29 WEEKS

HOW AM I FEELING: I'm still not feeling too bad but I am starting to experience a few of the third trimester discomforts. I'm still working full time so finding my back is getting quite sore by the end of the day and also have a tendency to wake up about 3am and then having trouble getting into a comfortable position to go back to sleep. Last night I was sitting on the couch and had some tightening pains again which I am guessing are braxton hicks. I don't know what happened to them being painless!

WEIGHT GAIN: I now weigh 68.2kg which is approx 8kg weight gain all up and 1kg in the last fortnight.

CRAVINGS/AVERSIONS: All things sweet! My taste buds have really started to change and I just crave sweet foods which isn't good for the waistline and is the total opposite to me as I am normally a savoury person. Croissants with raspberry jam, apricot pies, chocolate brownies . . . mmmm! Yum!

MOVEMENT: He seems to have dropped right down and I half expect an arm to make it's way out the way he's going! It's starting to feel like he's trying to escape and while I love feeling him move it is getting mighty uncomfortable as I constantly feel like I need to go to the toilet and at times feel like I'm going to leak with the pressure he is putting on my bladder! The movements are incredibly low down now, it's quite a weird sensation. 

OTHER UPDATES: The nursery is nearly painted! It's all been plastered up and the first coat of paint is on the walls and ceiling. The room will be painted in time to be moving the furniture in over Easter so the HG is going to have fun putting everything together. I think I will leave the house and hide while this is going on, patience is not one of his virtues! Poor guy has to put together the cot, bassinet, change table and toy box as all those items came flat packed in boxes. I then get to start the fun part - decorating!

UPCOMING MILESTONES: I should get my results for my glucose test and a myriad of other tests they did so fingers crossed those all come back normal, We are also up to fortnightly midwife visits which is exciting, time is closing in on us and this little man will be here in no time! Can't believe it's nearly May already!

  1. Sounds like everything is coming together. I think that you are a very creative person and will do the nursery up just so beautifully. Can't wait to see it!

  2. All is going smoothly.. Very nice!! Spent sat with a friend who is 34wks and has gestational diabetes, all she was worried about was no Easter eggs!! Are you waddling yet? My son engaged at 32wks, and my Ob told me to have my bag packed, but he never came out till 41wks..! Hope your little boy doesn't make you wait!

  3. Hope all goes well with your tests. Sounds like the nursery is coming along. I got a little nervous for you after the post about how he was tearing the room apart.

  4. Great to hear the renos are coming along and I can relate to hubby not having patience with putting things together my DH is same and sometimes I just have to laugh as he gets so stressed...
    Sorry to hear about the braxton hicks and your weight gain has excellent figures!

  7. Thanks for support on my blog. When we are so used to being social it's So quiet when we are alone. When you start classes try and continue those friendships, and def join a mothers group through you local clinic. They will all be in the same situation as you...

  8. Happy 29 weeks! Glad to hear the GD test came back all good-now you can keep snacking on the sweet stuff woohoo! I think going out for the day could be a very good idea while HG puts the nursery stuff together, I've been at home when DH tried to put a desk together and it wasn't pretty-sitting there surrounded by random pieces of wood. And I did laugh quite hard at him poor darling! But yay for decorating-can't wait to see pictures!

  9. Happy 29 weeks!! What is it about May that makes it suddenly seem like baby arrival is soooo close?? I have been feeling the same thing and have been freaking out over the past couple of days about the bazillion things I feel like are still undone!! Eeek!
