    Yay, good news! Seems like iron is always low in pregnancy...I was shocked when the nurse told me they look for it to be from 12-16! Mine is always somewhere between 11.5 and 12.5...I had no idea the top of the range was 16! Yikes!

    Yay for good news! I hope the iron settles well with your stomach. I think it can make pregnant women nauseous.

    I think it should be fine on my stomach. I belive I have taken it before after my 1st delivery but I'm more worried about the constipation. They suggested 1- 2 times a day so I think i'll start off with 1 x and get some high iron foods like total cereal and others.

    After DS my doc just suggested to do total cereal since my levels were just a little down. I think that is easier to handle.
