29 Weeks

Whew!  Has it not been the craziest month?  I feel like Christmas was here and gone in a flash, and I barely got to take it all in.  Yet, as I look back on posts that I've made (or need to make) I see that it's been a precious season of blessing.

My house has that deflated feeling that lingers the week between Christmas and New Year.  There are way too many leftovers in the fridge, countless presents scattered across the floor and garbage bags full of paper sitting by the door.  Sigh.  Like so many seasons, Christmas came and left a little too quickly.  

You'll be reading all about it soon enough, but for now this 29 week update will have to suffice.  I'm playing catch-up at work and then headed home to start tearing down the decorations while Eli is away with my in-laws.  Then it's some much needed relaxation time with my hubby, and more cleaning tomorrow.  In a perfect world there will be some blogging thrown in there too, so stick around.  

How Far Along: 29 Weeks

Size of baby: Ellie is the size of butternut squash.  

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I'm about 2 pound over my pre-pregnancy weight which means that things are looking up...literally. 

Maternity Clothes: My parents bought me some much needed maternity clothing for Christmas.  I am so much more comfortable now, and I look a little more presentable too!

Gender: It's a girl...Elizabeth Victoria Watson!!!

Movement: Ellie's Movement has decreased quite a bit which is typical since she is running out of room.  However, she is much, much stronger now!

Sleep: Well, with all the company I've had a lot of help with Eli which means that sleep is going great!

What I miss: Diet Cokes....somebody better be bringing me some to the hospital!

Cravings: Nothing too strong, although I'm pretty stuck on fish.  

Symptoms: None that I can think of. I'm feeling great this week!
