bouncing off the walls

28-week appointment highlights:
  • weight: 127, a 5-lb. gain over the last four weeks (beats the 8-lb. gain during the previous four week period!)
  • blood pressure: great
  • belly measurement: 28 (right on target)
  • fetal heart rate: great, 150s-160s
  • last appointment's blood work indicated serious anemia, so today I was happy to report an obvious improvement in energy level since beginning the extra iron supplement
  • major complaint: constant lower back pain
  • doctor's orders: begin daily kick count chart (shouldn't be hard considering he never really stops bouncing off the {uterine} walls)
  • next appointment scheduled: 32 weeks

    I'd like to tell you that at 28 weeks pregnant, you weigh almost the exact same as me, and I'm negative 2.5 years pregnant. Fancy.

    Your belly is adorable!
