25 weeks....15 more to go!!

One more week down! Only 15 more to go! I can't wait to see Brody again, but as of now I do not have another ultrasound scheduled. I go back towards the end of February for my glucose test, and then I will be scheduled every two weeks since I will be in my third trimester! I am praying I pass because I have been eating and craving carbs like it's my job. Who doesn't like carbs though?! I am still feeling great. My cold finally passed, but it moved on to poor Brandon. Hopefully it won't bring him down as much as it did me. I feel like it took me over a week to finally get back to normal!

NAME UPDATE: We have officially decided on a middle name! Our sweet boy's name will be Brody Mason Radford.

I really slacked on eating and going to the gym while I was sick. I tried to go to the gym twice while I was still not feeling well, but I really couldn't get a good workout in. It was very discouraging so I just took a few more days off plus the weekend off.  I am definitely paying for the break this week though! I paused the Jamie Eason's Live Fit Trainer since I was not going regularly last week, so I will post all about it once I get back into the swing of things.  

Today is a very special day to me! Brandon and I started dating on February 6, 2011.  It has been an amazing three years! He still seems to find ways to make me fall even more in love with him. He is incredibly sweet, caring,  and loving.  I am beyond blessed to call him my fiancé.  Brody is one lucky boy to have such a great Dad! Happy 3 years Brandon! I love you so much, and I can't wait until we are married next Spring! :)

                       This was in Charlotte 2011 for my birthday, and the ACC championship!

                                   In NYC a day before he proposed :) I am such a lucky girl!

Here are a few pictures from this week:

 My bfffff Devan took me to Jerrod Neimann Wednesday night. It was a blast!
Our sweet cuddly fur babies.  We are all over this cold weather!

How far along: 25 weeks
Gender: Boy
Weight gain: still 10 pounds give or take a few ounces 
Maternity clothes: No maternity clothes, but I think I am going to give up on my jeans.  Leggings are way more comfortable.  I can't wait for it to warm up so I can be in a dress all the time.
Stretch marks: None.
Belly button: Starting to poke out a little bit especially at night!
Sleep:  Not too bad. I'm sure this won't last too much longer.
Best moment this week: Feeling my sweet boy kick and dance every time I play Eric Church. He already has great taste in music ;)
Worst moment this week:  This cold weather. 
Miss anything: Intense cardio and wine.
Movement: Movements are becoming regular and stronger.  Those muscles must be growing!
Cravings: Japanese buffet thanks to Heather :)
Queasy or sick: Great! No more cold. Yay!!
Looking forward to: Warm weather, and hopefully going to a buffet this weekend!

Thanks for reading :)
