29 Week Bumpdate!

So I had my birth center appointment today and everything looks good. :) I got my blood test and Rhogam shot and didn't even pass out. Baby kept kicking the doppler when the midwife was trying to check her heartbeat lol. She's measuring 2 weeks big apparently, so maybe she will come a little early! (That'd be nice since Kaylee came at 42 weeks and 3 days...) After that, we went to Kay's pediatrician appointment. She basically turned into Super Monster Kid the minute we stepped in the office. She cried, screamed, thrashed, and insulted the doctor, but it was nothing I couldn't handle and we got the checkup done. Then we went thrifting and found a bassinet (with dragonflies on it!), a baby bath, a shopping cart cover, and some adorable clothes. All cheap and in great shape, definitely a good thrift day! So tomorrow I'll be 29 weeks, I can't believe another week has passed already. She will be here before we know it!! :D

Week: 29 weeks, only about 77 days to go!

Due date: November, 28.

Symptoms: Swollen legs and awful heartburn. Other than that, I've been feeling better.

Feeling: Happy and excited. :)

Cravings: Bland food. I wish I could live on bread and pasta.

Aversions: Anything with an odor lol.

Sleep: Pretty bad. xP

Health: Relatively good.

Baby's size: About 2 and a half pounds and 15 inches!

Weight gain: I went down 3 pounds for some reason, so around 37 pounds.

Movement: Super active, as usual!

Gender: GIRL!!!!

Name: Brynna Rose. <3

BabyCenter update: Your baby now weighs about 2 1/2 pounds (like a butternut squash) and is a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel. His muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and his head is growing bigger to make room for his developing brain. To meet his increasing nutritional demands, you'll need plenty of protein, vitamins C, folic acid, and iron. And because his bones are soaking up lots of calcium, be sure to drink your milk (or find another good source of calcium, such as cheese, yogurt, or enriched orange juice). This trimester, about 250 milligrams of calcium are deposited in your baby's hardening skeleton each day.

Kaylee came at 42 weeks! OH wow! Both of mine were born a week early!

Best wishes for the rest of your pregnancy... hopefully you won't have to wait as long as you did with Kaylee! LOL :)

So if they say it's measuring 2 weeks ahead now, you are the same as me :) It's got to be a bit frustrating that they keep pushing it back and pushing it up...
But none the less, it will come whenever she's ready. Wow, I can't believe your daughter came at 42 weeks. Thats a long time it seems to be pregnant. Mine came at 38 weeks. And glad you guys found some baby stuff today! We still haven't purchased anything yet. But we did get our first gift :)
How exciting!! Absolutely love her name. I remember those swollen legs, especially with my second pregnancy =)
Enjoy the rest of your week!
