Well, got a phone call from my doctor's office today. The results of those $600 blood labs came in from last week - turns out I'm crazy anemic. My H&H (or hemoglobin & hematocrit) levels are toooooo low for only being 15 weeks pregnant...like SCARY low (like if I was my own patient in the hospital I would probably consider giving myself a transfusion!). Except, I'm not sick, nor am I in the hospital....so it's really nothing to freak out over...I just have to take Iron supplements a couple times a day now. Easy fix.
This explains my incredible exhaustion. Pregnancy is suppose to make you tired anyway...and well...residency is one heck of a tiring experience in itself...so I just thought I was being silly and I just needed to perk myself up. Turns out my extreme fatigue wasn't imagined...it's in my blood. Ha!
Oh pregnancy...you are soooo silly.
