Bumpdate: 29 weeks

How Far Along: 29 weeks and 3 days (12/20/2012)

(I can't seem to get a picture that I'm ok with posting on the you'll just have to wait!)
Size of Baby M:  Baby is the size of an Acorn Squash!! And gaining weight pretty fast!!! Crazy to
think he'll triple in weight before he's here!! Grow baby grow!!!!

Weight: I am happy to report that I did NOT lose any weight this time....Gained it in fact!!! Hurray for me! I've now gained a total of 9.5 pounds.  Thank you Las Vegas for your help.

Exercise: Well I did some cutting back this past week, mainly to try and not lose weight again, and because we were traveling.  I still managed 10 workouts, but did considerably less running (like 1/2 of what i did last week)

Symptoms:  I am just uncomfortable some days.  Tight, and uncomfortable.  Unfortunately it's only going to get worse, so I'll try and suck it up!  The BH contractions are still happening.... some days more so then others.  Yesterday was the worst.  I think he was mad at me for something...or he didn't like how cold it was....either way, he was a pain in my ass (or uterus) yesterday evening.   Having some random back pains, which is fine because i guilt Travis into giving me a back rub :)  I think my ab's split (think upper abs, the line right in the middle).  Gross right? It doesn't hurt, just looks way weird when i go to sit up.  From what I've read it's rather normal, and should correct itself....i sure hope so. 

Cravings: Still LOVING oranges... other then that i have been eating my fair share of sweets.  stupid holidays. 

Sleep: Still just up once to pee usually.... then right back to sleep i go!

Stretch Marks: Still nothing.

Gender: Still a boy....this question just seems silly at this point.

Maternity Attire: Same.  Jeans still fit, a couple of work pants, and the rest are either maternity or held together with a button fixer deal.  Tops are mostly maternity, or anything i previously owned that was long enough.  I get super paranoid about my belly just popping out. 

Looking Forward To:  The holiday weekend/week... I have to work.  Can't afford to use any more PTO, so I'll be at work both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  I'm not too sad about it really.... trav will go in as well for a while, so it's not like I'll be missing anything super cool.  Sadie is here, but the rest of the fam (Bre and ben ) won't be here till Friday so we're doing our Christmas next weekend. 

Baby Shower #1 is the 29th..... seems surreal really.  I never really thought I'd be having a baby shower.... someone pinch me, cause it's happening!!!!

Oh and guess what my mother did while we were away this past weekend!!!! She pretty much finished up the nursery!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cried when i walked it.  I love it.  We're still waiting on the glider to get here, and have some small details (like hanging things) to do, but for the most part, it's ready....and it's stinking adorable.
