I’ve really been neglecting this blog and it’s because this pregnancy is kicking my butt:) I’m exhausted! Most days I’m in bed by 8:30 (I blame Noah, he likes a quick snuggle before he goes to bed and I usually end up falling asleep there with him for a little while). The days that I’m not I’m trying to keep the house clean and make progress on baby girls bedding (which is coming along nicely!). Then there’s this thing called 50 Shades of Grey that I swore up and down I wasn’t going to read but caved and I just finished the second book. Once you get past the gratuitous sex parts and get to the main story line (and see how the sex falls in with it) it’s less appalling.
Anyways, I have a bunch of posts started and owe you all an update on Noah (since I’ve missed doing his monthly stuff for a while) which I’ll get to eventually! For now, here’s baby girl.
How far along are you? 29 weeks
Total Weight gain/loss? Up 19 total. There was a big jump between the last two appts and I blame it on the heartburn. I’m forced to down milkshakes and chocolate milk to keep it at bay….that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it!:)
Stretch marks? I’m crossing my fingers I’ll luck out this time too. My skin seems very stretchy (something I always hated as a kid and I’m thanking my lucky stars for now)
Baby Movement? Oh my goodness…she’s a rockstar in there. I sit in meetings around 4:00 and just watch her grove, my entire belly goes nutz. She’s definitely picked up in the movement department.
Best moment this week? Doc tells me she’s head down!! I’m so happy. I know there’s time for her to flip back but she’s in the right spot for now which is great.
Food Cravings?Milkshakes…thank you heartburn.
Belly button in or out? Someone remarked that my turkey timer is about to pop so I guess it’s sticking out more these days. It shows thru my shirts if they’re not super loose.
Milestones? No big milestones this week. We’re almost done with the bathroom reno so I can get on to the baby’s room. We’re heading up to PGH in a few weeks and I’m hoping to assess the condition of my childhood dresser and see if we can use it for baby girl (with a nice coat of turquoise paint!!!!…squeeee…I’m in love!)
Belly pic to come, my little tripod busted and I can’t find the switch plate for my big tripod. I’ll have to corner DH and ask him to take one one of these nights.
