How far along: 29 weeks - EDD 09/10/15
How big is baby: The size of an acorn squash - She is growing fat deposits under her skin, and her energy is surging because of it. She is starting to get a little cramped in there as she continues to grow.
What are we having: A sweet baby girl
Symptoms this week: My acid reflux is out of control, to the point where I'll need to ask my doctor about it at my appointment. No matter what I eat, do, or try, it's there. I feel like I'm burning from the inside. Hopefully my doctor has a solution other than Tums, because those have stopped helping.
Weight gain/loss: Still on track for my 1 pound gain per week, for a total of 13 pounds.
Food aversions/cravings: Fish. Any kind, it doesn't matter. I won't cook it at home, since J isn't a fan, but if we go out I can pretty much guarantee that part (if not all) of my meal will be fish of some sort.
The baby belly: I feel huge. Almost abnormally so. Strangers keep saying to me, "You must be ready to pop!" and then look shocked when I say I still have 11 weeks to go. I'm definitely all belly, but it makes me wonder how much larger it's going to get,
Movement: I think baby girl has been having a growth spurt. She's still active, but has had more quiet time recently. I've found that after quieter days, she'll have super active days, but that hasn't really been the case this week. I know she's fine, I think she's just busy growing.
What is freaking me out: Thinking about just how close we are to having an actual baby to care for. Obviously, I'm aware that pregnancy results in a newborn, but it's scary to think about sometimes!
What I'm totally loving: How wonderful my shower turned out. Everyone went above and beyond, and I'm just so grateful to have such fantastic people in our, and the baby's, life.
What I'm looking forward to: J and I took the week off before the 4th of July to finish up baby projects, spend time with my mom for the first half of the week, and then just spend time together... since it'll be our last days off as just the two of us for a while.
