High fives everyone! I made it to the 3rd trimester!
I’ve also taken two doses of Floradix, and it did not make me sick! More high fives! I mixed it into orange juice just like you guys recommended. The vitamin C helps you absorb the iron apparently.
I called my mom who pulled out her very trusty natural healing reference book, and she had some great ideas as well. The book gave great lists of food sources for iron. I also posted over on the Natural Parents’ Network Facebook page for some natural ways to increase iron. I think Sunday’s post might revolve around what I learned from there, from my mom, from you guys, and from my other friends about this.
I’m not sure how long it will take before I start feeling better. Hopefully soon! I’m looking forward to not feeling like I’m going to pass out every few minutes.
