WAAAAAHOOOOO!!!!! I got a call from my peri's nurse yesterday afternoon & she told me that my 1 hour results were back. She told me that it was perfect, actually better than perfect which made me SOOOOOOO happy! As always though, there has to be that 1 thing to be thrown in there to put a little damper on the issue. My iron levels are still low. Well, DUH! I've got 3 babies sucking me dry!
I asked what I could do, whether I needed to up my iron supplement to 3 times daily & she said she would actually prefer that I try to eat more iron rich foods. I can do that...come on pasta & rice! Especially now that I'm not diabetic, I can have all that stuff. Bring it on! If that doesn't work, then I will have to up the supplement & that comes w/ consequences...constipation.
Now, I don't mean to get off on another tangent but any pregnant woman can vouch for this...being constipated sucks during pregnancy. I don't mean to get too graphic but you can't strain so that leaves very serious problems if ya know what I mean. Needless to say, the last thing I want to do is become more constipated. I have finally started to become regular. PLEASE...NO MORE IRON SUPPLEMENTS!
Anyway, back on topic. Todd is going to go to the store tonight to stalk up on iron rich & fortified food for me. Apparently the babies are fine, I just can't handle them sucking me dry. We are really going to try to change that.
Alrighty then! Enjoy the rest of your week & thank you again for all the prayers! THey continue to work!
