I'm still not sure why pregnancy robs us of sleep near the end when we need the energy the most! I'll be praying for good health and opportunities for you to relax and rest!

Kari, sorry that you are at that super uncomfortable and ready to be done stage. I'm on my way there too.

My next appointment is on December 8th. I'm down to 2 week appointments now. I will have another ultrasound around 32 weeks to check growth etc. Lily has been a wild woman the last couple days. Lots of of kicking and rolling. It's so fun! That is my favorite part of pregnancy! I'm really sore though, my pelvis has been hurting the most. Also having some back pain but that has gotten a little better since I started sleeping with a pillow between my knees at night. I don't know what helps the pelvic pain though. I'm 30 weeks tomorrow! Only 10 weeks left!

Someone once told me that the reason the body can't get any rest in the 3rd trimester, is so you are used to sleep deprivation by the time baby arrives ;)

That has a certain logic to it, but I still say it's unfair. ;)

The newborn lack of sleep was actually more pleasant than the preggo 'I can't sleep or move to save my life' lack of sleep lol. Until the newborn up all night stage ended up lasting 12+ months with #3. Ug that was brutal. Praying this boy sleeps awesome like his 2 brothers did!

28 week appointment today :)

I didn't gain any weight this month which shocked my socks off with all the desserts I ate over thanksgiving LOL. Not complaining. If I gain a pound a week until delivery I'll be at or under 25lbs total which makes me very happy since I started higher than I wanted.

My iron is also still "low" at 10.7 with 11 being the cut off. Usually my iron is like 15 so it's a big difference for me but not bad enough to warrant pills yet. They said they will be watching it though because as baby get's bigger they take more so I'll be left worse off. So for now I eat high iron? Okay.

I also start 2 week appointments now but am kinda hoping to push it a smidge each time closer to 3 lol. It's a pain to go all the way there when there is nothing but a scale & 5 minute convo waiting. So I go back now on the 28th. I also have another level 3 U/S on Jan 5 to recheck his kidneys (was a bit enlarged last time) & placenta (was too close to cervix). I'm hoping they flip the 3/D switch again- I've never had a 3D u/s that late in gestation before an I'm super curious :)

Praying for no problems with the iron levels, kidneys or placenta! Yay for getting in all the sweets and not gaining! How often can we say that happens? ;)

Great job on the weight gain, Angie. Glad they are watching your iron, hopefully you won't need supplements. Eat some steak? ;) Can't wait for your next u/s, I hope they give you a peak at baby in 3D! Praying that the enlarged kidneys and the placenta being too close to the cervix have both resolved.


I had my 30 week appointment last Thursday. I only gained 1 lb, woohoo! That puts me up 25 according to her, I know more like 30 hehe. But I didn't tell her that. Everything looks good and I'm measuring perfectly. I have my 32 week scan on Dec 22nd! Can't wait to peak at baby again, and I'm definitely going to ask them to double check to make sure it's still a girl, haha. Ever just feel like the tech was wrong? I keep having that feeling. But I felt the same way with Elena too so I don't know what to think. Guess we'll see on the 22nd.
