Pregnancy 29th week

Throughout most of my previous pregnancies I've had this picture in my head of climbing a hill, so to speak. The first 29 weeks are the upward climb, week 30 is the peak and then the last 10 weeks speed by. Not that the last weeks are the easiest by any means, just that the time seems to go rapidly. It's hard for me to believe that I'm approaching the 30 week mark already!

I'm feeling pretty good overall, I passed the blood sugar glucose test at my appointment yesterday. I was relieved not to have to take the 3 hour one (those are miserable!). The doctor did say that my iron level is low and he wants me to take a supplement....not surprising, I've done this at the end of almost all of the other pregnancies. It's also a good excuse to eat more steak! :)

Sleeping is becoming a bit more uncomfortable with heartburn and restless legs but it's not much to complain about.

Weight gain- I'm not
really that happy about where I'm at now. I am 3 pounds less now than I was at my heaviest (full term with my first), and I have 10.5 weeks to go still.....

I think that sums things up fairly well.

Love the pictures and the update!

Praise the Lord you passed the glucose the first time, you're right, that 3 hr one is a killer! Blech. Makes me a lil sick just thinkin' about it.

And I love that you have an excuse to eat more steak! Woo hoo!
