Bumpdate {29 weeks}

I am actually on time with posting this because Kathryn needs my chalkboard for Baby Ferg's shower on Sunday! Yay!!!

Please excuse the worst chalkboard design of all's getting hard to write on with this big bump in the way!

Size of baby: An acorn squash…she already weighs between 2.5-3.8 pounds! I feel like that’s so big!
Weight gain: Still holding strong at 143. (+23 pounds)      
Maternity clothes: Obvi. And my regular pants officially don’t fit. I have no clue how people can wear a belly band for their entire pregnancy.  
Gender: A GIRL! 
Movement: Yes she still moving around lots in there. Her favorite times are in the mornings, off and on between 7:30-10:00 and then at night between 9:00-11:00. She was going crazy the night Michigan State played Kentucky in basketball! Go Spartans! :)
Cravings: I am just waiting for the day when I absolutely have to have something and I send Travis out at midnight for it…unfortunately, I’m still craving the same old stuff. 
Symptoms: Still a little heartburn and Braxton Hicks contractions…but the big ones this week have been fatigue and (dare I say it?) morning sickness. NOOOOO!!! I had to take zofran last weekend and there have been a few times this past week where I had to stop and sit or lie down. I really hope it’s not coming back for good!! 
Workouts: Well I’m done running, but I am trying to walk 4 miles most days of the week! I did 18 miles this week…4 every day after school, except Thursday, I only did 2 miles because I got nauseous (see above—boo!). 
Sleep: Pretty good but it definitely takes me a while to get comfy! 
What I miss: Not being nauseous/worrying about if something I do will make me nauseous. 
Best moment this week: This is completely un-baby related, but I got observed this week and it went really well! My principal gave me great feedback today at my post-observation conference. I’m so glad it’s over…I hate getting observed! Teachers out there, I know you feel my pain. 
Looking forward to: Still looking forward to my baby shower Sunday! I know my girl Kathryn has some amazing things up her sleeve and I can’t wait to see my friends and family!
