29 Week Update!

How far along are you? 
29 weeks and 3 days

Total weight gain: 
Found out Thursday... 22 lbs. My doctor hasn't commented on my weight the entire time, but today told me to "slow down". Yikes!

How big is baby?:  
  Estimated at 2.5 lbs and 15 inches right now.

Maternity clothes: 
Oh yes! Got 2 new tops at a consignment store this week... grand total $11!

Stretch marks?:  
Not yet.

Decent this week. I've been falling back to sleep easier for the first time in months.

Best moment this week?:
On Saturday, we had our baby shower and had SO much fun with family and friends! Penny is super spoiled :). On Sunday, we spent most of the day in the car and the baby moved ALL DAY LONG. It was so much fun! Also, both my parents felt their grandbaby kick!

After Sunday, the stinker has gotten so quiet! I'm feeling the head/hands but haven't gotten kicked in 3 days which is so weird. The doctor said that as baby grows, I may feel less kicks and more shifts/pressure since he or she will run out of room. 

Food cravings?:
I've been on a sweets kick, which is bad!

Food aversions?:
No peanut butter sandwiches.

Labor signs?: 
Thankfully not.

Belly button in or out?: 
Continues to disappear but still in.

What I miss: 
Sleeping on my tummy! I finally had to give in.

What I'm looking forward to: 
Seeing the baby again at 32 weeks. Starting the breastfeeding book I got at the library today.

What I'm not looking forward to: 
The 24 hour urine test.... ew. Thanks to my blood pressure being up again this week, I'm on a new med, doing the urine test, and have to go weekly from now on.

Still unknown!
