Acorn Squash

January 29, 2013

How far along are you? 29 weeks

Sleep? Thankful for the days I actually can sleep.

Best moment? Ringing in a new year with my hubs!

Movement? Kicking up a storm!

Any food cravings/aversions? I'm still craving anything sweet and my food aversions change every day.

Gender? BOY!!

Belly button? It's still an innie!!

What I miss? Sleeping on my back...

Looking forward to anything? More like NOT looking forward to my heart doctor appointment.

Symptoms this week: Nausea, Braxton Hicks, constipation, peeing all the time

Wedding rings? No, sadly. I miss my wedding rings.

Maternity clothes? belly band

What TheBump says: You're probably already getting a little preview of baby's personality, the more you feel him move. You might get some playful kicks and jabs, and start to feel little hiccups, too! At 29 weeks, he's not just moving a lot, he's also plumping up. And as he continues to put pressure on your digestive system, you're going to feel the effects; hemorrhoids, heartburn, pelvic pain and frequent urination are all common at this stage in the game.  Week 29 is a good time to start finalizing stuff, like stocking the nursery with baby care essentials and checking out a few potential day cares. You'll also want to start packing a few things you know you'll want with you at the hospital at baby's birth. Leave it by the door, so you can add stuff you think of along the way -- and so you can grab it at a moment's notice. Your baby's the size of an acorn squash! Baby already measures about 15.2 to 16.7 inches long. Right now, he weighs about 2.5 to 3.8 pounds but he's still got a ways to go -- can you believe he'll triple in weight before birth? He's getting a little cramped in there, since he's growing so fast. But you probably already realize that, since you're getting all those jabs and kicks. He's growing white fat deposits under his skin, and his energy is surging because of it. Feel a subtle twitch? It might be baby hiccupping.
