29 weeks

How far along?  29 weeks
Total weight gain/measurements: 17 pounds.
Maternity clothes: I purchased two dresses for the baby shower, excited to get them and see how they fit.
Sleep: I feel like I am sleeping the correct amount of time :8-10 hours but I know that I am tossing a turning, trying to get comfortable. I am probably making more out of it then is necessary. I really just need to get use to it!
Best moment this week: This week Rick came down and visited me. It was a great week! We went shopping for a breast feeding chair for in the baby’s room. I think that I have found one but I will shop around a little and see what else is out there. When we were shopping, Rick and I decided to rethink our stroller choice on our registry. I was so surprised Rick was so into this purchase. Haha. He was running around and testing them all over the store! He really made sure we choose the BEST one. I am really happy that we decided to get a nice one. It is a UPPA Baby stroller/bassinet/hamper all in one. With a few adapters it can hold two children! How exciting! Even better was on our way home, later that weekend, Rick found one on Ebay for 300$ off. I can’t wait to use it!

We also went to Wilmington, NC for some beach time! My aunt Lisa let us stay with her. The weekend was so relaxing!
Miss anything? Could have used a glass of wine while relaxing on the beach!;)
Movement: It feels like he doing cartwheels inside me…it makes me laugh! What is he thinking about?!?! 🙂
Food cravings: ugh, cheesecake…I crave it!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope.
Gender: It’s a BOY!
Symptoms: No symptoms really. I have my glucola test last week and the number was suppose to be under 140 and mine was 142. So now I have to go have a 3 hour glucola test done to determine if I have gestational diabetes! So frustrating, but I know its not my fault. It is just the way this pregnancy has affected my pancreas/sugar levels.
Belly button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On, however, when we were in Wilmington it was SO humid that one day I could barely get them on.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy, I can’t believe that I have only 11 weeks left!!
Looking forward to: Finding out if I have gestational diabetes. I am really trying to eat more complex carbs, protein and little processed sugar. I am also debating on whether or not to get a 4D ultrasound of him. It would be nice to see what he will really look like…I guess I just can’t wait to meet him!
Days to go: 76 days to go!
Baby development: Baby is the size of an butternut squash. He weighs around 2.5 pounds and is 15 inches long from head to heel. His muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and his head growing bigger to make room for his developing brain. To meet his increasing nutritional demand, I will need to get plenty of protein, vitamin c, folic acid, and iron. And because his bones are soaking up lots of calcium,  I will be sure to drink my milk. This trimester, about 250 milligrams of calcium are deposited in his hardening skeleton each day.
