29 Weeks!

I'm 29 Weeks Pregnant!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: Baby is the size of a head of califlower!  And weighs about 3 lbs.
Total Weight Gain: Gained 24 lbs! 

Belly Growth: 12 inches.

Maternity Clothes: Oh yes!!
Gender: It's a boy!  Jaxson Jeffrey Ellis

Movement: Constant!  He is starting to hurt me sometimes!

Sleep: My Mom got me this boppy pillow, and I would have paid about oh, a million dollars for it.  It takes so much pressure off of my hips and my legs, and helps me sleep longer throughout the night.  It's amazing.  Every pregnant woman needs one.  But, I am getting up at least twice during the night to potty.

Symptoms: I feel huge.  Like, really huge.  It is hard for me to stand for long periods of time without my back and feet hurting.  My doctor says I am anemic, and that I may be developing a hernia.  I have a lot of painful pelvic swelling on my right side. 

Cravings: I really want cheetos.  Like really.  Tonight I went for the bag in the pantry, and discovered that Hubby ATE.THEM.ALL.  That is not very nice.

Emotions: Good this week.  I'm ready to not be pregnant anymore.  We went on our hospital tour, and that was a little scary.  The only time I've ever spent in the hospital was when my Nana was dying.  So, I think I associate that experience with hospital rooms.  It made me very anxious.  I don't really want to go there.
Best Moment of the Week: I'm starting to feel ready for Jaxson to be here!!

I hope you are all having a wonderful week!
