29 weeker

How Far Along? 29 weeks

Maternity Clothes? Some. Some regular stretchy stuff.

Stretch Marks? No. Still hoping to avoid those! But I have a random spider vein on my thigh now. Hate it.

Sleep? No eating before bed seems to help the heartburn. Lots of tossing and turning (which is a challenge with this belly) but not waking up more than once to pee!

Best Moment of the Week? Lots of goodies this week! Nursery painting has begun! Registering! OB appt and ultrasound where I saw that our little GIRL (100% girl confirmed) was doing perfectly! Confirmationg that I passed the Glucose test...however I am anemic and need to take iron (still wondering why I had to ASK about this and no one bothered to call or was planning on telling me!). And non-pregnancy related...getting 93% on my first assignment for my masters degree in math!

Movement? Crazy awesome movement! Feeling/seeing the baby move is definitely the best/coolest part of being pregnant! Definitely felling little arms/elbows/feet...feels like random hard bulges in my tummy!

Food Cravings? Lovin' that the halloween candy is out already! Oh Henry!

Gender? Got 100% confirmation that its a girl!

What I miss? Not much right now!

What I'm looking forward to? Finishing the nursery decorating! And hitting the 30 week mark in 6 days!

Weekly Wisdom: Being sick when you are pregnant is WAY worse than just being sick. I have had a cold for the past few days and it has made sleeping hard, and being awake painful! I'm feeling really run down and totally crappy. I haven't been to the gym in a week and I hate when I get off schedule like that b/c I always find it soooo hard to get back on track again. Oh well...I am trying to rest and not push myself in hopes this cold will clear up soon!

Milestones: Registry is pretty big. And I think we have names....Either Alyssa (nickname/short form Aly) or Alexandra (nickname/short form Ali)...clearly I really like the name Ali! Preferences? Alyssa or Alexandra? Oh...and Samantha is on the list too (but after those two!)

Emotions: Just tired and sickish. Starting to feel anxious about having a little one depend on me...FOREVER! eek!

Well, I'm off to my favorite spot these days....the couch. Gotta watch the Dexter episode I missed on Sunday!



  1. Congrats on passing the glucose test! Iknow it was a HUGE relief when I passed! Sorry about the cold- I hope it goes away soon!

    I LOVE all three names :)

  2. Hooray on passing the glucose test!

    I like Alexandra :-) Wow...almost 30 weeks. Amazing.

  3. It sounds like you had a great week with registering, confirming you are having a girl and passing the glucose test - and doing well on your math assignment! I am sorry though to hear about your cold! I hope that you feel better soon!

    I too am on iron supplements and recommend eating a lot of fiber to help with the side effects! If you like cereal, I have found that Fiber One Mini Wheats are yummy & help a lot. This was suggested to me and I am very thankful!!

  4. Beautiful names! I cannot wait to hear which one you go with!

  5. Congrats on registering!! I'm excited to do that as well, I've been keeping myself busy by researching items to find out which is "best".

  6. Almost 30 weeks, WOW!! You def. need to post pics of your nursery as soon as its done, can't wait to see your little girls room! LOVE both those names, can't go wrong with either!! And how amazing is Dexter, one of my FAVES!!!

  7. Whoo hoo! 29 weeks!!! And, as someone with that very nickname, I definitely approve of the name choices :)Although my name is not Alyssa or Alexandra - love them both, though!

  8. Love those names! Congratulations on hitting 29 weeks. I can't wait to hear which name you decide on. And definitely post pictures of the nursery when you're done. :)

  9. you're in the home stretch!!!! sooo exciting. post pics of your nursery once it comes along more :o)

  10. Love the names! I think Alexandra is my favorite. Can't wait to hear which one you pick!
