not sure if there are any doctors or midwifes on here would like a little bit of advice.
My last pregnancy was not good I had really bad morning sickness (I have with all my pregnancies) I kept having pupations in my chest they said low iron but took bloods when I walked I felt like I was walking into something as if I was stopped but knew I was still walking (trying to describe it not sure if I have done a good job lol) can not remember what week I was when they found out but my red blood cells where 4.8 and they said it was really low when they phoned me to go back in I was famous lol that is what they said on the ward as they had never delt with anyone like it even my consultant was confused I had loads of tests they took 2-3 weeks to figer it out then a week on B12 vitamin injections to sort it when I got there they said I was lucky to be alive I could have had a heart attack so I was so scared and they induced me at 38 weeks just incase I bled to death
Well to the question could it happen again if I got pregnant? how could I prevent it if it can? many thanks

im not a dr or midwife (I'm a nurse) but I would suggest getting a full blood screen from your gp, explain to them everything. They may advise vitamins or supplements.
hope this helps

thank you should have said nurse to.
they did all they blood work and could not not find what was wrong for 2-3 weeks then had the b12 vit jabs they still did not know what it was and I felt so much better just wondered if it would happen again I just thought I would throw it out there first before I went to the doctors . I forgot to say I had a blood transfusion
