29 weeks

How far along:  29 weeks

Baby Size:  

Weight: Up 1.6 lbs this week; total of over 23 lbs

This isn't a new one, but the dreams are crazy!  And if you know me, I've always had crazy vivid dreams, but these are all the time over the top. 

Maternity Clothes:  I bought a few more tops, a maxi dress and some shorts (not jeans one though; my thighs don't like those, haha)

Sleep:    I usually get 2 hour stretches, but once in a while I get a 2 1/2 hour - 3 hour stretches and am like 'wait, did I just sleep that long?'  Last night was pretty rough though with the restless leg thing and the heat though. I might break down and nap today.

Cravings/Food Aversions:  Bring on the cherry pop (cherry coke, cherry dr. pepper etc...) and the trail mix.

Belly Button:  It's still hanging on to being an innie.  Rob finds it so amusing though. 

Rings on or off:  I'm not wearing them very often, they just get really snug. 

Gender:  Girl

Name:  Eleanor Rose

Movement: Starting to feel a more movement on my right side.  Laying in bed I think she almost kicked my arm of my stomach. I was like 'whoa what was that' I still don't feel her much though when I'm moving around. 

Stretch Marks: Haven't noticed any yet. 

Best moment: My last baby shower is scheduled.  That makes four in August.  I'm grateful for such generous people who want to get us stuff. 

Looking forward to:  The baby showers, hitting 30 weeks (3/4 done!)

Nervous about:  I don't have a job after the end of August.  

What I miss:  Leaning forward without being uncomfortable, not getting winded walking up the steps.

Labor signs:  None this week

Appointments:   My next checkup is August 2

Misc.  I wore this dress to church on Sunday and was told by several people that I still looked so small.  It's totally the dress because it just kind of falls there and does nothing to show off the bump.  But it's super comfy and when it's 80+ degrees at 9 in the morning it keeps me cool.  And it was only $15 at Burlington, so it was worth it.
