Week 29

Baby girl's name will be....

Here's the story behind her name :)

How far along? 29 weeks

Total weight gain: 14 pounds
Maternity clothes? Still rockin my normal jeans with the belly band. I love longer shirts so I don't have to worry about my zipper totally being down. I've been wearing a couple maternity shirts my sister gave me, but mostly my normal clothes work fine with a few adjustments (my button up shirts just look ridiculous. Thank heavens for belts).
Stretch marks: Dreading the day I say yes to this question.. I don't know why though. I'm LDS... no one sees my stomach ever anyways.. haha.
Best moment this week: Just organizing her room. I love spending time in there.. It's all so exciting. She's almost here!
Miss anything? Rolling over in bed quickly. You really do take it for granted. It takes a lot of time and effort now. My back hurts so bad in the middle of the night!
Movement? It's slowing down. I'm thinking she's running out of room now. She's probably getting nice and snug.
Food cravings: Nothing really. But thinking about going to Utah this week Stafford and I both made little lists of places we have to stop. Bajio Mexican Grill is always #1. He loves Bato's, I love Zupas, In-n-out has been sounding ok lately and CHIPOTLE!!! I think there's one in Draper we're going to have to find. Basically burritos have been on the brain. Weird.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope.. The head aches are occasional, but I've been okay.
Have you started to show: DUH. There's no hiding this belly. I walked into my sister's apartment last night and our friend looked at me and said "woah, it's so weird seeing you pregnant!" haha I was even wearing a sweartshirt! I didn't know you could tell in a sweatshirt! I think that's a new stage of this pregnancy.
Gender: Girl!!!
Labor signs: None this week.
Belly button in or out? in, but really shallow. By the end of the day the edges are kind of popped up. It's funny looking.
Wedding ring on or off? on.
Happy or moody most of the time? Happy :) it's been a great week. 
Looking forward to: Hopefully buying a chair for her room and some baskets from IKEA.. (they're $17 each and we need 8 of them... that means they'll be more expensive than the actual book case we bought! Stafford's dying over it. We'll probably just buy 4 and make our poor baby suffer.)

Pregnancy has been great, but I swear as soon as the third trimester started everything became uncomfortable. Everything is up in my ribs, it's hard to breathe sometimes, I waddle everywhere, my feet hurt all the time. It's just a whole new pregnancy basically haha. But I'm living the dream right now. Stafford and I are just loving our little girl more and more everyday. I'm excited for Thanksgiving and the holidays to start! I love being around family and being pregnant around family is even better! So enjoy your wonderful week with friends and family!
