  • im not sure about being anemic just cuz i think every woman is. but try putting your vitamins next to your tooth brush or make up or something that u do eveeryday so u wont forget. it helps me when i do that.

  • I don't think being mildly anemic will cause you to miscarry but it could make your symptoms worse-the fatigue and nausea. But I'm not really sure. The only time I WASN'T anemic was when I was pregnant because for some magical reason my iron levels went up-I'm guessing it was because I ate so many veggies. I DIDNT take prenatals when I was pregnant because I was so nauseated my midwife wanted me to just eat and keep down food.
