Your blood volume will begin to increase and will eventually double during pregnancy! Also, keep drinking *tons* of water, eat right and frequently, and have your doctor check the iron in your blood if he/she hasn't already!

Re: dizzy/lightheaded ladies!! :(

I would talk to your doctor right away about that and have them check for anemia. I don't personally know about the safety of iron. I just followed my doctor's advice when he told me to take it. Since you've been anemic before, it's definitely worth asking about. Let me know what they say.
