29 Weeks

I started this fun little weekly update at this point in my pregnancy with Travis, and I thought it would be fun to see the comparison between pregnancies.  CANNOT for the life of me figure out where the last 23ish weeks went what with the vomiting, the moving, the holidays, the house building, the photography business, and the toddler.... WOWSER!!

How far along?: 29 weeks. But measuring almost 32 weeks. Super human uterus growth!!
Total weight gain: I was apparently still super vain at this point with Travis because I was already "intentionally omitting" it.  I ended up gaining 56 lbs. with him, and it looks like I'm headed for half a hundred again.  I'm up 30 so far.  I just do pregnant really big apparently - I think I could eat celery the whole time and still pack on the pounds.  I'm not gonna test my celery theory though so don't judge....
How big is baby?: Books say 2.5 lbs., but doctor guesses running large again
Maternity clothes?: Most definitely. I still try to wear my pre-preg track suits, but they get pretty obscene with the 3 inches of bare midriff going on...
Stretch marks?: Yes, all of my purple friends are back and they've brought new friends!
Sleep?: Not too bad considering my toddler gets up at the butt crack of dawn and has two new molars to show for his spring break.  I still love my snoogle!
Best moment this week?: Seeing the roof go on the house and knowing that we will be in there in no time.  I'm a little sad that Miss Maryn isn't getting her room all decorated right now, but such is life!  She and Travis will have an awesome house for the rest of their at-home years and that is what is important!
Movement?: She is a little spaz - I love it!  With T, I was sitting at a desk so I really got to know his total daytime patterns.  I hardly have time to settle down and enjoy her wiggles until about bedtime.  She usually puts on a good show about 9 pm.
Food cravings?: I've been drinking a ton of juice lately.  And sweet tarts.  And cinnamon rolls.  :)
Labor signs?: None.
Belly button in or out?: Flat.
What I miss: Not getting up to pee at night.
What I'm looking forward to: 3D Ultrasound.  We did T's at 29w3d, and so we will be doing M's soon.
Milestone: Getting registered at the hospital.  Super fun to say "no maternity coverage thank you very much".  I do get a 40% cash discount.  You know how I love getting a good bargain... :)
