Twenty-nine weeks? Seriously? How did that happen? Last I checked I was still safely in the 2nd trimester!
How am I feeling? Besides the sickness, pretty good. Acid is still flaring up sometimes for reasons I can't determine (like this morning...). I'm getting to the point where I'm pretty sore when I wake up in the morning, even when I use my pillow that goes between my knees. I'm finding that my hips are sore from laying on them all night. My limbs are still going numb regularly, which is disconcerting, but not troubling (it usually means I've been laying on them too long).
As far as new developments, my belly button is doing the crazy thing where it stretches out horizontally. It's getting really shallow and very wide. It never popped out with Baby Girl, so I'm hoping it won't this time either. I also noticed recently that my stretch marks from last time are extending (as I told The Hubby, my stretch marks are getting stretch marks). I'm not too worried about it, surprisingly. The one change that has been bothersome to me, though, is that I have a freckle. This sounds weird, but I have NEVER had freckles in my life and I found one on the right side of my nose on my cheek. I know people talk about lots of skin changes that can happen in pregnancy, but I didn't have anything like this last time. Weird.
Weight thoughts: I'm aiming for 3 pounds or less for the gain between last appointment and the one next Wednesday. Not sure if I'll make it. I'm just not eating that much but still seem to keep gaining. I've given myself license to eat a few more treats, but my portion sizes have honestly been pretty small.
Doctor appointments? Nothing until 2/22.
Movement? Yep--Baby Boy is definitely still scooting around in there. I've noticed that he LOVES peanut butter. Baby Girl actually asked me if Boomer was kicking me and I told her "Yep! He loves peanut butter." Her response: "He's doing a peanut butter dance". Adorable.
I can't really tell what his position is now. I think it's probably the same, but today I've been feeling more movement straight up from my belly button and even a bit in my upper left quadrant (previously most had been in my upper right quadrant), so it's possible that he's turned some. I've actually been feeling movement almost everywhere today, so who knows. My doctor is good about being able to feel, so she'll probably be able to tell me next week.
Baby preparation? With all the sickness, we've just been trying to keep our heads above water and not end up in the hospital. So no, no more prep has been done :)
