29 Weeks

Tuesday, November 6, 2012

My baby bump at 29 weeks from the side:

And from the front:

Total Weight Gain: I gained another 1 1/2 lbs this week.  Finally growing steadily.

Movement:  I think our little boy is starting to run out of room in there.  His movements feel more like stretches instead of kicks and punches.

Boy or Girl? Boy!

Food Cravings: Nothing in particular.  I'm just hungry all the time now.

How I'm Feeling: I am starting to feel a little more uncomfortable lately.  Cullen has made his way up under my ribs and some body part is constantly poking them or trying to push them out of the way...not so much fun for me.  I am also having a more difficult time getting comfortable when it's time to go to sleep.  All of that is to be expected at this point though, so no real complaints.  

Size of Baby: Cabbage (17 in, 2.9 lbs) 

Baby's Development:  Baby's wrinkled skin is smoothing out as more fat is deposited under the skin surface.  This new fat serves as an energy source.  That explains why baby feels so energized!  Space is at a premium, so jabs and pokes are now mostly from elbows and knees. Those kicks will be more vigorous than before (and also less erratic) because baby is stronger and excitedly responding to all sorts of stimuli.  Also this week, the buds for permanent teeth are forming under baby's gums.

Best Part of this Week: We got the nursery painted and the crib assembled!  I also had my 28 week appointment this week.  I had the glucose test this time...not so much fun, but I passed!  It was a great week overall!

What I'm Looking Forward To: Corey and I will get to see our little boy again this week!  We are going Thursday for a 3D/4D ultrasound.
