Keeping you guys in my thoughts.

Although I passed my GD test with flying colors, I'm severely anemic.
The normal range is between 37 and 47. I'm at a 31.7.
OB explained to me that a c-section could bring my iron levels down as low as 25, with 27 being the cut off for the risk of spontaneous
and massive bleeding.
The iron pills make me horribly sick and constipated, so I'm just going to try to increase my iron intake through diet because I don't wanna die.
My stomach was also measuring 28 weeks, when I was 30 weeks and 6 days. Should I be worried about that?
Hope you ladies and your babies are doing well.

Congrats Mama! I think you are the first to deliver due in May that posts in this thread. I hope both your hospital stays are speedy!



To the mama with anemia...Have they suggested Iron infusion treatments? I started having them 4 weeks ago. I go in once a week and sit for an hour and a half to get small doses. It's really helping my anemia. I can't do extra oral supplements, they make me tmi horribly constipated.



Tonight I can't sleep. Anxious and super uncomfortable. She's all off to one side and really stretching.

Thank you:) I was able to see him about 3-4 times, but I am leaving the hospital midday tomorrow, so trying to spend more time with him before I discharge. Of course I'll be visiting him daily, but it's weird to leave him here. But I'm also anxious to get home an be with my DD. poor thing has been such a trooper with all this craziness in the past week.



But how are you feeling? How's the pregnancy going? Hopefully you haven't been taking on too much with the home projects you mentioned before ( I think?) .
