How far along? 29 Weeks Pregnant
Total weight gain: 29.1 lbs.
Maternity clothes? Exclusively (other than Daddy’s shirts to sleep in that I can still fit into ;0)
Stretch marks? Still only a few small ones, but they are growing like crazy from here on out!
Symptoms: LOTS of Heartburn. Contractions are getting stronger, but no more frequent. Morning nausea and a little bit of dizziness
Sleep: I wake up/roll around a LOT and get up to use the bathroom a lot. The pregnancy pillow helps, but there’s only so much it can do lol. The usual: About 6-7 hours a night then 1-2 naps a week.
Best moment this week: Having our final 4D Ultrasound!!! We never get tired of watching/seeing them and seeing the interaction between the two of them. Every time we see them we fall more and more in love and become more anxious to see them (in August)!
Worst moment this week: It was a pretty good week…I can’t really think of anything bad that happened.
Miss Anything? I still LOVE being pregnant and am so thankful that I get this amazing opportunity. I can’t believe there are people that hate this or don’t see the beauty in the experience. I do miss cooler weather! Savannah is miserable in the Summer as it is….
Movement: LOTS!!! Daddy has started playing with Logan & Emma and feeling them move in response to his touches and pushes on the belly. It’s so neat to watch their bond developing already and i’m so blessed to be married to an amazing man that’s going to be the best Daddy ever!
Food cravings/aversions: GETTING HUNGRY A LOT!!!! Lobster, fried clams like CRAZY, fries, steamers from home in Maine. 😦
Symptoms: Feeling great but getting really sore off and on. A little bit of back pain and quite a bit of stretching sensations and soreness. The contractions are definitely a sign now that I need to slow down. Time to listen to my body and not try to overdo it.
Anything making you queasy or sick: The usual: Cigarette smoke and cologne/perfumes.
Labor Signs: Contractions are coming off and on but nothing new or steady so hopefully they stay that way. My body can get ready all it wants as long as they stay put for now!
Wedding rings on or off? On, except for at night because my hands swell more then. A few times during the day i’ve had to take my rings off for a little while.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Mostly happy still I do get emotional, but i’ve been mostly happy. I’m a little scared for the delivery that I won’t get the things that are important to us and I really DON’T want drugs or a C-section. However, i’m trying to remember that healthy babies/momma are the priority.
Looking forward to: Maternity pictures!! I haven’t set them up but i’m so excited to document this journey This week we’ll finish off the last bit of our babies r us registry and get the “Go Bags” packed and ready to go. Also, putting on the final touches to the nursery! After that: it’s the countdown to the birth!
