29 weeks

How Far Along: 29 weeks and some change.
How Big is the baby? My ticker says a pumpkin.  Over 3 lbs.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Around 25 lbs - wt gain has slowed a little bit in the last month probably because I have been exercising more.
Maternity Clothes: Mostly maternity, but still wearing some prepregnancy tops and stretchy yoga pants and if you can believe it I've only bought one new maternity/nursing bra.  
Movement: Last night I felt like my uterus was a washing machine on spin cycle.  
Belly button in or out? It's getting pretty shallow. 
What I miss: Biking and running. I am going to miss my cousin's wedding in a few weeks because it's too far to travel in the 3rd trimester:(
Milestones:  Baby shower!
Food Cravings:  Ice, pistachios and oranges.
Aversions: None. 
Symptoms:  Onset of braxton-hicks contractions.  It's weird because they are not painful, but I get out of breath and lungs feel kind of squeezed right before one starts.  Strangest feeling.  I'm fighting a yeast infection right now too. Not fun. 
Best Moment this week: My baby shower on Saturday.  I have to admit one small part of me was dreading it, but it ended up being lovely.  
Funny Moment: We got a carseat at the shower and the first time we snapped the seat to the base it got stuck.  We spent about 45 minutes trying to figure out how to undo it (a strap had gotten stuck where the base attaches to the seat), and not without alot of sweating and cussing. 
What I'm looking forward to: Enjoying the last trimester of pregnancy with him on the inside and fanastizing about what life with baby on the outside is going to be like.  


  1. Haha, we also had some fun assembling and learning to use our stroller/car seat : )

  2. Glad everything is going great! You're getting close.

  3. Wow, 29 weeks! You are getting so close, that's amaaazing. It sounds like you are doing wonderfully, and I'm so glad. I cannot believe you only bought one maternity bra - I'm so jealous! I'm huuuge already, not fun.

    Congratulations on getting this far, I can't wait until we all get to meet him!!

  4. Congratulations! 29 weeks... you're almost there and I'm so happy for you!

  5. I love the "uterus feels like a washing machine on spin cycle"! So true! I can be completely entertained by just watching my tummy now when she is moving - now I know exactly where they came up with ideas for movies like Alien!

    So glad you had a good time at your baby shower :)

  6. Happy 29 weeks :) I'm glad the shower went well. My DH and I went to BRU to check out the car seats, & we had a hard time figuring out the lever to release it from the base. My DH was getting so pissed! I guess we have some learning curve to get through! The braxton hicks weird me out a little. I'm glad our bodies are starting to "practice".

  7. YAY! Congrats on 29 weeks! Right now I feel the same way about my baby showering coming up in May (dreading it). I don't know why, damn infertility!

  8. That's awesome! You are at a great place!

  9. Sounds great...brings back memories... Enjoy it! Loved "the interview"
