Can I just say it's getting harder each week to get a picture I like? I actually went through them the first time only to realize I had deleted them all and had to download them again.
How far along: 29 Weeks
How big is baby: From Everyday Family - Measuring roughly 15 inches long, he weighs close to 2 1/2 lbs (the size of an Acorn Squash according to the Bump). For the first time, his head is in proportion with the rest of his body! By 29 weeks, his brain can control his body's temperature. His eyes can move in the sockets, and his muscles and lungs continue to mature. His bone marrow is now producing red blood cells, and fat continues to develop under his skin. He may even begin to settle into the proper birthing position, which is head down, facing your back.
Weight gain/loss: I'm up 1.6 pounds from two weeks ago (not bad for two weeks!) for a total of 17.4 pounds gained.
Stretch marks: In more places than I care to mention. It's just not right.
Sleep: I now have an internal 6 am wake up call. Oh how I miss 8 am!
Diet/Cravings/Aversions: I'm trying to be good, but then someone posts a picture of a cookie and then I MUST. HAVE. COOKIE.
Movement: Yes though John has yet to really feel anything. He's actually become my go to for when Frijole is driving my crazy with his kicks. John's hand comes to my belly and it all stops.
Symptoms: I have to pee again. All the time. So much for sleeping through the night! Oh and I'm hot. So. So. So Hot. July and August are already laughing at me.
What I'm looking forward to: My shower this weekend. Plus my mom is coming down and we're going to start sewing things for the nursery.
Best moment of the week: Not getting a call about my glucose test and knowing that I therefore passed!
How I'm feeling: It has now turned into, keep me cool and fed and I'm a happy camper.
Random things I didn't know/Problems/Questions: Nothing new here either. We're making progress in the house and thus the nursery. The crib is put together, the dresser needs to be put together, and I ordered a glider that I'm really excited about. I can't wait to spend this weekend with my mom putting some things together for his room.
