Bump Date - 29 Weeks

How far along: 29 Weeks!!
77 days to go till my due date!  

Baby Size: The size of an butternut squash, weights around 2 1/2 pounds, and is a tad over 15 inches long.

Weight gain:  still sitting at +9 pounds

Maternity clothes: all maternity, I really don't want to stretch out my regular clothes so I am sticking too all maternity right now.  I am thankful for #1, my friend Ali.  She has been an amazing support through this pregnancy (and the one before).  Not only has she been an amazing support, but she also has given us so many baby things AND pretty much supplied all of my maternity clothing.  Ali you are the GREATEST!!!

Stretch marks: Still none and I am OK with that!  :) 
Sleep: really great!  I get up once to use the bathroom and that's about it.  I have zonked out pretty quickly lately and I hope it stays that way! 
Gender: Baby BOY!!

Movement: Feeling him move and more everyday and LOVING it!!!  

Best moment this week: Doctor's appointment yesterday (Wednesday)!  Heard his heartbeat and he is measuring perfectly!  
Looking forward to: 

Food cravings: blueberry muffins, apple slices, cherries, veggie sticks
  Anything making you queasy or sick: just having odd days of eating.  One day I will be starving all day long, the next day I have a hard time eating.  I am not a fan of cooked foods right now either.  I'd rather have a salad or fresh stuff over anything right now.  Oh and I made a lasagna Monday night, ate about 4 bites of it and was done.  HATED IT!!!
Labor Signs: None, let's keep it this way for another 9+ weeks!
What I miss: liking Italian food, sleeping on my stomach, being able to remember things, the energy to get the things I want done on my list
Symptoms: upper back ache and exhaustion (nothing new)

Nursery: needing to find a curtain rod for the baby room, hang the shelf, sell the changing table since we are not using the one we inherited from my brother, and put the furniture protector on the glider (nothing new here because we didn't get to any of this last week.....LOL!)

Belly Button in or out? still an innie

Wedding rings on or off? On!  Hoping they stay on the entire time!!  I do take my ring off while I sleep now because I have noticed swelling while sleeping.  Otherwise my ring is still on during the day and fits like the same.

Mood: I've been ok, not bad but nothing too great.... I have begun the nesting mode and we have a list of stuff to do before he comes.  I am also soooooooooo looking forward to maternity leave.  I really need a change of pace for awhile and get away from work.  I haven't taken a real vacation since our honeymoon in 2012.
