Pregnancy Update #4

How far are we: 29 weeks and 5 days.

How big is baby: Connor is about 15 inches long and weighs about 2.5 to 3.5 pounds. He is the size of an acorn squash!

Total weight gain: 19.2 pounds. My belly is getting so big! I sometimes feel like I've gained so much more than just 19 pounds but according to my doctors, I'm doing great! I was told on Friday that my weight is perfect.

Maternity clothes: I'm wearing all maternity bottoms but my tops are a mixture. I had to get bigger bras. Holy smokes! The girls are totally out and proud. 

Stretch marks: NONE! I have been diligent about lotioning up each morning.

Movement: All the time. I am also having Braxton Hicks contractions. For those of you who haven't experience those or haven't gotten to that point yet, it's like a quick little spasm. It doesn't hurt and for a while I thought it was Connor tap dancing on my whoha.

Sleep: No problems at all. I have started sleeping with a pillow in between my knees to help with some pressure I've been feeling in my back. But I usually wake up once to pee and then head right back to bed.

Best moment this week: We painted Little Misters room and ordered his furniture. I'm hoping that by this time next month, I will have the majority of his room put together.

Food cravings: I don't have any cravings but I tend to choose foods that have marinara sauce in them. I love pizza, spaghetti and steak hoagies. You know, lots of crabs and calories!

Labor signs: None and I'd like it to stay that way.

Belly button in or out: In and I think I have a while before it's an outtie.

What I miss: I'd love to be able to walk and talk at the same time. When I'm walking with girlfriends, I get really winded if I try to talk and walk. And if there is an incline, I'm a mess!

What I'm looking forward to: We have a 3D/4D ultrasound scheduled on the 25th. I'm so excited to see Connor. I'm hoping we will be able to see if he looks like me or his Daddy.


  1. I am so excited for you right now! When Jeremy and I had our 3D ultrasound, we could tell right away that he had my lips. It is so insane seeing this tiny person and their tiny features while they're still inside the womb. You're such a wonderful mommy already and I don't think you could do any better of a job right now! Seriously!

    P.S. - I never did have an outie and if you think the girls are crazy now, wait until the inflate with milk and then deflate later on. It's crazy what being prego can do to your body!

  2. You look fantastic! The 3D/4D ultrasound is fun. Enjoy!
