29 week stats

I had my 29 week appointment this past Wednesday.  Everything is going well except Walker is now measuring 3 WEEKS ahead of schedule.  Yes, you read that right - 3 weeks.  I feel like he is enormous, but I have to admit I was a little shocked when I found out he was measuring that far ahead.  It looks like I'll be having another ultrasound at my next appointment in 2 weeks so they can check out just how big he is.  I'm thinking he's going to be well over 9 pounds when he's born, but we'll see.  I definitely am more miserable than I was with Becca at this point, but that could be because it's the end of June and HOT!  Here's my current stats:

How far along?  29 weeks
Weight Gain:  15 pounds total
Sleep:  Not good - getting up at least 4 times a night to go to the bathroom.  I'm also really uncomfortable laying down, so that poses a problem.  He also likes to push on my lungs making me feel like I can' breathe.  Let's just say sleeping could be better!
Best Moment this Week:  Hearing Becca talk to him.  It seems like everytime I tell her he's moving, he stops as soon as she puts her hand on my stomach, but she still talks to him.  It is so sweet to hear her tell him she loves him.  I hope that doesn't change once he's here and doesn't leave:)
Cravings:  They have come back full force.  I'm still wanting a lot of fruit like watermelon and peaches, but I still crave salt.  I've also added sweets to the cravings (which is all I craved with Becca).  Oh, and sweet tea!
Size:  According to my weekly emails he should weigh a little less than 3 pounds and be about the size of a cabbage, but according to my doctor he's a lot larger.  We'll get back to this in two weeks when I go back.
Movement:  A LOT!  He doesn't just kick and jerk, this child flips.  His movements are so much stronger than Becca.  It still amazes me!  He also moves all day.  There is not really a certain time that he moves, except when I lay down.  It never fails - I lay down, he goes crazy!  At least those 'kick counts' that the doctor asks me to do are easy.  I just have to make sure he moves 5 times in an hour each day - I can usually cross this off my list before I get out of the bed in the mornings:)
Randoms:  We are down to 10 weeks before we meet this little guy!  That doesn't seem like very long.  We really need to get ready for this little guy.  With Becca I had her nursery DONE by this point, but poor Walker, I just haven't been on the ball.  I guess it's just how you are with number two!  We are very excited to meet him - I still can't believe we have a little boy on the way!

Here's a picture of my stomach, and yes I'm aware it's huge!  I also cut my head off because I feel like my face is swelling.  JP says it's not, but bless his heart, he has to say that.  Right?  

I also realize I haven't posted anything about Becca lately, so check back this week for a post about our sassy girl:)
