{29 Week Bump}

How far along?: 29 Weeks!
Total weight gain?: 19ish pounds, which is crazy to me since I have 2.5 months left.
Size of baby?: Baby is the size of an acorn squash! She's 15.2 inches and 2.54 pounds, and I feel every bit of her!
Maternity clothes?: You guys basically have yet to see me in anything but maternity leggings, every time I try to switch it up, I go to put on pants and say, "NOPE!" I wear my belly band when I have to, but it's just not as comfortable anymore. I'm getting too big!
Stretch marks?: Not really, but mine from Henry are kinda peeking their way back through. Ugh.
Sleep: We pushed through another croup attack, Henry is working on sleeping in his room all night and when he does I wake up like Anna on Coronation Day. Praise Jesus for good sleep nights.
Best moment this week: All the Christmas festivities and hiccups. <3<3<3 We've been to Christmas in the park, The Magic Tree and a Christmas Tree Farm and we've had a blast. New pics to come. And just like big bro, little sis is consistently having hiccups in utero and it's my absolute favorite way to feel her. It's the best way for someone else to feel her because it usually lasts for several minutes and I enjoy them because they're much softer than her usual antics. 
Miss anything?: Not cramping up in the middle of the night, every.single.night. Woo those charlie horses/leg cramps are intense!!!!
Movement?: This child never sleeps. I know I always say it, but she moves constantly! OR she twitches in her sleep like bubba and me! That just hit me, that could be exactly what it is. Henry had hooorrrrid startle reflexes for months that continually woke him up from naps and sleep! And we both twitch all night long. We're weirdos. :) 
Food cravings: Just all the sweets. Nothing else sounds good, I'll take a few bites and be done with it. 
Anything making you queasy or sick?: Everything? My doc said that typically your second pregnancy is much harder, but delivery is much easier. Here's hoping? After Henry's birth I could totally deal with a miserable pregnancy to enjoy a quick and easy delivery/recovery! Who's the turd that said 6 weeks was enough recovery time for a woman after pushing a human being out of her? In some cases, sure, but definitely not overall. I don't believe you're physically *or* mentally & emotionally prepared after six short weeks. Just my opinion though.
Gender: GIRL <3 <3 <3
Labor signs: I've been having a lot of "period" cramps which they say are a sign of practice labor.
SymptomsOther people have started noticing the waddle. It hurts to walk. I cramp up all night long.  I'm nauseous. Sensitive. I'm getting sharp pains down under lol. The girls are sore, and big. ;) My hair is falling out, my skin is a mess. The list goes on. :-D 
Belly button in or out?: In, but so big and weird lol. It's like you could fall in and get lost. Hahahahaha.
Happy or moody most of the time?: BOTH! And that's totally ok! I'm allowed to be. My body isn't mine-it's hers. My hormones are good kermit versus evil kermit, and that's not my fault lol. I work crazy, inconsistent hours. I'm raising a boy who is in prime toddler range, learning to deal with his emotions and feelings. While always trying to remain patient and understanding, balancing work and home life and putting myself on the back burner. #MOMLIFE, right? No complaints here, just reasoning with myself that it is ok to be happy and moody while growing a human. ;)
