Week 29

29 and feelin' fine... this week was exhausting.  I got a new student 2 weeks ago and "the honeymoon is over" - she used to be very quiet and now she is a terror.  Dealing with her has worn me out!  Thankfully I have wonderful counselors, principals, and a team of teachers to help me because I need it.  This past weekend I went shopping for SIX HOURS at thrift stores, looking for things to decorate Mason's room.  I found the sweetest wall art that will go above his dresser, and I also found an awesome piece of driftwood that I'll find a place for somewhere.  I couldn't pass it up. 

After all my thrifting I got a pedicure.  My feet hurt and I can't reach my toes very well to paint them, so I deserved it :).  I scheduled our childbirth classes and my breastfeeding class this week.  The childbirth classes take up every Thursday night in January, from 6:30-9!  Bummer.  Especially since I will be learning about birth on my birthday.  At least we only have to go to breastfeeding class.  My January is filling up and it's stressing me out to look at!  I'm thankful that we have a long 16 day break for Christmas.  I'll need that much time to get the nursery/house done!

  • How far along? 29 weeks
  • Total weight gain? 14 pounds, officially.
  • Stretch marks? Still none... I'm waiting for them though, I know they will come!
  • Sleep? This week I slept a whole lot.  Tyler worked overnight at the hospital on Monday and Wednesday, so I took advantage of that by sleeping in the middle of the bed with every pillow around me.  Literally I slept with 6 pillows.  It was glorious!
  • Best moment this week? I felt really stressed on Tuesday and it had been a long day at work.  I took a bath and Tyler sat on the edge of the tub and wrote down all the things I told him that I needed to do for Mason's room.  Every time I look at my calendar for December, January, and February I get stressed out because I feel like there is much to be done!  But it was nice to have him be a voice of reason. 
  • Miss anything? Being able to lay on my stomach.
  • Movement: Tons.  I was sitting in my chair talking to a few kids and one said 'Umm... Mrs. Barnes... is Mason moving because your belly is moving." I think he was freaked out.  Then Mason put on a show, throwing my belly from left to right.  I poked Mason and he kicked back, then the kids poked him and he would kick back - they thought this game was hilarious.  Once Mason comes out he should be accustomed to loud noises because they scream and laugh when they see him moving and call him an alien ninja baby.
  • Food cravings: I haven't really craved anything weird, but I have been loving juice lately.  Grape, orange, grapefruit, anything.  I think I'm just so excited not to be diabetic that I'm celebrating by drinking juice (my friend Ashley couldn't have juice when she had GD, it was the first thing she drank after giving birth!) 
  • Anything making you queasy or sick? No.
  • Showing? Yep!
  • Gender: Boy
  • Labor signs: No
  • Belly button in or out: Out.
  • Wedding rings on or off? On.
  • Happy or moody most of the time? Happy
  • Looking forward to: My weekend in Texarkana!!  My baby shower is Saturday, I'm excited to actually get to visit with a lot of people that I've grown up with.  Every time I visit church I always feel rushed to see everyone.  Also my extended family is coming to my parents house for "Thanksmas" since we didn't get together on Thanksgiving and I won't be traveling to Dallas at Christmas.  I'm excited to see everyone, I haven't seen them since last Christmas!
  • Baby's size: Acorn squash (whatever that is...)
