Hi ladies. I havent posted here in a while so I hope its ok Im posting a question.
So my iron levels came back the other day with a hemocrit of 31.7 and hemoglobin of 10.8. I think this makes me borderline anemic.
Here is my concern. I dont want to take too much iron if I am borderline. My prenatal is 27mg and I have been taking 45mg slow fe every OTHER day.
I just keep thinking the 72mg of iron is WAY too much and I have read it can hurt the baby if you take too much.
What were your levels and what do you ladies think? Im driving myself nuts on what to do about these iron suppliments and if I need them or not
