You must be so exhausted with such little sleep day after day and a family to take care of!

AFM, my blood results say I am really anemic, so I have to up my iron supplement dose to triple. I will be taking magnesium too so I don't get too constipated. At least I now know why I am so exhausted most of the time! And why my heart rate is so fast.

So glad my midwife didn't even suggest an induction. She said baby's heart sounded great, and I seem to be doing really well, aside from the effects of low iron.

We scheduled a biophysical profile ultrasound for Friday, when I will be two weeks overdue, at a local hospital to check on Baby. The hope, of course, is that I don't make it to that appointment...
Wife to my supportive DH and WAHM to DD Nora (06/10), DS Emerson (07/12), and baby #5 (due 5/16) and my precious babies in heaven: Bennet (died 8/15 at 12 months) and Lucy (miscarried 7/15).
