Following on from Mama Doras query on iron...could some of you just let me know how often you are getting blood taken? None has been taken from me in a while and i'm wondering is this OK?
Got mine taken at first hospital visit at just under 14wks,got a blood count done on monday to check iron levels....I probably should get them more often as im O Negative,only found out on Monday
So far just had one - around the 12 -week mark. Getting more done this week at 26 weeks. No idea after that.
Oh I did have mine done in January just before my BFP confirmation,was just a check up with GP on hormone levels etc...maybe this doesnt really matter sorry
[color=indigo:3es95j31]I didn't realise that we got more done!!
So far I've just had mine done at 12 weeks!![/color:3es95j31]
I got mine done at first gyne appointment, and asked yesterday, they said that they dont usually check iron until around the 30 week mark. She only did mine yesterday cos i pushed her to do it. Just as well as gyne not looking for me to come back to see him until week 34.
Thanks for all the replies, I feel better now as I haven't had any done since first gynae appt either, and I thought I might be the only one...
Thanks for reassurance!
