Should I be worried or just think they're a bit rude? I had my blood taken on Oct 31st and midwife said it said low but its not low for a pregnant woman so its fine. Should I just go by that? I've been sleepy lately but put that down to being 31 weeks

probably wouldn't hurt to take some iron tablets, especially if it was low last time.

I wouldn't be offended about it though, my mum said the same and it turned out I was anaemic!

Well if you have been tested them ignore

Both times I have been pregnant I get the same old 'you look so pale/anemic' bullshit.

My skin is naturally very very pale; but medical professionals don't listen to me. I have a blood test and guess what? Results come back normal 🙄
