I had my 1 hour glucose test yesterday and passed with flying colors! However, I'm borderline anemic... which totally explains a LOT. I have been SO TIRED this whole pregnancy - I have just felt like I can't possibly ever get enough rest no matter how early I hit the sheets at night. So, I am on a mission to get more iron in my diet since I really don't want to take iron supplements.
I have a feeling that it goes hand in hand with the fact that meat hasn't appealed to me at all this pregnancy. Just last week I started trying to ramp up my protein intake, so hopefully that will help with my iron levels, too. Unfortunately, choosing meat over something else still really takes a lot for me. It's weird because I am a total carnivore usually - I love meat. But this pregnancy is totally messing with my appetite and taste... blah!
So does anyone have have suggestions for high-iron recipes or snacks?? And any suggestions on how to make meat more appetizing?
