I am very concerned because I have extreme anemia. I am SO tired, exhausted and weak. It is also causing me to have a really hard tme with breathing. I went to a naturapath and he prescribed me iron pills and I have been drinking nettle tea and making sure that I more recently am eating more red meat. My iron number that my naturapath gave me was 29.7 and my midwife told me that they aren't supposed to take me if my number is below 30. Perhaps I am just venting because I am worried that I will have to go to the hospital for delivery and have been told that our hospital has one of the highest c-section rates in the country. I REALLY hope and pray that these iron supplements get my numbers up so that I can breathe right again and can have more energy. The breathing thing keeps me up at night because when I lay down I have so much trouble breathing. It feels like an astma attack. I am so tired and 24 weeks pregnant. Anyone else here really anemic or was? Did you get your numbers up?
