Happy New Year and cheers to 2015, babes! I can't believe we are in the single weeks countdown and this is the year I have a baby! 9 weeks and 6 days until my due date! Eeeek!

I'm going to narrow down these posts a bit since we are coming to the end. I'll continue to share every two weeks and hit the main points of my pregnancy.

Due Date | March 12th, 2015

Gender | BOY!

Name | Maddox Brian Mills

Size | The size of a coconut and about to head into a major growth spurt! Over 16" long and 3 1/3lbs.

Feeling/Body | As soon as I hit 30 weeks I felt like my pregnancy went a little downhill. Sciatic nerve pain in my lower back and tailbone has increased and it makes it really hard to walk or sit. A heating bad and a pillow under my bum has been the only relief. Plus hubby rolls a tennis ball on my back which really helps a lot too. Acid reflux and heartburn are a daily struggle after each meal and Tums just aren't fitting the bill anymore. I've been given advice of other options to take such as Zantac, but I really think I'm just going to fight through because I don't like taking anything at all really. (I'm that weirdo).

The third trimester is really overwhelming. I feel anxious because I know the days are numbered now before we meet our baby boy! Plus I have a checklist a mile long to complete within the next 5-9 weeks. And I am starting to feel like I'm going to be pregnant forever! Don't get me wrong, I love this whole process, but being real, the third trimester is testing my patience!

Hormones | No tears shed this week!

Weight | +20lbs, but I'm sure I've gained more from the holidays. I'll find out at my doctor apt this morning.

| Very rare these days. Getting comfortable is getting harder and harder, but I think this is good. Mad man is preparing me for mommy-hood and waking up every few hours :)

Nursery | It's really coming together! Jon and I got the crib painted, which was a huge chore. Now we need to get bookshelves and hang pictures. Shop for a few odds and ends and complete the closet. It's really coming together. I can't wait to share with y'all! I'm having a baby shower next weekend in NC and I can't wait to see all my friends from back home :)

Fun Fact | Maddox is sucking his thumb in my womb! So much so he may even have a callus on his thumb when he's born. Crazy!

Best Moment of The Week | Jon placing first place in his 5k on New Year's Day because he found out the first place winner received a free one hour massage. Best part is, he gave it to me!!! :) :) :) What a husband I have!

Next Apt. | Today for a basic check-up and to start talking about our birth plan . I can't believe it!

  1. You look SO good. Love that outfit mama!

  2. I can't believe how far you are already! I mean, I've been following the countdown, but you're in single digit weeks!!! I've had mild lower tailbone pain most of my pregnancy so I'm a-hoping and praying it doesn't worsen in the coming weeks. And heartburn?! Shoo... Praying for the discomfort to ease up!!

  5. I can't believe you're in your third trimester already - I feel like you just announced that you were pregnant! Have so much fun at your baby shower!

  6. You look pretty incredible for your third trimester and all that pain that you're enduring! I suppose it's all worth it for the end result though, right? :) So sweet that your hubby gave you his massage - he's a keeper!

  7. It's getting SO close now! You look amazing. I can't wait to see the nursery reveal!

  8. That's so awesome that he won first place, even better you get a massage!! Eeeek! oooh a baby shower!! Yayyy! Maybe Tamara, Nicole, & I can come crash it to see you! Juuuust kidding!! That's so exciting!! I'm sure y'all will get lotssss of stuff!!

  9. Ah! It's getting so close! I just know you are gonna do a fabulous job :) And how very sweet for Jon to give you his massage. When my mom was pregnant with my little sister, she had a lot of trouble with her tailbone and found a place that did prenatal massages. For the last couple of months of her pregnancy, she went weekly and it really helped her! Hope your massage gives you some relief!

  10. Anxiety is TOTALLY normal dude, especially for a first time mom! You are about to welcome a new baby into the world! Heck, I am anxious!!! SO BAD. I feel so unprepared (even though we are fine lol) and I am just like...HE IS COMING ANY DAY NOW.

  11. (I hit enter before I was ready!) Anxiety is totally normal and you will be ok. BUT I DO RECOMMEND doing things that help get rid of the anxiety. For me, that is getting his nursery done. That's a BIG stressor for me for some reason. Which is weird because he won't even be IN there till he is like...3 months old. But it's a stress that I can get rid of, so do what you can to help yourself out. The rest of it, just pray and pray a lot!

  12. So many of these little updates are identical to mine that are going up on Monday, haha! My acid reflux has gotten tremendously worse lately--even to the point that my Zantac is no longer managing it. I also feel like my to-do list is So long and that we have so little time left! I know some people probably think I'm crazy for getting some stuff in order, but I'm really starting to feel the crunch!

  13. interesting about your tailbone! i experience that nerve pain and very strong acid reflux now ...... and i'm not pregnant. makes me nervous for one day when i am!

  14. well you are just the absolute cutest!
