Hi friends! Before we get to the “bumpdate,” you might want to go back and see if you won the Apera Bag giveaway!
Did you win??
We’re *supposed* to be getting some snow today, but I’ll believe it when I see it. It seems like every time I see a little snowflake on my iPhone Weather App, there’s absolutely NOTHING to show for it. We’ve yet to go sledding. We’ve yet to have a snowball fight. Just give me one good snow before Spring comes and I’ll be a happy gal. Snow dancers – dance for me!
What is baby up to at 29 weeks?
- Your baby now weighs about 2 1/2 pounds (about the size of 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.
- This trimester, about 250 milligrams of calcium are deposited in your baby’s hardening skeleton each day.
How is mama feeling?
A great week of workouts!! I’m still chugging along and feeling really good. The only thing that’s changing is my ability to RUN. It’s just not comfortable anymore – too much pressure! If we run during bootcamp, I tend to skip or do slow high knees instead. It’s so easy to modify any athletic movement – just do what works for your body and keep moving!
Here’s the rundown from last week:
- Monday: Bootcamp
- Tuesday – Total body strength + 20 min. ArcTrainer
- Wednesday: Bootcamp
- Thursday: Zumba
- Friday: Bootcamp + 2 mile walk
- Saturday – Zumba
- Sunday – Power walk with a friend for 6 miles <-don’t you just love it when you get to talking and the time flies!
Looking back, there should have been a REST day in there. I’ll do better this week.
Going much better! We bought a humidifier for our bedroom and it’s helped so much with my breathing. My nose had been so dry, too dry. Now Travis and I can finally breath.
BOY! Porter Killian
OUTTIE!! See picture above.
None! <-a post to come TOMORROW!
Yes – this guy LOVES to waller around in there!
Round ligament pain (in my hips at the end of the day)
Pregnancy-induced rhinitis (snotty nose)
- Anything sour
- Nut butter on bananas
I passed my glucose test!!
The orange drink of which we will not speak…
THANK GOD!! For anyone who doesn’t know, around 24-28 weeks, most doctors ask that you take a glucose test to determine if you have gestational diabetes. It involves drinking 50 GRAMS of glucose (sugar!) and then having your blood drawn (or in my case, a finger prick test) to see how well your body breaks down the sugar.
The taste isn’t so bad actually, especially if they serve it cold (kinda like a Nehi Orange soda). But the hour of nausea afterwards is hell. Thankfully, I passed. If you fail, you have to drink 100 GRAMS of glucose and test at the 3 hour mark. I’m so sorry for anyone who fails. I want to give you a big hug.
QUESTION: BTDT mamas – how did you fair on the glucose test? Has it snowed yet where you live?
