Check your iron! We talked about it not too long ago ( see here ) in the Dec. group.
Either way, it stinks! I get that feeling pretty early on and it takes forever to go away!

It's funny but even mainstream doctors here seem to know what floradix is. That being said, NO ONE has even heard of the pill form in Israel and furthermore I can't get it imported no matter how many health food stores I ask about it. I *think* you might be able to find it in Brasil (that's where you are, right?) but you might just have to really hunt to find. Rosemary Gladstar has a recipe for it. I think Yellow Dock Root (if you can find the translation/latin name of that and go to a local herb shop) will be able to help you.
Now that we are out of the flora, I've taken to continually drinking a teaspoon of backstrap molassess in a cup of water all day long. Maybe you could do that? Might help a bit. If you eat meat, organ meats are high in iron. I'm vegetarian so that doesn't fly for me.
On a totally personal OT note, I'm SOOOO homesick, grrrl. That's after 4 years in this country. I spent most of yesterday trying to convince dh to move back to the USA. He only gave it a year and a few months before moving us all back here. So far, he's not having it.
Do the Floradix pills work as well as the liquid? I have been looking for dandelion and yellow dock, but haven't found them yet. I know they're around here somewhere... Hopefully my midwife can recommend a slow-release iron if I can't find the Floradix here.
And I miss the US, too. 10 months in Brazil now... 10 lo-o-ong months. I'm going to try to talk my husband into starting a savings account so we can do yearly 'vacations' in the US. "For the kids!"
