General update: Super hard to believe this is my last week in the 20s! It feels like just yesterday I was 20 weeks and had a million more weeks to go. This week is my birthday so I am eating some good food! Lol.

How far along?: 29 weeks.

Total weight gain: 22 lbs. I didn't gain much weight this week but I feel even larger every week!

How I'm feeling: Tired. So tired. Also, excited that it's my birthday! Can't believe I'll be 23 and Steven will be 25 next month.

How I'm changing: So I have been having a belly for a while now, but wow, my belly is sticking straight out! My big tshirts that I normally sleep in are form fitting now.

What I'm eating: I eat healthy about 75% of the day. The other 25% percent is me eating whatever I want. Just in moderation.

Movement: Last week Evelyn was kicking a lot on my left hand side, I thought it would be fun to barely press in and feel her kick even harder, I felt an arm or a leg, (I know she's head down but I have a little gymnastics baby apparently), ROLL over my hand. It startled me because I had just been feeling kicks. The roll of a little arm or leg was crazy! 

Cravings: Lemonade. I want sour again! 

Missing anything?: I miss her. I want to hold her, kiss her and watch her grow so badly. I've never met her but I feel like I miss her already.  

Favorite moment: Driving to Pine, Idaho. It was beautiful and I loved all the trees and rivers.

Looking forward to: A four day weekend this week! Ready to have Steven off for a few days.

General update: Celebrated my birthday in Boise this weekend and saw Evelyn in 3D/4D. It was the coolest experiance. I think she looks a lot like Steven but Steven thinks she looks a lot like me, lol. Then we went to Texas Roadhouse. This coming weekend we plan to go camping. With the smoke from the fires and Steven's job, we decided to wait a week to camp.

How far along?: 28 weeks.

Total weight gain: 21 lbs. It's really weird to get on the scale and see such a high number. I have never weighed more than about 118 lbs my whole life and for it to get into the 130s is scary, but I know I'm going at a healthy rate and people still consider me 'small' for my size.

How I'm feeling: The tiredness and exhaustion hasn't changed. I've been having hot flashes at night, as well as acid reflux and having to pee every hour or two. Makes for an interesting night. I feel bad for waking Steven up when I know he has work the next day.

How I'm changing: I think now that I'm in the third trimester, I know that she'll be here so soon. Seeing her in 3D made it a lot more real to me too. Can't believe in less than three months or so I'll have my very own little human.

What I'm eating: This was a bad week healthy wise. I got chocolate donuts for the weekend as well as just junking around in between meals. Some healthy and some not so healthy. Hopefully this week I can change that!

Movement: She's gets hiccups at least once a day and is a little kicker like always. She was so calm when we went and got a 3D ultrasound and looked so sleepy and relaxed. 

Cravings: Give me all da chocolate. Also, lemonade always sounds like a good idea.

Missing anything?: I tried on a dress at Rue 21 this week because I thought it was a nice maxi to take some maternity photos in. I got a size medium because I'm usually a small. I couldn't get it past these giant boobs! It was so tight and all though I loooove this belly, it's hard to have your body change so much. Pregnancy is weird. 

Favorite moment: Seeing our sweet girl in 3D. :)

Looking forward to: Our camping trip this weekend. I will at least make sure to take some maternity photos!

General update: This week I feel completely drained. I could sleep for nine hours a night and still need a nap during the day. (Which I have been taking those naps)

How far along?: 27 weeks 

Total weight gain: 19 lbs.

How I'm feeling: Like I said before. SOOOO tired!

How I'm changing: I know that it's not too much longer until she'll be here and I've been more interested in documenting my pregnancy. Which means a lot of pictures!

What I'm eating: Since I've been so tired lately I haven't been cooking that much. Which means a quick sandwich or something else that's super easy is the way to go.

Movement: Lots of kicks and hiccups. She was head down at my last ultrasound which where her head and arms are is where I normally feel the most movement. Every now and then I'll get a strong kick and it startles me. 

Cravings: I've been wanting Jack In The Box all week. No, I haven't caved. Yet. 

Missing anything?: I miss the short bursts of energy that I had a few weeks ago. I want to do a lot of things around the house and have a few more nursery projects I want to do. Hoping my energy kicks back up soon. 

Favorite moment: Probably taking some photos with Steven. I know a lot of husbands dread taking pictures but he knows how much I love to look back on them and that's why we definitely have a fair share of photos together. I plan to keep just as many when Evie gets here.

Looking forward to: Our camping trip! We leave this Friday. I've already started making a list of things I need to pick up at the store and what all to pack. I'm also getting a few ideas of other camping areas since it looks like the fires are still going pretty strong.
