I have one more question regarding pregnancy & babies... we have decided to start trying early next year, but my doctor mentioned something at my last visit and it just came to my mind. I am slightly anaemic at the moment, with haemoglobin level around 10 and ferritin only 3. She has started me on another course of iron tablets and folic acid and mentioned I should get my blood levels up before getting pregnant. How long will it take before the blood levels will back to normal again?
I am slightly worried that if I were to get pregnant with low iron levels, could it do anything to damage the baby? I am not seeing the GI doctor until February, so thought maybe I should make an appointment with my own doc to speak with him?
Apologies for the questions, but I am just slightly confused at the moment Thanks X
