29 weeks!

What’s going on this week:

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.

My Update:

Due Date: November 4, 2011 – 77 days to go!  (I’ve started going in for midwife appointments every two weeks now!)

Weight Gain: +15 lbs from pre-preg weight.  No change this week.

Symptoms:  Nothing particularly new here.

Cravings/Aversions:  Still crushed ice.

Sleep:  Pretty good the last 4-5 nights.  Scott and I have been going for walks still in the evenings, and I think that is making is even easier for me to fall asleep and stay asleep really well.

I am loving:  My belly.  I really do love it.

I miss:  Not feeling winded after going up the stairs.

Movement:  Still really good!  Lots of belly-shaking kicks.  I like it especially when someone else gets to see them..it’s fun to share.  🙂

Nursery progress:  I spackled the nail holes!  Hurray!

Exercise: Still walking most nights…although I skipped yoga this week.

Looking forward to:  The baby shower in Houston on the 3rd.

Belly Shot:

Thanks to Lisa for the hand-me-down dress. This was the first time I wore it and got 2 compliments!
