Well, got the results of my blood tests done on Friday and they showed no signs of GD but some slight anemia. I don't eat red meat, haven't for years, and don't plan to start now. I've been taking prenatal supplements almost daily since early pregnancy, and there was no indication of any anemia before now. Anyway, I'm not too worried-- from what I've been told the fact that I'm anemic doesn't mean the baby's not getting what he needs but that he's taking from some of what I need. I've had this in the past, as a teen a few years after I stopped eating meat, and managed to correct the problem. My doc's prescribing an iron supplement and I think between that and beefing up (no pun intended) the B-12 and iron in my diet through other means I'll get myself back where I need to be.
