Weekly Update- 29 weeks


6/20/16 - 6/26/16


Size of baby: Butternut Squash-  His muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and his head is growing bigger to make room for his developing brain

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 20ish pounds, haven't weighed myself this week

Maternity Clothes: all maternity and stretchy dresses

Sex: Boy #2

Movement: he moves all day long and especially at night around 9pm which seems to be when he's most active. He feels very low so my cervix is taking a beating. 

What I miss: not being so uncomfortable all the time and running out of energy so easily. I desperately want to clean/organize and nest but get worn out so quickly. 

Sleep: terrible until about 2am, lots of tossing and turning, around 2-3am I finally settle down and sleep well until my alarm goes off. 

Symptoms: this past week was rough, a lot of braxton hicks contractions, pressure and feeling more like I'm 9 months pregnant than 7 months. I'm starting to panic that he's going to come early and we are NOT ready. 

Cravings: anything sweet

Best Moment this week: After panicking the other day about him coming early I ordered the crib, bedding and made Kristian paint the nursery this weekend. Also, pulled out Hunter's baby clothes to start organizing. So we made some progress. 

What I am looking forward to: Getting the crib this week and a long 4th of July weekend.
