Welcome! My name is Mrs.G and I started this blog so people could share in my mis-adventures in wedding planning. I married my southern gentleman on September 6th, 2009. Throughout our courtship I became enamored with everything southern and desperately want to become a steel magnolia.

29 Weeks... I some how got a week behind in posting

How far along? 29 Weeks, 11 to go.
 The baby is as big as: Butternut squash 
 Maternity clothes? Yep and thankfully, like I had predicted, my flowy spring and summer is helping me change it up a bit. I was getting a little bored of the same 6 tops every week. 
Stretch marks? nope, but the surgery scar I have right under my bra line on my abdomen is starting to feel the pull.  Baby girl is making her way up in to my abdomen and as my doc said could happen, my scars can stretch...yay. 
How I am feeling:  not so great. I have been having a lot of sciatic pain this week, sitting for 8 hours is rough and then when I get home the thought of sitting on the sofa sounds like torture so I usually go upstairs and stretch out.  
Best moment this week?: Husband not passing out seeing his first body organ. 
Movement?: Lots of big thuds in there. My mom said she could see how she was laying as I was trying to get comfortable on the couch, she said her butt must have been sticking straight up because my stomach was wonky. 
Food cravings?: ribs. I have been watching man vs. food and the always stops at a rib place, so I made husband make me ribs... I have to stop saying ribs, my mouth is watering at it is only 7:18 am. 
Gender?:  GIRL!
Labor Signs?: nope, but a couple times this week I actually thought to myself " I think I am going to start my period" then had to quickly remind myself that I won't be having one of those (hopefully) for a while.  I don't think it was BH, I think it was just my body adjusting to the growth but being in the third trimester they throw out Braxton Hicks all the time. 
Belly Button in or out?:innie, but I am seeing more and more of it these days. 
What I miss: being able to sit anyway I want. I am a feet crosser, I hate when my feet just dangle there and being vertically challenged that happens a lot. But getting bigger and bigger by the day is impeding my feet/leg crossing. 
What I am looking forward to: This may sound lame but I look forward to our child birthing class every week.  I really like Tayna, and even though the curriculum can get a little preachy about how horrible a hospital birth can be, for the most part I really like it. I feel like we are actually doing SOMETHING other than buying stuff for her to prepare. 
Weekly Wisdom: DRINK YOUR WATER! My feet are still mildly swelling and I have checked my BP and everything there is fine so I know not drinking enough water is more than likely the culprit. BAD MRS.G! 
 Milestones: We got the crib mattress and some cute little sleepers thanks to my Dad and Step-mom. I walked past the nursery and husband was just standing in there looking at the crib and we both shared a mini freak out moment.
