29 Week Bumpdate AND some exciting news!

I got a little bored over the weekend and decided to put this together. Basically, it’s the second trimester progression!
Crazy, huh?!
Now onto this week’s bumpdate!
How far along: 29 weeks 
Size of baby: Small cabbage
Baby’s size and weight: 17 in, 2.9 lbs
My total weight gain: 34 pounds; I seem to be gaining a pound a week now! So maybe my body needed all the extra weight and is finally slowing down…
Baby’s development: 
-Getting close to birth length but still needs to gain weight.
-Baby will double or triple in weight over next 11 weeks
-Less likely to feel big kicks and more elbow jabs as birth gets closer 🙂 🙂 🙂 
Stretch marks: None.
Maternity clothes: Yes. Cardigans, leggings, and stretchy tanks are my best friends. 

Gender: Girl.
Movement: Yes. 

Sleep: Tossing and turning but still taking Unisom to sleep through the night. 
What I miss: Zach, my own home, and being thin. 

Food cravings: Trick-or-treat candy has been the death of me this week…bad, I know. 
Symptoms: tired and large but other than that, not bad. Minus my ankle mishap which thankfully only seemed to be a bad roll and is almost healed already!
Nolan is: saying more and more each week. Baby boy will be two in two months.. sigh. It goes too fast. 
Zach is: COMING HOME FOR THANKSGIVING! He found out yesterday and I could not be more thrilled to see him for the weekend! We didn’t think we would say each other until Christmas so this was SUCH a fabulous surprise 🙂 🙂

What I’m looking forward to: Zach coming home in less than 4 weeks and then for GOOD less than 3 weeks after that!! I’m finally starting to see an end to this madness! 
Best moments: Nolan and daddy FaceTiming and playing trucks; melts my heart. And these adorable Joules rain boots Nolan and I received… EEK I HOPE it rains soon 🙂

Funny things: Apparently me at lunch. I don’t even know what I was doing but he was cracking up the entire time. Glad someone finds me humorous 😉

Not so funny things: Hurting my ankle but hey, I’m just thankful it’s not broken!
