11 + Tums

So I failed my iron test again. Apparently low is 35 and I'm now sitting at a 30.5 (which is barely up from the 30 two weeks ago.) To get my levels up things are being kicked up into high gear and more pills are being added to my daily regime. The amount of pills was getting to be so much that I had to go out and get an old lady pill box to keep things straight. Counting all the vitamin, minerals and supplements I'm on, we are at a whopping 11 plus the Tums I take to keep the heartburn manageable. Keeping in mind that I take some of these 11 items multiple times a day.

My day consists of:


Morning:
Vitamin E - helps with skin and ligament stretching as well as placenta attach/detach
Vitamin C - iron absorption and immune system
Vitamin B50 - emotional balance and assimilate proteins
Floradix - extra iron supplement
Ferrous Glutamate - extra iron supplement
Evening Primrose Oil - softens the cervix

Lunch:
Ultramin - facilitates baby bone growth and aids in iron absorption
Ferrous Glutamate
Floradix
Evening Primrose Oil

Evening:
Vitimain E
Vitamin C
Floradix

Bedtime:

Ultramin
Flaxseed or Fish Oil - for DHA
Evening Primrose Oil
Ferrous Glutamate

Though out the day:

Dr. Christopeher's Prenatal - increase hormones and tones uterus
Liquid Chlorophyll - aids in increasing hemoglobin

I have officially become a walking GNC store.

That is some serious vitamin intake. That old lady pill box is perfect for it. No other way to keep track.
