Week 29

How far along: 29 weeks, 5 days

Size of Baby S: 15 in, 2.5 lbs

Fruit/vegetable comparison (according to Baby Center): butternut squash

Sleep: Great!

Movement: Yes. And this week we felt hiccups for the first time! :-)

Unglamorous body changes: I think I noticed slight and very faint stretch marks. Dang. :-/

Also, still a little restless leg syndrome, especially after the long days we've been having running around. However, Jason found a solution for it. We will administer the cure when we return to Norway on Tuesday...

Maternity Clothes? Yep.

Showing: Yep. :-) And I got to take advantage of being an expectant mom this week when shopping.

Food cravings: None. I finally got my Ooh La La cupcake which was nice. But I also discovered my sweets-eating powers are gone. :-( We split one and I could barely eat my half of the icing. However, it was still delicious!!

What I miss: Lunch meat still. Although Jason did let me have a little bit while we were here after making sure the person taking our order was well aware that they needed to heat the meat up a lot before giving it to me. Then he stuck his finger in my sandwich to check it. Mmmm, delicious.

Anything making you queasy: Nope.

Strange experiences: The hiccups for sure! Steph, my sister-in-law, also asked me if I had been feeling any braxton-hicks contractions. I don't think I have, but last night I might have felt something that could have been them now that she described to me what they feel like.

Milestones: Her muscles and lungs are developing and her head is getting bigger to make more room for her developing brain. (I hope this doesn't mean I get more airhead moments while she steals my brain cells...) The skeleton and bones are forming and I need to make sure and get my calcium intake from milk or other sources to keep up with her growth.

Best moment this week: Again there were multiple! :-) Taking bluebonnet maternity pictures were definitely one. Our friend Marianne with Charade Photography did an amazing job and I can't wait to see the rest! Here's a sneak peek at one that I know is going to be a favorite.

Last night we babysat our three-year old niece Sydney and six-month old nephew Jaiden. I absolutely love and adore seeing Jason with both of them. It makes me smile this goofy amazing smile and realize just how blessed I am to have a husband and father-to-be who is so good with kids. I cannot wait to see him with our little daughter!! Except when he tickles her nonstop. ;-)

Looking forward to: Unpacking our air shipment after it arrives in a few weeks! I am so excited to setup our little girls room and start making crafting for her and nesting.
