Are these safe? I have a B12 deficiency and get an injection every 3mths.
id think its very important to have them any vitamin deficiency is unsafe for baby but any real risks you are best to discuss with yout mw xx
I read about someone who did have deficiency but baby didn't so they had to stop the injections pending tests...outcome never got posted. Ill discuss with GP xx
You could get your level checked to see if you need it for while your pg?
Unfortunately I can't absorb B12 any other way due to my stomach not producing intrinsic factor so my levels need topping up frequently or I'm exhausted & run down. The above instance could be an unusual one xx
I have this too and get my injections ever 8 weeks. Your midwife will regularly check your blood and do a full blood count and increase the frequency of the b12 injections if you require it. The injections are totally safe for your baby.
Thanks Michelle, I'm relieved to hear that!
I've just noticed your signature I'm sorry for your loss *hugs*
There are foods that encourage your body to make your own b12. The likes of all greens and the darker the better and
Nori/seaweed. But spinach is great too. There's a lot of research I did on b12 about a year ago and the deeper I looked the more of a myth it appeared.
Do you have a link? I'd be interested to read. They tried me on supplements first to test my diet but the supplements didn't work so it means I'm not absorbing the b12 as I should be and the doc said this is because my stomach isn't producing intrinsic factor hence the injections xx
I have to leave nowao won't b online til later I will post for u then x
