It seriously feels like it's been forever since I've written a pregnancy update. How odd it is that the time is actually flying, but seems to be moving like molasses in my mind? This seems to be the common struggle for pregnant women in their last trimester. I guess I just assumed because the first two trimesters flew by, the third wouldn't be any different. It turns out I was majorly wrong. But I am oh so close and it's still been really exciting!

Due Date | March 12th, 2015

Gender | BOY! <-- click to see our gender reveal.

Name | Maddox Brian Mills

Size | The size of a large cantaloupe! Over 20" long and 6 1/2 lbs.

Feeling/Body| I've been having Braxton Hicks contractions so that has made me even more anxious because every time I get one I think, "could this be it!?". Whew lawdy it's a journey. My body feels stretched to the max. It's so tight and pulled I have a really hard time getting comfortable. And Maddox's movements are way more visible now. I see his feet constantly poking out on my right side and hands slide across under my belly button. It's truly wild to watch, but he is stubborn and won't let me catch it on video. He must get that from his daddy...

Hormones | Crying is an almost daily occurrence. Whether it's tears of joy thinking about having my boy so soon or because I can't get my socks off, it happens. I'm just thankful for a husband who has been so patient and kind to me. Every time I cry he stops what he is doing, wraps me in his arms and prays over me. How did I get so blessed?

Weight | +27lbs and feeling it.

| I have a really hard time getting comfortable and getting to sleep, but once I do I am out for the night until the wee hours of the morning when I have a few potty breaks. Other than that I am sleeping great! God's giving me some good sleep before I become sleep deprived :)

Nursery | It's finished and I am working on a blog post to share with y'all. Would you prefer a video reveal or photos? I can't decide!

Fun Fact | Mom's carrying boys tend to eat more than mom's carrying girls resulting in less space in my uterus. That explains a lot!

Best Moment of The Week | Packing our hospital bags and putting them in the car. And installing the car seat. I seriously can't believe it could happen really any time now!

Next Apt. | February 19th!
