Diary Of A Pregnant Girl || Week 26 & 27

I know y'all have seen this picture already, but it's been raining for days here and I've been unable to get outside and take pictures so this is the most recent "belly shot" I have for now. It is awfully cute though :)

I feel like I say this every time, but I can't believe how quickly time is passing! It's like each week is over before it started. I'm trying to prepare myself now to accept that time is going to go just as quickly, if not quicker once Maddox is actually born. Que the tears!

Due Date | March 12th, 2015 (I'm starting to get a feeling he is going to debute in late February. I'm not sure why?)

Gender | BOY!

Name | Maddox Brian Mills

Size | Maddox is the size of a cauliflower and more than a foot long. Weighing in at around 2 1/4 lbs. And I can feel every bit of him!

Feeling | Antsy. I was talking with Hayley just the other day about how the antsy stage is starting to set in. Fortunately it seems to be normal upon talking to her and my sister-in-law. Unfortunately it doesn't sound like it passes until Baby is here. I guess I'll have to work on my patience now while M bakes away.

Hormones | No crazy woman hormones for me thank goodness.

Workouts | I'm excited to start this DVD series. I've heard great things from friends and other bloggers. Better late than never right?

Weight | +17lbs

Body | It's as if my I can feel those 2+ lbs weighing me down in my uterus. And when Maddox punches or kicks, they make me squirm a bit. Nothing painful, they are just stronger than before. He is also doing this new trick where he presses his head or butt out and pushes outwards so you see this large lump sticking out of my stomach. I like to massage it when he does that and I think he likes it because he tends to hang out there a bit.

Clothing | I've received some items from Pink Blush Maternity that I can't wait to share with you! My same ole' clothes were starting to get boring and a little tighter so I needed a change and I'm so head over heels in love with this company from the way they do business to the clothes they offer! Go check them out!

Sleep | This is not so good.... I struggle falling asleep. And then once I finally do I'm up at about 2:30 and 4:30am to pee and lay wide awake in bed. I swear I'm being prepared for early morning feedings. I told Jon instead of lying in bed wide awake I'm going to get up and get stuff done during the quiet wee hours of the morning.

Appetite | I really haven't had cravings lately, but I am having a hard time staying full. I eat well rounded meals, but not very much at one time because I feel like I'll pop! So I'm eating smaller meals more frequently.

Nursery | We took a break on the nursery during the holidays, but I did buy this super cute diaper bag -aka- not so diaper bag that I'm really stoked about! I've ordered this insert from Amazon to put inside just to make life a little easier when going to find something.

Missing | A glass of wine. Sitting by the Christmas tree makes me wish I could have a glass of wine in my hand to enjoy and unwind. Sparkling cider for me it is!

Fun Fact | Maddox can hear and recognize mine and Jon's voices! Jon has been talking to my belly non-stop. As you can see above he is one excited daddy :)

Best Moment of The Week | Maddox stopped kicking for 2 days. Not even the slightest movement - I think he was in a turkey coma! So once he started rearing back up again I was stopped being paranoid and relaxed a bit. This boy has his momma's heart wrapped around his teency-weency finger I tell ya.
