29 Weeks


I'm almost 31 weeks, and totally forgot to take a picture at 30 weeks; oops!

I had another appointment on Monday after I turned 29 weeks. I'm only measuring a week ahead this time and the doctor said that totally normal, and everything else looked good. Little one seemed to be head down at the appointment but I think he is still flipping all around in there, as I can feel him trying to escape from all angles these days.

The doctor said that since Claire was week early she would guess that little man will be early too. This makes me extremely happy, as I am very uncomfortable right now, but at the same time, I will be pretty peeved if I go over due! haha.
If he does decide to come even a week early like his sister, that means we could be meeting him in about 8 weeks; crazy!


How far along? 
29 Weeks
Weight Gain?
15 lbs.
Maternity Clothes?
Yes! Some of my maternity shirts are getting tight. Nothing makes a pregnant girl feel ginormous more than maternity clothes getting to small!
Sleep:
I'm back to that dreaded first trimester sleepiness, where all I want to do is sleep all day long. Too bad Claire doesn't feel the same way.
Best Moment this week?
A baby shower for sweet little boy! It was so fun to have everyone come out and celebrate this new life that will be joining us soon.
Miss anything?
I miss not being kicked and punched in the stomach 24/7
Movement?
I've said it before...this kid is a ninja. He never stops moving, and it's getting to point of being rather painful! I feel like I have internal bruising in there!
Food cravings?
Really cold apples with a huge glass of ice water. Throw some tillamook cheddar cheese slices in there and I am one happy girl. I think I could eat 3-4 apples a day if I didn't limit myself.
Queasy or sick?
It's on and off, but most of my queasiness happens at night.
Started to show?
Yes
Labor Signs?
Some Braxton hicks here and there.
Belly button in or out?
In
Wedding rings on or off?
On, but getting a little snug by the end of the day.
Happy or moody?
It's been a fairly even tempered week around here.

Bath Time Surprise!


No, Claire didn't poop in the tub, if thats what you think the title means. 
Actually we've been very lucky, and have not had to deal with tub poop's at all so far!

Anyways.....

I was looking through old pictures and videos of Claire the other day, because obviously I needed to make my hormonal pregnant self even more emotional, and I came across this little gem. 
I almost forgot about this video, so I'm really glad I found it again. It makes Drew and I laugh every time!

We wanted to put claire in the big bath tub so she could be in deeper water, which of course meant one of us needed to get in with her and hold her squirmy little 2 month old body. Somehow I ended up being the one in the tub (don't worry I have a swimsuit on!) and Drew got to capture this little gem.


She sure looks pretty proud of herself, huh??

27 and 28 Weeks



How far along? 
27 Weeks 
Maternity Clothes?
Yes
Sleep:
I've been sleeping awful this week, even though I crawl into bed totally exhausted every night!
Best Moment this week?
Getting some organization in little man's room done. It sure feels good to have it look more like a nursery and less like a storage room ;)
Miss anything?
Nothing too exciting.
Movement?
He slowed down a lot this week, which led to a very nervous mama and lots of kick counting sessions, but all seems well.
Food cravings?
No
Queasy or sick?
I'm on and off with queasiness still, but I'm back to feeling okay most the time.
Started to show?
Oh yes.
Labor Signs?
No
Belly button in or out?
In
Wedding rings on or off?
On
Happy or moody?
A pretty happy week in our household.


How far along? 
28 Weeks  
Maternity Clothes?
Yes
Sleep:
I've been sleeping much better this week, but daylight savings is really kicking my butt!
Best Moment this week?
Realizing we're in the home stretch! Too bad the last trimester always feels the longest.
Miss anything?
Being able to quickly get up and down. I feel like a beached whale trying to get off the couch, out of bed, or just playing around on the floor with Claire.
Movement?
I'm thankful to say that after a slow movement week last week, our little man has decided to be his crazy active self again this week.
Food cravings?
Milk. I do not drink a lot of milk, and it really only sounds good with certain foods, but lately I've been drinking a huge glass with breakfast. It's been like this for a month of two now, but I guess I only just realized that I could consider that a craving haha 
Queasy or sick?
Feeling better most the time. I'm usually a bit queasy after dinner every night.
Started to show?
Yes
Labor Signs?
No
Belly button in or out?
In
Wedding rings on or off?
On
Happy or moody?
It's been a hormonal roller coaster for a week lately. Sorry hubby!
