29 Weeks

I kicked off my 29th week with an OB appointment this morning! Nugget is growing perfectly, and the heartbeat was strong! I measured exactly at 29 weeks. My doctor decided not to check for dilation today, since I had just had it done (just under 1 cm), and it's not good to do it too frequently unless absolutely necessary. That's fine with me! I got a bit of a lecture on how I need to gain more weight and stay off my feet more, but he's happy with my progress so far.

DATE:
May 23, 2011

How far along:
29 weeks!

Total Weight Gained:
I gained back 2 1/2 pounds of the weight I lost.

How big is baby? Nugget is just over 15 inches long and weighs 2 1/2 pounds.

How baby is growing: Nugget's muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and his/her head is growing bigger to make room for the developing brain. babycenter.com

Maternity Clothes: I'm wearing my regular clothes. My regular pants still easily fit, thanks to the fact that I'm carrying so high!

Sleep: I wake up more frequently to pee and flip over.

Best Pregnancy Moment of the Week:
Hearing the heartbeat again this morning. I love it!

Movement
: Nugget spends more time moving than sleeping! He/She loves to flip over and stretch. I love feeling the little feet, elbows, bum, and knees sticking out! The baby hiccups are very noticeable now!

Food Cravings: I haven't had any cravings yet.

Food Aversions:
Lemonade, oranges...anything citrus!

Morning Sickness:
Morning sickness is with me 24/7, though it's more tolerable than it used to be. I still take Zofran daily.

Gender:
It's a surprise!

Symptoms:
Morning (all day) sickness, breakouts, strong and frequent Braxton Hicks contractions, and a general feeling of being uncomfortable.

Exercise: I'm allowed to keep up with my daily walk, but that's about it!

What I miss:
Not feeling sick!!!

What I'm looking forward to:
Passing the 30 week mark! That's the point where I went into preterm labor with Dylan, so it's a relief to get past it!
