29 Week Update

29 Week Update

How far along? 29 weeks!

Baby is the size of: a cottontail rabbit (which is fun because they are ALL over our yard!), a pineapple, an acorn squash, and a Barbie convertible! My favorite!

Maternity clothes? Oh yes. SO much yes.

Sleep: Pretty good, except for some weird dreams that keep me tossing and turning. I did kick the dogs out of the bed this week. I just can’t handle them waking me up on top of me waking up on my own. Sleep training Pippin is interesting!

Best moment this week: Putting the crib together! It took a while (because my sweet husband is a perfectionist!) but it looks great!

Miss anything? Getting up easily. And bending over easily.

Movement: More movement! Actually noticed my belly moving from the outside.  It’s still not enough for Tyler to feel, but I know we are getting close.

Food cravings: Steak. and lemon water.

Anything making you queasy or sick: The follow-up glucose test made me feel queasy, but I made it.

Symptoms: Some swelling. Couldn’t wear anything but flip flops Monday.

And I found out I have gestational diabetes. I am feeling a little lost as I didn’t get a ton of info from the doctor. But I go back in a couple of weeks, and in the meantime I got a glucose monitor to use 4 times a day. Yay for finger sticks! (not really, but yay for modern medicine and attempting to keep me and baby girl safe).

Belly button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? I’m not wearing them most of the time so I don’t swell up.

Happy or moody most of the time: Pretty good this week.

Looking forward to: our ultrasound today! Our moms are going with us so they will get to see her too!
