Im 20 weeks pregnant, a few weeks ago my obgyn told me my blood work showed i was a little low on iron. I cant remember the number but it was like 2 points lower then the normal range, so not much. My prenatal already contains 27 mg of iron, which Im reading all over the internet is the dosage a pregnant woman should get a day. My obgyn wants me to start taking another iron supplement of an Extra 300 mg now. 300 MG! It just seems an insane amount to me, considering 27 mg is recommended. I know everyone is going to say the doctor knows what she is doing, but im having doubts. I have a feeling in my gut this is way to much, I cant bring myself to take it and havnt yet. The supplement is called pallafer Does anyone think an extra 300 mg of iron is alot? Im just scared too so ive put it off for a while... Any input?
