Now got anaemia 😣 I'm floored


Well Iv had quite an uneventful pregnancy or so I thought and now I'm done already! I'm only 32+4 😣

Iv had major stress and anxiety all along as I lost a baby at 21 weeks last year and never found out why, then from 25 weeks had BH which caused me concern.

Then lost my mucus plug at 31 weeks and have really strong BH which do get regular alongside pressure and period type pains, midwife thinks it's baby just making their move! Baby has definitely dropped the last week or so my bump seems so much smaller!

Yesterday I had a few eye watering contractions, couldn't move or talk through them but then they stopped!

I'm still workin full time in my job where Iv had problems with my none understanding director, now my middle child (5year old) has a bad case chicken pox so I'm off work wth him and now I'm anaemic 😣😣😣

I'm so done, I'm floored! I want to finish work however they need me to do a lot of work before I finish and I don't feel like I can but don't know how to say because my director is horrible, all he's bothered about is my pay being statutory!

Sorry for my rant just feel crappy recently 😭

Today Iv woke up feeling awful, banging headache seeing stars if I have to bend down or move ��

How long do the tablets take to kick in? I'm meant to be going back to work tomorrow ��

Aw no you've had a tough time and your boss sounds an absolute idiot

Anemia is tough going, adding pregnancy to the mix makes it 10x harder.

I'm also anemic and have had back to back chicken pox with my two younger ones-such hard work isn't it? Hope your little ones getting better.

How many iron tablets a day are you on? I know it varies depending on how low your levels are, but with severe anemia with major 3 litre blood loss last year it took me a couple of weeks to start feeling any effect (3 tablets a day) and even then it was a slow progress.

But with this pregnancy my levels weren't too far into the low category (110)and they kicked in faster and I regained energy after a week or so (2 tablets a day)

Try to cut down on dairy, tea and coffee when you have the tablets and instead have orange juice with the pill. Itbhaelps absorbed the iron fast/better.

Hope you and your boy are better soon. Don't worry about work,they can suck it up!

Thank you! I'm on 2x210mg for now just been shopping to try and get myself eating better but it's hard I think Iv lived on toast!

I didn't realise how hard chicken pox was! He literally had 4 hours sleep all weekend and when I think he's getting better he seems floored himself! Im just waiting for the other 2 to get it!

Now I'm in the house more I'm seeing stuff that I want to do before the baby comes like freshen up the painting just don't know when il get this done and still have soooo much to do before baby gets here. Doesn't help that I just want to drink tea and eat chocolate biscuits on the couch 🙈🙈🙈
