I'm 9 weeks along and realized that my prenatals don't contain iron! When do I need to take iron or get a prenatal with iron in it??

You should need iron all along. At the beginning I took iron separately. I knew I needed to take iron when I was constipated and only needed an iron tablet every two weeks. Constipation will also occur if you have too much iron ;) Consult your pharmacist too.

I would switch now. I don't know why they even make prenatals without iron. Pretty much as soon as you get pregnant your body needs that extra iron.
