    W/g: went back up 1lb last appt to reach 13lbs again

    S/c: Lots of pain in my back and ribs and still fighting dizziness but dr said its probably because my blood levels are so low. He put me on iron supplements 2 - 3 times a day on top of the pre-natals... Hoping that helps! Been having some BH at night, sometimes they wake me up because they are so strong but arent consistent!

    Other: Found out I wont be able to get the baby's room ready until the end of this month, right before the baby shower and vacation, by the time we get back I will be 35wks so i'm hoping we get it done before we leave! once thats done I will be able to relax some until its time for LO's arrival!

    Next D/a: 7/17 - reg ob, every 2weeks...
