29 Weeks

29 Weeks


Total Weight Gain: 17 lbs.

Maternity Clothes?  Nothing new.  I've gotten to the point where I would rather buy things for Liam instead of myself!  I did have a chance to dress up a few times this week which is always fun.  After battling my wardrobe almost daily, it was refreshing to feel pretty & proud of my growing belly.

Wedding Rings On or Off? On!

Stretch Marks? No, but....the linea nigra (dark line) has made an ever-so-faint appearance on my belly.  My doctor says it shouldn't get very dark since I have fair skin.  I can only hope! :-) 

Sleep?  I have my good nights and my bad.  However, I have been waking up much earlier these days which I am not happy about.  I'm going to be waking up early for the next umpteen years of my life, I would like to enjoy sleeping in for just a bit longer!

Best Moment This Week: My baby shower!  There is so much to say and many pictures to share, so I'm going to do a separate blog post about it! :-)

Miss Anything?  Celebrating Cinco de Mayo!  I love tequila and really missed it this week.

Movement?  Liam did a full flip the other day and it almost made me sick to my stomach, but I loved it at the same time.  He's also had the hiccups quite often lately which is fun for us both!

Food Cravings:  Still on my lemon poppy seed kick.  This week, I added petite lemon poppy seed scones from Whole Foods to the mix.  They are the perfect little snack to go with my daily cup of tea!

Food Aversions:  Mashed potatoes!  This is typically a favorite food of mine, but for the last few weeks the thought of them makes me gag.

Symptoms: Oh the heartburn!  Tums are my best friend...

Staying Active?  I'm afraid I may be hanging up the running shoes soon.  I still got in some 2 mile jogs this week, but they are becoming increasingly uncomfortable.  However, I'm loving the pool!  I've increased my distance and am now swimming a mile in 45 minutes or less.  I've decided that I really want to do a sprint triathlon after Liam is here.  It will be motivation to get back in shape! :-)

Belly Button:  I'm going to say it's still "in," but getting mighty close to absolutely flat.

Happy or Moody?  Happy, happy, happy!  No hormonal breakdowns this week, thank goodness!  Well maybe one small one...

Nursery Progress:  Lots of new things in the nursery that I received at my shower!  More details to come!

Looking Forward To:  Our birth classes!  Our first one is this Tuesday.
