How big is baby?: According to What to Expect When You’re Expecting: Started the week as the size of a Eggplant and about to be a Squash. The fruit doesn't change as often as it did early on. Going into week 29, Aidan is approximately 17 inches long and weighs 2.9 lbs.
Weight gain?: About 1lb. Total weight gain is 21 lbs.
Stretch marks?: Not yet.
Maternity clothes?: Definitely. I had to get more shirts to fit my growing belly.
Sleep?: Sleep is still great, except for the occasional leg cramp waking me up! I am amazed that I can still sleep on my stomach, but again, only if I fall asleep before Aidan starts his movement. I typically wake up on my stomach no matter which position I feel asleep in.
Best moment this week?: Celebrating passing my PE with coworkers and the baby shower my family put together. It was a great weekend spending time with wonderful people.
Worst moment this week?: None that I can think of this week!
Food cravings?: Anything chocolate. Seriously, I can't get enough chocolate.
Symptoms?: Leg cramping at night. I also noticed my veins are extremely prominent and dark blue. Kind of looks like spider man veins - according to AJ.
Exercise?: I walked 4 miles this week and worked out at the gym 3 times.
Movement?: Aidan continues to kick and move around, and there are times when his movement, whether kicks or punches, are getting stronger! I can feel him under my ribs, though he's not kicking or punching them, just feels like he is laying against my ribs.
Belly button?: Half outie, half flush with my stomach.
What I miss?: Being able to easily touch my toes!
Labor signs?: Not yet. Hope to keep it that for a while!
Purchases: No purchases this week...plenty last week to keep me occupied.
What I'm looking forward to?: We start the birthing classes this coming Tuesday, and I am excited about that. I'm sure it will make the next 4 weeks go by quickly.
