I would see doc if you are feeling rough.

I think you need to see your GP really. Iron supplements can cause vomiting/tummy problems if the dose is too high. Are you having any other symptoms with the headaches? Aversion to bright light? Limb pain? Have you had headaches like this before? Are your feet swollen?

when did you last have your blood pressure taken?

watch for signs of pre eclampsia.

agree with the others - suggest you phone your GP tomorrow for peace of mind. Hopefully they will take your blood pressure, check over your med dose and reassure you that everything is fine
Get some sleep! tc

How are you feeling today, mumofdjandbabies?
I hope you've been checked over by a doctor or midwife.
