Low iron?

So I started my miscarriage last Wednesday. The bleeding was fairly heavy for the first 2 1/2 days. It's since slowed down, and it is now dark brown for the most part, with some pink/red mixed in. I am thinking that it might be done fairly soon. Anyhow, the last few days I've been having some mild dizziness, shaking with the dizziness, and nausea with it as well. It only happens about once a day or so... but it lasts a few minutes. Was talking to my cousin, said that it could be low iron. Anyone experienced this?

I've been drinking spinach smoothies, but haven't had one in 2-3 days, and no longer want them, as they taste horrible. I had a steak lastnight and the night before for dinner.

Any idea of anything else I can eat to help with the iron?

Use z cast iron skillet. Eat mushrooms. Mix up your leafy greens. I would buy a variety, not just spinach.

That's my biggest problem. I don't mind spinach, as long as I can't really taste it. In the smoothies, I can't really taste it because I mix it with strawberries, and blueberries. I was thinking about cooking some spinach, and then mixing it with spaghetti sauce, and making spaghetti. I could also add mushrooms to that.

I've had great luck with hemaplex pills. I posted last week about them so the thread is prob a page or 2 back.

Sorry for your loss

It could be low iron, but I think I would get in to the doctor to rule out infection.
Could also be that you came down with a virus or something at the same time.
Sorry for your loss!

Re: Low iron?

When I had my first miscarriage, I got really dizzy at times as well. It helps to drink Chlorphyll to boost it (it doesn't hurt you either, if your iron is fine). You put a few drops to a teaspoon in a cup of water a few times a day (the bottle will have directions). It is very dark green and tastes a like mint to me. It really helps. You can get chlorophyll from natural/health food stores.

((hugs)).

I think the symptoms started too soon after to be an infection, honestly. I don't have fever or anything, or even feel bad. I just get dizzy spells every now and then. In fact, I haven't really had anything wrong today, besides just being tired. I will definitely talk to the doctor though, thank you.
