    Well, i went for my 35/36 week appointment today and the midwife decided to check my blood results from 7 week ago!! turns out i'm aneamic! Surely they should of told me that as soon as the results came back!! Anyways, baby was fine, but when i got up off the bed i went really dizzy and my vision went blurred so i had to lye down till i was feeling alright again! Went to the doctors for iron tablets and by the time i got home i had an excrutiating migrane. I suffer from them really badly but normally only get them once every few months. This was really bad though, my vision went in one eye, my hand went numb and i felt really confuzed, then the almighty headache comes on! Really scary but i've been having them since i was small so pretty used to them now. Anywys i've been in bed asleep since 11 o clock, got up at 6, still feel really poorly and can't keep anything down. Erghhh i feel like poo...hopefully tomorrow will be a better day!!! x

    yehh the vision and numbness is normal, its just classed as a severe migrane although its really scary!! ive just managed to have some broccoli, sprouts green beans and two small pieces of frying steak which is meant to be good for iron, hopefully it will stay down. Going to get back in bed now hopefully i'll be feeling better tomorrow!! x

    Hope your having a better day today, the same happened to me, i kept fainting and blacking out, being sick, it was awful. I had to go to the doctor and she found out my iron was only at 9. When i told the midwife she finally got round to checking my bloods from weeks earlier. So basically i could of been on iron tablets and getting better weeks before. xx
