29 weeks

From earlier this week:

Somehow in the past couple of weeks I feel as though I've managed to double in size.  A couple of friends and students' parents have commented, "The baby has really grown in the past week!", which is a nice way of saying, "Been eating a lot lately?", or "How are you still bearing your own weight?!", or "Excuse me, I momentarily mistook you for a school bus."

Yes, word to the wise: commenting on the baby's size is allowed.  Blame it all on the baby!

It's probably not a good sign that, with 2+ more months to go, I'm already feeling like there can't possibly be much more growing room for this little girl within my torso.  

A picture with the pajama-clad little lady who's been a little under the weather and subsequently a little on the unhappy side this week:

Dear little one, 
I can't really decide if night times are the best part of my day, or the worst.  On the one hand, I spend pretty much all day every day looking forward to the time when I can go to bed.  (That's the third trimester in a nutshell for you!)  On the other hand, I have a lot of pain in my hips at night, and have a hard time getting comfortable.  Not to mention, it's already getting hard to roll over from side to side in the middle of the night.  What I definitely love, though, is feeling you start to wriggle around once I'm lying still.  My bedtime seems to be your cue to make your presence known one last time each night.  My midwives say you are healthy and right on track for growth!  Aaaaand, for the time being at least, you're head down and hanging out just where we want you.  Good job, little girl!
