So I got my blood results back. I'm anemic. She wants me to try to fix it with my diet first and then re-test me next time. If the results are the same she wants me to take an iron supplement.
I'm not really surprised. I eat lots of eggs, dark leafy greens, beans, and raisins. But I've almost entirely cut beef out of my diet. Mainly because I love cows. But I do like beef too, I just feel guilty. So I will try to get over it and eat some more red meat in combo with Orange Juice...because I guess it helps with absorption. I also recently started taking those gummy prentatals which do not have iron, because I thought the iron was making me sick. Back to the regular 'ol prenatals.
Also I'm losing weight quite rapidly...I hate it. I know I mentioned it before, but I'm eating constantly...my boss made a comment about the amount of food I brought in today. I'm hoping its a phase and the baby is just stealing my calories. I weighed about 113 before I got pregnant (I'm 5' tall and small boned). Now I weigh 107. How is that even possible? My MIL said I looked skinny. Makes me nervous. Anyone else have a weight loss problem?
