Week 29 Breakdown

How Far Along: 29 weeks and 5 days

Size of Baby: 15 inches  and 2 1/2 lbs

Gender: BOY! Archer "we still don't have a middle name" Price

Movement: He is a mover and a shaker until someone other than Cody wants to feel him move. He is most active at night and early mornings when I'm waking up for work. He is also pretty active while I'm sitting at my desk. I'm guess he hates being scrunched up while I sit. 

Weight Gain: 22 lbs

Maternity Clothes:I bought a few pairs of pants the other day from Buy Buy Baby. They were petites so I was so excited. The weather has cooled down drastically so I have now pulled out the sweaters that I've inherited. It's like a new wardrobe all over again. 

Sleep Habits: I still hate sleeping on my side. I started propping myself up so I can sleep on my back, but I get nervous so I eventually end up on my side. 

Cravings/Aversions: Still nothing really. I am eating a lot of fruit and almonds. I started adding  carrots into my daily snack mix. 

Emotions: Nothing out of the ordinary lately. 

Symptoms: Pain when I'm trying to stretch out while in the bed or when I'm leaning over seems to be pretty constant. Night before last, I had my first bout of cramps in my abdomen. It scared me since it's the first time I've felt it. Archer was going crazy since I'm sure he was scrunched in there. I've started to feel "heavy" which is a new feeling. It's like wearing a backpack on my stomach filled with my college textbooks. My hands and feet are still swollen. 

Weddings rings on/off: Off

What I Miss: Sleeping on my back, shaving my legs comfortably and having energy

What I'm Looking Forward To: Maternity photos, hanging art in Archer's room and seeing what the next few weeks hold. 

Baby Shower #1 - Laurel, MS

We were so blessed this last weekend in Mississippi. My friend Amy, along with my mom and two aunts threw me a shower in Laurel. We got way more than we expected. It was nice to spend some time with Amy and my friend Brittney that is also pregnant. I always see family when I'm home, but I don't always get to see my friends so that was really nice to have them there.

Belly buddies - Mindy and Archer

My Aunt Pam and the ladies at Sugarbakers made me this awesome cake!

Week 27 Breakdown

Life has been extremely busy the past 5 weeks and I have seriously slacked off on posting. Here's a few photos to recap...

Cody and I were invited to an employee dinner at work that was in the President's box at the stadium. We had a great time and met some really nice people! The food was pretty wonderful (and free!), too! 
We headed to one of our favorite places a two weeks ago... Lookout Mountain! It was Uncle Daryl's birthday weekend and of course we had our annual Darylpalooza or Hunkerdown. There were so many people there. 
Here's a 25 week photo: (I had just eaten a lot of watermelon so I was a little more bloated than normal!)

The past week we celebrated going into the double digits! 89 days from now, we'll be meeting our little baby boy! (or sooner!)

Gam is putting together a few details for Archer's room. She made these out of pallets she had lying around.

And here's this weeks official update

How Far Along: 27 weeks and 3 days

Size of Baby: 14 1/2 inches 

Gender: BOY! Archer "we still don't have a middle name" Price

Movement: He obviously moves the most after I eat but he seems to be slowing down a little compared to before. I still get some good jabs every now and then. He is still most active right before I go to bed. 

Weight Gain: 15.5 lbs

Maternity Clothes:I'm super thankful the weather is cooling off. I have a lot of long sleeve shirts to wear so I'm excited to get into those. Pants will always be an issue, but I got a few new pairs to wear so I'm making it work.

Sleep Habits: Well, I kind of hate sleeping on my side. I do find myself rolling onto my back a lot, but last week I woke up screaming b/c I got a cramp in my left calf muscle that I thought was going to fall off. It was so painful. My leg hurt for the rest of the week. 

Cravings/Aversions: Still nothing really. I like eating cold foods like fruit. I am drinking a lot of water as usual. I have been drinking more soda and tea which isn't normal and I'm trying to stop that. A cold coke is a wonderful thing when I don't get any sleep though. 

Emotions: The past few weeks have been a little stressful at work and the lack of sleep has caused a couple of breakdowns. On Saturday, I was super snappy with Cody and then immediately cried about it. I just wanted to be held like a baby. It was so silly and I recognized it was just hormones and lack of sleep, but couldn't control it. I finally just quit crying and got out of the house. 

Symptoms: Pain on my right side a little. I've been getting  a little dizzy before I eat and/or if I'm running around a lot doing work. I'm having to really make sure I'm keeping my blood sugar up. My feet and hands are still a little swollen. 

Weddings rings on/off: Off

What I Miss: Sleeping on my back! 

What I'm Looking Forward To: Decorating Archer's room and going home in a few weeks!
