My doc emailed me today and said all looked great. They were not able to get good ankle shots or face shots so he wants me to go back in a couple weeks for that. Not sure why ankles are important. The tech saw the face but when she was measuring

  1. Probably they want to look at the ankles just to make sure the bones are formed correctly?

Just to chip in on the iron pill thing - I can't take them because of constipation (I have another condition where there's no way I can afford to be constipated) so instead I eat a diet rich in iron - beef, broccoli, spinach, other green leafy veg, dried apricots...that kind of thing.

Jen,
I'm so glad everything is normal. As for going back, at least you get a peek at your little girl again. I'm on a prescription iron pill & I have no idea what the name of it is. It is very constipating, though. Hopefully if you're on colace, the iron pills won't be too bad for you.

Hi! I highly recomend a natural option. I had very low iron when I was pregnant with Lily-Anne and took pills and my levels didn't budge and I got constipated to boot :p. I used Floridix a liquid iron natural supplement and it worked great! Just take the amount and use OJ as a chaser. Here is some info on it. http://floradixliquidiron.com/ it was also highly recommended by my midwife too. Hope that helps!
