I cannot believe I am at 29 weeks already! Where has the time gone. It is crazy to think that 11 weeks (ish) from now, there will be a little man at my house!
How far along: 29 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: (As of 01/04/11) +10.8, 215.8 I have a feeling this is going to be BAD next week (my appointment got pushed back a week because of snowmageddon! More on that to come).
Maternity clothes: All maternity. I finally ordered tights. I can't WAIT until they get here!
Stretch marks: Actually staying pretty under control. Gotta love Palmer's cocoa butter.
Sleep: Meh. I'm waking up about 3am every night. Sometimes its because I have to pee, sometimes its because of the sciatica, and if I slip off on pillow so my head is't elevated, its because of heartburn.
Movement: Lots and lots and lots! He must be starting to get cramped in there though, it's starting to be uncomfortable at times. It's too funny when I'm lying in bed at night snuggled up to A's back and he'll start going...A yells at him to go to sleep!
Cravings: I'm still not really craving much of anything. Lots of Mexican...chips and salsa does the trick.
Aversions: Pretty much gone. My love affair with food is back!
Gender: Team BLUE!!!!
Symptoms: Heartburn and Sciatica and in full force. Two minor nose bleeds this week...it now seems to be associated with a sudden rise in blood pressure. The first one happened after A and I got in a screaming match. This one happened after he tried to pressure me into something I was scared to do. Hrmmm.
What I miss: Being able to sit cross legged...I never realized how much I do this until this week, and now I can't!
What I look forward to: Maternity pictures hopefully sometime in the next couple weeks. My belly button popping...its so close!!!
Moods: Up, down left, right, in, out....depends on the minute but been a lot better lately I think.
Milestones: Nursery painting is DONE! (pics to come) Ordered the crib and changing table.
Medical Concerns: Nothing really, just typical stuff for this point. Gotta keep the blood pressure down to keep the nose bleeds away I guess.
Weekly Wisdom: Don't freak about the little things. Save the freak-outs for the big things, otherwise when the big things come, it will be crying wolf syndrome with the hubby.
Worst moment this week: Fight with A that brought on the nosebleed. Being snowed in on Tuesday/Wednesday. I was going Stir Crazy by Wednesday afternoon!
Best moment this week: Finishing the nursery painting. I can't tell you how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. When I'm feeling cranky, I just have to go sit in there for a minute and it all goes away.
