It’s been a few weeks since I’ve done a pregnancy update but this week I’m 29 weeks pregnant! Only 11 weeks until we meet our baby boy. The last few weeks have been really fun and the baby is moving a lot lately. I’ve been lucky to have a healthy, easy pregnancy so far (hopefully that lasts!). My worst symptom has been not being able to sleep very well. I get pretty bad leg cramps and can’t get comfortable at night. Sometimes the leg cramps jolt me out of bed because they hurt so bad (has anyone else had this happen to them?). I’ve been so lucky to be on summer break from work this summer so I can take naps if I need to and have been able to keep exercising. I can’t believe I’m already in the third trimester; this pregnancy really is flying by so fast.
How far along? 29 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 18 lbs
Maternity clothes? I haven’t bought a lot of “maternity clothes” but I’ve bought a lot of dresses and skirts that are the same size I wore before with really stretchy fabric. That way I can wear them after the baby comes too. The dress I’m wearing in this picture is from Roolee Boutique.
Stretch marks? A few light ones popping up but they aren’t too noticeable.
Best moment this week: Putting the baby’s crib together! It seems so much more real now that we have a place for him to sleep and the nursery is coming together.
Movement: Tons! Although he always seems to stop kicking when people want to feel.
Food cravings: I can’t get enough fresh fruit, especially blueberries. I’ve been really lucky to not crave sugar or sweets during this pregnancy but I always want fruit.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Anything spicy…this week I learned Indian food doesn’t agree with me. A few weeks ago I had food poisoning too, which was awful. Luckily, I got over it pretty fast.
Have you started to show yet: Yes! I always bump people when I hug them now.
Labor Signs: I’ve had some cramping but nothing serious.
Belly Button in or out? Still an innie but it’s starting to get pushed out.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy 🙂
Looking forward to: Having fun during the last few weeks of summer break.
*I know I haven’t posted much content on this blog lately, other than pregnancy related things. I’ve honestly been a little burnt out on blogging and am trying to decide what to do with this blog. I might just use it as a space to write about my pregnancy, family and mom life after the baby comes. Thanks for being patient with me and following along.
