Sandy and the 1000 Paper Cranes: About The Project

I recently joined the group 20 Something Bloggers and stumbled across the blog below where Sandy is creating and releasing 1000 paper cranes with a different inspirational word on each one. She leaves them for others to find and to hopefully spread a bit of positive energy and "world peace" which is what cranes symbolize. She came up with this idea after reading "Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes" by Elanor Coerr which is a book about a girl from Hiroshima who was diagnosed with cancer and wanted to fold 1000 cranes before she died but unfortunately only made it to 644. I was inspired when reading her blog and thought you might be interested in learning about it too!

Week: 19 Baby size: 6 inches, the size of a mango Bump size: 35.5 inches   Weight: +10 pounds Cravings: Anything sweet I still can't pass up desserts and don't worry - I didn't pass on anything this week, as much as I should have. I ate a glazed doughnut, piece of chocolate cake (it was small...) and a piece of cheesecake. Not all in the same day, but in the same week.  Other than my poor eating habits, which is old news at this point, there were a few other big developments this week. I guess you could say I officially "popped." I received more comments (and more belly touching) this week than I have throughout the pregnancy. This is both good and bad. I kind of liked being able to "hide" my pregnancy and only talk about it when and with whom I wanted. Those days are officially behind me and my protruding belly apparently is just screaming to people, "yes, I'm pregnant. Let's talk about it." There are only two weeks

Week: 28 Baby length: 14.8 inches Baby weight: 2.25 lbs. - the weight of a head of lettuce Bump size: 38.75 inches Weight: +22.5 pounds (+1.5 lbs. from last week) Cravings: Zucchini bread and birthday cake Cravings My SIL Leann and I made four loaves of zucchini bread last Friday. She kept two loaves (at my inlaws) and Pat and I took the other two. I can't stop eating it! But it's not really a dessert. It's a bread. There's a difference. And Pat has been eating just as much (if not more) than I have. And as far as I know, he's not pregnant! I also turned 29 this week and my MIL and SIL made me a birthday cake, and my coworker made me red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. YUM! Even the dessert nazi said I can eat cake on my birthday (and the day after...).  Baby Movements I felt the baby's hiccups for the first time this week. I woke up in the middle of the night to a pulse-like vibration coming from my belly about ever
