28 & 29 Week Bump Date

Another week down, 2 more weeks and we will be in single digits, it still baffles me at how quickly time is going. I feel so unprepared this time around - I am sure I was way more organised last time around - perhaps that is the norm for first time mums. The second time around you are somewhat a "pro" (well I maybe would not go that far), but I think I am more relaxed this time round (although my parents think I am a total Biatch this time around - they are convinced I am having a girl!!!).


***Please excuse the bathroom tiles - we have not gotten around to renovating the bathroom - also there are 3 mirrors in there, so it looks like a bit of a vortex when you look in them. *** Oh and I am not really that tall, I had to stand on Keaton's step so that I could snap my bump!!!!

How far along: currently 29 weeks
Stretch marks: Nope
Movement: All the time 
Currently craving: Carrots, I suddenly just want to eat them all the time. 
Total weight gain: I think in total now its up to 6kgs - that excludes the weight I lost in the beginning when I was sick.
Maternity clothes: I am not loving most of the maternity wear on offer at the moment, which makes wearing clothes very hard, some mornings I just stand and look at all my clothes and think " why cant you just fit me. just for today?"
Sleep: Insomnia is slowly setting in - which sucks because I am on meds for my sinuses and they make me super sleepy, and when I take them in the mornings, all I want to do is sleep, which does not go well at work.
Best moment this week: Started washing all the towels, I know that is probably not something that most people would put down, but the more that gets done, the closer we are to the impending arrival of number 2.
Big Brother: Has made it very known that he will not be sharing his toys with the baby, am not too sure why, but that is the latest.
Miss anything? Not really
Gender: find out on the 20th
Symptoms: Swelling in my fingers - it sucks
Labour signs: no
Belly button in or out? The top is starting to become an outie, the rest is still an innie
Wedding rings on or off? On
Looking forward to: My midwife appointment next week and also finding out Pink or Blue

The heat is really not helping this time around - I am sure it was not this hot when I was pregnant the last time, I feel like a whale, and don't want to move - which is not a good thing when you have a toddler.

Anyway - 29 weeks down, 11 more to go.
