With all the craziness going on I forgot to mention my Dr's appointment. Baby is about the size of a cantaloupe. I've gained 20.4 lbs. Only gained 4oz since last appointment. Maybe I'm starting to level off. Did the same with Violet. I know they say you usually gain a lot in the end. We'll see what happens with the next few weeks.
My blood pressure is pretty low. Low enough that the nurse taking it said 'wow your pressure is low'. I'm also anemic right now and on iron. I've been feeling very light headed and dizzy lately. Have at least one episode a day. That only happened two or three times with Violet. I was told the low blood pressure combined with low iron is causing this feeling. Need to try and up my protein intake and not move to quickly.
Baby is still breech and I'm pretty sure he's footling breech. I feel kicking so low it seems like he's trying to get out. Next appointment if he hasn't moved, ,which I doubt he will, we'll discuss the situation.

Just be careful while showering. I got dizzy like that when pregnant with Mica. I fainted in the shower. I was all banged up, and shaky afterwards thinking something may be wrong. The doctor just said I over did it. I went walking, then took a shower.
