29 weeks with Griffin

*How far along?: 29 weeks 1 day
*How big is your baby?: a head of cabbage...around 3lbs!
*Total weight gain?: I only gained 1 pound this month! HIP HIP HOORAY!!! I told the nurse that weighed me that she was my new best friend. Up 17lbs total!
*Sex: boy!
*Maternity clothes: I have been living in tanks & work out shorts. It's a great look, really. Our pool is now open so I am about to be rocking the maternity bathing suits on a regular basis. Ladies, lock up your husbands.  
*Stretch marks: not yet & hoping it stays that way!
 *Movement: This boy moves a ton just like his brother. My doctor always has the hardest time getting him to stay still while she finds the heartbeat. He really starts flipping around late at night. I have already told Ben that we may never sleep again once he's here!
*Sleep: I think it is time for a pregnancy pillow. My stomach feels so heavy & uncomfortable when I sleep!
*Symptoms: I'm having vein issues. I have a vein on my inner thigh that is getting too large for my liking & now hurts. My OB told me to wear compression hose...in the Tennessee heat. I'm pretty sure I would die. SO, I send Ben on a mission to find something at Walgreens to help me. We'll see what he comes up with. Also? Griffin is lower than G ever was. Basically when I squat down it feels like a baby will come out. So, that's interesting!
*Best moment this week: Our beach trip! G had a blast! We also got the Baby Jogger City Select stroller with 2 seats...I love it!
*Food cravings: so random, but a sausage and cheese plate from Rendezvous in Memphis. My sweet husband made me one last night for dinner!
*Labor signs: I have BH contractions when I do too much; never had them this early with G. They are a little more intense than I would like!
*Belly button in or out: It's still flat, praise the Lord.
*What I miss: having normal veins-ha!
*What I'm looking forward to: hanging things up in Grayson's room this week so it will be finished!

You look great, momma! C is so low too that it feels like she is going to just fall out at any point.
