Week 29 Bumpdate

Wednesday, June 17, 2015

A preview of one of our maternity photos! 

Week: 29 - She's the size of a hawaiian pineapple!

Total Weight Gain: 17 pounds

Symptoms: Feeling more tired and like getting around is getting much more difficult. I am definitely noticing that my pace isn't what it used to be, but still trying to keep active as much as possible. With the hot weather we've been having I get overheated very easily and have to remind myself to drink water so that I keep my swelling down.

Cravings: Watermelon, ice cream and any fruit!

Sleep: We have been having hot weather lately so getting comfortable at night is getting more tricky! I've got the air conditioning on, plus a fan on in our room and some nights I still can't cool off! I'm looking in to some blackout curtains to see if that will help keep some of the heat out of our room.

Clothes: All maternity all the time, with a couple summer dresses or skirts mixed in here or there. I'm starting to wonder what's really going to fit in the next two months.

Workout: Lots of walks this week! My parents bought me a fit bit so it has been motivating me to get out and get my steps in. Walks after dinner every night and walks with friends on the weekend have really been helping keeping my swelling down and getting my steps and miles in!

Nursery: My dad finished up the hot air balloons this past week and Dan's working on finishing up some wall shelving. Once those things are both done I probably won't do much else till after my shower in a couple weeks.

Movement: Tons, especially as I'm trying to go to bed at night or working during the day!

Best Moment This Week: Getting to see her on the ultrasound this week again! It's amazing how much she's grown and developed in the last 8 weeks! I can't wait to see her in another couple weeks! Hopefully she'll cooperate this time so we can actually get a picture of her face or at least her profile!

Missing: Being able to exercise more easily and not feel so winded all the time!

  1. Beautiful! I feel like your pregnancy has flown!

  2. I LOVE that picture!! So pretty! It's been so hot here as well. I've already started taking my wedding rings off at night due to swelling. It's going to be a long summer!!

  3. I love your photo. It is so pretty.

  4. Gorgeous photo! I loved this time period of being pregnant. I remember I was feeling great and continued to feel good for the next few weeks (at which point everything went really downhill, lol). Enjoy these last couple months!

  5. Love my fitbit for getting my walking in as well! Beautiful picture!

  6. Hey! We are about 2 weeks apart in due dates :) I was 31 weeks on Wednesday! That picture is SO pretty. Happy Friday :)

  7. Libby-

    I craved ice cream and milkshakes like crazy.

    I need your help, can you spread Finn's story for me.

    A 5 month old boy born with a heart condition had open heart surgery in April, he had complications and has been in the hospital ever since. Read more on facebook at Prayers for Finn

    He really is the happiest baby & has won my heart.

    I have put together an instagram auction to help raise money for his medical bills. @prayersforfinnauction #prayersforfinn

    please post a photo of Finn and tag @prayersforfinnauction so that your readers can check it out. It will be June 25

    AMAZING shops have come together in donations and now as bloggers its our responsibility to spread his awareness.

    Thank you so much
