Yay for passing, but i'm sorry your anemic. Are they just having you take extra iron for a little while and then retesting or until the end?

I think they will want me on supplements until the end, only because I dont think there are more standard blood tests after this point? Are there? But maybe they will give me a special blood test just to check my iron. The last test I thought is the group strep b and thats not a blood test. I dont know for sure, because the midwife left me a voicemail and the office was closed when I called back. So Im not sure how much or anything yet. But I hear its common. My friend was anemic throughout her pregnancy too. I read today that it can be more prevalent in those who had lots of morning sickness, which I did. And in those who had heavy periods before becoming preggers which I also had.

Yay for passing! Anemia is pretty common. Ive had it with all my babies. The iron suplements should fix it though. They taste awful though!
