Pregnancy Update: 29 Weeks

Another week has passed, which means we are one more week closer to meeting Elizabeth. I honestly cannot wait! I'm starting to feel a little anxious. I'm sure that's totally normal, right?

We started work on the nursery! If you dont follow me on Instagram.... You should. I posted a sneak peek preview of the paint color we decided on. You might be surprised. We are about halfway through painting. I can't wait to finish so we can get to the fun stuff!

Twenty two days until the baby shower. I'm so excited!!! I can't wait to celebrate Elizabeth with my family. Plus, let's be real. Baby gifts are awesome.

Symptoms: heartburn is still a thing unfortunately. As well as nausea. Yeah. That's back. Usually in the mornings, sometimes at night. I'm not thrilled. Contractions have slowed down, but baby is kicking with serious force these days.

Cravings: Chili Spaghetti. Lasagna. Ahhhhh. All the pasta. I've had to control myself this week, as those dishes tend to go straight to my backside. But I'm not gonna even play like I didn't make a special trip to Gold Star for a three way.

Mood: Mood swings are becoming a thing again. I'm happy, I'm crying, I'm angry. All within an hour time span. I'm sure I'm a blast to live with. I lack patience completely at this point. I just keep telling myself eleven more weeks.

I've been lacking motivation to do much of anything other than clean my house lately. Which is probably a reason why this post is going up late. I am just so tired all the time. I can sleep six hours or eleven and I'm still ready for a nap. The weather isn't helping... Sunshine and sixty one day. Snowing the next. Thanks Ohio.

I believe that's it for this pregnancy update. Other than her insane karate like movement, not much has happened this week. As always, Thank you so so so so much for reading. I appreciate you all so much! You're awesome! 


  1. With my first, my contractions started around 20 weeks and just kept on going through until labor (BUT I had a VERY quick labor, so I'm not complaining) and this time it's been since 15 weeks. So I feel you on that!

  2. Yay! You are almost in the final stretch!
