29 Weeks and Birthday!

I'll update later with pics, but I shouldn't use the excuse that I haven't taken the 29 week pic yet to not write this. I want to have this to look back on a remember my pregnancy.

In approximately 11 weeks, we'll meet Baby - I'm so excited and very much at peace about being a mommy. I took a class this week about breast pumps and decided that I want this one: Medela Pump-In Style. This will probably appear on my/Baby's Christmas list. At approx $260, it's not cheap, but since I'll be going back to work full-time it will be worth it. I also learned about nursing bras and tanks and holy cow.. there is a lot of stuff that you need for breastfeeding.

Okay - weekly (aka whenever I remember) update

How far along? 29 Weeks

Size of the baby? Baby weighs 2.5lbs and is approx 15 inches long.

Maternity Clothes? Yep - maternity pants are nice and comfy! I got some awesome shirts for my birthday despite saying I didn't want clothes ... very happy that my mom didn't listen to that :) I really enjoy feeling like I look cute with the bump and new/nice clothes are a way to do that!

Gender? Surprise!

Movement? All the time - Baby kicks and moves like a rockstar. We had a doc's appointment this week and Baby's head is already down and will probably not move from there! I noticed last night that my tummy was starting to feel tight - as though I'm running out of room, so I'm sure I'll be growing lots more in the next 2..5 months. I've noticed that there isn't enough space between my belly and the steering wheel to put items such as the muffin plastic when I grab a muffin for breakfast

Sleep? Not as great recently due to a bad cold and acid reflux

Cravings? Not really.

Symptoms? Acid reflux.. still.

Exercise? I'm still getting a few times a week in

Weight Gain? 18 lbs - right on track

Best Moment of the Week? A busy couple of weeks - Baby was in their first wedding: Krista got married!! My b-day is tomorrow so we've been enjoying family time and birthday cake! I got some good work done in the nursery, though I still have a long way to go - starting felt good.
