10 Years & A Bump-Date

Hello bloggers!  I hope you're week is starting off well and that you all had a fabulous weekend!  We went to Raleigh, NC this weekend for my 10 year high school reunion - seriously, has it really been that long?!?!  Even though it was a whirlwind trip (we flew in Saturday morning and flew out Sunday evening), we had a great time and it was really good to see some of my family and lots of friends I hadn't seen in a while.  I didn't get a whole lot of pictures, but I did get a few.

Trying to get a shot of my fabulous shoes...I "HEART" them!

Yesterday we hit the 29 week mark as well.  OMG, that means we are starting in on week 30 which means that in a short 6 weeks Abby will be considered full-term.  Yikes!  Anyways, here's the bump-date.

How far along:  29 weeks

Stretch marks:  Still none, but boy does my belly itch.  I've heard that could mean stretch marks are coming, but I'm hoping it's untrue!

Sleep:  It's officially terrible every.single.night!  I get up at least 3 times a night to pee because Abby's head is resting on my bladder now.  And if I'm not getting up to pee, then I'm constantly turning (which is a struggle in it's own right now) from side to side because my sciatic nerve is causing my leg to either hurt so bad that I swear someone is cutting it off or go numb.  I didn't even get a good night's sleep in the super comfy king-sized bed we had at the Hilton in Raleigh this weekend.  I realize this is probably to help prepare me for all of the sleepless nights we'll have when she arrives, but I was totally hoping for at least a few more weeks of good sleep.

Best moment of the week:  Other than getting to see Abby's sweet face again on Wednesday, realizing that the H&M in Raleigh was now open and has a maternity section.  Score big! 

Belly button:  Still in although it's getting pretty flat!  FYI, if you see me in real life (or in a picture I guess) and you notice a little bump around my belly button, it's my belly button ring, not an outie just yet!

Total weight gain:  16 lbs so far = right on track!

Food cravings:  None really this week.

What I'm looking forward to:  My 1st baby shower in 3 weeks!  So freaking excited!

That's all for today!  See you guys tomorrow!

You really look great and that weight gain is impressively small! I hate that you are not sleeping well, as I remember how irritating that was!
Post pics of what you got at H&M!!
