{29 weeks...and growing!}

I am now 29 weeks, 2 days...less than 11 weeks to go and I've got to say - I'm a bit freaked out about what's ahead! I'm very excited to meet our little guy but I'm also a bit nervous about how it's all going to happen! We have our childbirth all-day class on Saturday and our first shower on Sunday with my friends - I am very excited about the shower.
7 months - we made it! We also got a free bottle in the mail!

Met my friend for dinner and we had fun with the iPhone!

Met Kelli and Maya for lunch at Skyline in Clifton - she is SO cute!

Fun trip with the Boyle's to Corbin, KY!

Cumberland Falls!

Mani/Pedi with mom

Yep, 29 weeks and counting...

How far along?  29 + weeks
Maternity clothes? Yep - just went today for the first time to Blue Cocoon on Montgomery - got a dress and my first nursing bra. I also got some clothes at JCPenney last week that I really like & am looking forward to wearing. I'm still wearing a lot of Michelle's clothes that she let me borrow which is awesome but it's also fun shopping for new clothes to wear now & after the baby's here (but hopefully I'll be smaller than when I started so I can get smaller clothes in the future!) :)  
Movement: Oh yes! He kicks some days A LOT - especially if I put my feet up in the laz-y-boy or go to sleep at night. Some days he's much more quiet and doesn't kick as much but he still likes to be active!
Food cravings: None again - I am really not very hungry...though the cookies-n-cream ice cream in the fridge always sounds good!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Mexican still and steak kind of...heavy foods don't sound very good right now.
Have you started to show yet: Yes, everyone now asks the standard questions - "Oh, when are you due? Do you know if it's a boy or a girl?"
Gender: BOY!!
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? Off (had them on probably 1 in the past couple of weeks - I just get hot/swell and take them off so I've pretty much stopped wearing them. 
Happy or Moody most of the time: Pretty happy most of the time - but night time seems to be the worst - I just don't feel my best at night after a long day & I get kind of upset to my stomach...but overall, feeling great!
Most scared about: Still how this little guy is going to come out and breast feeding probably
Any other news on the pregnancy front? Not really - just looking forward to my showers starting and seeing what everyone picks out for our little guy!
What's Richard been up to? Richard put all new trim on the front of the house today & has been overseeing the master bath gut by Deming Custom Remodeling. It's been a long week for Sally because people have been in our house all week. She just follows Richard around all the time and looks pathetic! We also found we have a baby fish in our pond (but no idea how it got there as the fish have been in there for over 6 years and never had babies!) Richard has also been doing other random things around the house to get ready for the other stuff...CertaPro at the beginning of May coming to paint, carpet being installed in the middle of May. He also likes to make sure I've eaten enough and I'm happy with my food! :) Such a nice husband & soon-to-be daddy! :)

I love the blog.....I even find out a few things. I still can't believe you're going to have a baby....but then, it all seemed incredible when your mother was pregnant as well. You have an enormous support group ready to I know everything will turn out fine! Love you

:) I love how even YOU find out a few things...that's pretty good! HA! With pregnancy brain, I probably think I've told you something...but really I just thought it in my head - ha! I still can't believe I'm pregnant either - it's like every day I wake up and think "well, this is pretty cool" - hard to believe we're almost in single digits for the countdown of weeks to meeting him! Oh how life is going to be more fun!
