Josiah Neal {28 Weeks 5 Days}

We are in the third trimester now! Not too much longer to go! Today, my doctor gave me my glucose results from the screening I had on Tuesday and my sugar levels are perfectly normal! However, he said that I was extremely anemic, which wasn't much of a surprise to me because I struggled with anemia before this pregnancy as well.  So he prescribed an iron supplement for me to take twice a day. 

As far as the pregnancy goes, I've been experiencing the normal third trimester stuff like heart burn, leg cramps and back pain.  Besides that, everything is great!

Josiah is as active as ever.  I can feel him kicking and punching all day long off and on.  He even wakes me up during the night with his movements. 

This past month, I gained a total of 13 pounds.  I thought that this was ridiculous but my doctor was very pleased because he said I was making up for not gaining very much before.  So that puts my total weight gain at 29 pounds. 

Now that I am in the third trimester, I have to start seeing my doctor every two weeks.  At my next appointment, I will be receiving my Rhogam shot.
