29 Weeks

Kate is 29 weeks today and growing fast now.  I feel myself getting "rounder."  My belly sticks straight out, but now the sides are filling out too.  Last night I could feel what I think were little feet sticking out.  She is still right on the outside of my belly and often pushes her little bottom out. 

Baby's size: 15 inches and 2 1/2 pounds, like a butternut squash  
Cravings:  ice cream-good grief, I'm typical  
How I'm feeling:  pretty good.  I have at least one Braxton Hicks contraction every day, no matter how much I'm relaxed.  It feels like she's pressing out on me as hard as she can.  I have to say that I feel so much better now than I have during the rest of the pregnancy.  I'm still having morning sickness about 3 times a week, but other than that I feel good.
Sleep:  Sleep is getting tougher, but I'm getting plenty of rest. 

My favorite part of this week:  hearing her heart beating strong.  Hey, here's a cool trick...look at what our baby can do:

she's getting so strong!  I'm getting my calcium!

Planning:  We picked out the new mom car and it is a black Subaru Outback.  I have always wanted one and it will be here this week.  It will make loading the kids so much easier (you're welcome, aching back) and has plenty of room for a double stroller and groceries.  I laugh about that because Harper loves to dig through the grocery sacks in the back seat on our way home from the store.  

Kate, you'll be here in just 10 weeks.  If this were a championship basketball game, the crowd would be counting down!  10, 9, 8, 7, 6...
