29 Weeks

Size of Baby: 2.5 pounds and a little over 15 inches long, about the size of a butternut squash.

How I'm Feeling: When its not early in the morning or later in the afternoon I feel great! I'm having the same type of morning sickness that I did in the first trimester but on a much smaller scale. I've gotten sick quite a few times this week which hasn't been pleasant but it is what it is. Round ligament pains have returned this week as well. I can't be on my feet for too long before they start to creep up. While that all sounds miserable, I actually still feel really good. There's just a few moments in the day where I'm uncomfortable but it comes and goes pretty quickly. I still love being pregnant even if I'm sick or have sharp shooting pains!!

Cravings/Appetite: Some foods are starting to give me extra bad heartburn and make me sick but I can't figure out what the foods are. I thought my cappuccino was the culprit but I think it was bananas and I'm fairly certain orange juice is to blame as well.

Clothes: Clothes are officially a challenge now. It takes me longer to get dressed because I can't find anything to wear. I find myself wearing the same things over and over. My Hue Soft and Slim leggings are my favorite pants to wear these days. They're so comfortable....even more comfortable than my maternity jeans.
Movement: Campbell has been waking me up in the middle of the night every night because of his movements. He also greets me first thing in the morning with a little dancing. Last weekend I felt him have hiccups for the first time. I haven't noticed them since then but it was pretty cool so I hope it happens again!

Changes in Me: I'm beginning to understand what women mean when they say the end of pregnancy is the hardest part. I'm not miserable by any means but everything is just getting harder. Bending over is ridiculously challenging. Doing certain things makes my back hurt now and before it wouldn't have even phased me. I can't even keep up with the growth of my belly anymore!

Baby Purchases: I found two super cute pairs of pajamas at TJ Maxx and I can't wait to see my little buddy in them!

Favorite Moment This Week: Scott and I were fiddling with Campbell's crib and we moved it out from the wall a bit and wedged ourselves between the crib and the wall to mess with something. At one point we needed to switch spots so Scott attempted to squeeze by me. Normally that would have worked out just fine but my huge belly got in the way so he had to walk around the crib in order to get on the other side of me. We both got a good little laugh.

Looking Forward To: My maternity pictures this afternoon! I purposely scheduled them on our 5 year wedding anniversary so I would always remember exactly when they were taken. Plus I thought it would be a neat way to celebrate 5 years of marriage. After our maternity photo session we're going to have a nice dinner in Fayetteville to celebrate our anniversary. I'm looking forward to it!
