29 Weeks!

Photo: I did not take a picture this morning because I woke up at 6:25 thinking it was Saturday and then came to the awful realization that it was Thursday and I was gonna be late for work. Not a beauty today, but I'll take a picture tomorrow morning.


Her eyebrows and eyelashes are completed and now her hair will start growing. Fingers crossed for a blonde. She's getting a little cramped in there and now weighs 3 pounds and is probably about 15.75" long. That doesn't seem like much, but find a 15" ruler and then add some more to it. Scary to think that is pretzeled up in there. :)

•How far along?•
29 weeks

•Total weight gain/loss•
As of yesterday morning (remember I was a little rushed today...) I only weighed .4lbs more than I did when I found out I was pregnant. (Considering she weighs 3 pounds doesn't that technically means that I'm still down 2.5 pounds?) Rockstar. However, I fully expect to start gaining some weight in this third trimester.

•Maternity clothes?•
I'm bored with my wardrobe at this point and really want it to get sunny so I can start wearing some dresses to the office. However, considering I'm pulling double duty next week and have a million inspections to do, I'll still be sporting jeans, steel toed boots and a t shirt for the foreseeable future.

Still sleeping hard, but it's never enough. I had to take a nap at lunch today. I had to make the choice between taco Thursday and a nap. Nap won. That said, I'm starving and need to get buy some food somewhere or I'm gonna get a little punchy.

•Best moment this week•
We picked a pink paint color. Hallelujah. I've got a gallon of Behr's My Fair Lady in Satin finish in my car. Painting of Saturday!! (What a great way to spend our first day off together since Kylie's christening...)

This week her movements have been AWESOME. They aren't sporadic kicks and punches anymore, but instead are these long stretches, and if I happen to have my hand in the right place, I swear I can almost make out the edges of whatever body part is pushing for more room. So neat. I'm still getting a lot of rolling and twitches, and sometimes after dinner, if Chris and I are sitting next to each other, I'll have him watch my stomach as it changes shape. It's really weird not to have any control over her movements/my stomach.

•Food cravings•
We hit up Cold Stone Creamery on Tuesday night after eating at the Olive Garden with Shakes and Sarah. Cream Cheese ice cream with cherry pie filling. Holy! It was so good.


•Labor Signs•

•Belly Button in or out?•
I think it's shallower than I think.

•What I miss•
I miss feeling refreshed after a night's sleep.

•What I am looking forward to•
Spending the WHOLE DAY with Chris on Saturday! And I guess my Midwife appointment on Monday...

•Weekly Wisdom•
I have 4 very sizable books to read and only 8 weeks till I'm full term. Add on a full time job, 8 hours of commuting and a house that the dogs destroy on a daily basis and I have no idea how I'm going to get all this reading done.

Also, I'm still highly annoyed about the childbirth classes being cancelled.

Saturday will mark 75 days till my due date. Eeek!
