28/29 Week Survey

How Far Along: 29 weeks - Officially in my 3rd trimester!!

Size of baby: Butternut Squash (appropriate for the time of year).

Your baby now weighs about 2 1/2 pounds (like a butternut squash) and is a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel. His muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and his head is growing bigger to make room for his developing brain. To meet his increasing nutritional demands, you'll need plenty of protein, vitamins C, folic acid, and iron. And because his bones are soaking up lots of calcium, be sure to drink your milk (or find another good source of calcium, such as cheese, yogurt, or enriched orange juice). This trimester, about 250 milligrams of calcium are deposited in your baby's hardening skeleton each day.

Wanna take a look inside??

Maternity Clothes: yes! :)

Gender: It's a surprise!!

Movement: Yes, all the time.

What I Miss: Oh man...it is getting harder.  So far pregnancy has been pretty good to me but I am starting to feel it now.  With packed weeks and hardly a night to rest my belly will feel heavy and I will feel sick much easier. So, I miss normalicy. But I am defninitely going to enjoy pregnancy!!

Sleep: Still sleeping fine! Praise the Lord!

Cravings: Not many lately!

Best Moment This Week: Hmm...my last big event at work is done! That is exciting.  A milestone for me. So glad that the rest of my pregnancy will be regular desk work. They are trying to get a replacement in for me to train by November 28.  That is coming so soon! That would mean less than 6 weeks with just me at my desk.  Yikes!

What We Are Looking Forward To: Showers!!! They are nice and spread out I have one October 29, November 9, and November 19!! yay!! Thank you to everyone who is having a shower for me! I feel so blessed.

I will have a picture next post!! I will be 30 weeks!! Crazy how time flies.
