How far along? 29 Weeks
Total weight: I'm about 163 lbs. That's about 22 pounds or so. I'm going back and forth between 2 doctor office scales so I'm thinking they're not "perfectly" the same. :-) At 28 weeks I was weighing in at 161 lbs. Either way, both doctors are happy about my progress.
Maternity clothes? Oh yes. I am loving maxi dresses right now. James thinks they look like moo-moos. haha. I'm large, it's hot and they are comfy so I'm happy. I'm also having to borrow James' t-shirts. Mine are too tight. I need to make 3 more days and I can live in tank tops and yoga pants! Oh the life...
Stretch marks? Still none to date that I've seen. :-)
Sleep: Sleep has been better. It's not bad though. I'm super hot most of the time so half the time it's no covers for me- which I hate. I'm the girl that sleeps with a comforter in the middle of summer, not because I'm cold but because I like the weight of it. I've also been getting the awful legs cramps. One night they were so bad, the next day my calf muscles were sore. I couldn't figure it out for the life of me. I now know! I'm also thinking a king size bed would be perfect right about now. Too bad that's not in our house plans any time soon. Maybe once Wyatt moves into a big boy bed!
Best moment this week: Hearing the doctor say she doesn't think Wyatt's liver is up at all. Also, James has worked hard this week- painting, moving a dresser twice, mowing, ect... he's such a hard worker.
Miss Anything? Going to the lake.
Movement: He's moving ALL the time. It's awesome. Just makes believe even more that God is building a STRONG little boy inside my right now and preparing him for what's to come.
Food cravings: I really wanted the sushi I got eat on Friday. (Yes, it was ALL cooked!) I will say all the sodium I took in with the sushi sucked! My feet, legs and hands swelled like crazy and it hurt!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope. All's well!
Gender: A BOY!!! Mr. Wyatt James Davis
Symptoms: Swollen feet and leg crams at night.
Belly Button in or out? It's still in. I don't think it'll pop out. If it does I will be surprised. I've got a really deep belly button.
Wedding rings on or off? on but with my temp going up, I have to take it off some.
Happy or Moody most of the time: I'm pretty happy.
Looking forward to: Putting together Wyatt's room little by little.
I'm getting weekly nonstress test (NST) now. We've had two. Basically I lay down with a heart monitor hooked up to my belly for 30 minutes. At Dr. Watkins' office, I have to press a button every time Wyatt moves and at Dr. Hickman's office I just lay there and watch TV. Both places keep me hooked up for 30 minutes. Both test have come back great.
Two weeks ago, I had my gestational glucose test. I had to drink a sugary kool-aid type drink in 5 minutes and have blood drawn exactly an hour later. That came back perfect, praise God. I thought the juice was good. I'm not used to that much sweetness at once so after I chugged it down, it left a bit of an after taste but still not bad. I thought it was going to be worse from the way people talked about it. :-)
I also had blood taken for my thyroid- that came back perfect as well! Yeah!
