I hope all you Momma’s are enjoying your Mother’s Day weekend! To celebrate the occasion I thought I’d give you all a little update on this soon to be Momma’s pregnancy. Last time I blogged things were quite glorious for the Mathes’s. Besides some minor things that life seems to be throwing at us here lately (prayers appreciated), things are going great! I’m good, baby is good and Dillon is getting excited about becoming a Daddy. My pregnancy has honestly been quite the breeze for baby and I, and for that I am feeling very blessed and thankful!
Walks to the park
Something I’ve been enjoying is walks to the park with Dillon and my pups. I really have been trying to stay as active as I can by taking as many walks as possible, which hasn’t been too hard because I truly enjoy the quality time with my man and fur babies. The further along I get the more exhausted I feel at the end of our walks. On our last walk I literally walked in the door and just laid on the floor for a good 30 minutes just to try to catch my breath. My body just crashed. I was BEAT. It’s so weird/cool to see how different my body reacts to something like a short walk and so much more now that I’m pregnant.
Besides the often headaches, body aches, tiredness after a long day, and the baby kicks going on in my belly so far pregnancy hasn’t really had any negative effect on how I feel from day to day. Almost all the time I am feeling great (Praise Jesus)! With that being said, I often have to remind myself to slow down because, “I am Pregnant!”. I have overdone it a few times throughout this second trimester and the outcome of that always looks like me being in bed by 6pm, leaving my hubby to fen for himself for the rest of the day and missing out on our evening norms. Which is no fun for him or myself but I’m learning!
I am feeling Winston kick more and more everyday. Feeling his little kicks and him move around in my belly is my absolute favorite thing! I love when he’s up and moving all around. Dillon has even got to feel him a couple times. It is the best feeling ever, knowing there’s a little man in there that we’ll soon be able to squeeze and hold. I can’t wait to get further along to feel and see him move even more!
We are enjoying putting Winston’s nursery together. Dillon put the crib up and it’s all slowly but surely coming along! There’s still quite a bit to be done but here’s a peek. I can’t wait to share with you guys when it’s completed!
Capturing the Love
Just last week Dillon and I did a small shoot with @wolfstormphoto and they did such a beautiful job at capturing my sweet bump and the beauty of our pregnancy. I highly recommend them! They shared one of our photos on their page and captioned it so perfectly. The caption read this, “Life starts off so small with such profound love that is indescribable. Just to know your love has brought life is breathtaking.” I read this caption and couldn’t help but to shed a few tears. I am truly in awe at the fact that our love has created life. It truly is breathtaking to think about. God is so good to bring two together in so much beauty, only to create an even bigger and profound beauty out of the two. Just wow! Check out the photos below that we were able to capture in our very own bedroom:

So at 24 weeks and 4 days things are so far, so good! We have a doctors appointment this coming Monday and I’ll be 25 weeks this coming Tuesday. Eeeek! I can’t wait to see what else is in store for the rest of this pregnancy. ♥
Much love and blessings,
Mia S. Mathes
