29 weeks

I went to the doctor the other day and found out that I gained 8 pounds in 4 weeks and am measuring 4 cm bigger than I should at 29 weeks.  The doctor said I should be exercising more and scheduled another ultrasound to see if I have extra fluid, the baby is just really big, or if he was positioned weird.  It made me a little nervous and explained why I have been so uncomfortable, but I'm excited to be able to see the baby again.  I may get some really cool pictures since he's so much bigger now.  And since the appointment, I have been making sure I'm not eating a ton of fatty or sugary foods and have been doing my prenatal yoga/walking everyday.  Hopefully it was just a growth spurt.


  1. hehe, I got in trouble for gaining too much weight too! But go figure I'm measuring 3 weeks small...who knows ;). I'm so conscious of it now. You look beautiful!

    I was measuring about 3 wks ahead most of my pregnancy for both my was 8lbs 14oz and 5 days early the other 8lbs 12oz and 10 days early and both 22inches long so maybe just a big boy!! OR you will go early!!
    You look beautiful and I love reading your posts!

  3. Sarah,

    I have friends who have gained 50 pounds with their pregnancies and somehow managed to lose all that weight soon after.

    You look good to me! You are probably just fine, but the ultrasound will make you feel better.

    I am almost 26 weeks and quite large. I guess that's the way these things go.

    You are small so Baby is going to take up a lot of you. :-)

    Take care,

  4. Sarah, you look great! but we will pray that God keeps you in His perfect peace and protects little Baby Scripture.
