How far along? 29 weeks
Baby’s size/development this week: weighs 2 1/2 pounds and measures 15 inches long; about the size of a butternut squash
Maternity clothes: wearing them? Yes. Although, my new favorite shirt just arrived in the mail. It isn’t maternity but I wore it around anyways. It is my Oiselle Lauren Fleshman is my Homeboy shirt. A-duh it is my new favorite.
Miss anything? Sleeping on my back without waking up in a pool of sweat. But since I’m still sleeping through the night, I guess I can’t really complain.
Food cravings? Nothing really.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Felt sick again this week after breakfast. I don’t know if it is because of the milk or the cereal but either way that is not really a great start to my day.
Sleep: Getting comfortable before bed is becoming more difficult. However, I’m still sleeping through the night as I previously mentioned. I’m not sure how much longer this will last so I’m going to enjoy it!
Best moment of the week: Having more of my extended family get the chance to feel some big kicks. :)
Nursery: I cleaned up some of the clutter, but now it is in the living room. When is this “nesting” thing going to set in? Lol.
Wedding rings on or off? on
Movement? Lots of squirming, moving around, and kicking. If I can feel it start and look down at my belly, you can see my belly moving. I like to visualize what the baby is doing in there. I love seeing all these Instagram videos that my pals have posted of their babies doing baby things. Cooing, air punching, kicking their legs… I imagine that is what Baby is doing inside the womb.
Weird pregnancy thing of the week: Oh the back pain is becoming quite brutal. I can’t sit for more than 1 ½ hours without the pain setting in. The evenings are just the worst. Earlier this week I had a spasm/fit of pain that hurt so bad I had tears in my eyes. I’m not really looking forward to this every day for the next 11 weeks. If anyone has any recommendations for relief, I’m all ears.
Daddy is feeling: the pressure to get things done in the nursery…
Mommy is feeling: that there is still so much left to do!
Workouts this week: Went for a nice walk with Anne when our meeting for ice cream was foiled with the shoppe being closed. :( Also, went for a canoe ride with the hubs when we were in Michigan over the weekend. I had fun but the hubs did not, picking up my extra slack on how poorly I was paddling. Lol.
Looking forward to: My baby showers! Invitations for one have been sent out and the invitations for the other have been ordered. :)
