Baby Brown: Week 29

How far along: 29 weeks

Due date: March 27, 2016

Baby Size: delicious pineapple

Weight gain: who cares... it's worth it.

Maternity Clothes: should I take this one off? I mean, I wear a non maternity shirt every now and then, but for the most part I am embracing the bump.

Stretch Marks: nope!

Sleep: hasn't gotten any better this week.  D.J. slept in the guest room one night this past week and was at his parents house another night, so I was able to stretch across the whole bed, but flipping from one side to the other is very hard and getting up in the morning is so exhausting - I literally lose my breath. And I swear this child of mine is active all day, but at night he seems to start his karate class - kicks, rolls, or whatever he is doing in there is INSANE at night time. 

Gender: BOY!!! 

Name: Our sweet baby Harrison!

Movement: all the time! I'm starting to wonder at what point these movements are going to be how they remain for the rest of the pregnancy.  I know I still have a good while to go, but I can't imagine getting bigger! 

Best moment this week: cleaning up the house and getting the holiday decorations put away. I also got a new "chair" at work.  The strength and conditioning coach at the school brought me over a ball to help relieve some of my lower back/hip pressure this kiddo is giving me already! Hopefully I will like the way it feels throughout the rest of this pregnancy! Any other tips/tricks for desk workers and pregnancy would be great! 

Looking forward to: our first baby shower this weekend! I cannot believe it's already that time to celebrate this little boy!  My sister, family members and friends are coming in from all over to shower our sweet boy and and can't be more excited! 

Husband is: looking forward to the baby getting here.  I think my pregnancy pains this week are more than he is used to (as are they for me too!).  He was able to go to the Redskins game this weekend without me, which I was grateful for because I don't know if I could have lasted the whole day with him at the game! 

Food cravings: not craving anything special.  Side note - I have been loving the smell of cleaning supplies.  Anything from those clorox wipes to a clean mopped floor! Don't worry I'm not going around sniffing these items, but when I come across that smell in passing it just smells so... CLEAN! 

Anything making you queasy or sick: nothing new.

Labor Signs: nothing yet, but the countdown is ON!

Missing Most: hot tubs, hot yoga, laying on my stomach, getting comfortable easily,

Symptoms: all typical third trimester symptoms.  Lately I have been feeling as though my muscles are being pulled in every direction possible - which they very well are! My hips/lower back feel like they are "preparing" for labor - lots of pressure from the extra weight and whatever else happens when you get ready to give birth! 

Nursery: Got even more accomplished this weekend on the nursery! Dresser is now complete with knobs, purchased a mirror and lamp and now just waiting on a few more things for it to be complete!

Belly Button in or out? innine/flat/outie.  It has a mind of its own.

Wedding rings on or off? on, and haven't noticed any swelling.

Mood: feeling great, but definitely starting to feel pregnant.  Sometimes I get sad at how big I am getting but remind myself that my body is amazingly growing another human who is bound to be a big boy. 

Workouts: meh. working are few and far between.  getting up on the hour and walking around the school every now and then.  Hoping to get to a pool in the near future to float and feel weightless - even if it does mean I have to workout! 


  1. You look wonderful!
    Why do babies become active at night? Mine did the same thing.
    Have a great rest of the week.

  2. You're amazing, lady!!! Little man will be here before you know it so savor these last weeks/months of pregnancy !!!
