Sooooo pregnant

So. I'm really pregnant. No, I mean, really, really, really pregnant. Like its an effort to get out of the car when its on an incline, Its hard to breathe when I'm laying on my back, pregnant. Its pretty huge, and my "its" i mean my belly. I'm 29 weeks.

Gumbo is spending a lot of time moving around, mostly stretching and pushing on both sides. I wish he would get it in his head to rotate, he's in a breech position still. He also could fold in half, I think he is laying flat in there, or as flat as possible. He was 1.5 lbs two weeks ago, but now he's supposed to be 3 lbs. To reflect this change, I was crazy hungry for the last two days.

Oh! another new thing for me, is that I am actually craving things. It started Wednesday night, I was driving my car and all of a sudden, I had this incredible urge for Cup O Noodle. I had to have it, so I stopped at 7-11 and got one. It was delicious! Then the next day, Tom picked me up from the metro and I convinced him that Taco Bell would be the perfect dinner - and it was. Besides that junk, I still desire protein, fruit, and veg - the true building blocks of life. =)

In other news, we registered this weekend. We registered at both Target and on It was a weird choice to do Amazon, but there were some items that were only sold at specific stores, so I had registered for one item at REI, and one item at an online breastfeeding store, then I realized that all of the items were on, so I un-registered at REI and breastfeeding store, and registered at Amazon instead.

We had a great Thanksgiving with Tom's brother and sister and her fam. I will post some pics later. There seems to be a problem with picture posting right now.
Love, V
