28 weeks and the size of an eggplant

Hello everyone!  This update is for our 28th week of pregnancy!  We are officially in the third trimester!  Yay!!  And what an entrance into the trimester it has been!  For the first time in the history of my pregnancies, I had to come out of the choir stand during a service because I felt so horrible.  I was sad and disappointed, but just couldn't keep the energy going that I knew I would need.  I was so tired and so weak.  Turns out I have severe anemia thanks to some little bun snatching all my iron!  Now those Icee and Slurpee cravings make sense.

I go tomorrow for our first third trimester appointment and I'm looking forward to it...except the weight part.  I KNOW I've gained weight this time.
