29 weeks pregnant update

Published June 15, 2014 by ivfdream

How far along? Week 29

Total weight gain: 22 pounds or 1 stone, 8lbs. Stayed the same this week.

Started at 143 lbs. Am now 165 lbs and am 1 lb over recommended weight.

Maternity clothes? Bought two cardigans which are not maternity and can wear now and after. Also, bought a new bright white maternity vest from Next. Fancied a treat!

Stretch marks?

An unbelievable amount. Wrecking my sleep every night. Baby moves as I type! Moves all day, all night. Energetic!

Best moment this week:
People still asking when I’m due and not being afraid now, last week they thought I might have put a bit of weight on but now it’s definite! I’m pregnant! Yippee! Love the movement and getting a positive scan from my consultant.

Miss anything? Wearing my skinny jeans. Wearing anything I want to in my wardrobe. Now I have a limited wardrobe.

Belly button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off: On. No bloating of feet or swollen ankles.

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy this week. 🙂

Looking forward: Getting to the 30 week mark next Friday. Another trademark. Waiting to get contracts finalized for new house. Holidays in two weeks.

Food cravings: No.

Anything making you queasy or sick? No.

Gender: not finding out.

Symptoms: Leg cramps have started last two nights. My calf goes into spasm and it gets freaky. Hands getting very numb at night along with knuckles feeling slightly painful too after night sleep.
Older and frequent symptoms include movements, tightening of vagina, heartburn, veins on chest to my breast darkening this week. Some small skin tags on my chest area.

Labour signs: no! Far too soon.
