Ok, I'm jumping back in!
So, I've got about 4-5 weeks now to really improve my numbers. Hold me accountable ladies, I might need tough love. I'm going to do another draw around 37 weeks to confirm my platelet count is indeed over 100. That's the magic number to keep my home birth!
And, not for nothing, but my iron was right at the low end of normal, so I'm thinking that this is all b/c of the normal 3rd trimester blood volume increase. Still, it can't hurt to try, right? At least then I can say I did all I could. I'm going to really add in vitamin C every day (how much do you think is good per day? 1000mg? 500mg?) and start up again with Floradix. I bought more yellow dock to take 2-3 times a day. Going to keep up with the whole foods and the protein shakes, of course, just for general purposes.

How is everyone else doing? Lyn, I think I read in another thread that your DH hooked you up with some great protein/iron sources! That's awesome! CCL - how have you been feeling?
