full blood count

when i went to see my midwife last week she said my iron levels were boarderline and she would give me another blood test to check next time i see her. I have been thinking about this and i am not seeing her for 4 weeks and i had the blood test 4 weeks before that and i was just thinking i wonder if this could have anything to do with why i feel so tired. Also i was thinking 8 weeks in between is a long time what do you think?

It could be why you are feeling tired. Although, I've been exhausted and my iron levels are fine. It might be worth ringing to see if you could be re-tested again sooner rather than later.

Hey hun, your bloods are routinely checked around 28 weeks for your iron levels, but you naturally lose iron the further along you are anyway. I think my doctors give you iron tablets if you score below 10 point something. With Lauren I was a 12 something first trimester then went borderline (10 point 8??) but as I was still taking pregnacare they didn't give me iron as it was already in the tablets.


Have you thought about maybe getting some pregnacare, and you can get iron in red meats or green leafy veg. I know it seems like a ballache when you can just get it in tablet form, but iron tablets can really bung you up and make you feel bloated, which in the long run then you'll be back to square one!

Hey Olo

Best way of taking iron without the bunging up effect of tablets is "SPATONE". Available from Holland & Barratt.

I tool it post surgery last year when my levels were 7.4!!! and I was borderline transfusion. (lost loads of blood) Within 2 weeks back up to 9.3

you mix a tiny sachet (2 if your preg) with a small bit of fresh juice to aid absorbtion.

thumbup hope you're well chick!

Hi Olo - I was borderline too and being vegetarian also am just making sure I cram in loads of leafy green veg, dried fruits and cereals and have fresh fruit juice with each meal as it helps to absorb iron. I have also heard of spartone as a good iron source without the constipation. Good luck chick!
