29 week Bumpdate!

This week: I'm starting to slow down a lot more and feel a little more uncomfortable. Hence, the late bump post and complete lack of motivation. The heat wave we've been having is no good for anyone, particularly this pregnant lady. You know it's bad when the meteorologist uses words like 'steamy' in the forecast. Summer school is stressing me out, too, so I'm trying to take it easy when I get home so I don't poke my eyes out.

How far along? 29 weeks! 75 days left!

Baby's size: Baby P is the size of an acorn squash!

Total weight gain: 5 pounds

Maternity clothes? Still mixing regular dresses and long tank tops with maternity. I also have one pair of maternity denim capris but it's too humid to be in them most of the time. I may need to hit the stores because I am doing laundry all the time to keep up with my limited wardrobe.

Stretch marks: Belly is stretch mark free but I had teeny stretch marks on my thighs before I got pregnant and they are getting bigger :(

Sleep: Poor Rocky got the boot this week so I am sleeping a bit better. If Jeff doesn't stop complaining about how much space I'm taking up, he'll be getting the boot, too. I still wake up feeling like I fell down a flight of stairs.

Best moment this week: It was so nice to have four days off with Jeff. We didn't do anything big but I love when life and baseball don't collide. Jeff also built baby girl's closet so we are ready to start shopping! :)

What I miss: Sleep. Summer beverages. Bending over without grunting. Getting up off the bed or the couch without causing a scene. Even with that said, I love being pregnant. It's totally worth it.

Movement: All the time and super low. She started kicking me in my cervix? bladder? It's not comfortable.

Food cravings: Ice cream! Drinks with lots and lots of ice! I had an Icee this weekend, and oh em gee. It was good.

Food aversions: Nothing new.

Gender: Baby girl!

Belly button - in or out? Right now half of it is flat and the other half is in.

Wedding rings - on or off? Still on

Symptoms: So I never got the cold I thought I was coming down with, maybe it was just congestion? I started slowing down a bit more this week and I've been having some pretty intense pain down low. Maybe my pelvis? When I get up off the couch, it literally feels like my pelvis is going to split in two. This is only happening after sitting on the couch or somewhere unsupportive. I also think I started getting some Braxton Hicks! My belly tightens up randomly. No pain, though. 

Mood: A little cranky actually. I'm pretty sure it's because my summer school class is full of punks who are testing my patience and it's too damn hot out. Ain't nobody got time for that!

Looking forward to: Ikea & Target trip to get the rest of the nursery furniture this weekend! Hopefully planning a short baby moon is in the works, too! :)

I'm pretty sure Rocky knows something's up because he follows me around constantly. Literally, the minute I stop moving for more than a minute, he is sitting at my feet or laying on me. Love that guy!


  1. My dog was the same way - she wouldn't even let me go to the bathroom by myself while I was pregnant! They definitely sense that something is going on, that's for sure!:)

  2. Seriously... this heat and humidity is for the birds. SO OVER IT!!! You're almost there though! :) :) :) And you look fabulous!! Can't wait to see the nursery!!

  3. mmmmmm ice cream!! :) Cruz is the same way, my little shadow!! Cannot wait to see your nursery! You look awesome.

  4. You look so stinkin' cute!! Love that color on you :-) Sorry you came down with a cold and you're feeling pain in the belly... Yuck! "Getting off of the bed or couch without causing a scene" Bahahahah!

  5. your weight gain rocks my world!
    hope the belly pain goes away soon!
    and i totally get the bed movements...we dropped our mattress to the floor and its been HEAVEN since! thankfully!

  6. Can't wait to see pics of the nursery! I started getting Braxton Hicks contractions a couple weeks ago too and I notice they happen more often when I leave over & then when I stand back up, my belly is super tight.

  7. AMEN!!! Ain't nobody got time for that! And girl, you look absolutely FABULOUS.

  8. yayy! I'm so excited for you!!! And we are both having girls! You've only gained 5 pounds! what the freak! I've gained 18!! haHAhaHA! lucky ducky you!!! You look awesome!!

  9. Hell yeah on the 5 lbs girl! That's awesome! And I've been on and off congested for a month or two myself. Seems to just be one of those fun lucky symptoms. I do hope you feel better!
