29 weeks...

How far along? 29 weeks 4 days!

Baby's size: he is now the size of a butternut squash. He should weigh 2.5 lbs and be 15 inches long, according to

Total weight gain/loss: 24 lbs as of today

Stretch marks? Nope. I've been very lucky, I'm just hoping I don't jinx myself.

Sleep? Sleep is totally out the window now. I'd rather sleep on my back because I have sharp pains when I sleep on my side but after while I can no longer breath.

Maternity clothes? I'm growing out of my pants like crazy. I feel like nothing looks good anymore.

Best moment this week: I went to the doctor today and his heartbeat was 140 and he is super active. We also got his crib today and my mom got us this super cute diaper bag :)

Worst moment this week: my feet have been horribly swollen and I got put on iron pills today. Also, it seems like everything I eat these days give me indigestion and I feel miserable

Cravings: sunflower seeds.

Symptoms: difficulty breathing, indigestion and swollen feet.

Miss Anything? Sleeping comfortably

Movement: he is so big now that his kicks have pretty much went away because all I can ever feel is him rolling and turning. It's getting kinda painful but I wouldn't trade it for anything but it helps me know he is safe :)

Anything making you queasy or sick? With indigestion pretty much everything does

Sex: BOY!!! Konnor Bryant :)

What is baby up to? His muscles and lungs are maturing and his head is growing to make room for his developing brain. He also needs me to drink all the calcium I can because his bones are still hardening. He is getting so big :)

You are so cute!! I remember going through all of these things, minus the swollen feet (mine never did swell up). You picked such a cute name, so excited for you!
