29 Weeks

I'm at 29 weeks now with our baby girl.  She seems to be doing very well.  I can't believe that this is only the second time that we have tried to get a belly photo during this pregnancy.  We'll have to be better about pulling the camera out.

I feel her moving every day.  She reminds me of Miles in the womb.  He was very active, but I didn't feel Vivienne kick as often or as strongly.  This baby kicks frequently, during all hours of the day, and seems to have very strong legs and arms. 

I'm at the point where I'll go the OB for appointments every 2 weeks.  It's hard to believe that we're at that point already.  This pregnancy has gone by so quickly.  I'm sure that chasing two 21-month-olds has something to do with that.

I've been feeling pretty good.  I have a dull pain on top of my ribs on the right side.  I had this pain with my first pregnancy as well.  I just try to ice it a couple times a day, which seems to help a little.  I'm hoping it goes away before the end of the pregnancy (like it did with Miles and Vivienne).

I've still been fairly active.  I only ran once this past week - 4 miles with my friend, Elise.  Unfortunately, she was out of commission for the rest of the week, so I took that as an excuse to take an easy week.  I still did Pilates and yoga and mowed the lawn.  Those things all make me feel a lot better physically.  I'm hoping to still try to jog as much as I can or at least walk with the kids a few miles a day.  Before this past week, I was still jogging about 12 miles a week and walking another 4 or 5.

Can't wait to meet our baby girl in just a couple months!

  1. You look beautiful Leslie! I know what you mean - I think having two toddlers makes the pregnancy go by a lot faster than the first time. You're awesome with your jogging and lawn mowing. Enjoy the last trimester and find plenty of time to rest!
