Pregnancy Update - 29 Weeks

How Far Along: 29 Weeks

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I have gained eleven pounds since being pregnant. Yep, I'm packing them on now! I was shocked to find out at my last doctors appointment that I gained 9 pounds in a month! They said that's normal, and healthy, and I'm doing good. However, I still freaked a little...

Gender: BOY! We are so excited!

Movement: I have a very active baby! He HATES being squished, so whenever I lean against something he "pushes" me away.
Justin and his son are playing with Morse code or something because we were all taking a nap the other day and Justin fell asleep with his hand on my stomach. While he was sleeping his hand was twitching and baby boy could feel it and could copy him with kicks! Seriously the cutest thing ever.

Baby is Big as a: Small Cabbage (17 inches, 2.9 pounds)

Sleep: Once I hit my 3rd trimester, sleeping has started to suck again. If anyone has any tips beyond a maternity pillow, I would be very grateful to hear them!

What I miss: Not too much... just sleep and being able to give people hugs without the awkward belly bump. Oh, and seeing my feet... ;)

Cravings: Still craving the red meat and now salad. I also love anything spicy. I just seem to be hungry all the time...

Food Aversions: I like things like Skittles, but they give me crazy heartburn, so I guess I have an aversion to them.

Symptoms: By the end of the day my lower back is so sore and painful! I think I figured out why; I carry my baby boy really low, and he's just the height of my kitchen counters. So unless I want to squish him and have him beat me up, I have to arch my back so I can reach the stove, sink, and counter-tops... It's kind of ridiculous.

Can't wait to meet our baby boy in about eleven weeks!
