Dr. just called and explained that my glucose test yesterday (28 weeks)revealed I have a very low iron count, and diagnosed me as having Anemia? :S She told me to pick up Ferrous Gluconate and wants me to take 300 mg 2x daily... just googled this medicine and it's not advised to take while pregnant... Wondering if anyone has expeiriance with this? And maybe would it be safer just to take 2 prenatals daily?? I haven't noticed any side effects besides being tired..which I attributed to my last trimester.. Please if anyone can give any advise, I'm going to pick the meds up now - as I assume Dr. knows best.. but would like to hear from other mothers who have expeirianced this? Also should I be worried about baby???
