How Far Along? 29 weeks
Starting my 29th week I’m feeling PREGNANT. It’s crazy what a week or 2 will do. I love feeling her huge movements and having a noticeable belly that strangers comment on. I feel like it’s these next 10 or so weeks that I start bonding with her and the kids/Josh get excited with all her little kicks.
I had my Glucose test last week at 28 weeks. It was the day after I had the 24 hour flu and I was NOT feeling great. Luckily, I didn’t feel too terrible drinking the glucose drink, giving blood, and get a tetanus shot. Not ideal after being sick, but I’m so glad it’s over. So far I haven’t heard anything so I’m guessing I don’t have gestational diabetes.
Sleep? I’ve been sleeping great the last 2 weeks. No more horrible vivid dreams! I’m still having very real dreams, but they aren’t nightmares haha.
Best moment this week? Feeling her hiccup for the first time. She started hiccuping in the 28th week and now she gets them daily.
Movement: Yes, she moves SO much. She moves a lot at night which I really love. I probably won’t love that she has her days/nights mixed up haha but honestly, she moves a lot all day/night. I don’t remember having such an active baby before.
Anything making you queasy? Not queasy, but heartburn has started this past week. She’s definitely growing and my belly is feeling it. I’m at the stage now that taking a deep breath is hard, and sitting can be uncomfortable. Laying on my side feels best and having Tums near after dinner.
Fitness level: I just finished week 7 of Kayla Itsines BBG program. I had to modify a lot because instead of Saturday’s ‘full body’ workout it was just an ab and cardio day. Since my abs are currently non existent I just did arms and legs from the previous days. I’ve been able to walk/run 2-3 miles every other day.
