29 Weeks

How far along?  29 weeks
Total weight gain/loss? Up 13 lbs.  I started out at 125 and weighed in at 138.  I'm determined to stay in the 25lb weight gain bracket.  
Stretch marks? No
Sleep? It's getting a bit easier to sleep on my side, which means I'm up in the night less.   
Best moment last week? Passing my glucose test.  I'm always so scared since diabetes runs in my family that I'm going to develop it, but levels came back normal.  Although my hemoglobin levels came back severely deficient which means I'll need to take iron pills twice a day, which means I shall never poop again.  
Movement? I'm starting to see those freaky rolls where your whole stomach roils to one side.  Kind a cool...kinda creepy.  
Food cravings? Donuts.  I've been good and have not indulged this craving yet.     
Food aversions?  chicken, onions, and tomatoes.  
Gender? Team Green
Labor signs? No and I'm looking to cook for another 11 weeks minimum.  I want to go as late as possible so I don't have to go back to work before summer vacation.  I went a little over a week early with Isabella and I'm hoping not to this time around.  
Belly button in/out? Popped and gross.
What I miss: Regular bowel movements.  I used to go at 8 am like clockwork, now if I can go 3 times a week I'm happy.  
What I am looking forward to: We just bought tickets to the Lion King on broadway to take Isabella as a Big Sister gift. 
Milestones: I can no longer see my toes when I look down

29 week  picture is forthcoming.  I actually took it with my camera and not my iPhone and now I have to upload it.
