Hump Day, Bump Day!

Oy...just one week shy of 30, and I'm so excited about it I could just pee myself. Well, let's be honest - that's something that's statistically very likely to happen, anyway.

Here's the bump-a-lump-a-deliciousness at Week 29. My bellybutton is thisclose to being totally flat. I swear it's like the 9th Wonder of the World. Seriously, my belly button was so deep pre-prego that it nearly touched my spine (Remember this post?). Pregnancy does fascinatingly disgusting things to the body, that's for sure!

Sorry it's kind of a crappy picture. I left the camera in the car last night and since it's balls cold here in Michigan it didn't have time to unfog before we had to leave for work. So, Joe's camera phone did the trick...sort of.

"Congratulations, Kristi! You're 29 Weeks Pregnant. Your baby measures about 10.4 inches from crown to rump, or a total length of about 16.7 inches from head to toe, and weighs about 2.7 pounds. At this stage a fetus' eyes are almost always blue and can distinguish bright sunlight or artificial light through the wall of the uterus. Baby is performing fewer acrobatics as conditions in the womb have become cramped now that he is getting bigger. Your uterus is about 3.5 to 4 inches above your navel. Weight gain is probably between 19 and 25 pounds. If born now, your baby could probably survive outside the womb -- although in a neonatal intensive-care unit. As your due date approaches, you may be feeling relieved and excited, or anxious about motherhood, your baby's health, and labor and delivery."

Eep! I'm certainly feeling all of those emotions, though I'm quite sure they forgot that I might also be feeling: as ginormous as a whale; as unbalanced as a Weeble Wooble; as thirsty as a camel; as hungry as Joey Chestnut (you know, that championship hot dog eater guy); and as forgetful as a...well, I forget.

Butbutbut there are some very happy emotions, too! We put together the crib and changing table on Super Bowl Sunday (yes, I have the most awesome hubby, ever) and I ordered the custom wall graphic for above WIP's crib. I simply cannot wait to get it all together - and promise to post more pics when the room is complete.

I'm also totally unstoppable at stores. Target's $1 section? Yeah, I own ALL the baby clothes/socks from that collection. I am also quite certain that I've purchased his entire winter wardrobe at no less than 80% off from all sorts of retailers. Mom on a mission for a bargain...that's me!
