29 Week Bumpdate

Hey there lovelies!  Do you remember me??  That girl that used to aspire to blog everyday and would get upset when she didn't?  Well that is me and I have not written a single post in a week now.  I sure missed it, but at the same time, we have been so busy that it kind of took a back burner.  I am sincerely sorry, not that I can imagine anyone but my mama reads these, if you have been waiting for a post.

We are having Baby C's baby shower tomorrow at my house and I cannot wait to see all of our friends and family.  We have quite a bit of prepping to do still so I will be busy cutting paper, cutting cheese - the food not the toots, cleaning the house and getting ready for the big shower :)

Hope you enjoy this week's Bumpdate :)

  • How far along are you? 29 Weeks and 1 Day 
  • How I'm feeling: Good.  We are in our third trimester!  How, when, did that happen??

  • Total weight gain:  Went to the doctors on Tuesday and I have gained 17 pounds.  In the normal range but I will be watching what I eat more carefully now since baby boy is supposed to make me gain a pound a week from now on.  I don't want to go above 30 pounds total weight gain if possible.
  • How big is baby? Baby boy H is the size of an Acorn Squash.

  • This week baby: is continuing to grow and his room at Hotel Mommy is getting quite squishy.  He is measuring, most likely, between 15.2 to 16.7 inches and weighs about 2.5 to 3.8 pounds.  We believe he will be long like his daddy so he is most likely on the longer side and normal weight.  Hubs and I were both over 8 pounds, so no 6 pound baby for us.
  • Maternity clothes: It's all I can wear now.  Summer is in full effect and it is getting quite toasty outside.  I am in search of maternity shorts and capris at a decent price.  Here is to the next two months of summer pregnancy :)
  • Sleep:  Sleep has started to get more difficult this week.  I am still falling asleep on my stomach - please hold your gasps, I don't know how or why it is possible, but it totally is :)  I wake up on my back most times though.  Also, I have started getting up every single night to pee and it is not fun.  I know that it is preparing me for when he is here, but I just love sleep so much...Stupid bladder!  The not so fun part about sleeping lately are the charlie horses.  I have gotten two this week alone.  I don't know why it's happening or how to stop them.  Suggestions????

  • Best moment this week: We had a doctors appointment and got to hear Baby C's heartbeat again.  I know that he is in there because I feel him constantly, but it is so nice being able to hear his little heart pitter patter.
  • Movement: Yes.  We got our kick card at the doctors this week also, so we have started doing that.  He is definitely a mover and a shaker this little one inside of my belly.
  • Food cravings: SUGAR!  Which, if you know me at all, you know that I do not like sugar necessarily.  I love soda, no surprise there, but lately all I have wanted is cookies, popsicles, ice cream, etc.  Anything and everything with sugar is sounding amazing and it is taking a lot of self-control to not give in to that.
  • Food aversions: Nope.  
  • Belly button in or out:  Belly button is still in!!!!!!!!!!!!  
  • What I am thankful for: I am thankful that Baby C is continuing to grow big and strong.  I am thankful that I have a husband who has been able to make it to every single doctors appointment.  I am thankful that I have a mommy willing to do almost anything for me.  Me and Baby C are definitely two of the luckiest people in the world.
  • What I'm looking forward to: Baby shower is tomorrow! :)  I cannot wait.  We are having a Rubber Duck themed shower and I think everything will be super cute and fun!  I promise, unlike some other events that haven't been documented yet on this blog, that I will do a recap and fill you in on all the goodies and decorations.

  • Have a great weekend dolls!  See you back next week!
