29 weeks!

How far along: 29 weeks! 

Size of baby: An acorn squash...again, not so sure I know what that is. 

Total weight gain/loss: Who knows at this point. I go back to the doctor next Monday, going every 2 weeks now. 

Maternity clothes: Almost always, but still throw in some non maternity every now and then. 

Gender: Sweet baby boy! James Austin Green!

Movement: This morning I felt him in two different places on opposite sides of my belly. I guess he was stretching or something but it was so cool, like I could really feel how long he was. 

Sleep: Sleep is not amazing anymore. This carpel tunnel is absolutely awful. 

What I miss: Being able to sleep through the night. And the awesome energy I had a few weeks ago...I am definitely getting tired easily. 

Cravings: Nothing new really. About to eat a big fat slice of left over baby shower cake and I'm pretttttty excited about it. 

Best moment this past week: I had an awesome shower on Saturday...two of my girlfriends hosted it in Danville and it was so much fun. I will be blogging about this soon! 

Symptoms: This carpel tunnel is so awful. I wake up 3-5 times a night in crazy pain and throughout the day my fingers get numb/tingle and just plain hurt. In the middle of the night I usually end up begging Austin to "please cut my hand off." I also worked 3 days in a row last week and by the end of that my feet were swollen some kinda awful. I even had to buy new shoes in a bigger size for the shower! ekkk! 

What I'm looking forward to: Baby!! I feel like the weeks are flying by and I'm getting so excited to meet him! We also have a couples shower this Saturday in Fayetteville and I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone.   

Milestones: Not a lot going on, he is just growing and putting on the pounds!  

Mood: happy and thankful    

Labor Signs: Mr. James is still baking!

Wedding rings on or off: on

A little more nursery progress. Got the curtains up and the little bookshelf put together. Still need to get everything on the walls and organize/arrange stuff.

The glider chair will go in that corner. It should be here in 4-6 weeks or so. Hurrrrry upppp!
