29 Week Survey-Baby O #2

How far along? 29 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: -1,  up to 163 lbs.  22 lbs. total.  Had gained 28 lbs. total with Graydon at 29 wks along.
How big is baby? Your baby now weighs about 2 1/2 pounds (like a butternut squash) and is a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel. His muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and his head is growing bigger to make room for his developing brain. - Baby Center
Maternity clothes?  Yes, mostly. Except for my pajama pants or shorts, or sweat shirts...or sweaters I wear over almost everything.
Sleep: It's starting to get sort of bad. I am getting more uncomfortable and I am now waking up a couple times to readjust during the night. 
Best moment this week: Going to Target with Chris, taking Graydon to see Santa, having Chris's parents over for dinner, and then going to Jackson to see Megan, Pat, Amelia and Colette on Sunday! So much fun.
Movement: Yes, a lot!
Food cravings: Comfort type food. Fruit, OJ, ice cream.
Food aversions:  Nothing anymore really.
Gender: Baby girl!
Labor Signs: I keep having contractions occasionally...not the BH like I had with Graydon, much more painful. Only happens if I overexert myself it seems. Just trying to be careful.
Symptoms:  Tired. And ohh man the heartburn has been kicking in now. Ugh!
Belly Button in or out? It is pretty flat now.
Wedding rings on or off?  Still on and for a long time hopefully. :)
Stretchmarks? Just around my belly button. I have been good about using lotions and belly balm almost every day.
How are you feeling? Getting more uncomfortable...and I seem to be very tired all the time lately.
  What I am looking forward to:Getting my hair done Wednesday, my Holiday Girls Gathering with my work friends, my work Christmas party on Saturday along with Christmas shopping and seeing the movie Lincoln! Not sure what Saturday holds. Probably cleaning and grocery shopping.
What I miss:  Not feeling so tired all the time.
Weekly Wisdom:
  Rest when you can!
 Milestones:  In 3rd tri now...still can't believe it!
Pregnancy Moments with Chris and others:  Graydon has been touching my belly a lot and talking to "baby sister". I think he felt her move a couple times but I am still not totally sure he understands what is going on.  When we visited Megan she let us borrow her doppler so we were playing with that last night and listening to the babies heartbeat, which is pretty cool!!  More and more people at my work are slowly finding out that I am not planning on coming back after I have the baby. I am so excited and so sad at the same time. Yesterday Chris said to me, "Next year is going to fly by. The baby will be here, then at the end of Spring I will graduate, then Summer will be here, and Summer ALWAYS flies by. And then before we know it, it will be Fall and the Holidays again." I was like OMGosh stoooooooop it!!! Ahh! I just want to enjoy next year and take in ever moment of getting to stay home with my kiddos. I cannot wait!!
Also, a 2.5 lb. butternut squash seems so huge to me right now. I cannot believe how big the baby is already. And then reality sinks in about how she is going to more than double in the next two months...ahh!! :)

29 Weeks along:

Trying to get a cute pic with Gray by the tree but he wasn't really digging it.

You better take it easy!! I'd let your doc know about those contrax. Maybe have an NST to make sure all is well. I am overly cautious now that I see the bad side of things. Not that anything is wrong, but peace of mind feels great.
