UGH! I am just fuming! I told the ladt that answered the phone that I was taking some meds that I needed to stop taking if I was, so I needed to find out ASAP. She asked if I had missed a period, I told her I've not been regular & that I already have 3 kids & I'm having some similar syumptoms, sore nipples, mild cramping off & on (more on today though), heart burn, lack of energy, aching, etc etc & that I had had - HPTs, but that I had talked to some other moms that had suggested I get a serum b/c they had similar things happen & that about 3 weeks ago I had about a day & 1/2 of light pink spotting & since then have had some clear/mucousy discharge, well she puts me on hold, comes back & asks what meds I'm taking, I tell her, she puts me back on hold, comes back & tells me that my meds will be ok if I am & that since I've not "missed a period" & did have bleeding a few weeks ago, that "Dr. B******I doesn't feel as if I need a serum test" That was it, end of conversation, no suggestions, no "watch for this or that" or anything...
What about prenatals? If I am I need to start taking them, don't I??? I mean, I take a multi-vitamin (from the HFS-Super Supplemental-2 pills 2x daily), but they only give me 400 mg Folic Acid per day, is that enough? I always end up anemic too...I did do a google search & find lists of fodos high in folic acid & iron & printed them out & stuck them on the fridge...trying really ahrd to eat things on them!
UGH...I guess I'll just go on & do things like I am...Is there anything I need to do/take FOR SURE, JIC? I don't know if there is really any way to prevent a m/c, irght? But do you ahve any advice for me?
