If I See One More Steak....
So I have about 6 weeks of pregnancy left, and my iron levels keep dropping despite any effort I make. I'm now up to two iron pills each day, and as much red meat as I can manage (I refuse to eat liver, as any sane person would - sorry mom.) As you can see by this week's menu, I have scheduled 6 dinners that include beef and hopefully I can squeeze a few beef-laden lunches in there too. My next iron test is in 10 days and I am determined to have my numbers go UP instead of DOWN this time.
I apologize to my chicken-loving friends. I don't have much to offer you right now. Just know that I envy you.
Oh and for those of you wondering what the baby's nursery will look like, I'm thinking of a black and white cow-theme. Just kidding. You know, I bet this little boy will grow up to be a vegetarian. Ha ha.
