    Weight gain: 20 pounds

    Symptoms/Conditions: My Anemia is killing me some days. I get dizzy spells often, hopefully my MW can get me on something that will help.
    Rib pain is here and there now, depends on my posture during the day and i started getting a lot more cramping the past couple days.

    Other: Work has been getting sooooo stressful! These long hours are killing me. This week I am training up my reliefs to start taking over the team so I can get ready for maternity leave

    Next appointment: July 31st MW.

    27 weeks

    Weight gain: Lost another pound which puts me a pound less than prepregnacy.

    Symptoms/Conditons: Braxton-Hicks Contractions have started. A lot of hip and leg pain if I walk too much. It's been raining a lot lately so I haven't been able to go to the pool. Changed insulin for my GD so hopefully I can get my blood sugars under control.

    Other: Had my monthly ultrasound today and everything looks great. My baby boy is a healthy 2 lbs 3 oz and 15 inches long.

    Next Appointment: Aug 8th, Ultrasound Aug. 20th

    Weight Gain: 10 pounds

    Symptoms/Conditions: My siactic nerve is killing me again. Last time it was really bad and my doctor had put me on bed rest for a few days. Hopefully it won't get as bad this time. I also have had pain in my pelvic from stretching.

    Other: Our little guy is being very active lately. He will even kick back now when my belly gets pushed on. lol

    Next Appointment: July 25th OB

    Taryn and blue team


    Weight gain: 6 lbs

    s/c: fatigue and really sore hips

    Other: had my 20 week ultrasound today. Baby boy was measuring 21-1/2 weeks which is consistant with what my original due date was. (OB pushed it back 2 weeks in the beginning of the pregnancy.) They said they won't change the due date, so I'm thinking this baby will be early. Still have to decide if I want to do VBAC or a repeat c-section. Can't make up my mind.
