How Far Along: 29 Weeks (this is a terrible picture but Friday was a busy day and it's the only one I took. The dress makes me look huge- Jay calls me a blueberry when I wear it!)
Size of baby: Little one is around 2 1/2pounds and 15.2 inches head to heel, about the size (weight) of a butternut squash.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained about 25 pounds.
Maternity Clothes: I am pretty much wearing all maternity clothes. I don't have a ton of them so that is why you see them all repeated on here. It's been so warm I am realizing I am in need of some more capris and probably a couple of pairs of shorts. I am loving dresses right now and have some non-maternity dresses and some maternity dresses of my own and a few on loan. So comfy!
Gender: It's a girl! Mary Isabelle (see this post about her name)
Movement: I am not feeling as many of those hard kicks but I am starting to feel and see lots of rolling movements. She did a somersault earlier last week and turned herself upside down (breech!). I think she may have turned back over but it's hard to tell.
Sleep: Both of my hips are sore when I sleep on either side for more than a few hours. I have found a new way to prop/tilt myself on my pillows so I am tricking myself into thinking I am sleeping on my back a bit even though I am tilted to the left. I am sleeping much better that way and I hope I can do this for awhile.
What I miss: Sleeping on my back. I cannot wait to lay flat again!
Cravings: I am still loving fresh fruit right now- apples, pears, oranges, bananas, melon, and cucumbers. Ice cream and frozen yogurt have sounded good too since it's almost like summer outside. I still love Mexican food but I find I can space my cravings out a little further than I used to. (Now my mouth is watering!)
Symptoms: My heartburn is still there. I've had to go back to taking the Zantac every day along with some Tums. I am having a few Braxton Hicks from time to time and I have some swelling at the base of my ankles that seems to come and go with the heat and my activity level. It'll all be worth it in the end!
