29 Weeks–11 to Go!

29 Weeks and tired.  Not to have a negative confession because I am SO thankful that this pregnancy has been uneventful and smooth.  My energy level has plummeted this week.  Now that may be due to a toddler struggling with allergies and some late nights.  Who knows. 

Mr. baby man is kicking a lot.  I am so thankful for this.  It’s so comforting to feel my baby move.  I don’t remember kicks being painful at all with Henry but at times they are with this one.  Still a great feeling!

Here’s what baby center says:

Your baby now weighs about 2 1/2 pounds (like a butternut squash) and is a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel. His muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and his head is growing bigger to make room for his developing brain. To meet his increasing nutritional demands, you'll need plenty of protein, vitamins C, folic acid, and iron. And because his bones are soaking up lots of calcium, be sure to drink your milk (or find another good source of calcium, such as cheese, yogurt, or enriched orange juice). This trimester, about 250 milligrams of calcium are deposited in your baby's hardening skeleton each day.
