Post Anemia & Pregnancy

I have been anemic for quite awhile. Before I got pregnant I was taking an iron pill in the morning and my prenatal at night and I was right on the line between being anemic and not. Well know that I am pregnant my levels have slipped back down so I was wondering if anyone elses did this. I have talked to my doctors office and they are calling me back Monday to see if they need to do another complete Anemic workup or increase my iron pills. Is anyone else out there anemic and pregnant as well. I am on Ferus Fumarate at 50 mg. Thanx for the help.

I have been anemic before. I used to take iron. I know since I am pregnant now that I get extremely exhausted!! I am not sure if this is normal for me or it is because my iron is low. I also get short of breath easy, so I am guessing it is my iron. I will know more when I go to my first appt. on May 29th.

Sorry if I couldn't be of more help.
Wishing everybody pain-free days ahead!
