29 Weeks

29 WeeksHow far along: 29 weeks & 1 day
Baby updates: Baby Harper is weighing about 2.7 lbs and is around 16 inches long. These days he’s beefing up and developing his brain and bones! He’s staying active and I really cherish getting to feel him move all day (& night)!  It’s a funny, sweet feeling to know that you’re never alone — I always have a little pal with me.
Mamma updates: I’m feeling good — some back aches and random stomach cramps, but usually nothing that lasts more than an hour or two.  I’m needing a lot of rest, but thankfully I’ve been sleeping really well at night.
I’m also starting to try to get a little more educated about the whole labor & delivery process — trying to determine when less-knowledge-is-more versus the things that I really should know in advance… Yikes.
Things I miss: Caipirinhas!
Cravings: Milkshakes and chocolate chip cookies.
Weight: +17 still. I definitely need to be wearing maternity bottoms and am in maternity tops about 85% of the time, but I can still wear most of my old dresses.
Best moments of the week:  There were lots of great moments this past week, but probably the most special was getting to celebrate Mother’s Day for the first time! I know that our little guy still has a few weeks left to bake, but I am his mama nonetheless!  We celebrated by gathering with friends after church at our sweet friend, Deborah’s, for some tasty feijoada and great company.

So thankful for all of the amazing moms in my life — especially my awesome mom Susan, my sweet mother in law, Sharon and my fabulous grandmother, Nan!  XO!
