Fourth of July and Week 29!

Tomorrow begins my 29th week of pregnancy. Things are getting pretty crazy!

Cravings: Watermelon, Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, lots of different fruits, Chipotle, french toast.
Happy Things: Hmmm, I hope it's not a bad thing, but I really can't think of much that's making me happy this week. I've had a rough week, honestly. My hormones and emotions are really up there, I'm crying at a lot of things. I think I'm just ready to have the baby and start my life as a parent. This ten month limbo is really hard to go through.
Weight Gain: Still steady, haven't gained much weight since week 27, maybe 2 lbs.
Aches and Pains: I've been having gallbladder pain recently. I can't tell if it's just a pregnancy side effect or if it's because he's been kicking me more there. His kicks are hurting way more than they used to! I've also been having some braxton hicks contraction, which is so weird. I can just feel my muscles tighten up, and sometimes it feels like very mild cramps. Also, since of course he's getting huge, it's getting hard for me to sit up in bed or get out of a chair or off the couch. I feel like a beached whale, it takes a lot of effort. It's so funny to feel that way, like I'm an old person. Same thing with bending over to pick things up.
Movement: Yeah, like I said, his kicks are crazy! Last night I felt him move around and change positions in my belly, I think he's head down right now and might stay that way, because right about now if when they get into position normally for birth and stay that way. Hopefully he's in position, cause I don't want a breach and have to get a C section. That would be awful!
Sleep: I haven't been getting the best sleep, which may also be why I'm feeling kind of negative today. I doubt that situation will improve from here on out, but that's okay. It will be worth it in the end. :)
