Re: Shortness of breath - at end of first trimester...
WOW 17.9!!! Mine was 10 to begin with and even with taking iron is down to 7.8 so I'm going to have to start getting WAY more aggressive with what I'm taking!

Funny if that is it though because I remember my level at my first appointment was 17.9... the midwife actually commented that I had "the iron level of a man". That was when I was drinking green smoothies with about 3 cups of spinach a day, but I can't handle that being pregnant anymore - the cold of the smoothie now that fall is here won't go down well, and that's a lot of liquid to get down at once.
