How Far Along: 29 weeks and 1 day

Size of Baby: According to BabyCenter, the baby is the size of a butternut squash, is a little over 15 inches long, and weighs about 2.5 pounds.

Total Weight Gain: Last time I went to the doctor, I had gained about 20 pounds and I did not look when I was at the doctor last week!

Gender: It's a girl!!

Maternity Clothes: Definitely!

Wedding Rings On/Off: On

Stretch Marks: None yet. I'm still using cocoa butter lotion almost every day.

Sleep: Sleep is still good. I'm so thankful for this! I'm definitely feeling a little more tired as the weeks go on, though.

Cravings/Aversions: I have been thinking a lot about carbs again. I bought a baguette at Publix to go with potato soup one night for dinner, and I have pretty much been thinking about it ever since.

Symptoms: Nothing really...hardly any contractions, no ligament pain. I'm really hoping this continues when I go back to work on Friday!

Movement: Oh yes! She is moving so much and I love every little kick and thump. I feel like she's saying "hi" and I'm pretty sure I smile every time she moves.

Mood: Happy!!!

What I Miss: Other than a few silly things like sushi and unlimited caffeine, I'm not missing anything.

Looking Forward To: We're getting maternity pictures taken next weekend! I can't wait!

Best Moment This Week: There were so many fun moments this past week! Daniel and I registered at BuyBuy Baby. Although...that was more overwhelming than fun. I'm sure it will be much easier {and faster!} when we register at Babies-R-Us since we've done it once. My parents came over one day and helped us in the nursery. The room looks completely different and we can't help but just stand in the doorway and stare at it almost every time we walk by. Our favorite moment last week, though, had to be when we got see our little baby's face on our 4D ultrasound. It was so amazing and we've looked at the pictures and watched the videos over and over. We are overwhelmed and so grateful at this beautiful little miracle the Lord has blessed us with.
