oh baby! 29 weeks!

July 27, 2012 in Oh baby!

How far along? 29 weeks + 4 days.

How big is the baby? Between 15.2 – 16.7 inches long; and weighs about 2.5 – 3.8 pounds — the size of an acorn squash! Holy smokes! He’s getting big!

Total weight gain? Haven’t been back to the doctor since last week, so I’m guessing just over the 25 pounds from last weeks appointment. I’ll be more accurate again next week!

Stretch marks? We literally just found our first 3! I’ve been looking everyday, and hadn’t seen any until I began writing this post! And I do have this super veiny lines on my boobs. Ugh. More ugly boob talk. I am slowly accepting that my boobs will never, ever be the same.

Sleep: I’ve been staying up later trying to get things done; waking up on average 3 times a night to pee; crippled with anxiety when I wake up in the middle of the night to pee; and then waking up for good around 4:30am. So sleep is a luxury that I am not provided these days!

Movements: Still obsessed with the fact that I can see my whole belly move. I watch it for hours! 🙂

Food cravings: Nothing this past week, really. I hadn’t really thought about it til now. But this may be the first week where I haven’t had any significant cravings!

Food aversions: Keep the chicken away still!

What I miss: Nothing. I feel great!

What I’m looking forward to: Next week we start our bi-weekly appointments! Hopefully painting the nursery soon!
