Sqaush It!

This week, Carson is the size of a squash.  Either an Acorn Squash (the Bump) or a Butternut Squash (Baby Center), take your pick!  This post reminds me of how some people (who shall remain nameless) pronounce squash like "squaRsh".  Drives me crazy and makes me giggle at the same time!  I'm officially 29 weeks and time is still flying!  According to the Bump, Carson should now be measuring 15.2-16.7 inches in length (head to heel) and he should weigh 2.5-3.8lbs.  That seems like a LOT, how crazy!

How far along? 29 weeks and I can't believe it!
Total weight gain: I promise to update you next week after my appointment on March 12....hopefully I won't be depressed ;)
Maternity clothes? Honestly, it's not like I can stop wearing them at this point!  I still wear a lot of non-maternity tops as well as pre-pregnancy PJ pants and yoga pants, but work pants & jeans MUST be maternity! (scroll down for my newest bump pic!)
Stretch marks? no
Sleep: I could use some more!  I'm starting to get tired again but it's not anywhere near as bad as my first trimester!  I can make it through the days still, I just get very sleepy :)
Best moment this week:  I finally felt Carson get the hiccups!!  I've been dying to feel this and I finally did other day and Nick was able to feel, too!  Also, we got our recliner!!!!
Miss Anything? I realize what I miss....having a TAN!  This warmer weather around Ohio is making me feel summery and PALE!
Movement: As I said already, I like making Carson move around in there :)  He isn't quite as active, but he has little hyper outbursts at random! 
Food cravings:  Anything OREO!  We currently have regular Oreos, "golden" Oreos (the Walmart brand is actually decent!), cookies'n'cream frozen yogurt, etc.  I LOVE Oreo stuff lately! :)
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!
Gender: Baby BOY Carson!
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms:  I've had some cramping this past week.  A few times it was up near my ribs on my right side and no matter how I sat, I could not make it feel better!  Another time I woke up in the middle of the night with really bad tightness/cramping in my back and lower left side.  I still can't complain though!
Belly Button in or out? still an innie and I'm still nervous....!
Wedding rings on or off? on and loose!
Happy or Moody most of the time: happy as a clam!  (I hate that saying....)
Looking forward to:  NEXT WEEK!  Monday I have a doctor appt which will mean I now get to see Dr. G every 2 weeks instead of every 5 (thank goodness)!  Wednesday we're doing the maternity tour at our hospital.  Saturday we're getting an elective 3d ultrasound so we can see our adorable baby boy's been WAY too long!  Can't wait!

Drum roll is what you've all been waiting for.  The new BUMP shot!  This week I'm going to spoil you.  Not only do you get my traditional bathroom shot but also a REAL photo from a camera taken by someone other than myself!  Whoa.  Don't expect that every week! ;)

Can you tell how my bump gets bigger throughout the day?!  The first two pics were taken around 8am yesterday and the 3rd pic was taken around 5pm!
