29 weeks :)


How your baby's growing:

Your baby now weighs about 2 1/2 pounds (like a butternut squash) and is a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel. His muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and his head is growing bigger to make room for his developing brain. To meet his increasing nutritional demands, you'll need plenty of protein, vitamins C, folic acid, and iron. And because his bones are soaking up lots of calcium, be sure to drink your milk (or find another good source of calcium, such as cheese, yogurt, or enriched orange juice). This trimester, about 250 milligrams of calcium are deposited in your baby's hardening skeleton each day.

Size of Baby: 2.5-3 pounds

Total Weight Loss/Gain: -17 pounds

Maternity Clothes: maternity jeans and trying to find cute tops to wear so I actually look pregnant and not just large :-P

Gender: GIRL! Vivienne Claire Hall.

Movement: She's getting predictable and definitely settling into her own schedule.  She's really active around 8-11 in the morning, then chills out til about 3 in the afternoon until 5 or so at night and then without fail has a riverdance style dance party as I lay down to sleep.  Must be like 80s night in there for her lol! :P

Sleep: There never seems to be enough but it is better and more consistent lately.  Learning how to nap when I can which has been the biggest help.

What I miss: Laying on my stomach. Coffee. Ibuprofin.

What I'm looking forward to: Enjoying the rest of this pregnancy as much as possible... baby gear collecting... getting her room ready to go... my baby shower... holding her in my arms when all is said and done.

Cravings: the usual, cheese, yellow tomatoes, melon.  Add in lettuce wraps and gummy worms and there ya go.

Symptoms: general soreness and tiredness and still battling some morning sickness.
