BB2.0: 29 Weeks

I am constantly surprised at how quickly the weeks are passing, and I know time is only going to pass even more quickly considering it's already Holiday time.  February 11 (hopefully sooner but not too much sooner) will be here before we know it!  I feel exhausted as usual but I must look it today, too, because Dan asked me if I was feeling okay tonight.  Sweet man.  I'm going to try to keep it brief because it's movie date night here at the Baums.  Hurray!

Size of Baby Boy:  A butternut squash.

He weighs 2.5 lbs (I'm guessing he actually weighs 2.5 lbs x 2) and is slightly longer than 15 inches from head to toe.  His head is growing bigger (GREAT.) to make room for his growing brain (he better get a scholarship).

Weight Gain So Far:  Per the scale this morning, still somewhere between 18-19 lbs, which is surprisingly exactly where I was last time around at this point.

Cravings:  I am still enjoying sweets WAY too much.  I am proud of myself, though, that I have yet to consume a single Chick Fil A Peppermint Chocolate Shake...although a dream of them nightly.

I am trying to hold off as long as I can because I know once I have one I'll want another one every hour day.

Aversions:  Still nothing to speak of, thankfully.

Symptoms:  Not too much change here: exhaustion, insomnia and peeing every 30 seconds.  Also itchy skin, which is probably actually more likely due to the colder weather than the pregnancy but it's still annoying.

Movement:  My little man knows how to throw a real rager in the womb!  He goes nuts, and I wish every day that I could see what he's doing in there.

What I  Miss:  Not one thing comes to mind here.

Signs of a Bump:  Ah, yes.

And here's what L looked like at 29 weeks:

What I'm Thankful For:  So much to be thankful for, I don't even know where to begin.  I'll just start with being thankful that I get to spend the next five days with my sweet little family.

What I'm Looking Forward To:  So much!  Completed construction and nursery decorating (crib ordering happens tomorrow because I have a 20% off coupon, hooray for my procrastination paying off!).  Eating so much delicious food that I won't be able to move on Thursday.  Cute Christmas jammies which will be worn by Miss L beginning Thursday night.  A long weekend in the mountains with the Eakers.  Christmas shopping!  Seeing the new Hunger Gmaes movie with my sisters on Friday.  Picking out our Christmas tree on Saturday!  Christmas parties and other Christmas activities (guess I should finish my Halloween blogging at some point?!).  I could keep going but I'll stop there for now.

Next Doctor Appointment:  Next Tuesday - December 3.  Fingers crossed for continued good blood pressure!

In Honor of the second Hunger Games movie viewing on Firday (can't wait!!!), the movie we've chosen for movie date night in bed is the first Hunger Games movie, so I'm off.  More tomorrow!
