Mommy Mondays: 29 weeks

I've started my bi-monthly apointments!  Every 2 weeks I get to see my doctor and check on this kid.   This is both fun in that I don't have to wait as long between appointments, but seriously, it's not really conducive to my work schedule right now.

This week's appointment consisted of a weigh in (lost a pound), blood pressure reading (higher than last time) which are evidence of my higher stress level right now.  Then just going over my test results from the Glucose Tolerance Test.  Next came my fundal height measurement, which is when they measure the uterus to see if it corresponds with the number of weeks pregnant you are.  Mine is always right on track.  Then comes the fun part, the heartbeat.  Sometimes it takes a minute or so to find it, but I'm not as worried at that stage since I can feel this little one moving all over the place.Oppo-baby's heartbeat is always so very fast!  This week it was 160/158!

That's it.  Just a quick little checkup that I get to look forward to twice a month for the next month...then it moves to every week.  EEK!

Total weight gain/loss: +18

Next Appointment: April 10
Maternity clothes? Mixed this week.  I've been in depositions all week, so I have at least a week's work of "court appropriate" clothes that work...this week.
Stretch marks: nada.
Sleep: Still having big problems with sleeping in the morning.  I'm waking several times a night due to kicking.  And I have trouble getting back to sleep.
Best moment this week: Going out with the girls on Thursday night.
Movement: Yes.  Thatboy is starting to get nervous.  He's worried this kid is going to be crazy.  Between the super high heart rate, the constant movement that wakes me up, and the crazy movement that makes my stomach goes in waves, this kid never slows down.
Food cravings: Nothing
Food aversions: Nothing
Gender: Not finding out
Belly Button in or out: In.  But it never popped last time, so I'm not expecting it to this time.
What I miss: sleep - I'm actually really looking forward to having this baby and life being less stressful!
What I am looking forward to:  Next weekend.
Contractions: None this week
 Milestones: 
- The outer layer of the brain has started developing into six distinct layers.
- Bi-monthly appointments
