27 Week Update


I'm 27 weeks now and definitely feel like it! Baby girl is very active lately. Sometimes my stomach rolls like a wave from her moving around in there. Other times she pushes against two sides at once...I imagine that's her stretching out. I love feeling her move around in there! The hardest things right now are back pain and sometimes my feet hurt when I stand or walk a lot. Oh and I just started noticing my toes get swollen when I am on my feet a lot! That's kind of funny to me.

I had my blood taken to test for diabetes and anemia. Luckily I don't have gestational diabetes but I was told that I will have to take an extra iron supplement because I am slightly anemic. It's pretty common in pregnant women. I have been anemic before but after I started taking vitamins it went away. Now with the baby and me BOTH needing iron, I guess the prenatals weren't enough anymore. But that's okay! I would much rather have to take an extra supplement daily than have to eat a strict diet. I love my desserts!

We started setting up the crib in the nursery and it's exciting to see it slowly come together! If it were up to me it would quickly come together but...that's okay. ;-)

The back pain is so horrible sometimes! Glad things seem to be going well for you for the most part. I didn't get the results from my diabetes test but I dont know if I'd survive without my sugars.
