How far along? 29 weeks PHEW! Chugga Chugga. At 28w 3d I measured at 29 weeks. SO I am still measuring a bit ahead. Due date is still Sept. 20th.
Total weight gain/loss: 15 lbs. gained at this point. Almost exactly the weight I gained with Jax at 28 weeks. Although, I was 5 lbs. heavier to start with his pregnancy.
Maternity clothes? Definitely. I wear Paul's t shirts to bed because I don't like the feeling of tight tanktops while sleeping. I wear either normal shorts/capris that have a drawstrip or elastic waist (although the thighs are getting tighter now :P) But wear maternity clothes the rest of the time.
Stretch marks? Nothing new yet. I used "Revitol" with Jackson and only get 2 tiny marks on my side at the 37 weeks mark. I noticed that I got a few more stretch marks AFTER having Jax because I lost the weight SO fast. This pregnancy I haven't bought any Revitol yet, but need to!
Best moment this week? I just enjoy feeling her move around. It felt like she was trying to come out my belly button earlier today :P
Gender: GIRLY GIRL! Yes, we have chosen a name, but will wait to share it for a little while yet.
Labor Signs: Braxton Hicks come and go. For a week, I will feel them about twice day, then nothing for a few days straight - repeat. I can feel her sitting lower in my belly, which is evident between my 23week and 29weeks photos.
Belly Button in or out? Half out
What I miss:
Not having to hold my breath when I bend over to pick up something.
Not having to remember to take acid reducer meds before a risky meal (heart burn issues).
Not having siactic nerve spams...
Not having excurciating tail bone pain everytime I sit down and stand up. May see a PT about it...
What I am looking forward to: Completing the nursery.
various wall decor
Paint the walls
order dresser/changing table unit
purchase fitted crib sheets
a million other non nursery related, BUT baby related things...
