Low Iron – joyous!

Low Iron really is a killjoy, I know it is a natural side-effect of pregnancy for a lot of women and to be fair combined with the Ulcerative Colitis (even if I haven't been flaring it still causes problems) it's probably not that surprising that at my latest pregnancy check-up my Iron levels were low.… Continue reading Low Iron – joyous!

Week 23 @ Target: and we yoyo again!

So I started off the┬ámonth well and I go in on the second week feeling pretty alright - not perfect admittedly, but alright and have put on 2.5lbs!!!! So that made me pretty annoyed if I am honest, however it did spur me to get on it and organise my week. I wrote out a… Continue reading Week 23 @ Target: and we yoyo again!
