The Weekly Run-Down: 29

How Far Along: 29 weeks - last week of the 20's, yay!

Size of baby: This week the websites are torn between an acorn squash or a butternut squash. I've never heard of an acorn squash before, but we have butternut pumpkin over here.. yummo!

Random & Interesting Developmental Stuff:  Here's this week's run-down:

Your baby is getting stronger by the minute. This week, her pushes, kicks, and rolls will likely occur more frequently -- and forcefully. So don't be surprised if you feel an extra-strong karate chop or two! Around this time, the part of your baby's brain associated with intelligence and personality becomes far more complex. You can get to know your baby by paying attention to how she reacts to different foods, sounds, and lights.

Total Weight Gain: About the same as last week, give or take a few grams.
Sleep: I have had some GREAT sleep this week... and also some shocking sleep. {I'm looking at you, Oscar.}

Symptoms: Some tummy pains in the form of stretching and tightening. More rib burning & back aching. And the most ridiculous bladder craziness - seriously, I always thought the whole pregnant lady peeing thing was put on, but this is NOT fun. I need to pee ALL THE TIME. And when I do get to a loo, I can't pee. There is nothing there. I miss the satisfaction of a good, rewarding bathroom break. Man, I'm so gross.

Cravings: This week I've made myself no less than three cups of tea, because I really felt like I wanted one - only to drink a sip and be completely disinterested. Not sure what's up with that weird craving.

Gender: Girl, Girl, Girl!

Movement: Not as frequent, but definitely stronger when they happen. Tonight I was getting some really cool slow-motion movements - they didn't feel like kicks. Shoves or stretches, maybe? Loved them!

Maternity Clothes: Dresses, again. :) 

Milestones: Passing my second Glucose Tolerance Test - so happy and relieved about this.
What I'm looking forward to: My next OB visit is on Friday at 29+4. Any big questions I should ask? Oh, and our first hospital class is on Wednesday night & I'm hoping hubby & I learn a stack from it. We'll see.

The belly: Back out in front this week - ah, the ever changing belly shape! I wore this dress for my 19-week shot too, and it's been funny to look at the two side-by-side and compare. Hello, boobs!
