Weekly Update: Week 29

{  Tyler said my hair looks like a who-dunnit! Ha ha!  }
{  Also, it's a goal to start taking these with an actual camera instead of our phones so they're not so blurry!  }

How far along? 29 weeks.

How much weight have you gained? 22 pounds

Any cravings? Yes! I was all about the cottage cheese I got at the end of last week. Have you ever eaten strawberries and cottage cheese together? Yum! But that's not all... I've also been craving ICE. It was hot in the office on Friday and I would have killed for some ice, and ever since then I've been munching on it. We've gone out to eat a few times and I've made Tyler sit there and wait after our meal while I finish off the ice in my glass. (It's better than homemade ice!)  We went out for salad for lunch yesterday, but detoured to a steak place instead. Then tonight I read something online about a fried peanut butter and banana sandwich "Elvis Style" which mean is has marshmallow cream on it! It sounded sooo good, but we don't have marshmallow cream or bananas, so instead I made a friend peanut butter and jelly sandwich with cream cheese on it. Yeah, I guess I've had a few cravings.

What are you wearing? Still getting use out of some of my old tops that are getting shorter and shorter on me...

How are you feeling? Symptoms? Feeling good! Starting to get worn out a little easier, and my feet aren't happy if I'm on them for too long, but I think that's pretty good for where I'm at! I was able to bake ALL day yesterday though! One of my other symptoms, I guess, is pregnancy brain. Last weekend Becky and I made cookies and I forgot to add the sugar... yesterday, out of nine different kinds, I think I only forgot the vanilla in one recipe, but still, I am rather forgetful as of late. And then there was a double whammy symptom incident which I will save for the worst moment of the week...

Stretch marks? Nope.

Belly button in or out? Still in between. If I'm laying on my back it's definitely still in, If i'm sitting up and I press my finger next to it, it pops out! Ba ha ha! It's weird!

Sleep? Waking up to pee some, but mostly sleeping well still. 

Best moment this week: Crib is put together, nursery has a first coat of paint, and curtain material has been ordered!

Worst moment this week: I woke up in the middle of the night one night with charlie horses forming in both legs (a common pregnancy symptom around this time). I rolled over to pull on my feet for some relief and immediately felt a bloody nose begin. Ugh! Talk about rude awakening. I had to wake up poor Tyler too to get me  a tissue since my leg cramps were immobilizing me. 

Miss anything? I miss the days when time didn't seem to fly by so fast!! As of Wednesday we'll  only be ten weeks away from baby (give or take)! 

Movement? Lots of body parts sticking out in weird places. She kept sticking something out by my rib cage the other day. I think she's doing yoga in there like her mama. 

Excited for anything? Christmas! Tomorrow is my last day of work until break, and then the festivities will begin! I have sooo much to do on my time off, so I don't think it's going to be super relaxing, but hopefully I'll get a lot accomplished!

How’s dad-to-be? His back is muuuuch better and he's been getting around fine. He's out Christmas shopping right now. He was in a good mood when he left, but judging by the length of this shopping trip, I don't think he'll be as happy when he gets back home. :)

Edit: Tyler came home and brought marshmallow cream and bananas! Best husband!
