29 Weeks (about 9-13 to go)

Baby Size: 
Acorn Squash
16.5" long  
2.75 lbs



Trying to use her full name more

Baby Changes: 

  • She's getting a little cramped in there, since she's growing so fast
  • She's growing white fat deposits under her skin, and her energy is surging because of it
  • She's had hiccups a few times
  • I can definitely feel her up over my ribs now

Weight Gain: 
no clue

  • Fruit
  • Vegetables
  • Vanilla soft serve with fruit and chocolate


Still none.


I'm hard to miss these days

Body Changes: 

I've definitely noticed an increase in mucus. Little girl is also starting to move around a lot more. She's growing stronger each day and I can definitely feel little feet kicking me up near my ribs. It seemed like for awhile, she was laying horizontally, but she's definitely shifted to vertical. My ankles and feet have started to swell again over the last couple of days. Thankfully I have acupuncture again on Thursday. My lower back has also been pretty tight and sore. (Chiro on Friday.) I've felt some quick, but fairly intense pressure in my low abdomen, Braxton Hicks? Slight panic is setting in now that we're nearing the end. Trying to stay ahead with completing little things each week. 

Worst Moment this Week: 

Glucose test. (Thankfully I passed though!)

Best Moment this Week: 

Completing several items on our to do list!

Looking Forward To: 
Greek Easter on Sunday. Haven't seen my husband's extended family in awhile.

Completed this week: 
  • Washed all her clothes in her hamper
  • Purchased some baby hangers, and hung up all her clothes
  • Purchased curtain rod for nursery
  • Hung curtains on new curtain rod
  • Purchased shelving for garage 
  • Completely reorganized garage
  • First coat of paint on the growth chart
  • Things to complete: 
    • tour the birthing center at Emerson
    • order glider cushions
    • choose a pediatrician
    • sign up for infant CPR class
    • pick up Hubby's old toy chest from his parents
    • pick up the changing table (for downstairs bath)
    • paint dresser, glider and changing table
    • finish growth chart
    • finish family tree art work (here's a sneak peek)

  • Feeling little feet kicking up near my ribs
  • Watched my entire belly shift when she moved
  • Cried while talking to our little girl
