Almost 29 weeks!

The belly is getting BIGGER!
Far Along?  28 Weeks, 6 Days!  Can't believe I am this far along already... where does the time go?!?!

Total weight gain/loss: Gained a pound since my doctor visit- so +9 right now.  For third trimester (and almost 29 weeks) I am pretty ok with this!
 
Maternity clothes?Yep yep yep!  Lots of cute maternity tops, and I get some maternity tank tops that are long enough to go over my growing belly.  Still no official maternity pants.

Stretch marks? Had a minor freak out session this morning when I spotted the first official stretch mark. Its very small (no longer than a dime) and barely noticeable since its on the bottom of my belly, but I cried a little.  I know, i know, its going to happen, but i really wanted to make it through with none.  cocoa butter use has been stepped up since i found this little booger.

Size of Baby (in produce)? - size of a cabbage, 17 inches long, weights 3 pounds or so

Sleep: sleeping good- sleeping better than ever actually.  I got my snoogle in (or whatever the pillow is called) and it is beyond ahhhhmazing.  i never thought having this pillow would make such a huge difference, but it is beyond wonderful.  it supports my belly, my back, and my head, and my back hasn't hurt hardly at all this week!

Best moment this week:  This week was ok- atleast the work week was.  Lots of things going on at work, good things! :)  Thats all I can say about that...we went bowling on friday afternoon and Ledoux and I bowled a 144- which is my best score EVER!  It may or may not have been because I was sober... I have started re-decorating my patio so it looks awesome for the babyque party.  very, very excited.  I also had my glucose test the end of last week and all is well!  I am not surprised- I really wasn't that worried about it (especially since I haven't had hardly any sweets!)
 
Miss Anything? my husband of course. and i would have died for some cold sangria this weekend- it has been really warm outside and that would have been the perfect addition to a hot day.  I also really missed riding the harley with lee- i saw so many people out riding this weekend and i really miss that!!!!  some of my favorite recent memories are riding on the harley with lee.

Movement: Oh yes- the doctor told me to start counting kicks, she should be kicking 10 times an hour- and sometimes I dont count 10... which worries me a little but as long as I feel her move , im sure its fine.  I have an appointment next week, so I will talk to her about it then. 
 
Food cravings:Milk.  I cannot get enough milk.  I went through 3 of those half gallons this week.

New Additions? Nothing new for baby Ledoux- just waiting until after the baby shower to see what we need to buy.  Fingers crossed I get alot of the stuff I need at the shower!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope.
 
Have you started to show yet:  Belly is getting bigger by the minute I feel like- I literally woke up one morning and i swear my belly grew by leaps and bounds over night. 
 
Gender: Girl! (Although I have been having crazy dreams the baby comes out a boy?!?!)

Pregnancy related gripes? This week is the first time I have had an swelling- not alot, but my feet have been swelling up.  I was at an event for work Thursday and was on my feet most of the day, and when I took my shoes off for a second, I couldnt get them back on they were so swollen.  Other than that, not alot else- my back is much better this week thank goodness.  It is getting harder to do the usual things- like cleaning the house, etc. because I get so winded and tired so fast.  I can't tell where my ribcage ends and she begins anymore.


Labor Signs: No
 
Belly Button in or out? In
 
Wedding rings on or off? On
 
Happy or Moody most of the time: The work week was ok, I got sad this morning because i got a little overwhelmed- it was just a morning where I could have used an extra hand to help me out with some stuff... but i am holding up ok.  every week that goes by, it gets harder to be alone without lee.  I am ready to have someone here for help- not just around the house and stuff, but just someone to talk to and be my support system.
 
Looking forward to: The Babyque, and the long holiday weekend next weekend!  So excited to relax for three days and do nothing (but work on Ledoux's baby book and decorate the nursery a little).  Oh and I am excited about the 4-d ultrasound to see Little doodle's face!!!

Other news?  This week was pretty uneventful :)  and at this stage, I am totally fine with that!
Hey dad!  Missing you!
