Second Pregnancy :: Week 29

Second Pregnancy :: Week 29

this was our balcony – not bad

Age of baby #1:
19 months (which will make them ~21.5 months apart)

How far along:
29 weeks

How big is baby:
the size of an acorn squash

Weight gain:
Once again, do you think I’ve stepped on a scale after 10 days of an all-inclusive vacation?!  I think not. I’ll report back next week on weight gain.

Maternity clothes:
Same as Week 28…bathing suits, maxi dresses, and other warm weather attire.

Stretch marks:
None yet.

Belly button:

I’ve been sleeping relatively well!   Oh, and at the Four Seasons in Punta Mita, we walked into our room and there was a maternity pillow waiting for me…man alive I’m glad I don’t have one of those at home.  It was a nice gesture of the resort, but that pillow was HUGE…I felt like it was attacking me the whole night.  Actually, it only attacked me for about two hours because I tossed it on the ground once I realized how annoying it was.

Best moment of the week:
Reuniting with Abigail. Kiki and Gappy brought her into the airport and when we rounded the corner after gathering our bags, she came running up to us and wrapped her adorable little arms around us…I don’t want to sound too cheesy, but I think I shed a few tears. It was a perfect reunion. Being away was amazing, but there’s really no place like home.

Food cravings:
We’ll stick with the chocolate croissants from last week’s post.

Food aversions:


1. Heartburn. Heartburn. And more heartburn.
2. Red spots on my arms, chest, and face.
3. Random shortness of breath.
4. Feeling huge.

Still the most active baby on Earth. All day, every day. Must mean she’s happy!


What I’m looking forward to:
My doctor’s appointment on Wednesday. That, and cooking again…eating healthy…working out…getting back into the routine of normal life!

What I’m nervous about:
Nothing that I can think of.

What I miss: 
Once again, the warm weather in Mexico. It took me 10 days to get my tan and it’ll probably take 2 days for it to fade away thanks to the lack of sun in San Francisco. Waaaa!!!

This was called “Maternity at a Distance” – I couldn’t help myself!

Next appointment:
August 22nd

    I took 150mg Zantac every single day with Vivien- doctor okayed it. Have you tried taking one of those in the morning? I promise, it works. I took them every day so regularly that Eli was convinced V was going to be born with three heads.
    You look GORGEOUS! 🙂

      First of all, thank you! Secondly, what exactly does Zantac do (probably a dumb question)?? Hope you guys are doing super well!!

      • Megan B.B. says:

        Zantac is a heartburn pill. You take one daily in the morning, and it’s like magic, the heartburn never comes. And I would eat like super heartburn nasty foods too and it would never come. You can get it everywhere, Walgreens, Safeway, etc.
        Seriously, try it, it works way better than Tums.
