I hate when I am right ALL THE TIME!

Now that I am on a 1800 calorie strict diet of low to no sugar, I am dizzy, and have migraines. The diet does consist of a lot of dairy which is awesome cause now I am in the bathroom all day. At least I am sitting down while I am dizzy! The doctor called today and told me that my results also show that my iron is TO LOW and we are now going to be more aggressive with handling my anemia. Like I said, it just keeps getting better!

Hopefully you will feel better with iron pills. I noticed a difference right away with my pregnancies however, mine was so low that I never did feel totally awesome but I guess who does when their pregnant?

Hopefully the iron is causing the problems and you'll feel better after getting supplements. You shouldn't feel all dizzy and stuff if your sugar is under control. I'm soooo sorry!! I hope you feel better soon!!

I have another pregnant friend who found out she was anemic, started taking iron and felt a TON better. I know you've got some other issues, but hopefully you'll have more energy with the iron pills. I am so sorry Nikki! Hang in there! We're almost done!

And not to minimize what you're going through, but I just found out another friend who's only 32 weeks is in labor and will have her baby within a day or two. They're just waiting for the steriods to take effect before they turn of the magnesium that's stopping the labor. So while life sucks now, at least Odessa still wants to be inside you! Love you, lady. And I hope your body starts adjusting to the changes you've had to make.

p.s. totally had a dream with you and Kelli last night! I think we were at a Richardson family reunion. Sam and his brothers and sisters were all rehearsing musical numbers......the details are fuzzy now...
