29 Weeks

Size: Baby is the size of a butternut squash. Aprroximately 2 1/2lbs and just over 15 inches long.

Symptoms: Sore back after going for long walks. Stuffy nose in the mornings. My headaches come back back quite often.

Movement: The babes kicks are very strong, but I still love them. It's funny how you can love being kicked so much. The baby seems to like to punish my left side more than the right. Maybe the babe is a lefty just like its momma.

Stretch Marks: My old ones on my hips are more noticeable now that I  am bigger. No new ones so far.

Belly Button: My button looks ridiculous. I had a little slit for a belly button and now its huge and is starting to flatten out. The scar where my bully button ring was looks pretty nasty, it's all stretched out and huge.

Sleep: I am so lucky I lasted so long not having to get up and go pee in the night. I wake up a couple of times a night to stretch, pee, and drink some water. I am loving my mid day naps again.

I caught a flu bug this past week. The flu is already the worst but when your pregnant you seem to feel 10 times as awful. As soon as I felt like I was going to throw up the babe would do a little dance and push me over the edge. My heaves were so strong I even peed my pants!! :(

I went for my glucose test when I felt better. The orange drink that everyone curses isn't really that awful. The last couple of sips are a little bit hard to swallow because it's so sweet. But I just kept on pretending I was drinking flat orange soda.

Still feeling good and getting hilariously bigger.


  1. I think you look incredible!! Happy 29 weeks!!

  2. the flu!?! you poor thing!! i hear you about the belly button...i was bit by a mosquito this weekend right in the middle of mine and it drove me absolutely nuts! which led to me tinkering around with it and then my piercing scar...which is now all nasty and infected :( love the bumpdate though, and as always, you look great!

  3. So sorry to hear you got the flu...that's the last thing you want as a pregnant person!

    You look great!
