Holy crap, you guys! 71 days until May 30 arrives. She is moving all about and loving life in there. I’m doing well and getting bigger by the week.
- Length: 16 inches
- Weight: ~3 pounds
- Fruit Size: Pineapple
- Geek Size: Barbie Convertible
*Based on 29 weeks.
- Grace still has to chub out a bit in the next few weeks to get up to birth weight.
- Meaning Mom will be getting bigger. Ugh.
- The buds for permanent teeth are forming in her gums!
Week 28 – 29
Feeling: Relieved!! Last week I had the 3-hour glucose test and passed. I was really worried the night before but luckily it went well.
Health: Week 28 was super warm so I did some walking at night with Sen and during the day at work. It was nice on my birthday so I spent the day outside and walked with my mom for a bit. It’s week 30 tomorrow so the goal is to walk 3 times this week and do some leg exercises.
Nursery: Breon has painted the trim, walls and doors. He has a few areas to touch up and the closet doors (eww) to finish up but then the room is ready. He has also set up the crib which is so pretty and sturdy. I highly recommend the Babyletto Hudson Crib… as of right now….with no baby in it. 😉A few weekends ago, I painted a watermelon in watercolor, scanned that, and made a pattern and had it printed on fabric. It came out a little bigger than I anticipated but I love it nonetheless.
Maternity Clothes: After celebrating my step-dads birthday at Savoy’s Pizza, we drove to his sister’s house where my two cousins (who are also pregnant) were all hanging out. Aunt Mary decided to gift us with a super cute tees since we are all preggers. Aren’t they cute?
Sleep: As long as I have numerous pillows around me, I sleep great. I’ve been snuggling around one for the past week. If I don’t put one between my legs, my hips usually hurt in the morning. I am going to take a second to appreciate the good sleep I’m getting, as I know that later on in the third trimester I’ll start getting uncomfortable. Ahhh… sleep.
Symptoms: My ring finger is swollen so I don’t know if I’ll be wearing my ring anymore… which is a bummer. Otherwise, I’m good. Blood pressure is spot on. Glucose test was good. Weight gain is generally normal though I wish it were less.
Movement: She is kicking and moving all around. I love it. The other night I was watching TV and breon and I both saw her move my entire stomach. It’s very cool and weird at the same time. There is a baby in there!
Best of the Week:
- Week 28: My birthday was fun. I did all the things I wanted. Shopping, eating, walking, and relaxing.
- Week 29: Passing the glucose test was everything! I needed that.
Goals: Walk at least 3 times this week for at least 20 minutes per. Bonus points for a weekend swim.
Other ongoings: This week, I purchased a coffee table and console table for the living room and B put them all together. He has been a rock star with the stuff around the house and it’s great for my nesting OCD! At work, we move out on April 1 so these will be my last few weeks of driving to Hastings. That is WEIRD. One day (April 4) we’ll be working out of the new corporate office in Woodbury. YAY!
