35 Weeks!!

How Far Along: 35 Weeks
Size of baby: 5 1/4lbs,18 inches and the size of a honeydew melon.
Weight Gain: 18lbs
Maternity Clothes: I am still able to wear a combo of maternity and regular clothes which is realllllly crazy.
Gender: BOY! (Brody)
Movement: Pretty often but he's really running out of room to do too much.
What I miss: Sleep and being cold.
Sleep: I get up about 5 times per night.
Symptoms: I'm always way too hot and usually very exhausted. Only 4 weeks left!

I had a checkup today (I'm on weekly visits now) and my doctor was running late. She came into the room apologizing and said that the patient before me came in and was complaining about "a little pain every few minutes." Well, she checked her and she was 9cm dilated, in active labor and about to have a baby! They rushed to check her into the hospital, got her a wheelchair and took her to L&D which was why she was late getting to me. I didn't mind the wait since my mom was watching B (thanks Mom!) but I can't imagine not knowing that "pain every few minutes" was contractions! Good thing she had an appointment today!

In other news, I found out (possibly) why I'm so tired. They did a standard iron test on me and I'm anemic. I've been put on a prescription iron pill (I have no idea what the difference is between the OTC pill and the RX pill) so I'm going to start that tonight. Hopefully I will get some energy back! Seriously, all I want to do is lay down or sleep 24/7 which is impossible when you've got an active 21 month old!
