I became anemic with my third baby and was placed on an iron suppliment. My baby girl is 8 months now and I am still pretty anemic. I am taking a B-complex vit and still the iron but i am still tired all the time and all I want to do is sleep. What suggestions do any of you mamas out there have to get my energy back that I long for so badly?

I understand bing severly anemic from a babythat thinks yo don't need it. LOL For me I take Feno- Sequel fo my iron suppplement. Your body absorbs more of it. I also added green tea, gensing, and Sam-e. It helpd keep my energy level up while my iron stabalized. I will warn you it took me 2 years before my blood work came back normal. It takes a while to rebuild iron because as I am sure you know if you take more than is directed you can get iron poisoning. I am also purchased a Juice man Jr and started juicing all my fruit and vegetables. I have seen it do wonders for people that have health issues that take a long time to fix.
The reasn I started juiing was becase my mom had abnormal blood work come back and someone suggested it. Th doctors wanted to put her on meds and she isn't really a big on meds. She stated doing this eveyday and within 2 monthes her blood work cae back completely normal. I love it because it helps me balanced.

I know the feeling. I have four of my own and they have friends it is like the community center here. LOL Make sure also to eat as much leafy greens the dark greens. If not your favorite I can send you a few recipes that even my kids will eat. Rest as much as you can. Happy Mother's Day

Thank yo so much for your input!! Your suggestions are definitely worth trying! I was anemic during and after my second son but they never caught it until my third and final baby and realized I probably been anemic atleast threw my 2nd and 3rd if not my 1st baby too! I do remember after the 2nd, it took a long time to get that energy back, I believe it was almost two years, i don't want the same affect this time, I don't have the patience and my life is entirely too busy to sit around and wait for it to happen =) Thank you again for your suggestions, I will start trying them right away!
