One week closer to running again!!! Surprisingly this has snuck up on me! It feels like just yesterday we found all of this out and were so caught off guard. Now we're in the third trimester and anxiously awaiting our new delivery!! I don't know where my mind has been and although we are prepared for the most part I still can't seem to understand how I have so much left to do! We've been down this road before. We've got the T-shirts...so why does it seem so different this time? I tried packing hospital bags this weekend but just can't seem to decide what to take and what not to take. I have no idea if I'll be ready on time. I'm probably going to have my waters break while standing next to a tractor at work and need to call my husband to take me home and get things ready! LoL Oh well...another week down 11 to go!!
Total Weight Gain: 14 pounds!
This week, Baby is the size of a: head of califlower!!!
How far along? 29 weeks, 5 das
Due date: 15 Dec 2012
Total weight gain/loss: +1 lb
Maternity clothes? Nope....I'm way WAY too stubborn!!
Sleep: I sleep like a coma patient!! Even Lil Mister is starting to sleep more at night! Love IT!!
Best moment this week: When I set up LJ's crib, Lil Mister came and tried to climb in claiming it was his. Now this was true...6 months ago. But now we sleep in a big-boy bed. I calmly explained this is now where LJ will dudu and Liam dudu's here next to LJ in Liam's big boy bed. Liam immediately climbed in his bed patted the pillow and said "Liam LJ dudu" In his language this meant they are both sleeping together! hehe LJ is officially Lil Misters friend! (11 weeks away! ;-])
Food cravings: OMW...MEXICAN!! And not the faux-thentic mex I can make at home! I miss Mi Pueblito, the genuine Mex restaurant from back home where my family ate like every EVERY weekend and I was friends with the owners sons! Yea that REAL Mexican...:-(
Movement: He is actually making me sore...:-(
Symptoms: LJ is all up in my back lately!! I'm considering alternative methods j/k but really!
Labor Signs: Nope!
Stretch Marks: nope and we’re working hard to keep it that way!
Swelling? Just my feet and ankles still...my face seems a little swollen as well :-/
Belly Button in or out? its definitely almost out.
What I miss: breathing normally!! I've officially transferred into the full on "out of breath just tying my shoes" stage and I'm not liking it. Oh and still running!
Feeling toward Pregnancy: It has gone by so much more quickly than Lil Mister. I'm getting the nervousness!!
What I am looking forward to: LJ's first smile. Okay I know it is far away but heck it was one of the most precious moments with Lil Mister!
Milestones: I set the crib back up!! I'm busy looking for a compactum like Lil Misters' because I've turned his into a dresser (works wonderful!!) so...Now I need a NEW one for LJ!! ;-) Check the awesome bedding! It was Hubby's and then Lil Misters and now I'm using it for LJ!! Then we pack it away until the boys use it one day again!!
