30 week visit!

Went to the doctor today. I think my brain cells went out the window when I got there. I told them I had a doctors appointment with Dr. Wilson. The lady looked at me funny and looked through the papers. She eventually had to look me up in the computer. My doctor is Dr Warner. I was convinced she was the crazy one! :) She was pretty sympathetic, perhaps it happens more at the OBs office then a family doctor.

Everything went pretty well at the visit. I have gained between 20-23 pounds so far. Can't remember for sure. She must be okay with that since she didn't say anything. Only 10 more weeks so hopefully I don't gain a ton more. I am anemic so she told me to go buy an iron supplement. I forgot to get it today so I'll go out for it tomorrow. I wasn't too surprised since I have been denied to donate blood before because of anemia. She also had my blood drawn again today to check my thyriod level. She said since I'm on the low end of normal she wants to check it every month until I deliver.

I was complaining to her about how bad my hips are hurting. I was born with hip issues and I think that is part of the reason they are so sore. She told me to just hold out for 6 more weeks and then she would be fine with me going into labor. SIX MORE WEEKS!!!! Holy crap. Thanks for making the pregnant lady panic. I'm getting to the point that I want to meet her, but I'm not ready. There are still so many things I need to get and do before she comes. I packed her diaper bag for the hospital a couple days ago. I have started working on my bag. It seems surreal that she is actually coming.

Friends from home came down today. Shawn and his boyfriend Chad and Amanda and her friend Crystal came down. All of them and Megan, Jaden and I went to the Bodies Exhibit today and out to lunch downtown. It was so nice to hang out with them and the Exhibit was just as cool the second time.

I'm ready for bed and it's only 8:30! Avery sure is taking it out of me lately. As usual I'm hungry again so I think I'll look for some food first.

Love you all!
