29 Weeks


Total Weight Gain/Loss: 11 pounds so far

Maternity Clothes: oh yes

Gender: it’s a girl! Lucy Anne

Movement: yes lot of flipping and swift kicks to the bladder, Liam and Lucy had this first sibling fight while Liam was laying on me the other day and elbowing her and she would kick him in the back…over and over again

Sleep: oooh sleep or should i say lack there of….i miss sleep! I remember saying this to my co-workers when I was pregnant with Liam and they thought i was the most naive first time expectant Mom but i was so right…i sleep ten times better with a newborn than i do pregnant! At least with a newborn I am up doing something productive with a goal of getting them back to sleep and then when I do go to sleep I am out like a light until the next feeding where as while pregnant I am up, uncomfortable, just staring thinking about how terrible tomorrow is going to be because i will be exhausted, then when I do sleep it is just restless tossing and turning.

What I miss: sleep and physically feeling good…the back, hips, and legs are starting to get really sore.

Cravings: still cereal…two boxes of Cocoa Puffs last week

Best Moment this week: I had my 7 week follow up with my high risk doctor a week and a half ago and everything went great! The cysts have gone away and Lucy is growing right on track despite the 2 vessel cord. I have one more check up with them in four weeks and then may or may not have to go back depending on how well she is growing.

So glad to see posts from you and to read that things are going well. Wish you could post more often, but I'm sure you have very free moments to yourself. Here's hoping you get some sleep.
