29 Weeks

How far along:  29 weeks
Gender:  Girl
Belly button in or out: Out.
Maternity clothes:  Definitely growing out of most sweatshirts I sleep in, so I've moved onto Tyler's closet.
Stretch marks: None yet. 
Sleep: For the most part, sleep is still good.  I've been falling asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow.
Best moment this week: Coming home to a painted nursery today! 
Miss anything:  At my appointment this week, my doctor asked me how it felt to be the biggest I've ever been. I'm pretty sure I fake laughed and said something like "oh it definitely feels different".  I felt like saying 1.) lady, we passed that mark months ago, and 2.) like I can't wait to be back to my "normal" self.   Let's just say I'm looking forward to having Ellie in my arms and out of my belly. :) 
Movement:  Lots of knees, elbows, hands + feet this week.
Cravings:  I feel like I just appreciate food more in general these days... strawberries, bananas, yogurt, waffles, fried chicken, you name it. ;)
Queasy or sick:  Same as last week. Emphasis on the tiredness. And definitely starting to get more uncomfortable in general.
Looking forward to:  Maternity leave.

Here are some pics of the nursery!

The before color...

Little helpers.

And the after.

 The cats feel the need to follow us everywhere, so they're in every picture.

It's hard to get a good picture, but we are really happy with the color!  It makes the room feel much brighter.  If we were planning on staying in this house a while, I'd probably want to paint the entire house (and I think Tyler would actually agree!)

On another note, how cute is this teething necklace?  It actually looks like a "real" necklace, is bite-proof and dishwasher safe.  I thought it was such a cool idea, I had to pick one out!  My only fear is that she will think she can chew on any necklace I wear, but I'm pretty sure she will regardless. :)
