How far along: 28 weeks 1 day
How big is baby:
probably already getting a little preview of baby’s personality, the
more your feel him move. You might get some playful kicks and jabs, and
start to feel little hiccups, too! At 29 weeks, he’s not just moving a
lot, he’s also plumping up. And as he continues to put pressure on your
digestive system, you’re going to feel the effects: hemorrhoids,
heartburn, pelvic pain and frequent urination are all common at this
stage in the game. Week 29 is a good time to start finalizing stuff,
like stocking the nursery with baby care essentials and checking out a
few potential day cares. You’ll also want to start packing a few things
you know you’ll want with you at the hospital at baby’s birth. Leave it
by the door, so you can add stuff you think of along the way -- and so
you can grab it at a moment’s notice.
Maternity clothes: yup definitely.
Sleep: Still not sleeping well. I think this is just a permanent fixture :)
Best moment of the week: Seeing my sister and her getting to feel AJ kick!!
Food aversions: Nothing really.
cravings: Nothing really.
Symptoms: Throwing up wasn't too bad this week but I definitely did a few times, lots of nausea, back aches, leg cramps, sore belly
Movement: All sorts of movement every day!
What I’m looking forward to: Both of my Baby Showers are in the next 14 days!!! I am SOOOOOOO ExCiTED!
Next appt: This week! I get to meet a Natural Birth Friendly doctor in the practice and I can't wait to talk to her about a birth plan!! :0)
