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: Pregnant.

Cravings/Appetite: Apparently I'm still pretty dehydrated from my 24 hour stomach bug I caught a week ago (my stomach has been so, so tight because of it) so I've been drinking gatorade (per doctors orders) like crazy this week to try to help me hydrate.

Clothes: I've broken up with pants. We're done. The full panel maternity jeans are suffocating me and my Hue leggings aren't really working anymore either. I've been wearing maxi dresses this week and if it's been a little too cold for those then I opt for my yoga pants.

Movement: Bennett likes to save most of his movements for the late evening. He moves and moves and moves and I love feeling him! He's pretty calm and quiet during the daytime and sometimes I'll go hours without feeling anything but I can always depend on him to throw a dance party in my belly at night.

Changes in Me: I was having so many contractions today. I actually decided to get my phone out and time them and they were coming every 4-6 minutes. It freaked me out! I never did that with Campbell so I didn't know what to make of it. Eventually they started getting further apart and finally went away so I was able to breath a sigh of relief. This pregnancy has been so different as far as things like that go. I was sick every single day for the entire pregnancy with Campbell but overall, it was pretty much a walk in the park. This time I've had so many moments where I've been concerned. I don't know if it's a second pregnancy thing or what but considering I'm just a worrier by nature, all of these little instances make me nervous!!

Baby Purchases: Kickee Pants released a new line this week so duh, I bought some stuff. Kickee Pants are really the only new clothing items Bennett is getting. I've bought a few little outfits for him but most of his closet is Campbell's hand-me-downs. I'm sure he won't mind since Campbell has some cute hand-me-downs (and I'm certainly excited to be able to use them again!) but I feel like he should have his very own pjs. Big brother Campbell got some too of course. #AddictedToKickeePants

Favorite Moment This Week: I really feel like my belly has popped a lot in the last 10 days or so. I think my feelings have been confirmed by the number of strangers that keep asking me when I'm due. I love this baby belly of mine and it makes me smile any time anyone asks me. I always miss the bump once it's over.

Looking Forward To: My 4D ultrasound on Monday! I feel like it's been so long since I've seen Bennett's sweet face and I miss him!! Campbell's 4D looked exactly like him so I can't wait to see what Bennett will look like!!! In our previous ultrasounds, I've thought his little profile looked much different from Campbell's and I'm curious to know if I'll still think so this time. We shall see!
