Week 29


How far along? 29 weeks 6 days

Total weight gain/loss: This number is depressing, just going by the drs scales.

How big is baby? Baby already measures about 15.2 to 16.7 inches long. Right now, she weighs about 2.5 to 3.8 pounds but she's still got a ways to go -- can you believe she'll triple in weight before birth? 
  • She's getting a little cramped in there, since she's growing so fast. But you probably already realize that, since you're getting all those jabs and kicks.
  • She's growing white fat deposits under her skin, and her energy is surging because of it.
  • Feel a subtle twitch? It might be baby hiccupping.

Maternity Clothes? I'm going to ask again, why haven't I taken this out because other than the mesh shorts I have, those are the only non-maternity things I wear. Well that and hubby's sweatshirt and his tshirts.

Stretch Marks? Oh holy cow!

Best moment this week?We got to hear the heartbeat again yesterday! Woohooo. 140 beats per minute. We also bought her a 4th of July outfit. I found some last week that I really liked but for the price and not knowing exactly if she'd be here or not, I couldn't bring myself to buy them. What I got her yesterday might not be nearly as cute, but price wise was worth it since we don't know exactly if she'll be here or not. We've had a due date from June 26 all the way to July 4th and back again....

Movement? I think she's taking up kickboxing in there...

Food Cravings/Aversions? Other than nothing really sounds good these days, no not really. Well not other than that bacon dip mix stuff and I haven't tried steak in a while.

What I miss: I realized earlier this week that I don't remember what it was like to have a flat belly. I mean I didn't have a "flat" belly but compared to now it was and I could even suck it in. I also miss my belt buckle... oddly enough. Hmmm.... I also miss NOT crying over the weirdest things. I live 12 miles from my parents house and I cried for 12 miles home the other day and then once I got home I cried for another like 20 minutes. Things just kept building upon themselves and it sucked.

What I'm looking forward to: Once baby comes, getting to lay on my belly again, does that count? I saw this picture on facebook the other day and cracked up laughing because this is totally how I sleep.
If you want to know what I bleeped out I'll tell you but it was a little vulgar for this blog.

Nausea/Vomiting? eh, we're doing fairly decent here.

Labor signs? Well not that I know of....

Gender? We have had them verify it's a girl 3 different times. Think it's a girl?!?!

Belly Button in or out? I've told you many times this is a very sore subject. I've noticed when Peanut bumps up against it (with some part of her) it sticks out and then my shirt rubs it and that aches.

Wedding rings on or off? The rings that hubby bought me so I didn't feel bad are too big. Most days I think I could wear mine but I don't want to have them cut off for some reason so I've put them away for safe keeping.

Sleep? Most every day I woke up this week I felt like I had been run over by a Mack truck. Peterbuilt if that's what you prefer, I'm not picky :) (Think of Cars, Mack Hey Mack. Mack I ain't no Mack, I'm a Peterbuilt) :)

Weekly Wisdom: So I kind of quit counting the weeks that I've had this "fun" cough. It's gotten a lot better but it's still around. The nurse told me yesterday that I'm pregnant. I laughed my butt off at that comment. Then she's like, what I mean is your immune system is down a bit. I still couldn't help but laugh so just so we all know, I am in fact pregnant.

Due Date: Thursday June 26, 2014 was what we originally thought. Then I was told June 30, then July 4th, then June 26, then June 27 and after the 3-D ultra sound June 28. I guess she'll come when she's ready, right?
