29 weeks.

Late again.  Sorry folks.  We had a SUPER busy Sunday.  Jordan and I played/sang in church {my last time... *sniff sniff*}, then we had a birthday party for Lucy Boes 1st birthday {Happy Birthday pretty girl!}, and THEN we had small group.  We finally made it home around 8pm and just crashed.  Two days later I am just now feeling energized. ;-)

Anyway - Here is the 29 week update!!

Today's date: January 11, 2011

How far along: 29 weeks {and 2 days}

Total weight gain: Between 20-21 lbs... ooohhh how hard it is to see that weight go to 20!!!!!  Still on track though.  If I gain 10lbs more, that will be perfect.

Size and growth of the baby: Your baby now weighs about 2 1/2 pounds (like a butternut squash) and is a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel.


Maternity clothes: EVERYTHING!!

Sleep: Getting harder... it is hard to stay comfortable.
Best moment(s) of the week:  We had our first childbirth class this past week!!  I LOVED IT.  Jordan was very impressed too.  I'll do an update about that in more detail another time.

Movement: LOTS of movement.  Fewer kicks, but I am feel a lot more of the small movements.

Food cravings/aversions:  Nothing at the moment!

Morning sickness: Feeling good!!
Symptoms: Achy back.  That is the main thing.
Labor signs:
  Nothing yet.  Not even any braxton hicks.

Belly button in or out:  
Pretty shallow -- we'll see if it lasts!

What I miss:  Sleeping on my stomach.

What I'm looking forward to: Another childbirth class this week... and 2 showers coming up!  Baby stuff is so fun!!

What's happening this week:
His muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and his head is growing bigger to make room for his developing brain. To meet his increasing nutritional demands, you'll need plenty of protein, vitamins C, folic acid, and iron. And because his bones are soaking up lots of calcium, be sure to drink your milk (or find another good source of calcium, such as cheese, yogurt, or enriched orange juice). This trimester, about 250 milligrams of calcium are deposited in your baby's hardening skeleton each day.
