How far along:
29 weeks

How big is baby:
The size of a head of a butternut squash.

Weight gain this week (followed by total weight gain for this pregnancy thus far):
1 lb (23 lbs total)

Maternity clothes:
For the most part, I’m still wearing my “uniform” – sweats/workout clothes/etc – but yesterday I splurged and bought a new pair of jeans and two tops (that were on sale and they were buy one get one free…that sort of makes up for the price of the jeans). I have a feeling I’ll be wearing these jeans anytime I need to look like a “real person” before Caroline arrives (and probably for a while afterward too because they’re so comfy).  I’m very happy with them.

Stretch marks:
None.

Belly button:
Innie, but starting to creep out a bit like last time.

Sleep:
My cold is back (what the heck!? I take such good care of myself and I sleep 8 hours a night…why do I keep getting sick!?).  Needless to say, breathing at night has been rough and therefore sleep has been a little rough as well.

Best moment of the week:
Abby having a great first day of preschool.

Food cravings:
Nothing specific. I’ve been eating a lot of chicken curry, but that’s because I made a huge batch on Saturday and Travis has been gone ever since so I’ve been eating leftovers every night. Easy peasy.

Food aversions:
None.

Symptoms:
Additional Stress.
I’ve been really tired.
Heartburn.
Weight gain.
Growing belly.
My red spots are getting more red.
General tired feeling.
Sometimes Caroline moves into strange, uncomfortable positions. Ugh…not my favorite…luckily, it never lasts that long.

Movement:
Active as ever. Especially at night. 9pm is her most active time.

Gender:
Caroline is a GIRL!

What I’m looking forward to:
My parents showing up tomorrow, Travis coming home on Thursday, a trip to San Luis Obispo this weekend, Hawaii next week, and Napa the following week…just a few things to look forward to…!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What I’m nervous about:
Being sick for the rest of my pregnancy.

What I miss:
Being sans bump. As much as I love my bump, I really miss not having it sometimes…like when I want to sleep on my belly at night…or like when I’m in my closet and I spot one of my favorite non-maternity dresses that I can’t wait to fit into again…soon enough, right!?

Next appointment:
March 10th – right around the corner…it got moved up because of our trip to Hawaii. Woohoo!
