Ive been taking my prenatals wrong the whole time?

okay im 31 weeks pregnant I take prenavite prenatal pills and ferrous sulfate pills. I take the prenavite once a day and the ferrous sulfate once a day... I just read the sulfate bottle and I was supposed to be taking it twice a day... Do you think it will cause any problems?

  • nope just means you might not be getting enough iron if you're anemic.

  • Its not going to hurt you or baby but, as someone who is anemic, start taking the iron and (if you are anemic) you will REALLY see a difference in your level of energy.
