How Far Along: 29 Weeks
just pretend I look cute please.  Thanks!
Size of baby: a squash
Total Weight Gain/Loss: this one scares me.  I'll get on the scale again at some point but I honestly don't even think about it terribly often.

Maternity Clothes: yes

Gender: BOY!

Movement: Yes, it is much stronger the past few days and very visible on the outside.  My entire stomach area will wiggle when he really gets going. 

Sleep: I've slept pretty good but I'm still just on a weird schedule.  I can't seem to fall asleep at night and my alarm seems way to early in the morning.  I blame it on a week in Hawaii and it makes it easier to accept.

What I miss: non swollen feet, and being able to bend over.  My ankles and feet are swollen all the time and I struggle to find the right position to be able to bend over and put my socks or shoes on each morning.

Cravings: none really.  I am really not all that hungry and often have to make myself eat a meal.  Lots of foods sound good and then after a bite or two I'm stuffed.  There just isn't room for a big meal in there anymore. 

Symptoms: swelling and nausea.  I've dealt with the nausea for 29 weeks now which makes the 11 I have left to go seem bearable!

Best Moment This Week:  I had a GREAT week.  I spent a week in Hawaii with my family and then got to come home to my hubby and fur babies which is always so much fun.  I don't think I could pick just one moment - there were far too many to choose from. 

Milestones: Baby's energy is surging, thanks to white fat depositing beneath his skin. And since he's growing so fast (weight will triple by birth), things are getting kind of cramped in the womb. What all this means for you: Get ready for some more kicks and jabs to the ribs.

What I'm Looking Forward To: We have a lot to look forward to but I am most excited about a weekend at home with NOTHING to do.  I feel like I have been running from one thing to another since getting off the plane in Monroe on Monday.  We have a few house projects lined up for the weekend but nothing stressful and if they don't get done then we will finish them at a later time.  I love weekend like this one coming up.  Plenty of time to relax and unwind from a crazy week or two.


  1. You DO look cute! I can't believe you're getting so close!

  2. I am getting those pictures on Picassa now... I have never used it before so be patient with me.
