Taking a weekly pic is turning out to be way harder then it probably should be. Sorry dude.
How far along: 29 weeks (6/10/14)
Size of baby: 2 1/2 pounds and a tad over 15 inches. About the size of a butternut squash.
Feeling: Some heartburn here and there and I think only 1 headache this week. Having some sharp back pains and it's getting harder and harder to get off the floor when I am playing with Collins.
Weight gain: Scale still reading 17 pounds.
Gender: BOY!! I signed his name on Derek's father's day card so it's basically official. Maybe I'll share next week. Or maybe I'll torture you and wait till he's born.
Cravings: I polished off 2 sleeves of Town House buttery crackers in 2 days. Yep, 1 sleeve a day and that was AFTER I ate lunch. And sweets always sound good.
Best moment this week: Getting the nursery painted! Our walls were a real b*tch and we almost didn't go through with the stripes but Derek pushed through (on Father's Day I might add) and I am so in love with them. I constantly go in there and look at them. Can't wait to get the furniture and decorations up now. Oh and maybe put a baby in there.
Movement: As much as this guy moves, I'll be totally shocked if he likes being swaddled. And he likes to wait till I want to go to sleep to really get crazy in there.
Sleep: I finally busted the pregnancy pillow back out. And pregnancy Charlie horses are not a myth. I am terrified to stretch my legs in the morning because of them. Oh the pain. Naps are pretty mandatory too. I started watching my 5 year old nephew for the summer so we are staying extra busy. We all crash in the afternoon.
Maternity clothes: Same as last week. 99% of the time I am in workout shorts and a tank top. I assure you that there is no working out going on though.
Milestones: Muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and his head is growing bigger to make room for his developing brain.
