29 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights

How far along? 29 weeks

Baby Size: She's the size of a butternut squash. In everyday terms, she is right around 15 1/4 inches and weighs about 2.5 pounds.

Total weight gain: Somewhere around 18 pounds. I started back at the gym this past week and have been eating much healthier snacks and drinking more water. Thanks to that, I was able to maintain my weight for the week (:

Maternity clothes? Still wearing my pre-maternity dresses and shirts and mixing it up with pre-maternity and maternity pants. 

Stretch marks? Not so far. I've been lathering on the Vaseline Cocoa butter every time I get out of the shower.

Sleep:  I'm still sleeping pretty well. I wake up occasionally during the night if I'm in an uncomfortable position but after getting comfortable again, I fall right back to sleep. 

Best moment this week:  Two things this week! One, scheduling our maternity picture session! Yay for photos of the baby bump. Two, getting the house cleaned! Saturday and Sunday, I woke up EARLY in the morning. By early, I mean 5:25! Since I couldn't go back to sleep, I decided to do some cleaning. By cleaning I mean I vacuumed; dusted; mopped; cleaned the bathrooms; did all laundry; washed dishes; cleaned out our freezer, fridge, and pantry; took out the drawers and shelves of the fridge and washed and wiped them down; and did some organizing. Our house hasn't been this spotless since before we moved in and I'm loving it! Let's hope I have the energy to keep it all nice and neat over the next couple of months! 

Miss Anything? Not that I can think of!

Movement: We have quite the wiggle worm on our hands these days. She moves morning, noon, and night. I woke up the other night to Kevin laughing. As I had slept, he had been watching Harper move all around in my belly! It's funny to think that she can move all around and I'm so out of it that I don't even realize. 

Food cravings: Honeycrisp apples (the best apples ever!) with a side of peanut butter

Anything making you queasy or sick: No. 

Gender: Girl {Our little Harper doodle!}

Labor Signs:  No

Symptoms: It seems that this week I have been bombarded with pregnancy symptoms! The acid reflux has been flaring up in full force. I've got a doctor's appointment today and you best believe I'll be asking for something stronger than TUMS. I probably eat 5 tums a day and they only provide some minor and temporary relief. Over the last couple of days, I've also noticed my feet swelling at the end of the day. I've also been waking up in the middle of the night from cramps in my calves. Those bad boys are no joke! But on a positive note, I'm in full nesting mode and I'd definitely say it's a side effect of pregnancy but I'm loving it!

Belly Button in or out? In but it's getting very small!

Wedding rings on or off?  On

Mood:  Happy and Excited!

Looking forward to: Going to check on Harper today and getting Harper's closet cleaned out this week. My dad is coming over Thursday to install another shelf in Harper's closet. Then I can begin to organize all of clothes (: 


  1. I totally sympathize with all your symptoms friend! I've got my 28 week appt on Thursday and I'm definitely going to talk to with the doctor about the reflux. Bleh...it's an all day occurrence. Good for you for working out! I really need to start getting some exercise because I've noticed some swelling towards the end of the day too. Your bump is so cute!

    1. My doctor put me on Zantac 150. It has done wonders and you can purchase it over the counter! (: I hope you're appointment goes well today!
