Bump Day -- 29 Weeks

How far along? 29 weeks

Weight gain/loss: This week: Up 5 pounds. Seriously? I checked 4 times before just giving in that I really weighed that much. Gross. Why can't I gain like a normal person in 1-2 pound increments. Does it really have to be 5 at a time!?! Total gain: 17 pounds.

Maternity Clothes? Yes...and I'm kind of over the stretchy waist. I look forward to the day I can wear big girl pants again with a real button and zipper.

Sleep: Meh. It's not bad until the 4am potty break...then I toss and turn until just before my alarm goes off.

Stretch marks: Nothing new...thank god.

Best moment this week: Finally finishing step one of the nursery! Now onto step number two!

Movement: Lots! I still have my suspicions that he's laying sideways though, hopefully sometime in the next 11 weeks he figures out how this is supposed to work...head down!

Food cravings: I randomly wanted some of those Gummy Peach rings yesterday, weird. Of course what you want is never available so instead you just eat everything in sight hoping to fill the void. It doesn't work.

Gender: Boy! But sometimes I get these really weird feelings that he's going to come out a girl...I mean that happens from time to time.

Labor Signs: Nada.

Belly Button in or out? Still in. No real change there.

What I Miss: Energy. Being able to get off the couch without groaning. Bending at the waist.

What I'm looking forward to: Going up to Omaha this weekend to see all my family for baby shower #3! Perhaps this time I will actually take some pictures....

Weekly Wisdom: When you can no longer comfortably bend forward to eat at the table like a civilized human being, it is perfectly acceptable to pick the plate up and just shovel the food in.

Milestones: The baby has pretty much reached his final birth "height" give or take a few inches. Really?? Already? That seems crazy!
