29 Weeks and a Couple of Days

**I cheated and took this one day before 29 weeks, 
but now am posting at 29 weeks 3 days**

How far along- 29 weeks 3 days

A Little Update- As you can see Miss Lucy is making her way all over my tummy!  I know she doesn't look like she is measuring in 4 weeks ahead, but she is.  It's all about position friends.  Ever since my 12 week ultra sound or whenever the first one was, she has been sitting/laying farther back.  Therefore, every kick, punch, movement seems over exaggerated, but it's because she is really coming at me!  Right now I picture her laying in a hammock all stretched out.  I get kicked/punched at the top all the way down to the bottom.  Molly was always curled up and moved around in a ball, but Lucy likes to be more stretched out.  Hate to tell her that there is not much more room in there to stretch out!!  

Emotions- I have been way emotional, more than normal.  I think a lot of it has to do with things going on around us in ministry, life, being a mom, working, etc.  The hormones probably just elevate it all a little bit more.  I wouldn't say I am a walking basket case, I just have my moments, and then move on.  

Nesting- I am very, very anxious to set Lucy's nursery up.  I have all our 0-3 months clothes washed and ready to hang in her closet, or put in the drawers.  But that won't come for awhile.  So I am nesting in other rooms, which might be driving Eric a little crazy, but at least we are getting projects done around here!

Other than that, I have hit the uncomfortable wall, I feel huge, I can't see my feet, thighs, knees, or anything else for that matter, nor do I want to right now.  I have not been working out lately due to being tired, no time, and sheer laziness.  I am really trying to soak up every kick, punch, anything, because I know as well as some of you, this may be my last time growing a child.  I go to the doctor next Thursday for my 31 week check-up, and can't wait to see what he has to say about things.  Until then, I will be here, barefoot and pregnant eating cookies over my sink, since I can't bend down and pick the crumbs up!

Ha ha! Love the barefoot and pregnant line! You look wonderful to me and I'm glad you're trying to soak it all up. It's hard to believe it right now, but you'll be missing those days with Lucy in your belly! I think about that a lot now that we're officially "done."

Ah, you look so great! You are getting so close. Just a few more weeks. I can't believe it!

Oh honey I SOOO feel for you. As much as I love being pregnant, the end is so not pleasant. I pray the weeks pass quickly for you and you can find some comfort.

Haha, you crack me up! :) Your looking great even if you feel huge! I had someone tell me the other day "wow, you've grown!" Definitely not the best thing to tell a pregnant girl (at least with #2!). I feel so so so big this time around, and I'm only 25ish weeks. Oh well.

Eat those cookies up! ;) I know you'll be soaking it up as much as you can even though you are uncomfortable. You look so cute!

I remember those days of feeling huge, but you really do look beautiful!! Lily was one too who would stretch out with all of her might and kick stuff out of the way. She still does that when she sleeps with us! I remember trying to cherish the days being pregnant, because I was afraid she might be our last. And then at the end I was like, why won't this kid come already?!! haha!!

Enjoy your cookies :) Love ya!!

you look so great pregnant! and I remember not handling normal "ministry" stress when I was pregnant. Ministry is hard anyway, add pregnancy and your bound to have a few tears! :) hugs!

I think there has been another baby boom. Everyone is pregnant! I love babies and baby stories and I enjoy following along with all my younger blog friends and keeping up with their pregnancies.

You look great! I know the latter days of pregnancy can be hard...put there you are smiling and looking radiant.

Prayers for the days ahead as you wait for little Lucy to arrive.
