Happy 29 weeks to me! I'm now in week 30 and out of the twenties...ahh! It's time to get ready!
How far along? 29 weeks 1 day
Total weight gain/measurements: 25lbs!
Maternity clothes: All the items in this outfit are maternity except for the tank top which you can't really see anyway. It's just a basic black one from Heatons which was always quite big/long on me so it stretches out nicely! The jeans are ASOS Maternity as is the cardigan (even though technically I don't think cardigans are ever really maternity!). I actually ordered more items as I'm running out of clothes that fit and I'm getting bored of wearing the same 5 outfits over & over again!
Stretch marks? Still no new ones. I'm still using ESPA Nourishing Body Oil but have been mixing it in with their Smooth and Firm Body Butter as well. These products are AMAZING!
Sleep: I can't complain, although I have started sleeping with a pillow between my legs for comfort.
Best moment this week: It seems so long ago now but my trip to the spa last week was wonderful! I got a prenatal massage & pedicure and it was so worth it.
Miss anything? Same as last week - not having to worry about whether something I eat is going to give me heartburn or not!
Food cravings: Cucumber & feta cheese (together). So weird!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Yes, but I can never put my finger on it. My stomach is just very sensitive this pregnancy.
Labour signs: Nope!
Symptoms: This week I had a lot of abdominal cramps which my doctor has told me are nothing to worry about, in fact he said it's probably Braxton Hicks contractions. I had been noticing that they were coming in waves, however they were not regular enough to be real contractions! I still get heartburn especially right in the middle of the day around after I have lunch but thankfully it's not as bad as it was before (keeping me up at night and all that!). When my doctor took my blood pressure at my appointment this week he asked me whether I was feeling faint or light-headed as it was very low. Again, not anything to worry about but just something to be aware of. This has been pretty normal for me throughout my whole pregnancy though!
Belly button in or out? Out :)
Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or moody most of the time? I am normally very happy but I definitely cry...a lot! Last night we were watching Episodes and I started crying when Matt LeBlanc's character was being told he needed to get help...FYI this is a funny show, not a tearjerker at all. And Matt LeBlanc is hilarious at playing himself...so think about how I react when watching REALLY sad bits in movies like About Time. I almost needed counselling after seeing that film!!
Looking forward to: My next doctor's appointment/ultrasound when I get to see the baby. I still can't believe it's a boy!
