29 Weeks!

Oops...missed week 28. That's because we went on a mini-vacation to Mystic, CT. Once I get the photos edited from that, I'll do a post about it. Rest assured, you didn't miss much from week 27. Same cravings, etc. 

Here's the 29 week post. Sorry to be short, but It's 10:30pm and I need to get my sleep on! Sorry about the quality of the picture. I had just gotten home from Aqua Zumba, it was 9pm and dinner was still in the oven. I didn't feel much like fiddling with the camera!

  • How far along?  29 weeks
  • Total weight gain:  I'm up somewhere around 15 lbs from the start. I can't really remember what my starting weight was so that's a guesstimate. I think I gained 3 lbs since my last visit. That's what happens when you go on vacation!
  • Maternity clothes?  Yes, although I can still wear some non-maternity tops, yoga pants, pajamas, and dresses. 
  • Stretch marks? I already had some and so far no new ones have cropped up.
  • Sleep:  Still up a few times at night to hit the bathroom and I'll switch sides when I come back. Occasionally I'll wake up just to switch. It's getting a bit more difficult to flop from side to side! 
  • Best moment this week: My doctor's appt. Finding out I, indeed, passed my glucose tolerance test! Boo-yeah!!! Hearing the heartbeat loud and strong and being told that now I'll be seen every two weeks until week 35 when it's every week. Eek!
  • Miss Anything? Wearing my wedding rings. It's hot, so my hands will occasionally puff up if I'm walking a lot (they did this a bit even when I wasn't pregnant). I'm paranoid of them getting stuck, so I've taken them off just to be safe. :-(
  • Movement: This kid is a maniac.
  • Food cravings:  Still fruit - all sorts. Thank goodness one of the restaurants downstairs from work has a salad bar with fresh watermelon and pineapple. I get some everyday!
  • Food aversions: Nothing really.
  • Gender: No idea.
  • Labor Signs: None, thank goodness!
  • Symptoms: My feet and ankles are swollen a wee bit by the end of the day and as I've said my hands will swell from the heat. The heartburn has backed off a bit, but not totally. 
  • Belly Button in or out? In. I don't see it popping out until closer to the end, if at all.
  • Wedding rings on or off? Off. :-(
  • Looking forward to:  Working on the nursery some more this weekend and hopefully getting the crib put together in the next week. I put the first coat of paint on the trim. I'll do the second coat this weekend and Wes will paint the walls and ceiling. I'll probably do the edges because I'm totally anal retentive about painting! 
Some other things that happened this week:

I had to have a Rhogam shot because of my negative blood type. My sister had to have one with my nephews, so I wasn't surprised when she told me I'd have to get one. You get it in the backside and I've never had a shot there, so I was a little nervous. It wasn't nearly as hurty as I thought it was going to be.  

I finally booked our childbirth class and I've also booked us into a 'caring for a newborn' class. Because I waited so long, the new born class is two weeks before my due date. Oops! I also get a free breastfeeding class to go along with the childbirth class, so that's helpful. All three classes were $105 total. I didn't think that was too bad.  

Okay, sorry for the lame post, but now it's 10:50 and I need to go to bed! I hope my post about Mystic is a bit more exciting! (I have no idea what's going on with the font here.)


  1. Did you eat Mystic Pizza...? (one of my favorite chick flicks from my tween years)
    Good luck in your last few weeks!
