pregnancy #2 - week 29

Merry Christmas Eve!  this post is coming to you quickly ... I have some cooking to finish up and Mason and Ryan are hanging out with some neighbors momentarily.

on Friday I went to the doctor's for a check up and everything looks great with baby.  I've been getting a lot of disagreeing opinions from the doctors at the practice on how I should deliver (based on my previous 4th degree tear) and am leaning towards a C-section. 

weight - 125 pounds

Next appointment is on January 12th so I'll have an update during the 32 week post.

 Gap body maternity tank, extra small/Paige brand jeans size 24

I'm so thankful I found another pair of my jeans that still fit ... these are slightly stretchy Paige denim, but are unfortunately cropped so I have to wear them with tall boots. 

Nothing really new ... still experiencing major lower back pain and have yet to find an acupuncturist.  Flight has been booked to visit Katie in Orlando in 2 weeks.  That will obviously be my last trip/flight until after Baby's arrival.

Your baby's the size of an acorn squash!
Baby already measures about 15.2 to 16.7 inches long. Right now, we weighs about 2.5 to 3.8 pounds
pregnancy symptoms at 29 weeks
  • Lots of kicks! (All that crowding.)   - YES
  • Headaches and/or lightheadedness, possibly due to difficulty sleeping, but it could be from low blood sugar too, so make sure you're eating at regular intervals. - NOT TOO BAD
  • Itchy belly. Your skin is stretching thinner, making it more sensitive. - OH YEAH
  • Back, leg or pelvic pain. - SO MUCH BACK PAIN
  • Hemorrhoids. Baby's putting pressure on your digestive system, and hormones may be relaxing your intestinal muscles. Eat plenty of fiber. - NOPE
  • Constipation. This isn't really helping the hemorrhoid situation, is it? - NOPE
  • Trouble sleeping -- still! - YEP!
  • Gotta pee -- again! The more your uterus expands, the more you'll probably have to hit the restroom. - ALL THE TIME
  • Varicose veins. Don't worry! These should fade after delivery. - HAVEN'T SEEN ANY YET

Happy holidays everyone!
