How far along: 29 weeks + 4 days  

Days until due date: 72 days (!!)

Baby's development: Baby boy is now about 38cm from the crown of his head to his heels and weighs between 2.5lb and 3.5lbs! He's not only fattening up by the day but moving tonnes too! His brain, which was once smooth, is gaining new folds and grooves as it becomes more complex and his bones continue to harden.

My bump: Big and firm! I absolutely love having a nice round tummy and I don't think i've ever felt so comfortable in my body. My belly button however is still super weird... it's "technically" in but does being pretty much flat really count as in? It slightly protrudes 

Stretch marks? Nothing yet! I've still been oiling my tummy daily which is definitely helping the bigger I get. 

Cravings: I've said this before but does ALL of the food count? Since being back home and being able to eat all the food i've missed over the last 9 months i've certainly been, well, "enjoying" them more than I maybe should be. 

Sleep: Surprisingly my sleep has been quite good lately! I'm finally used to sleeping on my side and apart from the few toilet trips in the night i've been sleeping through from about 11pm when I go to bed till about 7am when we get up. 

Best moment this week: Having quite a few members of our family feel our baby boy kick! It's so nice to share something so magical with them all and seeing their faces when it happens is priceless. Another awesome moment this week was receiving the Jem + Bea changing bag that I won in an instagram competition! Review coming soon but it's pictured above... gotta take it out and test it before he arrives right?

Worst moment this week: The relentless heartburn. All I have to say about it is that it's tiresome, boring and fucking uncomfortable.

Miss anything? Being able to move around quickly, easily and without making involuntary grunting noises. I've become quite the slow walker which drives me crazy.

Mood: Settled and happy in our new home but mostly crazy excited to meet our little boy.
