Twenty Nine Weeks pregnant

At Twenty Nine Weeks pregnant baby weighs just over 1kg and is about the size of a butternut squash.
29 weeks pregnant bump

I feel like i am getting really big recently. We went swimming this week (so nice when pregnant) but caught sight of myself in a mirror and I looked absolutely enormous! I have had some stabbing pain just for a few seconds at a time when I move (usually at night) which I think is either round ligament pain or caused by the adhesions from my caesareans as it is just where my scar ends.

I generally feel well still although i have had the odd bout of breathlessness after walking upstairs, I don't remember this with the boys! Heartburn has reared it's ugly head a couple of times this week, thank goodness for Gaviscon!  On the plus side my previous lack of appetite has given way to wanting to eat everything!

Baby still like a good move around and the movements are getting stronger and sometimes uncomfortable. He seems to react to hands on my bump and voices now.

We have started to think about preparing for baby. I wrote a list of what we needed to buy and jobs we need to do so we will be starting to work our way through those and I need to get some bits to start my hospital bag as i'd like it done for when i am about 34/35 weeks.

That's about all for this week, nothing exciting has happened!
