I LOVE my Floradix! I take 15 mL in the morning and at bedtime, followed by an orange emergen-C chaser to help it absorb and to wash the Floradix aftertaste out of my mouth. I like the way the Floradix tastes, but I don't want to taste it all day long. I think the Floradix is why I still manage to have some energy.
Kawa, my MWs last pregnancy tested my iron fairly often to monitor where I was w/ my levels since I tend to drop really fast. These MWs will be testing me again in a few weeks to see where I'm at before birth. One of the ungood things that can happen with anemia is that one can have excessive bleeding after birth. Since I'd rather not hemorrhage or even just bleed a ton more than I need to, I want to try and get my iron levels up as high as possible before birth.
Snowflake, I totally know what you mean about breathing! Stairs are impossible for me because I can't breathe at all. I'm also getting hit with random waves of "I can't breathe suddenly and I need to sit down NOW before I fall over" which is just super. It's accompanied by dizziness and it usually happens when there's no where for me to sit! I need one of those walkers with the little seat on them. lol
I just realized that it's 2:15 and I haven't eaten lunch yet. This is probably why I'm back to losing weight instead of gaining it. Sheesh.
Forgot to add that I got a scholarship today!! It's a Sigma Theta Tau scholarship, which is the Nursing Honor Society. I have no idea how much it is but I am beyond thrilled!!! The more scholarships the better because I don't have to pay those back later!
