29 weeks

Well today marks our little boy reaching 29 weeks old. 
I had my glucose test this week and passed with flying colors. I also had my full blood panel again and everything looks great! 
I had my midwife appointment yesterday and everything else looks great. We love our midwife. We had put together a rough draft of our birth plan and went over it with her and asked tons of questions and she just really put our minds at ease. She showed me how to feel around my big belly to find little boy's bum, and she said I should periodically "chase him around", basically poke him to get him to move. It is pretty cute to play with him. She did say that he is breach right now, but that's perfectly normal, as long as he flips in the next 6 weeks, which I'm sure he will :)
I am feeling good. My feet have started to swell a bit, but i can still wear my rings during the day. I'm up about 18 pounds, and in feeling it! Sleeping is also getting a bit difficult. I'm trying my hardest to sleep just on my left side, but I miss my stomach so bad!
I'm also loving my bike right now, I go super slow, and Jared is so paranoid about me riding just on the sidewalk and watching my balance, but at this point I really prefer it to walking, it feels good on my hips!
I haven't had labor signs really. I periodically get a Braxton hicks contraction, or a lower back contraction, but he is pretty darn comfy in there. 
We are in full preparation mode at our house, my sweet friend Marilyn is throwing me a baby shower in about two weeks, and I am so excited! I've been dreaming about our sweet boy almost every night and just cannot wait to snuggle him.
