I finally came out of my seven month cloud of exhaustion and fatigue to realize for a minute that I might be low on iron. The iron pills I found in my box of medicine also may have reminded me that I have been low on iron every single time in my life that I have been tested for it. I was quite low after Kai was born and I took them until my six week checkup when they told me I could stop. (without testing me)
So I started taking iron pills a week ago and I feel like a different person. I still don’t jump out of bed early in the morning all bright eyed and bushy tailed, but I feel so much better and can make it through the day without feeling like I am going to crash.
I know I should have gone to see my doctor first, but I have been through it so many times I am pretty sure that was my problem. I will see how I do for the next few weeks and then go in and have my iron levels checked. In the meantime I am hoping to wear the belt out on the treadmill now that I have some energy!
