How far along: 29 weeks...and yet I feel like I should be more like 35 weeks along! Haven't I been pregnant for FOREVER?!?!
Baby Size: acorn squash - about 2 & 1/2 to 3lbs and 16 inches long. I'll have a better estimate of his weight at next week's ultrasound. Oh, and for the FIRST time, his head is finally in proportion with the rest of his body - YAY!!!!!
Maternity clothes: nope - the weather is still holding out so dresses and skirts are helping keep the maternity clothes away...for now.
Stretch marks: I honestly can't tell if I'm seeing things because I'm paranoid or if I'm really seeing the beginnings of some on my belly...but I'm not takin' any chances and therefore, still slatherin' on the Mama Bee Belly Butter (I just hope this stuff works!)
Sleep: Much better now that I'm sleeping in my own bed. The last few nights have been decent so I'm not complaining.
Gender: I think we've covered this...
Movement: Yes, I feel movement but he's definitely not a huge mover - he sorta goes in spurts I feel like. I feel him at night mostly when I'm just sitting on the couch trying to relax a bit...something I'll definitely ask about at tomorrow's appointment with the OB.
Looking forward to: the long weekend - I mean, who doesn't love long weekends?! I hope for it to be a good mix of productivity and relaxing.
Food cravings: green tea! I'm not a huge tea lover so this is odd for me. I bought some decaf green tea while on vacation and have been having a cup every morning with my breakfast. Oh, and still fresh fruit - watermelon, grapes, blueberries, strawberries - I want it ALL!!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!!
Labor Signs: I think I may be having some braxton hick contractions...not sure though. I'll discuss with the doctor tomorrow for sure.
What I miss: SO many little things but mostly running!! It's really been bothering me lately. All I want is to go for a run :/ But I know it's temporary and I CANNOT wait to get back to it!! My work surprised me the other week with a little party and a jogging stroller - so looking forward to going on runs with the little guy!!
Symptoms: still pelvic area soreness, my tailbone gets sore when I sit for too long, lower back soreness....basically I'm just sore top to bottom these days.
Nursery: The canvas I ordered got delivered and it's adorable...BUT it's damaged so I'm hoping to get a new one. I've emailed the company so hopefully they'll just send a new one and it won't be too much of a hassle *fingers crossed*
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Workouts: The same...working out 5-6 times a week - lots of cardio on the elliptical and bike and also doing upper body strength training and still lots of stretching.
Things that suck: being pregnant. Seriously. I know, I know. That makes me sound ungrateful...which is so NOT the case. I just honestly don't think I'm meant to be pregnant. Some women love being pregnant. Others not so much. But I KNOW the end result will SO be worth it!!!! I'm just ready to get back to being ME...to feeling normal...to looking normal (whatever that'll look like post-baby!)
Things that don't suck: cookie dough Oreos...just sayin' :)
