29 Weeks: Wait...was that his butt?


One more week in the 20s...things are getting REAL around here! I had a doctor's appointment on Monday and I was a little concerned (insert first time mom panic) because I hadn't gained any weight this month, but the doctor said baby was measuring just fine...actually he is measuring a little bit ahead...which explains a lot #CheckOutThatBump #FeelingHuge

How far along?
29 weeks

How big is baby?
An acorn squash or a Barbie convertible, although AJ prefers to say Ken's corvette ;)
 ~15.2" and ~2.54 lb

What's baby up to this week?
Baby is getting a little cramped in there (you don't say!) and he is growing white fat deposits under his skin and his energy is surging because of it...could this explain his all day bladder trampoline sessions?

Symptoms?
Nothing major...I have had a few episodes of heartburn, but mostly due to what I ate...and I have had some trouble catching my breath whether I am walking, talking, sitting, or laying down...the only time I don't seem to be out of breath is if I am running #GoFigure

Maternity Clothes?
Exclusively in leggings and jeans and mixing tops. I don't have a ton of maternity clothes because I can't seem to bring myself to spend money on clothes that are a) not cute and b) that I can't wear for very long...so you may see me in quite a few outfit repeats :)

Sleep?
The fatigue seems to have returned...but that just means I am sleeping great #SilverLining
I fall asleep the minute my heads hits the pillow and while I am waking up at least 2 times each night to use the restroom I fall right  back asleep.

Missing Anything?
 Every time I eat...whether it be a small meal or snack I feel as if I have stuffed myself silly at an all you can eat buffet. I am definitely feeling the affects of a squished stomach! So I guess you could say I miss eating normal size servings ;-)

Craving?
Nothing really

Aversions?
I wouldn't call it an aversion, but I have sworn off Mexican food after a few bouts of heartburn/indigestion. It's just not worth it.

Emotions?
Overall I had a great week, with a minor hiccup...I didn't pass my 1 hour glucose test on Monday and cue the water works. I panicked, blamed myself, and immediately went into worst case scenario mode. After consulting Dr. Google...turns out it's pretty common to fail the first test and then pass the 3 hour test with no problems. I had my 3 hour test yesterday, so now I am on pins and needles waiting to hear back from the doctor. I'm trying to stay positive either way...

Movement?
The movements are more like full on rolls and pushes instead of kicks. I swear we saw a body part poke out earlier this week...and we are pretty sure we felt his butt ;)

Best Moment of the week
Hearing little man's heartbeat at my appointment on Monday...that sweet sound NEVER gets old!

Pregnancy Brain Moments?
I constantly feel like I am forgetting something or I am late. I drove to work on Tuesday and had a moment of "is the clock in my car right?" and "Do we even have school today?" -Olathe schools had PD and we have always had PD on this day in the past...so I was totally confused. 

Looking forward to?
Getting the results from my 3-hour glucose test...I just want to know either way, but fingers crossed that I passed!  

Projects/Baby Gear purchased?
After my doctor's appointment on Monday I went to Hobby Lobby to pick up some supplies for the quilt I am making...and I might have taken a little detour and gone a little crazy with decor for his room...I kept the receipts just in case, but I am sure I will be able to find a place for every thing I purchased :) 

Running?
 This was a great week for running. I'm only running 2-3 miles at a time...and mostly on the treadmill, but all of my runs this week felt really good. I didn't have to take any walk breaks and had minimal to no soreness in my hips afterwards. The treadmill helps me to control my speed (the slower the better) and is a softer, flatter running surface which has  been much less strain on my body. I have also started incorporating a .25 mile warm-up and cool down to all of my runs which I think has made a huge difference.
