  • yeah, I was anemic during my pregnancy but my doctor prescribed an iron pill for me, with my first daughter I just took one a day but with my youngest daughter my blood was soo low I had to take an iron pill3 times a day, you should ask him which kind, I'm surprised hes not prescribing one for you.

  • I'm anemic all the time, but severely anemic when I'm pregnant. I take a prescription iron pill, so I can't help you but low iron during pregnancy is very common.
