29 weeks (and 3 days)

We went in for the ultrasound today.  Our baby is a very healthy size.  They have estimated that she weighs about 3.5 pounds right now.  She is on the large side, but not extremely big.  Hopefully she won't get too big.  I'm thinking she may end up in the 8 pound range.  We'll see.  I guess it all depends on how early I deliver too.  Everything else looks good.  I had the sonographer confirm that she is still a girl.  She is definitely still a girl. :)

My blood pressure is still on the low side, so that's good.  It's all just a waiting game now.  I'm hoping it goes very quickly.  I feel like I'm getting bigger by the day.  My large scrubs are definitely feeling smaller these days.  I think they may only last a couple more weeks.  I had hoped they would last the duration of my pregnancy, but that seems highly unlikely now.  I really don't want to go buy bigger ones just to wear for a few weeks.  I will wear these for as long as possible, and then make a decision on what to do.  My dear supportive husband suggested I go to Walmart and buy a tarp and some twine.  Gotta love him!

I'm starting to feel tired again.  I was exhausted all the time early in the pregnancy, and then my energy came back for several weeks.  Now, I'm getting really big and its harder to get around and I'm having a hard time keeping up my energy toward the end of the day.  I've been trying really hard to keep up with the exercise the last couple of weeks though.  Hopefully it will help at the end.

My next appointment is in 2 weeks, the same day several of my family members are flying into town for my baby shower.  I'm really excited for it!  :)
