    Hi Ladies,

    wanted to drop by and say hello! congratulations to all the ladies who had their babies!!! i hope mom and babies are doing well

    The past few days were really rough. i have these really random symptoms like chills, extreme fatigue, weakness, stomach aches and loss of appetite. i even passed out in the shower a couple of days ago and hit my face. it was pretty brutal. i went to the doctor's and they did some blood work but there were no signs of infection. I am anemic and am taking iron pills as well. But the past few days have been better. I am getting stronger and feeling much better and hopefully it continues to get better.
    Breastfeeding is going well, but it does take a lot out of me. my daughter is doing well and does get up a couple of times at night but apart from that she is a pretty good baby
    i hope all is well with everyone. love reading the updates and wish all the ladies who are close best of luck and prayers.

    I'm sorry to hear that you had a rough couple of days. I've been having some, myself. I found myself feeding both babies at the same time this morning, which is really hard. Also, I'm so glad that breastfeeding is going well for you. I absolutely hate it. My girl is too small to latch on properly, although she tries and my boy sucks so hard, it hurts. I've just been pumping into a bottle for them. Even then, I only make a few ounces at a time.

    I also tested anemic. What kind of iron pills are you taking, the over the counter ones or prescription strength? I need to start taking mine again. My doctor said that I could go off of a few meds after I had the babies, but he didn't know that I would test low.

    I"m sorry to hear that you aren't feeling well. That must have been scary when you passed out in the shower. I hope you didn't get hurt too badly and that you weren't alone.

    Hang in there Rooni! I used an iron supplement called Floradix Iron Herbs throughout my pregnancy for anemia and it worked really well. If you have constipation with the pills try it out. take care and feel better soon!
