I also had to pack away most of my small maternity tops...the ones from last pregnancy aren't fitting so well...they creep up. But I am not packing them for storage, nope, I am packing them to sell/donate! Let the purging begin...
How far along: 29 weeks 6 days
How big is baby?: According to the APP, I'm Expecting: Started the Week 29 as the size of a Butternut Squash and is about to be a Large Cabbage.
Weight gain?: 1 lb this week, 26 total
Stretch marks?: Linea nigra and bright, blue veins
Sleep?: Great sleep this week, still sleeping on my stomach some.
Best moment?: I really enjoyed picking out plumbing and electrical fixtures. At first, this seemed like a daunting task, but every thing we get to pick out or decide makes the house feel more real. I mean, I see pictures, I know we're building, but I still pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming.

It was also nice (despite some toddler tantrums) to spend a lot of time with Aidan. One day he even napped for 3 hours and was then very patient while I ran a lot of errands, so I bought him some rewards. I enjoyed buying him a ball, crayons, and an Elmo DVD...hours of entertainment and one happy boy.
Worst moment?: We experienced an epic toddler tantrum/melt down on July 4th. Aidan refused to nap and he purposely made himself sick...so what did he do, he napped in the car.
Food cravings?: Just like last week, seafood! Especially shrimp.
Symptoms?: Round Ligament Pain - it was worse this week, probably because I was home most of the week with Aidan since his daycare was closed.
Exercise?: I walked 5+ miles and was at the gym lifting weights 2 days last week.
Movement?:Owen has found my rib cage, and apparently how to kick/hit it hard...just like his brother. Owen moves constantly, at least every hour or so. I keep waiting for Aidan to be around me to feel Owen kick.
Belly button?: Still the partial outie.
What I miss?: Being able to sit on the floor and not struggle to get up.
TMI: I had to tweak my combination of magnesium again since my regularity went absent. I thought I had it figured out since I had to add iron to my daily intake. These issues lead to problems with the 'rhoids too. :/
What I'm looking forward to?: Continuing to organize Owen's nursery and maybe adding a few decorations. AJ is supposed to go on a fishing trip for a belated birthday celebration since the weather caused a cancellation in June. So it'll be a quiet weekend at home for us or a simple day trip if we go anywhere.
