{b}U{M}PDATE: 28 Weeks

I had a doctor's appointment August 15th.
I only gained 1 pound. I was really surprised. Last time I was there my doctor was concerned I'd gained too much weight in the previous month, so I was quite relieved.  
My doctor says I have hypoglycemia-or low blood sugar. It explains why I get dizzy, see dots, have short little black outs, etc. {This only happens when I have gone too long without eating-sometimes it's hard to eat so often}.  I'm just supposed to eat frequent small meals and stay away from sweets to combat it, which I had already been doing cause I would feel sick if I didn't. 
So, thankfully there isn't much I need to change.
Oh and I have a yeast infection.
Other than that, all was good at the appointment.
The baby's heartbeat is healthy and I am measuring just right.
I just love hearing that heartbeat- it makes my heart go twitter-patter.

I grow tired far too easily these days.
I have been sleeping an extra 1-2 hours a night. I still don't nap all that often, though.
Maybe if I did I wouldn't be sleeping in so much..
My upper back has started aching real bad. I'm attributing it to my increased breast size. I don't know how women with extra large breasts handle it on a regular basis or when they are pregnant. I am ready for mine to go back to their normal size.
Most of the time though, I feel pretty great.
I am still jogging/exercising.
I feel like I have more energy on days I do exercise and it usually helps my nausea go away.
I can't believe I am in the third trimester. As of right now, this pregnancy seems to be flying by.
I am anxious to start getting everything ready for baby. I haven't done much besides dye some onesies since we are in Louisiana still, but you better bet your bottom dollar that's what will be filling my days once we get back to Utah. We are so excited to meet our baby.  Everyday Tyler and I talk about what it will be like- we are excited to see how Razz acts towards baby J. Hopefully he won't get too jealous.
