29 Weeks!

Well little one I've had a hard time keeping up with our online journal. Work has been insanely busy and I only foresee it getting worse until we hire a new nurse. I'm trying my hardest to keep my stress level down and stay healthy for you.

How far along: 29 weeks

Fruit Size: Cabbage

Sleep: It's been easy to fall asleep but I'm having my own 3am wakeful. I think I just have too much on my mind, but I'm trying hard to get a good nights sleep.

Best Moment this week: Unfortunately this has been a pretty awful week. I love the weekends when I get to spend a little time day dreaming of you and planning your nursery. I also got an invite in the mail for our shower. I'm so excited to celebrate you!!

Miss Anything: I'm dreaming of a Vegas trip, but will hold out another year or so.

Food Cravings/aversions: Nothing too crazy.

Symptoms: Heartburn like crazy, movements, insomnia, and back to getting sick. Daddy has been a real gem in helping to get me HB meds and cleaning up my messes. I love that guy!

Signs of labor: Not yet thankfully, but still having braxton hicks a few times per day.

Looking forward to: Picking up your nursery furniture and starting to put it together. 

Your baby is filling out this week. She's adding fat to insulate her body for the day she leaves her cozy home. You can probably distinguish between feet and hands, head and bottom when your baby-to-be moves inside you. She takes practice breaths but won't breathe air until delivery.
Your baby's growth has begun to slow down now, but she will still gain approximately four pounds between now and birth. If she were born now, she would be able to breathe, but might tire easily and need assistance. Her little eyes are sensitive to light.
