Bumpdate Week 29

How far along? 29 weeks! :)

Weight Gain: 4 pounds

Sleep? I have been falling asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow lately. I'm still waking up once in the middle of the night thinking I might die if I don't pee.

Challenges this week: Nothing comes to mind.

Best moment this week: Yesterday was our 1st anniversary! After church we packed a picnic and Jake drove us to a surprise location. We drove the La Sal Loop to Lake Oowah, by far my new favorite spot! It was more than 20 degrees cooler than Moab and I had the best company :) We read love letters--that we prepared for each other beforehand-- reflecting on our last year together. Our cheeks hurt from smiling and laughing at the memories shared... And of course I teared up from the sweet things he had written. It was the perfect day.

Weird pregnancy moment: This is more of an exciting moment than a weird one. Strangers are noticing that I'm pregnant now (it actually makes me happy to know that I LOOK pregnant now) and they'll ask me when I'm due and congratulate me.

Movement: Baby Z is still my little wiggle worm. I love feeling him move, but I love when Jake can feel him move even more! It still doesn't feel real that we're having a baby! I'm assuming it won't feel "real" until I'm actually in labor.

Food cravings: A slice of grandma sycamore bread with butter and Mom's canned peach jam (too good for words).

Anything making you queasy? I've been pretty good with foods and smells this week.

Symptoms: I started taking magnesium glycinate again this past week and that's helped dramatically with leg cramps and also Braxton hicks contractions when I'm active.

What are you looking forward to? My birthday this weekend!! I want to grill some hamburgers or kabobs at Lake Oowah with Jake and maybe some Dutch oven peach cobbler! The Cluffs have a peach tree in their yard and let us pick as many as we like... It's been peach heaven the last week :)
