29 weeks pregnant
Hello everyone! This week’s update is for our 29th week. This week has been a pain in the absolute butt. I love pregnancy in general, but this week has made me feel less than amazing for sure. I shared last week that I was diagnosed with severe anemia. I have been taking iron supplements twice a day along with my prenatal. I was feeling pretty good a couple of days later and then….the bottom fell out. I felt horrid all week.
