Pregnancy Update- 29 weeks

I had my Ob appointment this morning. I can't believe I am 29 weeks. I delivered E at 38 weeks and that seems so close. Everything is going well. I think I have gained about 22lbs so far. I have been having lots of Braxton Hicks. They said if I have more than 4 in a hour to let them know. I think I have def. had more than four in an hour but it is usually when I am I busy with E. If I take time to lay down and relax they stop. I had my RhoGam shot and passed my glucose test. My platelets are a little low and will need to be checked again when I go into the hospital for delivery. My one major complaint has been that this baby is laying on my lungs sometimes and I feel like I can't breathe. It is a very uncomfortable feeling. Otherwise, I have had some indigestion and leg cramps but nothing I can really moan about.
and now the belly pics...
Here I am at about 27 weeks with Eliza

Here I am at 29 weeks with #2.

Here I am at about 30 weeks with E.

I think I look about the same. People say I am carrying different this time around but it looks the same to me.

So what do you think? Boy? Girl? Don't forget to stop by Expectnet to participate in my online baby pool!




Last Sunday I attended my friend Erika's shower. She used to live in my development and everyone in the pic. was neighbors. The three of us in white are due within about a week of each other. Crazy right? Stacie (in green) has a little man about 5 months. Why am I such a Hobbit? Seriously, I think Froto would tower over me.

I think the only difference is that you gained more weight in your whole body when pregnant with E. This time you are all belly. Which I guess is because you are eating healthier and getting a lot more exercise chasing E around. Can't wait to meet the new baby (I am thinking girl so we'll see)!

Such cute little belly shots!!! I get sooo big when I'm pregnant. I gain a TON. With my first two I gained like 80 pounds each. This last time I only gained about 50 and I was THRILLED! but I was a lot bigger, go figure. She was my biggest baby though, maybe that's why.

You look great. Fun to look at them in comparison and I think you're carrying the same as well. ;)

Either way you look fantastic with how you carry a beautiful child. How short are you by the way? I'm 5'3 1/2, lol. I feel like everyone towers over me too.

You look great!
For the longest time, N kept permanent residence in my ribcage. It was hard to breathe when I was sitting sometimes. I think he was also doing chin ups in there too!
Glad everything is going good!

You are so cute and small!

My little guy is always dancing on my bladder. A couple times I've felt short of breath and he's kicking higher so I'll probably have the lung issue soon, too. I think you look great and I also think you look like you're carrying about the same in your E pictures and Baby #2 pics.

You do look tiny! :) And in comparing your two pregnancies, I think your belly looks bigger this time while you look smalller... What a cute belly - I wish I had that shape when I was pregnant.

You are so cute, and I think Heather is right.

I don't know but I have a few girly free instructions like portrait pacifiers and fairy masks posted on my blog if you wind up with two princesses!! Don't let the frankenipple story scare you off. Even nursing can get ugly when your accident prone like me!!
