Re: Low Iron Help?????????

did the doctor not give you any prenatal vitamins? I have had borderline iron for years, and the prenatals have really helped get them up. Maybe if you make sure to take them with food, it will help the nausea. One girl on the Prenatal Vitamins post said that she eats half a full meal, takes her vitamin, and eats the other half immediately. I have better luck taking them with large meals too. Drinking lots of water helps iron absorb better. Also limiting your caffeine is a good idea because caffeine inhibits iron absorption. Foods with iron are also a good idea. Any dark green veggies are high in iron, and so is red meat.
