29 weeks

29 weeks....forgot to post this over the weekend!
Baby is now the size of: A butternut squash, about 2.5 lbs
Total weight gain: 18 lbs
Maternity clothes: Maternity jeans.  Really stretching out my shirts so I got a couple basic maternity tees to wear underneath my hoodies or cardigans.  These ones from Target are my favorite b/c they look like normal shirts and don't have that ruching.
Sleep: Wonderful!!  Felt so good to sleep again after my sickness.
Favorite meal this week: We tried a new pork recipe, which was pretty good despite not using the grill.  Recipe below!
Cravings: Warm weather!!
Exercise: Embarrassed to say this....just one day.  The beginning of the week, I was recovering from my illness.  I have always pushed through it in the past but didn't want to carrying this little boy.  And at the end of the week, we had so many plans.  I haven't had a lazy week like this since....can't remember.
Pregnancy aches & pains: Starting to feel really round and stretched out.  I know it comes with the territory of being 7 months pregnant but that doesn't mean I enjoy it!   
Worst moment this week: Had a baby appt and my midwife confirmed what I've been feeling-baby boy is breeched.  I know it's early but Solis was breeched from 20 weeks and NEVER flipped.  Yes, I am thankful that he is healthy.  But we are praying we can deliver him w/o a c-section and go through the whole birthing experience.  And if not, praying that God give us contentment with how he placed this baby.
Best moment this week: Feeling healthy again!!  Felt so good going to Solis's valentine activities and date night with my hubs.  Despite getting slammed with snow again, it was a normal, fun week.
Looking forward to: Temps are going to be in the 40's next week and that will start melting the snow!  And my baby appts are every 2 weeks now so that is so exciting that we're getting closer!


After that awful glucose test, Solis and I got donuts to celebrate.
