Size of Baby: 3.75 pounds (was 4.1 last week though according to the ultrasound so I guess these meansurements are totally off now) and 16.7 inches long.
Food Size (According to my e-mail from BabyCenter.com): A large jicama
Total Weight Gain: 29 pounds
Maternity Clothes: It is what it is... just squeezing into whatever is around. So not buying stuff right now.
Gender: It's a BOY! Landon Brennan Lutz
Movement: yes! gosh it's painful... except at night when it's just insane how much he moves!! That is when it's somewhat enjoyable to sit and feel. During the day though it's just lots of pain from it all.
Food Cravings: Nope
Labor Signs: negative... lots of braxton hicks all day every day, but I think we still have quite a few more weeks until I'll start to feel the real thing.
How’s Ryder Handling It: Ya know he's really coming around lately. He's very proud of talk about "baby brother" or "baby Landon". He helped me build the crib this week and is very excited for baby Landon to sleep in it. He takes his baby Landon doll and changes his diaper every day. It's so cute how he lifts legs for me to put the diaper on. He knows that Landon is going to come "out of da belly at the hospital". He thinks this is cool because our doctors office is attached to the hospital, and he likes riding in the glass elevator with Daddy.
What is the same/different as the last time:
Same: Hip pain, ready for it to be over, anticipation
Different: Pressure, pain in the ribs
Symptoms: The same as last week wit the hip pain, pressure, braxton hicks, and honeslty i'm just getting exhausted. I'm huge!
Best Moment This Week: ummm.... nothing really crazy this week.
What I Am Looking Forward To: My sweet friend Tricia is throwing Landon and I a little baby shower this weekend with a couple of the baseball girls on Sunday. I can't wait to spend some time with the girls and enjoy a day all for the little man :)
Doctors Appointment: Posting this a little late because we had a rough afternoon after our appointment yesterday which made me not finish it up to get it posted. Anyhow... the appointment went good. Landon and I are both still healthy and right on track. They said his weight according to the ultrasound put him in the 79th percentile. They said they don't pay much attention unless it's in the 90th percentile. We had lots more talk about the hip pain. They are interested in doing xrays to check things out and are supposed to be having the physical therapy place call me today to get things set up. I'm not exactly sold on the physical therapy thing. I feel like it always causes more pain before it gets better and given such a short period of time it seems pointless, but they were pretty insistent it would help a lot. We'll see what they say when they call. Two more weeks and we'll be back again...
