Week 29 Update

How far along? 29 weeks! I had a fabulous OB appointment yesterday where everything was looking great. Of course, they won't let me off {modified} bed rest, but being down on the sofa and relieving my body of the baby's pressure has helped! So thankful! 

Bed Rest Update: Still on {modified} bed rest, however I have been given more freedom to be up if I'm asymptomatic. So far in the past 2 weeks I have worked up to an hour at a time before needing to lie back down for a few hours. This is huge for my sanity! We have even made it out for a quick dinner several times. Thankful my body is handling this little girl better now that I'm resting so much.

Size of baby? Butternut squash {yum, makes you think of fall right?} At our ultrasound yesterday she measured 2 lbs 14 oz. Amazing she's grown a whole pound in less than a month. I guess we have a few more to put on in the last few months. 

Baby Development This Week: At this point she is rapidly developing neurons in her brain and putting on baby fat. 

Total weight gain/loss: Roughly 20 lbs. My little growth spurt makes sense - she was growing as well!

Maternity clothes? Leggings and long tops out of the house, in the house the normal yoga pants and long tees. 

Stretch marks? Still none. 

Sleep: Improved a little this week in this area, however I cannot seem to sleep between 3-4 AM. Luckily, after that I usually get an additional 4-5 hours with only 1 wake-up interruption. 

Best pregnancy moment this week: Having such amazing ultrasound results yesterday. I'm full of praise and thanks! 

Miss Anything? A lot of small things. But nothing specific this week.  

Food cravings: Having less this week, but really thankful to have more fresh fruit and veggies from the farmer's market around. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: Still can't touch a salad, but have taken back up my delicious cup of decaf coffee every morning. 

Symptoms: L shoulder pain has returned. I don't think crochet is very friendly to this shoulder. At least my rotator cuff will be stronger after all this. 

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! Had an unexpected visit from my out-of-town cousin Monday, which turned into a whole day affair since he forgot his wallet and had to wait for my Aunt to drive it down to him. We had a very fun evening and it was great to see family since I had missed going on the family beach vacation just weeks before. 

How much are you showing? More and more each day I believe. 

Labor Signs: I did have some pressure/pain they were concerned about last week but when hooked up to a contraction monitor nothing was spotted. Phew.  

Belly Button in or out? Classic in-between-ie over here.

Wedding rings on or off? I'm saddened by the idea of taking them off but it's starting to look tight. I'm really not sure I'm going to make it the whole time with them on. 

Looking forward to: My mom is coming into town for a night this weekend, followed by my Dad. So thankful to see them!
