How far along: 29 weeks
How big is baby: About the size of a small cabbage, or 17 inches long (although that kind of depends on his genetics. He might be a bit smaller than that). Weight is around 2.9 pounds.
Newest baby developments: He’s growing white fat deposits under his skin, which is giving him extra energy (and is probably why I feel like he’s trying to make a jailbreak all day every day haha). Hopefully he’ll be nice and plump and adorable by the time he makes his appearance!
Movement: Pretty consistent, and usually around the same times too (he probably has a sleep schedule figured out by this point). When I wake up in the morning and roll over, he starts to move. From there it’s usually a couple of hours of rest with small movements in between followed by like an hour of more intense acrobatics — so much that my whole belly gets shifted all over the place. It’s pretty fun to watch. 🙂
Weirdest symptoms: Shortness of breath, itchy belly (lotion and coconut oil are my best friends), and peeing every two minutes.
Best moment this week: DEFINITELY my niece Madelyn being born!!! If you’re friends with me or my sister on Facebook, you know that her birth story is like the craziest and coolest thing ever. That little girl sure knows how to make an entrance. 😉 I fell in love with Madelyn the second I saw her and I only get more and more obsessed! She is so tiny and perfect. I can’t wait to give her a cousin in just a few months! (although whenever I hold her near my belly, Jameson kicks her straight in the butt hahah)
Worst moment this week: Really no bad moments this week! Madelyn was born on Monday, my birthday was on Wednesday, we got to volunteer with our church on Friday…all great things!
Cravings: Same old, same old. No real cravings, I just happen to be in the mood for certain things.
Looking forward to: Our church is having a sort of pot luck thing after service tonight which should be fun! And I’ve sent out most of my baby shower invitations! Life is good.
