currently 29 weeks and got some bloods results from my midwife. As i suspected my iron levels are low, borderline anemic and so is my bp at 96/60 when it has been around 100/60 past appts. So no wonder i have been having days of feeling absolute ****ttteeeeehouseeee!!!
I have been put on the same iron tablets i was on when i left hospital after the birth of my DD. These made me sooo unbelievably constipated - i know surgery can bugger up the digestive system for a bit but i didnt poo for 4 weeks! i had to lie and say i had a bowl movement so they'd let me go home from hospital.
Metamusal didnt work and i had it poured over every meal lol
Im wondering if it could hurt to take a mild laxative tablet while im on these iron tabs and while pregnant? is it safe? i forgot to ask my middie about it.
Anyone suffered low iron and bp? its so annoying, how did u get thru it?
