How far along? 29 Weeks and in the LAST trimester!
What has been going on this week? Just got home from our 29 week appointment which went pretty well. It has been pretty hot this week so Scarlet and I have gone to friends' pools a couple times this week, played at an indoor park and I have been getting a lot of housework done.
Baby size: according to my app the baby is the size of a Hawaiian pineapple...about 16 inches long and weighing in at 2.9 lbs
Movement?: Yes! some days more than others but almost always in the evening and when I am laying down at night. Some times she gets me a little worried when I can't feel her for awhile but then she will kick me and my mind is at ease :) I love every little hiccup, kick, and roll!
Food Cravings/Aversions?: Still not able to stand the thought of Chinese food...really haven't had any strong cravings throughout the whole pregnancy....not sure why. I guess I crave fruit and cereal but I have craved those a lot even when not pregnant.
Nausea or sickness?: unfortunately I got food poisoning last Friday night after eating a chicken kabob sandwich at a middle eastern festival....not fun at all. couldn't keep anything down and got nervous, finally at 2 am Tim called the hospital and they wanted me to come in just to be safe and get some fluids. I got hooked up to a baby monitor and they noticed I was having consistent contractions. that was scary. After the doctor checking some things out, getting an IV and calming down a little bit the contractions stopped and I was able to stop throwing up and able to go home. phew, that was a long night but we are so thankful everything is ok.
Best moment of the week?: seeing baby girl on an ultrasound a couple of days ago...she is breech as of now and we weren't able to get great 3-D pictures but got a few and as far as I can tell she is so stinkin cute :) hoping she flips to head down very soon...
Tim and I took a little 3 night trip to Vegas last week. It was very hot there but we pretty much hung out by the pool and did a lot of napping, reading and just being together with no phones which was amazing :) Love spending quality time with that husband of mine.
Yesterday I picked up some decorations for the nursery from Hobby Lobby and got them hung up. The nursery is almost done! Tim surprised me by putting up the crib a few weeks ago when I was gone for the day at friends' showers. :)
...also passed my glucose test at 27 weeks
Workouts?: Still going for long walks a few days per week as well as some lights weights and lunges, stair steps, etc...however, it is getting a lot more uncomfortable and I find myself short of breath very easily.
Sleep: off and on...this week hasn't been the best for sleeping, just can't get comfortable and just can't seem to fall asleep or stay asleep. But its all worth it!!
What I am looking forward to?: Our next baby class at the hospital! We took All about Babies a couple weeks ago which was good and next we have Childbirth prep and then breastfeeding. I am looking forward to everything, especially meeting this sweet baby in 10-11 more weeks :)
Prayer for baby girl:
Dear Lord, I praise you that we have already made it to the 29th week of pregnancy. Please give me patience and strength as I endure various pregnancy discomforts, because I know that it is all worth it. Please continue to help our baby grow strong and healthy in every way, and continue to help me take the time to eat healthy and exercise. Continue to bless our marriage and prepare us to be the best parents we can be to this little girl. Thank you for this amazing gift. In Jesus' name. Amen.
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him. - Psalm 37:7
