29 Weeks

No pictures today. We're in the middle of a snow/ice wonderland. To only be at 200ft above sea level and have 6 inches of snow with a good coat of ice over it is pretty amazing. It warmed up today so it was starting to get a little slushy today but it's most likely frozen again by now. We've tried to not go out any more than we have to. Not because we don't know how to drive it it - because we definitely do - but there are some CRAZY drivers out there!!

I was supposed to go on a girls trip to the ocean this weekend but it got rescheduled because of the weather. There's actually snow on the beach!!! However, the only two dates that the cabin is open is Feb 2-4 and arch 9-11. A majority of the women going were able to go in March so that's when they changed it to. I'd be 36wks at that point so I won't be able to go. I'm a little bummed but totally understand.

Here's my stats for this week.
  • How far along are you? 29 weeks

  • Total weight gain: up 18lbs, plus whatever since my last appt

  • How big is baby?: I'm not keeping track anymore but he's definitely getting big!

  • Maternity clothes: same... except for this snow storm. I've been in pajama pants and a shirt pretty much the last few days. haha

  • Stretch marks?: No new ones.

  • Sleep?: Really good until about 5ish when Carver wakes up fussy and gets in bed with us. He's going through a separation anxiety with me right now.

  • Best moment this week?: The SNOW!!!

  • Movement?: Pretty consist - in the morning between 7-8am while I'm still in bed, and then in the evenings. He moves throughout the day but those times are when he's most active.

  • Food cravings?: Lattes :/ I'd have one every day if I could.

  • Food aversions?:Carrots. They make me sick - literally. It's really sad because soup sounds so good but all the cans we have have carrots in them and I don't want to chance not feeling good afterwards.

  • Labor signs?: nope. Thankfully!

  • Belly button in or out?: Slowly disappearing but has been trying to poke out the last couple nights.

  • What I miss: my Dr Pepper

  • What I'm looking forward to: Getting the results from my glucose test.

  • Milestone: We're getting towards the end. I'm kinda freaked about that. I just realized last night that I was 29 weeks and will, potentially, only have about 5 weeks left (if I get to 34 weeks).

  • I read somewhere that the reason people with this diagnosis go into labor early is because of excess amniotic fluid. I don't know how true or how common that is but that gives me more hope that I'll go more full-term.
