29 Weeks with Maternity Photos

Today marks 29 weeks! According to the bump, the baby is now the size of a squash and weighs between 2.5 and 3.8 pounds. I am now in the seventh month!

I don't have a lot to report this week except that I have now gone 8 days without taking any diclectin! Can I get a whoo hoo! In those 8 days, I have thrown up twice but it is so manageable compared to how sick I was getting before. I don't feel nauseous during the day and I actually feel like a normal human (minus the basketball sticking out of the front of me).

The baby's kicks are getting stronger and stronger and his movements are more and more visible from the outside of my tummy all the time. The little Monkey always quiets down whenever someone is trying to catch a glimpse of the movement or feel a kick though!

My belly is still growing, growing, growing. A whopping 13 inches since the beginning of this journey. I wonder just how big she's gonna get!

I haven't been sleeping so great over the past week or so and I'm not sure what the deal is with that. Some nights I find myself waking up and feeling like I am wide awake in the middle of the night.... perhaps just practice for what's to come.

This weekend when I was up north for my family reunion, I had a chance to get some maternity photos taken by my cousin's wife, Shannon. Let me tell you - this girl is talented! Although she is primarily located in Northern Ontario, she does travel to Southern Ontario quite often and would be a wise choice for family photos, maternity photos, wedding photos, newborn photos ... or any other type of photos you are interested in. Be sure to check out her website and blog and become a fan on facebook to see her work and contact her if you are interested in photos. Here are my photos:

What do y'all think? I am totally loving them!
