Third Trimester!

How far along? 29 weeks

Total weight gain: 14 lbs total

Maternity clothes? I'm wearing almost all maternity clothes - I can still fit into a few tops and dresses, but not many.

Feeling: Great. Sore right hip went away! I'm eating Tums like candy to control my heartburn, but all-in-all, I'm feeling great.

Sleep: I'm waking up several times a night (a few times with awful calf cramps - ouch!), but I don't have any problem getting back to sleep.

Food cravings or aversions: None, really. I tend to eat a lot of vegetables and potatoes, but I've always done that.

Best moment this week: Seeing our little peanut last wednesday on an ultrasound (they were checking to make sure that the placenta had moved up and out of the way - it did and everything looks great!).

Movement: Phillip likes to sit and watch my belly move in the evenings - it looks like the baby is trying to escape!

Gender: Still don't know, yay!!

Labor Signs: n/a

What I miss: We've spent the last couple weekends at the lake, and while I miss going out on the water, I miss frozen margaritas more!!

What I’m nervous about: The doctor told us today that the baby measured in the 93rd percentile for size on the ultrasound last week, so I'm nervous that this baby is going to be the size of LuLu by the time it is ready to meet us!

What I am looking forward to: Finishing the nursery! It is almost done.

Milestones & new this week: The baby is now the size of a squash (or the size of the front wheel of the original Big Wheel - that's from the guy's version) - 15.2-16.7 inches long and 2.5 to 3.8 lbs.

  1. You look SO good!! I am so excited for you guys! Thanks for posting so soon after I harassed you. Haha. I am so excited to meet him/her. I remember the days of laying back and watching Silas dance around. It is totally weird but completely amazing to watch what you are feeling. I don't remember when I got to the point - probably closer to the end than you are yet - but people could watch him move around through my clothes while I was sitting or standing talking to them. Haha. At that point I felt like a creature out of a sci-fi movie. Miss you guys!
