29 Weeks!

 
29 Weeks
 
Same Dress 11 weeks ago... and I thought I had a baby belly back then- Ha! 

  
 How Far Along:  
29 weeks- only 11 weeks to go! 
 
Baby Size:  
Butternut squash- Baby is approximately 17 inches long and weighs approx 3lbs 
 
Total weight gain/loss:  
Up about 25lbs- I'm still walking a lot and eating pretty healthy (minus my nightly ice cream cones) so I'm not too concerned and I'm over it at this point. 
 
Maternity Clothes: 
Yes pretty much all maternity clothes these days- I did pull off a pre pregnancy dress this weekend and I cannot wait to be back in my old clothes!  
 
Stretch Marks:
No and hoping it stays that way! 
 
Sleep: 
It hasn't actually been that bad this week, or I'm just used to it sucking. I've started to get up again  between 3am-5am to use the bathroom   
 
Best Moment of the Week: 
This is totally work related- but I had 2 settlements this week which is always so exciting for my clients and finally the moment where I can exhale that the deal worked out.       
 
Miss Anything: 
My pre-baby body!! I just want to wear my summer clothes.  I'm still dying for a summer beer- every time I see or hear a commerical my mouth starts to water.  I'm not even a huge beer drinker so I'm not sure why this keeps happening 
 
Movement: 
Yes his movements are more big movements and I'm pretty sure I saw a hand moving across my stomach last night- it was pretty crazy 
 
Food Cravings: 
This week all I want is ice cream, I'm not sure if that's a craving or just my own sweet tooth  
 
Symptoms: 
 Indegestion and I've started to get a bit of a waddle if I've been on my feet all day. 
 
Anything making your queasy or sick: 
Not this week
 
Have you started to show yet: 
Yes 
 
Gender:
Boy!
 
Labor Signs: 
No- can anyone describe Braxton hicks contractions? People keep asking me if I'm getting them but I don't think I have but I have no idea what they feel like
 
Belly Button- In or Out?:
In but getting shallow- not happy about this one. I'm def going to have an outtie by June and outties freak me out. 
 
Wedding Rings- On or Off?:
On
 
Happy or Moody?:
Happy- I can't believe how fast this is all going!
 
Looking forward to:
 Working on the nursery some more- hoping to have pics to share soon 

Happy Hump Day!

  2. You look awesome! All I want is a summer beer, too! I think it's the changing weather and the fact that I know I can't have one!

  3. I'll be 29 weeks on Friday and I literally googled braxton hicks this past Monday... I concluded that I'm not experiencing them yet. Maybe you're not either!

  6. You look fantastic! Baby boy has been growing in the last 11 weeks! I never had Braxton Hicks contractions either and wondered the same thing! What do they feel like? What if I don't know I'm having them? People say that they feel just like regular contractions. If that's the case, you'd know if you're having them. I've heard contractions described a lot of ways but for me, it felt like really strong, really awful cramps.

  7. Wahoo! The next few weeks will fly by! With SS my Braxton Hicks were like a tightening of my stomach. They didn't hurt, but it was like a bit of pressure all across my stomach. She was a really active baby, so at first I thought she was just moving around a lot but I had them at a dr's appt and they said that it was Braxton Hicks. I really didn't notice it until then!! MIne increased a lot in the 3rd trimester (but that is ok. they are helping you dilate/efface etc.)

  8. Looking fabulous! I had a hard time figuring out BH too, I wasn't really sure until closer to the end!

  9. I had BH all the time but didn't know it until I had one at my doctor's office and asked about it and they told me that's what it was. I had them constantly my last month.

    For me, I would get these little hard spots on my tummy where it felt like the baby was sticking his butt out (which is what I thought it was), you could even see the little bulge sticking out. It would be really hard in that one spot for a minute or two and then go away. It didn't ever hurt, just uncomfortable and annoying. So when I asked my doctor about it he said that was a BH. Towards the end they did get a bit more painful but not like REAL contraction painful. That's a whole 'nother ball game.

  11. haha love the comment about you just thought you had a baby bump! I feel like most women probably think that all along the way. Love reading your updates! Congrats on the settlements this week too.

  12. You look AMAZING! Nothing has changed one bit except for baby boy getting bigger :). Such a sweet bump you have.

    I never had a single contraction until my due date, the day I went into labor. So I can't tell you what a BH feels like. I do know that I walked 9 1/2 miles the day before my due date (I'm insane, yes I know. It wasn't all at once!) and that definitely onset labor. I woke up the next morning feeling my first contractions. I'm a believer that walking helps get the baby down and out...so as you get closer, and more anxious, to meeting your little guy you might try it too! :)

    Keep giving Baby Boy all the ice cream he wants! Can't wait to see your nursery!

  13. Aww you look fantastic! I'm 25 weeks with my second (also a boy)! And this pregnancy is killing me. I think I was spoiled when I was pregnant with my daughter. I seriously had to sit up for most of the night last night because the heartburn was awful!

  15. you look great nat! i remember thinking that i was "huge" back around 20 weeks, but now i'm like, "what was i thinking?!??" it's amazing how your perspective changes! :) i've wondering what braxton hicks feel like too!

  16. Nat! You look amazing! You are so tiny and just have a bump! Congratulations on your settlements! That is a very good week! I never had Braxton Hicks with my first or at least I didn't really know enough of what they were to realize it. I feel like this is flying by just reading :) He's going to be here so soon! Summer beers cheers to that!
