On Monday, I had my 27 week checkup with my ob/gyn. After drinking the sickly sweet, orange-flavored, glucose-laced cocktail, I waited an hour and had my blood drawn. The nurse called today and said that luckily there is no sign of gestational diabetes, but I do have a slight case of pregnancy-related anemia. So along with a pre-natal vitamin and calcium tablets, I am now taking iron pills.
I'm not worried seeing as how I had the exact same thing with Sydney and she obviously turned out fine. So for the next 12 weeks, I'll dutifully take my four pills a day and keep staring at the ultrasound picture of our little guy in hopes that he gets my hairline and Ryan's perfect teeth.
