HDBD, sort of

How Far Along: 29w

Total Weight Gain: According to my first appointment, I'm up a total of 13 pounds. Yay!

Maternity Clothes: Yep, but I can still fit into some of my non-mat t-shirts

Sleep: I finally broke down and bought some Tums. Of course, I haven't had a need of them since buying them, but that's good too.

Cravings or Aversions: McDonald's chicken nugget meals. Yep, has to be the whole meal, with a coke and dipping sauce. So much for that great weight gain amount.

Best Moment This Week: Feeling feet pushing around. 

Movement: Constant and crazy. Another non-sleeper I'm sure

Gender: Girl.

Labor Signs: nope, but I had some BH for the first time.

Belly Button in or out: Still in, sort of

What I miss: Not getting punched in the crotch repeatedly

What I'm Looking Forward to: Breast feeding class next week. Should be interesting. Still not sure about it though

Weekly Wisdom: Family means well (repeat until believed)

Milestones: No more than 12 weeks left

What the baby is up to:
You’re probably already getting a little preview of baby’s personality, the more your feel him move. You might get some playful kicks and jabs, and start to feel little hiccups, too! At 29 weeks, he’s not just moving a lot, he’s also plumping up. And as he continues to put pressure on your digestive system, you’re going to feel the effects: hemorrhoids, heartburn, pelvic pain and frequent urination are all common at this stage in the game. Week 29 is a good time to start finalizing stuff, like stocking the nursery with baby care essentials and checking out a few potential day cares. You’ll also want to start packing a few things you know you’ll want with you at the hospital at baby’s birth. Leave it by the door, so you can add stuff you think of along the way -- and so you can grab it at a moment’s notice.

I really need to get going on getting things ready for this little one. I just can't seem to get in any rush to do anything. I have no idea what to bring to the hospital, we don't have sleepers for winter, and we haven't even figured out the room for sleeping situations with AJ. I feel bad since I was so super excited at this stage with AJ, having my shower around now, registering, etc. This time, eh, whatever. Poor girl.
