Pregnancy update: Week 29

How Far Along: 29 Weeks. I probably don’t have to say it again that I’m amazed this is going by so fast huh?!

Size of baby: She’s the size of a butternut squash measuring at about 17 inches and weighing in at 3.1 pounds.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I stopped getting on the scale really. My doctor was pleased with my gain and measurements last week and I think I look cute even though I feel big but no one else seems to think I look big so I’ll figure out at the end how much I gained and obviously I’ll slow it down if the doctor says I need to.

Maternity Clothes: Yes and no. I can still fit in to my pants with the BeBand but I do tend to stick to more of my maternity pants just because I have it and I might as well wear it. Shirts are about a 50/50 mix of maternity and pre-pregnancy. I tend to wear whatever I’m feeling like wearing that day. Which included a bright yellow shirt the other day… which then made me feel like I was smuggling the sun, so I probably won’t be wearing that again haha.

Gender: BABY GIRL!! Movement: Most definitely. It takes about 10 minutes to get our kick counts done each night, but I tend to lay there for longer than that just because I love feeling her moving around in there.

Sleep: It’s definitely not getting any better. Guess it’s a good thing I’m getting used to being tired all the time huh?!

What I miss: I really miss comfortable sleep. Cravings: I’m always game for Mexican or pizza. Or anything sweet…. Like the Phish Food ice cream I sent Steve to the store for the other day.

Aversions: Nothing, I’m doing really well in the food department

Symptoms: Heartburn, uncomfortable sleep, waking to pee 3 times a night, oh and swollen feet have made their appearance. Which is annoying since I sit at work with my feet propped up, I drink a TON of water (and other fluids) so I’m always racing to the bathroom but yeah, swollen feet. Not swollen anything else just the feet.

Labor Signs: Random Braxton Hicks contractions, but nothing to be concerned about.

Belly Button in or out: Out and proud!

Wedding rings on or off: Engagement ring off, wedding band on.

Best moment this week: We painted her nursery. I love the color and I’m glad I was finally able to settle on a color.

Looking forward to: Finishing the nursery. We need to finish clearing out the random leftover guest room stuff and we can get to building furniture and setting up her room. SO EXCITING!
