6 weeks pregnant and high iron?

I just went to my local clinic to have my wic done since I am pregnant. They did the finger prick and told me that i am high average for my iron level. Is too much iron a bad thing? what does it do to the baby? I'm very confused! Please help me!

  • You can get iron posioning if its to high, but they would have told you what to do if it was so you should be ok.
