    I'm 30 weeks and just had my first infusion on Saturday. I'm not sure if it's a side effect or cuz im chasing a toddler but I felt more tired that night, and a bit Nauseous the following morning.

    Yea I have to!
    Shouldn’t have major side effects. 
    I asked them to give me IV fluids afterwards for the second one because I also felt super exhausted with the first infusion. That really helped.

    Yes I just finished my third infusion a week ago. But my h h level is 9.1 now. I think that it is still need work. But my doc thought it was better. I am taking slowe fe iron pill in addition to prenatals. For some reason, with this child my iron level has been so low compared to my first baby. I think it’s the prenatals that I bought. Last obgyn prescribed the prenatals for me but this time around I was told to buy any prenatal from over the counter. And little did I know all along the ones I have been taking had no iron in them. Anyhow, I hop your situation got better.
