29: Dates with Our Dudes

Along: 29 weeks

Size of baby:  Pineapple- baby weighs around 3 pounds and continues to put on more baby fat each week. His/her eyes are completely in place and vision will continue to improve over next 10 weeks.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 20-23 pounds- weigh in on Friday!

Maternity Clothes: Thankful for all shirts that stretch, pants that have elastic waist, and dresses with a little extra belly room.

Gender: We think boy but would be over the moon with either! Matt is pretty sure if it’s a girl, he will never be able to say no. He even found this article talking about how fathers’ brains respond differently to daughters than sons.   

Movement: This baby moves and moves- so thankful for it!    

Sleep: This week has been better- not sure why but praise Jesus. I definitely have to move around a lot to get comfortable. I think baby is running out of room because we both seem to toss and turn. I’ve been able to fall back asleep when I wake up, so really- that’s a huge improvement. 

What I miss: Ability to bend over easily, being able to sit for long periods of time, having high energy levels. I am wiped come dinner time. 

Cravings: PB&J sandwiches- weird right?  

Symptoms: back pain, sore hips, swollen hands and feet by the end of the night

Best Moment This Week:  Three day weekends are always my favorite- we each took the boys on separate dates. Matt took Noah for a legit haircut and dinner at Jason’s deli. Deacon requested Chick-fil-a which I happily obliged. We met up for popsicles to finish off the night. Both boys were smiling ear to ear, loving that special one on one time. It was a sweet memory- very thankful to be a mama to two VERY special boys who provide so much fun and joy. Can’t wait to see what our little nugget brings to the table in August.
