Today I had my 28 weeks appointment and everything is going great. At 20 weeks she tested my iron and it was a 9.5 and we were both concerned and I started taking the floradix. Well, we rechecked it and it was a 12.5!! WOO HOO! I am sure some of you understand my complete joy so I had to share.

Do you take it once or twice a day? I seem to only be managing one around the dairy I'm eating.

ditto! I have started eating some beef, though. Can't hurt, and my energy level is up so I think something is working.<br><br>
Congrats, gabbyquilts!

well she had me take double what the bottle said, so I am taking 20ml twice a day and having citrus with it (orange, orange juice, something).<br><br>
good luck to all the other low iron ladies.<br><br>

YAY for good news! I don't get rechecked until 36 weeks. Is this odd? I'm feeling like I have more energy though, so that's gotta be a good sign. I take my iron pill first thing in the AM with water and orange juice.
