John Paul: 29 Weeks...

How far along? 29 weeks

Total weight gain/loss? 17 pounds

Maternity clothes? Still have a few that aren't, but for the most part, yes!

Sleep? Once he quits moving when I lay down, sleep is pretty good.  And, I only wake up about once/night at this point.

Movement? I feel the little guy the most at night.

Food cravings/aversions? Nothing new...just getting fuller faster...thank goodness :)

Gender? Boy

Labor signs? Just a few BH contractions here and there.

What others are saying: Nothing new this week.*
*This was typed BEFORE I went to the grocery store today.  Here is the conversation at the check-out:
Bagger: "You're about to hatch, aren't you?"
Me: "Well, actually, I have a little over two months left."
Checker: "Are you kidding, she gets HUGE!  You'll know.  She gets SO big (using arm motions and all).
Thanks :)

What I miss: Oh, just bending over/down as easily, but I'm still feeling great and am able to do quite a bit which I am thankful for.

What I am looking forward to: December :)

Milestones: Sometimes I think 10 weeks seems so far away, and others I kind of go into panic mode, haha.  I've made about 5-6 freezer meals this week, gotten the nursery basically ready, ordered a few new onesies for the little guy and am thinking about installing the carseat soon.  Beyond that, I just am getting a few to-do lists written and the baby book started.  Also, I'm slowly getting Christmas presents ordered and ready to go so we can enjoy December when JohnPaul arrives.  Things are good :)


  1. I know it's not funny, but the checker/bagger story made my day. Ah the joys of a small town. You are adorable!


  2. What?! You are not even big! Crazy lady!!! You look gorgeous!!
    Go you on the freezer meals and Christmas shopping--I really need to get in gear~!
