I am 29 weeks today! I really cannot believe that we are going to meet our SON in 11 weeks or so! That is really crazy. This week, he should be about 3 pounds and 17 inches long! This week will be a pretty short update…
I can definitely tell he is getting bigger by the day with all of his kung fu movements in my belly. Jerry and I love when we get a big kick or movement. I lay on my back every night and every morning just to get him moving.
I definitely had a really rough week last week. So funny, I turned 3rd trimester on Tuesday, and that is exactly when I started feeling awful. I just felt so tired, out of breath, and sore, particularly in my back. When I’m sitting at work, I feel like my body is being hunched over or compressed, and it makes my breathing even more difficult. The discomfort is terrible on some days, but much better on other days… it’s totally hit or miss. Jerry and I talked about how I really need to learn to relax and rest on my days off. I always have every intention to just lounge around on those days, but then it never happens. I am a spaz, so I am always running errands or doing something around the house. Sunday, I tried my best to relax, and I didn’t leave the house once! I did a few household chores in the morning, then relaxed for the rest of the day. It was awesome, though I will admit that I am constantly stressing about things I could / should be doing when I’m relaxing. Either way, my body got some good rest and I felt much better for it.

I had my appointment last Wednesday for 28 weeks. Everything looked good. My glucose test came back perfectly, we heard his heartbeat, and he measured only 1 centimeter over, which the doctor said was normal. This was only after I asked him to measure me too… so odd that he doesn’t always measure me. At first, the nurse thought my blood pressure was high so that was scary, but then she re-did it and it was perfect as usual. Phew! I also got tested for a bladder infection (TMI?) because of the back pain, but again, that came back fine and we totally dodged a bullet.
My mom made the curtain for his room which came out great. It was her first time ever making one and I’m very impressed and thrilled with how it came out. Other than that, no more nursery progress this week. The main thing is that we really need to get his crib put together. Caleb also got his first Christmas ornament! My parents found a cute little “Caleb” snow globe… love it! And that’s it for the week!
