29 Weeks

29 Weeks: Baby O2 is the weight of a butternut squash  
Our little one weighs 2.5 pounds and is a tad over 15 inches long head to toe.  This week the lungs and muscles are continuing to mature and his/her head is growing bigger for the developing brain.

How far along? 29 Weeks
Total weight gain? Not sure- I need to check.
Maternity clothes? Only in maternity pants.
Stretch marks? Nothing yet...
Sleep? Sleeping so good, hope it lasts!
Best moment this week? Having last Monday and Tuesday off with Cole.  That boy is so much fun!  He got to go to another doctor appointment for the baby and loved hearing the heartbeat.  Everytime he's gone and has heard the heartbeat he has grinned ear to ear like he knows what he's hearing.  Melt my heart :) We also had today off together since our daycare shut down with her own sick child.  I don't mind one bit when it means extra time with my boy!
Miss anything? Nope..
Movement? My favorite part of all this- he/she moves all the time!
Food cravings? Had to make homemade Chex Mix this weekend.  It sounded so good and the 3 of us polished it off in 3 days.  Cole was a big big fan just like his parents.
Anything making you queasy/sick? Nothing
Gender? Well, the heartbeat at the appointment last week was 130.  Hmmm... old wives tales would say boy...
Labor Signs? Had our first Braxton Hicks contraction last week at around 9 o'clock at night.  Both of us had forgotten what those were like.  Hope the real ones hold off for 11 more weeks until baby is done cooking!
Symptoms? Minor heartburn and that's it.  I'm sooo happy to report that the rib pain has really decreased compared to what it was like a month ago.  At this point with Cole I had insane heartburn and awful back pain.  Crazy how the heartburn is manageable and I've had no back pain whatsoever.  
Belly button in or out? More flat than out this week. 
Wedding rings on or off? On 
Happy or moody? Happy happy happy!  With Cole, 29 weeks was when I had my first and only crazy preggo lady meltdown.  Could this be on the horizon with this one?!  I haven't had one yet... look out Trent ;) 
Looking forward to? Working on the nursery and starting my holiday decorating!  We're also VERY excited that Trent has 10 days off for Thanksgiving break!
Daddy moment?  Trent kept the ball rolling on the nursery this week and it now has all new doors, beautiful white trim, and he began the wood accent wall.  Crazy connection according to my perpetual calendar- 2 years to the day, Trent began working on accent walls in both nurseries.  My calendar said that In Cole's nursery he began painting the accent wall stripes and exactly two years later he started hanging the wood in Baby O2's nursery.  Crazy how that worked out!  I hope these babies realize all the things their daddy does for them!!
Big Brother Cole moment: The new words keep coming out and daily Trent and I will look at each other like, "Woah, where did that come from?!" This week he also proved he's definitely our son by picking up on his own without being told.  On several different occasions, he has helped pick up all the kitchen stuff he drug out... AND he put them back in exactly the correct drawers/cabinets without help.  On Saturday he had drug out a ton of toys from his basket and then suddenly decided he was going to pick everything up until it was all back in his basket.  Seeing these habits makes his OCD parents very happy!  But then again... he still likes to take every book off his shelf in one giant pile and drag shoes all over the house.  Another funny moment was when he put himself in timeout in the corner. Sadly, this is something he's been visiting quite frequently due to his hitting.
