When i went to the doctors for my checkup where they ask the MILLION questions about your history, family, and what not, i found out i was anemic during the end of my pregnancy with my first child! Yet, they NEVER told me this during my first pregnancy! I know what this means, but what are the risks and what could happen and how would i become anemic? And why wouldnt they tell me this WHILE i was pregnant and they discovered this? I only found out because she went in my chart and looked over my info from my previous pregnancy during the "meeting"

Be sure to eat a vitamin C source with your iron source; the C increases the absorption of the iron.
