Is anyone else anemic? I just started taking an iron supplement (ferrous succinate) and am told to take 200mg. per day. Seems like a lot! Anyone else?

I am low in iron but not anemic. As your pregnancy progresses, you will become more and more iron deficient so make sure you keep taking your vitamins. Your doctor may also up your intake as you get farther along.

I went in and got that blood count test yesterday...It was 12.2 and the lady said that since I'm 34 weeks as long as it's over 11 it's good...I don't eat a lot of meat...I eat a lot of whole grain foods that are rich in iron.
