29 weeks

already? I feel like we just hit 28 weeks. So here we are, 11 weeks to go (give or take). Progress?? hmmm, we got a new bookshelf for the baby's room, so we are set on nursery furniture, we just need to get curtains. We are stocked to the brim with clothes (even though I couldn't help myself but to stock up on baby clothes during the ridiculous sale Old Navy was having) but are still on the look out for the perfect 'bringing baby home' outfit. Maybe silly and we'll probably just have to change her as soon as she gets home, but it's still fun for us-well, me anyways.

No word from the doctor about the glucose test, so it seems that no news is good news in this instance. They said they would only call if there was a problem and they have definitely gotten the results by now. So that is one less thing to worry about!

We brought the swing out into the living room to get help the dogs get used to the craziness that will soon be here. They are, of course, scared to death of it. We swing it a little bit everyday, hopefully their fear will subside by the time the baby gets here. They are also scared of her rocking horse and any toy that makes noise. I think they are in for a rough ride in the coming months (well, years).

Speaking of the doggies, our Dogs & Babies safety class was canceled because the room was flooded. Yes, the city shuts down completely when we get a little precipitation (even indoors). We are going to try again on Sunday. We were also bumped out of our childbirth class due to overbooking. Not sure when we will reschedule that, as the alternate times don't work very well for us. Maybe google will need to teach us everything I should know???

Kaylee's development at 29 weeks--
At 29 weeks pregnant, your baby is almost 17 inches tall now (nearly as tall as he or she will be at birth), and close to three pounds (a weight that will likely more than double — and may even come close to tripling — by delivery time) YIKES!! Her wrinkled skin is smoothing out as more fat is deposited under the skin surface. This fat, called white fat, is different from the earlier brown fat that your developing fetus accumulated. Brown fat is necessary for body temperature regulation while white fat actually serves as an energy source.

Which explains why your energizer baby feels so…well…energized! Space in your baby's living quarters is now at a premium, so you'll be feeling jabs and pokes from elbows and knees mostly. But those kicks will be more vigorous than before (and also less erratic) because your baby is stronger and excitedly responding to all sorts of stimuli — movement, sounds, light, and that candy bar you ate half an hour ago.

  2. I'd be happy to look for a Yankee's cheerleader outfit for you to bring her home in :)
