I am 29 weeks pregnant, 5'4 and 131 pounds. I've gained approximately 6 pounds since the beginning of my pregnancy. I do not have a history of anemia. I took my glucose screen test 2 days ago and my sugar was 162. I am now being told to take the 3 hour test, which I plan to do. I was also told I am anemic. I take Solgar prenatals every day along with folate and fish oil with DHA and EPH (is that right?!). I feel wonderful and my uterus was measuring at 29 weeks when I went in for my 28 week appointment.
My question is, if I take vitamins regulary, how can I be anemic? Is it an absorption problem? What is the possibiilty that I will have GD? Thanks.
