Yep, every pregnancy bad for me. Make sure you're taking vitamin C with the iron, it needs it to absorb it properly

Be cautious with what you take as iron as inorganic (in other words iron that's created and synthethised in a lab) can cause toxic stores. Because iron doesn't come out of our systems but is used up or stored and with inorganic iron not 100% of it can be used by our bodies it becomes a store that over time can become toxic. There's a bunch of research out there on it.

I've been anemic for 14 years. Watch out when taking supplements as they can make you very nauseous and constipated. Stool softeners are allowed and I used to take the pills before bed and definitely on a full stomach.
