29 weeks

29 This week with Addison, I was getting my mastectomy and not only praying that the cancer would be forever eliminated, but also PRAYING she would stay put (which she did for 13 days...ha!) I would say I'm definitely in a better situation this time around!

My hip is a little better (meaning I no longer have to crawl up my stairs on hands and knees, but rather place most of the support on one leg and hang onto my banister to support my other side). My foot is probably about 95%. In general, I feel great!

I have an OB appointment tomorrow and will talk to him about my treatment options for this hip. But, I do think it's a positive that there is improvement.

Really not much else to report. Enjoy the growing belly!

How your baby's growing:
Your baby now weighs about 2 1/2 pounds (like a butternut squash) and is a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel. His muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and his head is growing bigger to make room for his developing brain. To meet his increasing nutritional demands, you'll need plenty of protein, vitamins C, folic acid, and iron. And because his bones are soaking up lots of calcium, be sure to drink your milk (or find another good source of calcium, such as cheese, yogurt, or enriched orange juice). This trimester, about 250 milligrams of calcium are deposited in your baby's hardening skeleton each day.
