Blood test results
Well the RE office called today and the nurse from there wanted to let me know the results of me and DH's bloodwork and a couple of other details before march.First and foremost DH was fine in his bloodwork. But there were 2 small things with mine , first they said my iron is low and asked if am I taking an iron supplement? I of course answered yes I am since there is iron in my prenatal vitamins that I have been on for the last 10 years but also I was prescibed a separate over the counter supplement about 3 years ago or so when my PCP figured out that I had low ferrous sulfate levels. My hair was falling out like crazy, I mean really falling out. And after months of them not being sure what it was they figured out that it was my stored iron (ferrous sulfate) not my regular iron levels. Well now it seems that my regular levels are dropping too.So I need to eat iron rich foods, if anyone has any ideas , since my body doesn't seem to be absorbing the supplement as much as it should.I need to do this along with taking my supplements.My endometriosis which causes very heavy and painful AF's is to blame for my iron troubles.They were not overly worried but said I should work on my iron,doesn't affect the timeline for IVF but they just want me to be as healthy as possible. The second thing is I guess it showed that I show low immunity to rubella so I need to go get re vaccinated for that before a potential pregnancy.So I am going to see if they do that cheap at the health department since we do not have health insurance any longer.She said the latest I could have it done by was next friday.So I will try for monday or tuesday just to get it out of the way.YEAH another poke!!! We also set up a potential timeline for transfer which would land us at about March 1st,2nd or 3rd .Wow that is getting close.Of course it will all depend on my AF in February but they have been exactly 28 days since the clomid , go figure!
