Lili, I take the gummies and then an iron pill. The prenatal pills are way too big, ick! You have to be careful with the iron pills though because there's so many different kinds out there and some have really high doses. I take a somewhat high dose because my blood test showed I'm low on iron.

Angel, I think gaining 35-40 pounds is normal, and you're almost at the end! I understand feeling upset about weight gain though because I feel the same way. We have a baby growing inside of us though and shouldn't be too hard on ourselves!

My iron has always been fine. Maybe I don't even need it in my vitamin. I'll ask my midwife next visit. I can manage if I break the pills in half, so maybe taking 1/2 every day instead of a whole one every third day is better.

I generally eat pretty healthy, so I'm probably not as concerned with vitamins as I should be.

It's so easy to obsess about weight gain in the third tri! First tri, we're like "eat anything that we won't puke up." 2nd tri it's playing catch up and ready to start showing. Then third tri hits and I'm like "how the heck did I get so big?!"
I have been doing a mini workout routine before bed each night and walking at least 2-3 miles a day to try and stay fit enough to run after my toddler with a newborn. But despite that, I feel I'm getting more out of shape each day! Argh.

Hellooo! This part of pregnancy is so boring isn't it ?! it's like the loooooooooooooooong calm before the storm. I'm just desperately counting down to 30 weeks; at least at 30 weeks you are in the last run! this horrible early third tri part feels like limbo.

Third tri really does feel like it lasts forever! Being uncomfortable really doesn't help either. Lol

I am desperate to get to 30 weeks too, feels much more like the final stretch than getting to third tri! Ready to finish work as well, getting really tired and cumbersome. People keep asking me how long i've got left so I think it's pretty obvious i've had enough!

Had my 30 week doc apt today. My doc moved my dates and is considering me now 32/33 weeks. I'm measuring 30 weeks and baby's date of conception is bang on for 30 weeks to the day but she's loved me ahead to get all my tests done sooner as well as a check up scan to see how big baby might be. Having two early babies previously, my doctors are 'worried' that this one will come early too. I've been told that it will probably be around the (hopefully) 36 week mark, using my dates, 39 using hers. Apparently I just cook them fast. . She did mention that my torso and uterus were probably a bit on the small size for me to be able to go full term or even overdue. I'm getting to the point where I'm counting down but I'm going in a six week timeline rather then 10 or 12. I guess we will see what happens

That's interesting, medic. Why did they change your dates even if you're measuring 30 weeks? I feel like even if you deliver early, your charts should still say your true dates so the doctors will know the baby is early. Or did I get that wrong and she's just saying you may go early, but they're leaving your true dates on the charts?

Anyone have a good double stroller recommendation? I can't seem to find one that I love that won't break the bank.

I'm so confused by all that medic. Haha. As long as you understand then it's all good. They never move dates this late on here! I wish they would lol so I stop having giant overdue babies lmao. I know I'm selfish haha but it gets to a point and it's like just get out ! I'm only 5ft so I have no torso LMAO. You should see me at 42 weeks. Weebles wobble but they don't fall down
