Baby Brain and Work
Floradix iron supplement is great stuff. It's like energy in a bottle for me. I feel all washed out and like I'm pushing a wall in front of me everywhere I go. I'm exhausted, and weak and spacey, and blah. Then, with floradix, my brain works. I sleep better, and have energy, and don't feel weak anymore. It's really amazing how different I feel when I am taking it. But, I guess with all the hard work our bodies are doing increasing blood supply and stuff it makes sense that we need extra iron.
I have the same problem. It's my biggest complaint about pregnancy right now. I feel like I have maybe half a brain, if that. I don't work, am a sahm but I'm a cerebral person and it makes me uncomfortable to be so airheaded. I definitely have that "inability to finish my sentences" thing going on. I feel dumb and useless most of the time, honestly.
Count me in on the problems finishing sentences. It was driving my husband nuts when we were on the phone yesterday! Add in that we are doing some foreign language translating at work, and my mind is complete mush. It was so hard to concentrate yesterday. So far it was been a bit better today, maybe because I had some red meat for dinner! I haven't been taking iron supplements since my iron levels have been normal according to my blood work, but maybe I will have to look into it. Not sure if I want to trade the absentmindedness for constipation though.
