Just found out I am anemic again!

I just found out today that I am anemic again and have to start taking iron supplements. I had to do this during my first pregnancy too. I hated taking the iron the first time around so I am not looking forward to it this time either. It bothers my stomach a whole lot. Is this just the norm for some pregnant people? My mom was anemic when pregnant also.

Re: Just found out I am anemic again!

I had to be put on an iron supplement also (Slow FE). I dont know if that's what you're taking but it's suppose to be really easy on your system and slow release. I haven't had any problems with it. My doctor said it is not uncommon for a pregnant woman to be anemic.

Hmmmm, the bottle or packaging doesn't say anything about being slow release. Maybe I could request that form instead? I don't mind to take the iron and know it's better for the baby and I if I do but it just gives me so many problems.

Re: Just found out I am anemic again!

I am anemic in general and I take slow releasing iron. The bottle will say that specifically on the front. Ohterwise you option which is always better is to try to not rely on a pill and eat iron rich foods.
