29 Weeks!

Thank the Lord that yet another week seems to have flow by! I can not hardly believe that this time next week I'll be where I never thought that I'd get to. 30 weeks seems soo monumental at this point!

I don't have a picture of myself for this week. I never felt really dressed up enough to have my picture taken. I'll get one this weekend though!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 29 awesome weeks!

Size of Baby: At last measurment on this past Monday he was hovering at 2 pounds 15 ounces. He has to be somewhere over the 3 pound mark now! I go back again this coming Monday so I can find out exactly then. I can't wait!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: We shall never speak of this evil topic again.

Maternity Clothes: Sadly they barely fit anymore. Some days when I know that we'll just be hanging around the house I wear some of Bobby's T-shirts. Several days now I have had to re-hang one because it was too small... :( (my Bobby is not a small man)

Gender: Still our little boy in there!

Movement: He does great for a week or so and then I feel like he has an off day or two where he doesn't seem to move much. At my doctors office this past Monday I mentioned this and they reasured me that they don't necissarily follow the 10 kicks an hour rule. They like to say 4 kicks an hour twice a day. They reminded me that if I ever got really scared to just call and they would put me on the monitor.

Sleep: I still have "off" sleeping days where I just can't seem to get comfortable and drift off. Lets just say that last week I read 3 books cover to cover during the nights I couldn't sleep...

What I Miss: I miss the freedom to move around and do whatever it is that needs doing. I will do anything in my power to get this little boy to the best gestation that I can but I'm still a little depressed about the modified bedrest.

Cravings: Chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate!

Symptoms: Just a little heartburn this week, but nothing terrible.

Best Moment This Week: My Momma is coming in town tomorrow and I just can't wait! It's been almost 3 months since I've last seen her and I miss her terribly!

Would the chocolate be related to the heartburn?!!? Drink some milk, it helps to ease the burn. Plus it tastes good with chocolate :) 3 books is pretty awesome, any good ones to recommend? 30wks, that is so wonderful, your mum will be excited to see you I'm sure!!

I laughed so hard when you said ,"We won't talk about that evil subject." about the weight in pregnancy. I have never gained less than 40lbs in a pregnancy. And for me 40 lbs is good, I was really trying to not gain weight. I usually am up to 50 and I am ashamed to admit that with a couple of my pregnancies it was 60.
How do these women gain like 25 lbs or some, even LESS???!!!
