28 & 29 Weeks Baby Bump & Birthing Plan

How Far Along? 29 Weeks, 4 days!  

Size of my Angel? 28 weeks - 14.8 in - size of Chinese cabbage, 2.25 lbs 
                             29 weeks - 15.25 in - size of butternut squash, 2.5 lbs

Maternity Clothes? All

Weight Gain?  I gained 4 lbs since my last appointment 4 weeks ago, but dr said that's normal.  I am obsessed with calorie counting still and I'm trying to remember I have to eat those 1800 cals for her.  But I'm ready to diet asap after she gets here.  I hope I can find something that works well with breastfeeding b/c I want to bf and I want to still get the weight off asap. 

Stretch Marks? No PTL, I do have that Linea Nigra line, but other than that I haven't seen any stretch marks and I'm still lathering the oil and cream morning and night.  

Gender? Sweet baby GIRL.... Millie Ladell

Sleep? I still haven't tried Tylenol pm but I may need to really start soon, the tossing and turning is killing me.  I hate the back pains, but they shall pass.   

Food Cravings? not much right now except I am trying not to eat too much sugar.

What I Miss Most? Wearing my own clothes and feel comfortable and not being so tired. 

Symptoms? None 

Belly Button? Poking out but not too bad, hopefully it will go back in once she gets here.  

I am so ready for Millie to make her debut, I can't believe how much you can love someone that you've never met.  I am beyond ecstatic and ready for her birth. 

I am currently on my last week of birthing classes and they've been interesting.  I don't know if I've mentioned it but my birthing plan is to go natural the entire way.  This is something very personal to me and while a lot of people seem to think I'm crazy, as one lady said at the birthing classes.  This is a decision I made early on into my pregnancy and one that I really plan on trying to stick with.  I love the idea of being "free" not tied down to the bed, pump, etc.  Being able to jump in the warm shower to ease labor pains as needed and being about to walk around.  Yes, I do sound crazy to some, but this is a real personal choice for me and if it's too much to bare then I already know what I must do and how far along is too far to change my mind.  I personally don't see me changing my mind, but we shall see. 

Happy Monday Ladies!!
