Had my 16 week appt today. Had blood re drawn to test iron levels. Should know results by Wednesday and if comes back levels lower than beginning of pregnancy I'll have to take 2 iron pills a day with my prenatals. It took dr a while to find heartbeat which scared me as I've bee having dreams of baby not having heartbeat. Turns out she found heartbeat about an inch above pelvic area which proves baby is very very low. Baby's heartbeat was in 160's......still high! I opted out of the high risk blood draw.
Now just have to wait until Jan 28 for gender scan
It's a liquid iron supplement that I took before Everett's birth because my iron was low. It has other vitamins in it so your body can absorb the iron better. They tell you to take iron with vitamin c because it binds the iron to help your boy to absorb it. It worked really well for me.
