More Belly Pics

Here are some more photos of my growing belly. A few people have noticed I'm pregnant now. I was pregnant with Scamp in the summer, and all kinds of people would approach me about my pregnant belly. Now, when I go places I'm all bundled up with my thick coat on, and people don't notice as much.

Scamp is always poking at my belly saying, "Hi, baby." When she sees other tiny babies she says, "I'm gonna have one of those." She asked me today if we we're going to have two babies. I told her no, just one. She seems to be fine with that.

I am 28 weeks today. We're getting very close to delivery. Last week, I had some excessive sharp pains in my lower left side. I have had them since the start of my pregnancy and was told it was a cyst (good thing) that developed on my ovary because of the pregnancy. The pain typically lasts 5-10 minutes and subsides, but I had been in pain for over two hours when I called my doctor. They told me to go to the ER, where they admitted me into Labor and Delivery.

The doctor who performed my surgery for the ectopic pregnancy I had back in March saw me. He did an ultrasound and found out everything was fine. I have a strained ligament, which is pretty common in pregnancy. I haven't had much pain since then. I also found out I'm anemic. It's funny how your pregnancy symptoms are the same as iron deficiency symptoms -- fatigue, irritability, inability to concentrate. I'm taking an iron supplement and am eating an iron-rich diet. Overall, I'm feeling pregnant, but it hasn't been too bad. We are feeling very excited and blessed. Beef has even cleaned out his office for the nursery. We hope to paint soon.

Oh wow, 28 weeks! You look really good! Sweet pictures.

I ended up getting a little pop up tent for Katelyn instead of the bed one....but am keeping the bed tent in mind for another child, thanks for the info!

How are you already 28 weeks pregnant? Gosh! Time flies by when its not your pregnancy! :) The pics look great...and I ALWAYS have those pulls when I get pregnant. I have to catch myself and not stand up too quickly or move my abs in strange positions! Glad you and the baby are ok.

I've been doing some catch up reading. I love Scamp's stories! *grin*
And I've been wondering...How was MOPS???
One more question: I'm not pregnant, and I'm not anemic so Why am I irritable?, LOL
