Thanks for the advice on it! I am already an OJ drinker, so that's easy. As for the bowel stuff, hurray. Just what I need
. My next OBGYN appointment is Monday (week from today) so I will ask her about rerunning the bloodwork to check on my iron. Glad to hear the iron will perk me up...I thought I was just having regular preggo tiredness.
In other news, friends of ours had twin boys on Friday. 35 weeks, each over 4 lb. Had to come out because one twin's placenta was no longer cooperating. They look so big compared to our Violet when she was born (2.5 lb). It was a weird sense of deja vu when we got to see them. They are in the same NICU Violet was in just about 2 years ago. The handwashing, the smells, the sounds...it was like going back in time. The twins are even in the same spot Violet was, and one of the nurses recognized me. She asked me about this baby, and I said - so far so good this time! Let's hope it stays that way...I don't want to relive the NICU again. ONCE WAS ENOUGH!
Severe PE/HELLP - diagnosed 31 weeks, Violet born 32 weeks - April 23, 2010 - 2.5 lb (IUGR). 5 weeks in NICU, home and going strong.
