29 weeks {babybrink#2}

I wish I was one of those pregnant girls that looks glamorous in a maxi dress, but I just feel larger than life when I wear them, ha!
Size of baby: a butternut squash. The average baby at 29 weeks is a tad over 15 inches from head to toe- that is crazy! He's almost full grown length wise!

Movement: baby boy is all over the place, literally! I feel simultaneous movement on all areas of my abdomen. He's gotten so big! And he's officially discovered my ribs. I now feel him in my ribs every day (and it will only go downhill from here, HA!)

Cravings: roast beef and mashed potatoes. Ice cream, oh my gosh the ice cream craving is out of this world! Gimme all the shakes!

Miss anything: I'm starting to miss being able to bend over comfortably (or at all, ha!) especially now that he is all the way up in my ribs! Sometimes I forget that I'm pregnant and get quite the shock when I can't move like I normally can, ha ha!

Random: oh this is the weirdest thing... I actually liked my glucose test drink this time around! I had the same orange flavored drink with Mia and while it reminded me of flat soda, I definitely didn't love it because I don't even like orange soda. The fake orange flavor just doesn't do it for me. This time around I must have been so hungry/thirsty, or just in pregnant crazy land because it totally hit the spot, ha ha! WEIRD!

Best moment of the week: walking into Mia's room Saturday morning and the first thing she said to me was, "baby brudder's in ma belly! Feel it, mom!" She has been trying to figure out how to get her belly to grow like mine and finally discovered stuffing her taggie in her shirt, ha ha. It was the cutest thing and she was so proud of her "bump"!

You are soooo adorable! I also have a hard time believing your baby is that big when you are that small! He is going to be a peanut!

The rib kicking is such a trip! I didn't have the kicks with Marcus (he was breech), but this time around, oh my gosh! The kicks are no joke. They've gotten so strong I will let out an "oh!" or "ouch!" Ha! And, don't you just love to see your belly bouncing all over when the baby really gets to moving? It's the best!
You're looking so great!!

Whitney @ Work it Mommy said...

You look amazing! But I agree with you, I felt huge wearing maxi dresses while pregnant. Maxi skirts are the ticket ;)

LovR how sweet Mia is with "feeling baby" in her belly. My heart would swell so big when Lily would walk around sticking her belly out. Kind of mocking me really. Ha! Also always felt larger in maxi dresses too! You're lookin fab mama!

The glucose test drink hit the spot for you this time?! That's too funny! Ha, ha!

Ummm...you DO look glamorous in that maxi dress. I can't say I've ever heard someone say that their glucose test drink hit the spot, but that cracks me up! Also, Mia melts my heart as always. So smart and precious!

Girl you look SO cute in that dress! In fact, I love the dress and would totally wear it myself, now, not pregnant. I love what you did with the shirt under since it's spaghetti straps too. I always want to do that but can't figure out how to make it look cute but you totally did!

Tawnya Faust said...

I happen to think you look gorgeous in that maxi dress, we're always our own worst critics! Glad to hear everything is still going well, I've kind of been disconnected the past coulpe of weeks! Isn't it the best when the big sisters start getting involved and excited about their baby brothers? scarlett is even calling her baby brother by his name and it MELTS me!

Christy said...

You look amazing! But I feel you... I feel the exact same way about maxi dresses...pregnant or not!

Evelina said...

Mashed potatoes and ice cream. Yes! I am all over that.
