29 Weeks

My day started at 6 AM this morning. I worked for an hour and a half, got the kids dressed, fed and ready for school before choking down my glucose tolerence drink and leaving at 8. I raced out the door and of course I forgot my cell phone and lost the lab order. I caught Dr. N before his office opened (thankfully) and got the lab slip I needed and sat by the door of the lab and was again fortunate that the plebotomist came in early! Nothing more fun than a timed blood test!

I made it to my appointment with Dr. N afterwards and was relieved that I am still only meausuring 1.5 weeks ahead. Last time it was 2.5 and so if it jumped to 3 or 4 it meant trouble. I also lost a pound which was fine given my weight gain last month (never get on a scale after eating at Famous Dave's!). The heart rate was perfect and sounded great. Now I go every 2 weeks.

Baby can open her eyes and can turn her head towards a source of light. Last night Dayton and I were testing this but need a stronger flashlight! Her sensory organs are well developed. Her fingernails and toenails are growing and she is beginning to regulate her own temperature. The bone marrow is completely in charge of production of the red blood cells now. She weighs about 2.5 pounds and is over 15 inches long.

I made it home in time for my meeting except I had been locked out of the house as Mark and I had swithced vehicles since he was taking the kids to school. Some days it just doesn't feel like I can get ahead to save my life!

On the B Side: I did have a little foot poking up and sticking above my ribs earlier today! It was the cutest little bump!!

Hooray for the barfy glucose test! Ugh...

Love those little feet poking out. They are my favorite.

Sorry about getting locked out! You are the cutest and I miss your guts! Looking forward to Jazzy's wedding when I get to see you some! (Hopefully, if you're not too busy being a sister to the groom!)

Love you,
C

Sounds like you had a busy day... once again realizing my life isn't as busy as it seems.

Do you look up the info on your baby?

My boy is enjoying the freedom of movement and taking full advantage of it. He runs into me quite often and I wonder if he'll be a boxer or a kick boxer.
