Hi.

Welcome to She Is Blessed. Hope you follow along on my journey through the adventures of marriage, becoming a mom, creations in the kitchen, my love of all things sweet, and my journey of faith.

29 Weeks

29 Weeks

How far along: 29 weeks, 3 days

Total weight gain: 24 pounds
Maternity clothes? Full on maternity! I've even resorted to wearing Ronnie's pj pants and zip up sweatshirt. I can't wait to get home from work and throw on my comfy clothes. 
Stretch marks? None yet but I'm still consistently using lotion and elasticity oil. 
Sleep: Hit or miss lately. I woke up four times last night tossing and turning. Two of those wake ups were Charley horse related. Those are no joke! I shot out of bed so fast and scared the bejeezus out of Ronnie. 
Best moment this week: Spending the last 5 days in Seattle with my baby daddy. We had a great time but I'm convinced I need sun in my life on a daily basis. The cloudy weather is not for me!
Miss anything? Having a larger selection of clothes to wear, especially as it's getting cooler here in Texas. 
Movement: She moves mostly at night or morning as I'm waking up. I think she's started to change positions because I can feel kicks higher in my stomach instead of the real low ones. I was laying on the couch and Ronnie felt her kick his hand away which made me laugh. She seems to be pretty fiesty. 
Food cravings: Water, especially while walking everywhere in Seattle. I can tell I was getting dehydrated with my puffy fingers and swollen ankles. There's lots of Halloween candy around my office and I just keep searching for Reese's!
Gender:  Still a baby girl in there!
Labor Signs: Nothing yet but I was having such strong pains while in Seattle that I had a dream I delivered her there 
Symptoms: I swear I look like a grandma when I wake up in the morning. Everything is stuff and aches until I get moving. I've started having a hard time bending over and Ronnie had to put my socks and shoes on for me this morning. Everytime I tried to bend over I would feel like I was cutting off my air supply! 

Wedding rings on or off? On
Looking forward to: My baby shower is this weekend! I can't wait to visit with everyone and celebrate Baby J.
