// Weeks 28 and 29//
Week 29 Interview
How far along? 29 weeks 5 days
Baby’s size? A cabbage, about 3 pounds. Read more.
Days until next doc appointment? 1
Total weight gain/loss? About 20 pounds. Good grief my feet are feeling that.
Maternity clothes? So thankful for them.
Stretch marks? Yes, but still staying well moisturized with Dr. Bronner’s Coconut Oil
Sleep: My dear friend let me borrow her sleeping wedge. It’s a life saver during nights with extra tough heartburn.
Best moment this week: Getting the baby’s room cleared out, crib and side table painted and assembled, and library shelves in place!
Movement: I love it. She turns and tumbles and jabs, sometimes shocking me with how strong she is. She tends to be pretty predictable - first thing in the morning, mid-morning, after eating, before bed. She had a couple quiet days, but we decided it’s just because she’s growing bones and brains at this time. :)
Food cravings: Not really. D made a delicious stir fry last night that I could use more of!
Anything make you queasy or sick? Not really. I did add Red Raspberry Leaf tea to my diet this week. So yummy and good for the third trimester!
Have you started to show yet? Yes, in fact this week the bump has expanded to my upper abdomen. Sometimes it’s quite painful, especially if I overeat at all. I’ve had numbness where my diaphragm/upper uterus meet when sitting. It goes away pretty quickly, but can be really uncomfortable.
Missing anything? Walking quickly, the luxury of feet that don’t hurt.
Labor signs? Thankfully no.
Belly button: Still technically an innie.
Wedding rings on or off? Depends on the day.
Happy or moody most of the time? Wellll…if I’m honest I’ve been a little more easily irritated. I started taking a vitamin B complex which helps quite a bit with regulating hormones. I may or may not have A. sworn in front of a little boy B. got so mad at Donald that I swiped at his arm and cried in PetSmart C. about stormed the steps of my landlord when she refused to pay for a chimney inspection.
Weekly symptoms: As mentioned before: achy feet, back muscles sore a little more often, legs get tight, definitely can’t lay on my back at all because my breathing becomes labored and pulse starts racing, a little irritability, feeling baby’s weight and pressure more strongly, but that is good. :)
Up next: So excited for my upcoming baby shower!!!
Here’s a pic from last week:
Fall has been beautiful!
