Baby #2 - Weeks 29-31

I'm back with another pregnancy update and I'm so behind!  But I definitely wanted to document these exciting 3 weeks!  A lot happened developmentally for baby, and I hit the 30 week mark!  As far as baby girl: all 5 senses are functioning this month - isn't that amazing?  
There has been been significant growth in her head (for her growing brain!), and more muscle development. Baby girl is about 3 pounds.  We had some fun family outings, a visit from John's parents, and Andrew has especially gotten more in tune to the pregnancy! 

As far as mama - I've had some good spurts of energy, and I'm feeling pretty good mostly!  Sleep is still somewhat difficult, and I have officially gotten true pregnancy brain.  I'm forgetting everything, putting the milk carton in the cabinets, and I can't seem to formulate proper sentences.

So with that in mind, less words, and more pictures:  
Here are weeks 29-31!

How far along? 29 weeks
Baby Size: Baby is the size of a butternut squash.
Total weight gain/loss: Around 28 lbs.
Maternity clothes? I pretty much just wear dresses!  They are the most comfortable!
Stretch marks? Nope, not yet.
Sleep: Eh, sleep is just ok.  I'm definitely sleeping a lot less because I can't fall asleep, or stay asleep!  Lots of tossing and turning, and heartburn.
Best moment this week: Andrew is being so sweet to my growing belly, and will give the baby kisses and hugs all day long.  It's the best.  He even "fed" her grapes through my belly button because he thought she was hungry :)
Miss Anything? No, not really anything specifically.  
Movement: Kicking like crazy, and rolling around, especially at night.
Food cravings: Still sweets and baked goods!  And I passed my second glucose test - hooray!

Belly Button in or out? In, but getting more shallow ;)

Best moment this week: I have gotten into serious nesting mode!  Lots of decorating and fun projects for the nursery.  And of course shopping - it's getting a little out of hand ;) 
Miss Anything? I've finally indulged a little in deli sandwiches, and I just heat them up like crazy!
