29 Weeks: Are we there yet?

Hello blogger sphere! Another week, another bump watch. Honestly I'm SO DONE being pregnant. And that's just awful! I know. I still have 11 weeks until he's due and I am doing everything I can to try to embrace it and be a happy camper, but most the time I struggle a lot.

First off, let me say, I want a full term, healthy baby. So yes, I understand I have quite a ways to go. But with the aches and pains kicking in coupled with some serious leg swelling - and of course the expanding, well everything - I just want to fast forward through the the next 11 weeks. Who can help me accomplish this. 

I honestly do try to stay positive and I love feeling help, not so gently, kick and flip flop around. I know it is a really special time between the two of us that only we will share and some women aren't able to experience themselves. But, when I pee my pants for the third time in the day because I sneeze or cough to hard I find it hard to remain blissful about the experience. That whole, your body remembers the experience and adapts more quickly the second time around is really no joke! 

On a positive note, I got the results back from my glucose test and I'm all clear. I do have low iron, which I had a sneaking suspicion of, but that's as simple as adding another round of supplements into the day, so I'm not worried. 

Hmm what else?ac started painting the nursery (and will be doing Zs room too) so look for pictures in the coming weeks. Well, maybe a little longer, we do still need nursery furniture. 

Oh! I kind of hot the first nesting phase. I completely went through everything in the nursery closet (all of Zs old clothes and stuff) and sorted through it/cleared out anything. Not going to the baby. It was quite sad looking back at all her cute, outgrown, outfits that will never be worn mm h one of my own again. But, my loss, someone else's gain I suppose. I haven't decided what I will do for sure, but probably list the really cute, to die for, stuff on an IG ship and sell the rest in small lots, or simply give them away. Who  knows. It's all sorted and out of the nursery now, so I'll just wait for the next nesting burst to decide.

Ok, this is getting long, so on to the bump and weekly Q and A! 

How far along: 29 Weeks - week 2 of not slacking, I'm on a roll (I actually cheated on the photo and its a day or 2 early (shhh don't tell)
Workouts: Still working out 4-5 days a week. I am focusing mostly on core (back/obliques) and legs lately. My arms are so weak I tem to ignore them, so I need to make a conscious effort to do them more! 
Maternity clothes: I ordered two new cardigans from an Kline maternity boutique (Heritwine Maternity) and I really love them! Plus I can wear them after too, so double awesome. I want to find some cute long shorts that don't make my highs look huge as well as a couple new workout bottoms. I HATE how I look in ally current workout clothes! :(
Sleep: I have been waking up a lot earlier. I remember this happening with Z too. But, I usually just relax in bed until Z wakes honor I need to go wake her up. 
Best moment this week: Passing my glucose test, getting the nursery cleaned out and getting some cute decor for his room m(at a STEAL of a price!)
Miss Anything: Still patterned leggings and just pants in general. Like I said, I am having issues with how I look in bottoms lately. Dang thighs!
He stilllocea a ton. I can see his movements more on the outside than I ever could with Z. It's weird and kind of gives me motion sickness.
Food cravings: Still root beer floats. Cereal. Milk. Green Grapes. Oranges (I ate 3 in one sitting the other day!!)
Anything making you queasy or sick: Chicken is touch and go again. Water still gives me terrible heartburn. 
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: On
Happy or moody most of the time: I've been a tad grumpy. Especially because random people keep asking when I'm due which just means I'm apparently HUGE enough to be comfortable assuming I'm pregnant ... Awesome. 

Looking forward to: Announcing his name! Finishing painting and decorating both rooms.
