Week 29

You are the size of a butternut squash, and this week your head is growing to make room for his developing brain.

Yes, I'm SUPER exhausted now.  I'm having to take naps again when your sister takes them - almost daily.  Walking and doing chores are really difficult with the lack of energy, but I'm still going!

Had our 28 week doctor appointment this week and everything was PERFECT!  Had the Rhogam shot (Momma is RH-) and also the gestational diabetes test, which was fine as well.  Very grateful because I'm NOT in the mood to give up cookies!!

Stats for the Week:
Mood: more emotional train wreck.  :)
Cravings: Chocolate chip cookies...AUGH!  Why can't it be apples?!

Week 28

You are the size of a head of iceberg lettuce, and you take 20 to 30 minute naps regularly these days.

Well, I hit the third trimester mark, and already starting to get tired again.  I thought it was from moving, but it's definitely just me slowing down a little bit.  I've still been putting on more weight than I like, so your sister and I started walking almost daily.  I'm hoping that it will at least remove the extra cookie calories.  :)

Stats for the Week:
Mood: Happy again!
Energy: Tired, but enjoying lots of 30 minute walks.
Cravings: Jelly...don't ask me why.

Week 27

You are the size of a head of cauliflower, and you're growing fast! Since the 12-week mark, your crown-to-rump length has probably tripled.

Another week of unpacking and getting ready for your arrival! I've ordered a few things for you that have come in such as a pillow and cushion for your rocker. The changing pad cover came in as well. I'm loving the yellow and gray and can't wait to paint your room! Dad just painted sister's room and it looks amazing and I know yours will as well. You've been doing great, just kicking and moving like crazy. I love you!!!

Stats for the Week:
Mood: Emotional, very. Just ask your Dad. :)
Energy: Tired, but enjoying lots of 30 minute walks.
Cravings: Sweet things. Augh!

Week 26

You are nearly as long as a zucchini, and your eyebrows and eyelashes are thick and lush.

This has been kind of a crazy week. We got moved into our new house and then took a few days off because we were exhausted. I couldn't do a whole lot being pregnant. It's been a little frustrating, but I'll do anything to protect you and keep you safe. We have your stuff in your room and got in your furniture, but we need to paint first before we arrange and assemble everything. It's going to be so cute!

Stats for the Week:
Mood: Emotional
Energy: Tired from moving.
Cravings: Sweet things.

Week 25

You are the size of a rutabaga, and your fingerprints have now formed.

Okay, a little late on this picture (sorry!).

Had another Doctor's appointment this week. You were great - heart rate in the 140's. Unfortunately, I gained 11 pounds. :(. I'm not sure, but I think the raspberry doughnuts are to blame. ;). I've gained about 35 pounds so far. That's about as much as I wanted to gain the entire pregnancy, so I'm a little disappointed, but very pleased and grateful that you are healthy and that everything is going well otherwise. In my defense, we've been eating out a lot while we've been finishing packing and I think that I've retained a lot of fluid from the salt. That's my story anyway and I'm sticking to it! ;)

Stats for the Week:
Mood: Happy.
Energy: Tired from moving.
Cravings: I still can't get those dang doughnuts off my mind...
