have just bought Spatone fron Boots.com - it's on 3 for 2 offer. If you buy 6, it will keep you going for a little while.
Buy a few nappies and maternity pads and stuff and you'll get free delivery as well
Well, anything really (hence the [weird emoticon] thing) - I know that iron tablets are hardly drugs! But having taken iron in pg previously I also know what it does to me and tbh that is a side effect I want to avoid at all costs.
Low iron levels make it more likely that you will have a post partum bleed and harder for you to recover from any blood loss, plus anything that makes you more tired in pregnancy is to be avoided! But you are right to question it as there is a lot of debate about how low is low and whether women should be taking iron and at what level. If it is very, very low near to delivery it make be recommeded that you have an infusion.
Please take something ! I was a bit anaemic towards the end of each of my 4 pregnancies in spite of an excellent diet. Neither Spatone nor Floradix will make you constipated I promise. I've tried both.
