As of today, we have officially hit the 29th week in pregnancy. How awesome is that?
Only 11 weeks until Charlotte's due date and Christmas. Only 10 weeks and 3 days until she should make her appearance. Hopefully, 11 weeks from today we'll be at home celebrating Christmas morning with three little ones under the tree.
I haven't really had a lot of new symptoms. I can feel her twist, kick, jump and punch during the day. Her movements are a little slower, a little stronger and a little less frequent. You can make out hands and feet a little more clearly.
Heartburn is still there. Slowly getting worse. I'm fortunate that I'm carrying her so much lower than I did Samantha. I'm sure if she was any higher, the heartburn would be even worse and then I might just cry several times throughout the day. It does make me less excited about eating a lot of yummy food, but, my weight gain probably appreciates that.
I am up about 30 lbs. With Kaitlyn I only gained 25. But, she was also only 7 lbs and 3 oz, I was younger, it was my most active pregnancy and I wasn't hungry a lot of the time. With Matthew I gained a little over 50 and with Samantha I gained 40. Considering I typically stop gaining and start losing around 36-37 weeks, I think I'll end up right under 40. Maybe even less, one of the side effects of the p17 injections is increased hunger and weight gain. This time I will stop them two weeks sooner. Time will tell.
After today, I have 5 more p17 injections. Then, I get one week where I shouldn't have to visit the doctor at all: week 35. After that, I'll go back to every week. I bet my gas tank will like that...
