Pregnancy Update -- 29 weeks

How far along? 29 weeks
Weight gain/loss? I believe I have gained around 12 pounds so far. Sadly that is more than with the twins. I only gained 11 pounds by the time I delivered the twins.
Maternity clothes? Yes please
Stretch marks? No stretch marks yet!
Sleep? Um.... Ouch. I'm now getting to the point where I wake up every time I move because it hurts. I know this is just the beginning of a very long and uncomfortable 10 more weeks.
Best moment this week? Well, I passed my glucose test! I was beyond shocked when the doctor's office called to tell me my results.
Food cravings? Does dirt count as food? Since I can't eat dirt (yes, I am now on an iron supplement so the cravings are manageable), I like to eat coconut flavored things. Pina coladas!
Gender? BOY
Belly button in or out? Still in.
Movement? The baby is still wiggling!
What I miss? I miss being able to bathe Scarlet without feeling like I might vomit from bending over. I miss being able to walk in between things without getting stuck and/or hitting my protrusion (belly) on stuff.
What I'm looking forward to: I'm looking forward to checking out the hospital this next week. I can't believe we are close enough to delivery that I'm going to tour the hospital.

Fun fact: It was at 29 weeks with the twins that I was admitted to the hospital in labor. I was then put on bed rest for 4 weeks before I eventually delivered. I cannot believe I am at that point in this pregnancy. The sad part? I'm totally paranoid it's going to happen again. I just wish I could relax and understand that this can be a normal pregnancy. I'm so scared of going through the same thing again even though this is a completely different situation.

I had to laugh at the being able to walk in between thing. HAHAHAHA. At least you have the sense enough to not walk in between the racks of panties at Kohls!!! Good memories. I can't wait to meet Mr. Tiny Todd and squeeze his little face.
