29 week bumpdate

How Far Along: 29 weeks and 5 days

Meds: All taken daily – prenatal vitamin, Omega 3 + DHA, Ranitidine (2x/day), Magnesium (250mg at bedtime as per my chiro’s recommendation), Gaviscon for heartburn as required (which is OFTEN!).

Baby is the size of: a pineapple or a winter squash

Best Moments This Week:

  • Making a few more purchases for baby
  • My husband getting excited about feeling him kick
  • Realizing I ONLY have just over 10 weeks left til my due date
  • Having my crib bedding arrive (more to come on this one!)
  • Watching the cat play under the crib. It’s his new favourite spot… which may be a bad thing.

Total Weight Gain: Didn’t weigh myself this week – AGAIN! My appetite has increased, so I expect a gain. As of 2 weeks ago, I was up 10.2 lbs.

Maternity Clothes: All the time now. Still loving anything cotton and stretchy.

Symptoms:

  • GROWTH SPURT! I swear I got huge this past week – or it just feels like that.
  • Less heartburn! I started going to acupuncture again and I would like to attribute the lessening of the heartburn/acid reflux to the treatment.
  • Leaky boobs!!! Yesterday, I was having a lazy, no-bra day at home. I looked down and I had wet spots on my shirt multiple times throughout the day. I haven’t noticed it yet today now that my bra is on though.
  • Sore back and shoulders
  • Peeing constantly. It feels like every half hour some days!

Sleep: Haven’t been sleeping great this week. Lots of tossing and turning. It’s hard to get comfortable.

Food Cravings:  Peaches, Snickers chocolate bars (this one is bad! haha), French Toast – which I have yet to fulfill

Anything making you queasy or sick: Smell of meat, cleaning left-overs out of the fridge, really stinky smells

Movement: He’s a rockin’ and a rollin’ in there. He was quiet mid-way through the week due to another growth spurt, but he kicked me all day long yesterday. My husband tends to miss the big kicks, but he loves feeling them when he can. The baby also loves to switch between punching my bladder and kicking my ribs. #shortwaistedproblems

Stretch Marks: Yes, on my lower tummy.

Baby Bump: Growing and growing…

Gender: BOY

Labour Signs: Too early.

Belly Button In or Out?: Innie

Wedding Rings on or off?: Off due to the heat.

Happy or Moody?: Very good week. We escaped to our friend’s cabin for the weekend. It felt great to unwind and relax by the lake.

Purchases for baby: A print from HomeSense to hang in the baby’s room; cloth diapers (more to come on this one too!),

Purchases for Momma: A breast pump 

Miss Anything?: Being able to sleep fully reclined, not having it be such a huge effort to get up from a seated/lying position,

Looking forward to: Our OB appointment later today!

  1. I love your skirt! I’m glad it’s been a good week for you. Do you get as excited for your OB appointments as I do my midwife appointments? Lol. I just love hearing Dumplin’s heartbeat, and hearing that everything is going well. Do you get ultrasounds at each of your OB appointments?

    • No he just checks the heartbeat, my blood pressure and measures my belly. It’s typically a short appointment but it’s reassuring. I am going to get a doctors note for mat leave this time to get that out of the way. The skirt is from Motherhood Maternity. Also came in navy and coral.

  2. Your looking soooo beautifully pregnant and I do think your baby bump had a growth spurt. You’ll notice it happening much faster now too. Can’t wait for more of your fun posts on what your buying for him. Any news onto it registry yet?
