Today I saw the OB and my iron levels have dropped dramatically since I was last tested a couple months back. (I cant remember the number of the big number - though she said very low, but the hemoglobin level dropped for 15 to between 2-3 now!
They wanted to hospitalise me but as im already on bedrest at home they instead gave me an injection of iron and tonnes of suppliments to take and sent me home.
I have to see the OB again in 3 weeks and if they havent dramaticlly improved Ill be having weekly shots of iron for 6-8weeks.
Just wondering how long it takes for my numbers to improve? I was thinking 3 weeks is a long time, could my baby suffer in that time? Will the suppliments and injection take that long to kick in?
