Yep, 29 weeks already. Actually, tomorrow I will be 30 weeks! How in the world did that happen? This pregnancy is flying by!
Overall, I’m feeling well. Sleeping it getting to be a bit trickier as I’m usually a belly-sleeper. But I’m not too tired (until the end of the day) and no major aches or pains. I’m feeling bigger than I remember being other times but Louis says he doesn’t think so. Baby is moving around tons, which is always reassuring. Really, I have nothing to complain about!
I just had a midwife appointment and all went well. I had my glucose test a few weeks ago and that came back fine. My hemoglobin was on the low-ish side so the midwife recommended I start taking some extra iron. I prefer to get Floradix iron supplement over iron pills. It’s a natural, vegetable-based drink that actually tastes pretty good. Because it’s natural, you don’t encounter the bowel issues that someones accompany regular iron pills.
When I came home from my appointment yesterday, my 4 year old came running, “Mommy’s home! Mommy’s home! Mommy, is the baby here now?!”
Cutie..I guess when I explained to him that the midwife was like a special baby doctor, he thought she was just going to give us the baby, hehe.
Really, that’s all there is to update! I’m still praying that the rest of the pregnancy goes smoothly and safely, and that the delivery will be safe as well. I’ll confess, I still do have random fearful moments of thinking something will go wrong, either now or during delivery.
Is anyone else here expecting? When are you due? I’d love to hear about it!
