving a 3pm cup of steaming hot coffee. I think because the weather is so bitterly cold perhaps? So I'm trading that out for a cup of tea instead.

Fun Fact | Maddox's nostrils are open and he is practicing taking breaths now of amniotic fluid. Isn't that amazing?

Best Moment of The Week | Jon's hand gravitating to my tummy and rubbing it while watching tv on the couch. It's like a natural instinct and I find it so sweet watching him become a daddy.


Next Apt. | December 18th for a basic check-up.

  2. I didn't know we share the same fear of needles!? Mine is real, real bad. Like ridiculously bad! I had no idea that the glucose test consisted drawing blood. Crap! I knew you had to drink that drink. No wonder none of my friends never told me about that, ha!
