Week 29- September 9th-September 15th
Due Date: November 18, 2011
How Big is Baby: As big as an eggplant
Symptoms: Well, I'm starting to feel pregnant. I'm starting to think that Mrs. Duggar really is freaking crazy for going through this so frequently. I'm functioning fine, but I'm moving a lot slower. Carrying more than two bags takes my breath away and the belly is feeling heavier these days. I feel as though I'm resorting back to the first trimester and can no longer stay awake past 10pm. I may also be having some braxton hicks contractions.. either that or baby boy is karate chopping my ribs.
Cravings: Nothing. This week everything sucks in the food department. I wanted Chinese and it tasted like day old fish. I wanted a veggie delite from subway and it tasted like day old fish.
Sleep: I'm sleeping a bit better this week. I'm still sleeping from about 10:00pm-6:30am, but it's not always peaceful sleep and I wonder if it's possible to reach REM sleep considering the fact that I'm up every 2 hours peeing. Despite all that sleep, I'm still beat during the day. BEEEEEAT.
I Can't Live Without: Drinking water. I have never been so thirsty in my entire life. I drink at least a gallon of water between the hours of 7pm-9pm. It's not a good move.
I Miss: My fall wardrobe. I'm running out of clothes to wear. Small feet. ALL of my shoes are too tight, resulting in more swelling. Surprisingly, I do not miss alcohol. I haven't had a sip since February and to be honest, I don't even mind.
I am Looking Forward to: My second and final baby shower that my mother-in-law and 2 sister-in-laws are throwing for me!
Milestones: He's started getting the hiccups and it feels so funny!
Awkward Moments: Nothing this week.
Exercise: I bought a pregnancy belt and have resumed the treadmill work outs.. (well at least twice this week) and I'm walking the dog. Does that count? My exercise is not like it used to be though. It now takes me about 1/2 an hour to walk a mile. I used to walk at least 2 in that same amount of time. What can I say, I'm waddling more now.
Diet: I'm not on a diet. This is my free pass to eat whatever I like.
Movement: He's rolling around in there.
Gender: It's a boy! Grayson Patrick!
