29 Weeks

We are currently in the midst of childbirth classes! Only one left tonight. The first night we we listened to the nurses talk about all aspects of childbirth (the stages, what our partners should be doing, and other timelines of events), then got a tour of the childbirth floor. That night it kind of hit Adam that he's going to also have a big role in the labor and delivery; being the coach. He felt a little overwhelmed about that; the fact that he has to be the backbone of this process and know what to do in the heat of the moment. I don't envision being one of those women who turn into a possessed devil when I'm going through labor/delivery, though, I will probably internalize my stress. I might be totally way off though, we will have to see! Last night we talked about the actual birthing process (how the babe comes out, etc.) and medical interventions. I honestly didn't know there were so many different pain relief options.

My pregnancy app notified me this morning that the baby weighs about 2 and a half pounds and is a tad over 15 inches long. This trimester about 250 mg of calcium are deposited in baby's hardening skeleton each day. Just a little fun fact.

My to do list left for baby's arrival (some shall be done sooner than others):
Finish nursery
   Wall decor
   Stock changing table
   Order crib bedding/changing table cover
Pack hospital bag
Discuss birth plan with doctor. (Example of a birth plan found here.)
Purchase all items left off of registry

Still no cravings, but my favorite foods right now are pears, apples, grilled cheese with tomato soup, and of course, sweets. Also no swelling anywhere, and I suspect weight gain is up a pound from last week, which should put me at +21-22 pounds.

My birthday is this Saturday and Adam and I are going to this fancy Italian restaurant I've been wanting to go to. December is going to be full of holiday parties, pot lucks, and baby showers. Bring it on!
