29 Weeks... and the lull of "after Christmas"

So Christmas is officially over, and we're now in the sloooow week before New Years. Why does this week seem like the longest of the year? All the adrenaline and excitement of Christmas is over, and it's still too early to be excited for 2010. (At least for me it is)

Not much exciting news on the pregnancy front. She's still in there, doing her thing, kicking away and making my heart melt a little more each day. :) I love the way she plays little games with me. It's like she knows the difference in my voice when I'm talking to her compared to anyone else. She kicks on cue when I start talking to her!

**How far along? 29 Weeks... 11 to go!!

**Total weight gain/loss: Man this question stings... 25

**How big is baby?: She's around 2 1/2 lbs now. :)

*Maternity clothes? This question seems a bit ridiculous this late in the game.

**Stretch marks? Still just the lonesome dove.

**Sleep: Actually has continued to be God sent. I'm still loving life! (For now)

**Best moment this week: The loan documents are being set up for our mortgage! We'll be moved in soon!!

**Movement: The last few days she's become a wild child.

**Food cravings: I found a gas station that still serves Slush Puppies... you know, the BEST SLUSHY IN THE WORLD?!?! oh.my.gawd I'm going to gain another 25 lbs before this is over.

**Gender: Sweet baby girl!

**Labor Signs: Let's hope these stay away for a while!

**Belly Button in or out? Still hanging on for dear life.

**What I am looking forward to: Getting a slush puppie after work...hehe

**Weekly Wisdom: Cry all you want. Listen to mushy songs and cry your eyes out. I guess that's not really wisdom, since it doesn't come with a "great outcome" per se, but I've really been taking advantage of my (alone) crying time lately.

**Milestones: Next week we'll be 3/4 of the way to 40 weeks. Wow.


  1. I'm a random stranger who ran across your blog. I'm 29 weeks, too, so I love your updates. You make me feel "normal". Thank you! :)

  2. ooo...you look fantastic!:) I really think this week between the holidays is crap - it's the longest short week ever! I can't get motivated to do anything but blog, bump, and continually edit my registry!
