    At the doctors today. :( blood pressure was high and was told I'm anemic and need to talk iron pills.

    Who else suffers anemia?

    I haven't had my results yet but just think, once you start taking the pills, you will have more energy, etc :)

    I'm anemic too. Not just In pregnancy either but that's by the by.
    It's very common in pregnancy cause baby takes what it needs and leaves us short. There is lots available out there too if the iron pills don't agree with you.
    Like Spatone, ferriglobin and surprisingly raspberry leaf tablets are good for iron.

    anemia is super common, tons of women have it, pregnant or not. the pills should make a big difference

    super common.. the iron tablets may make you constipated so make sure you drinks heaps of water... lots of fibre and avoid tea as it inhibits iron absorption. As for the blood pressure.. excersize , yoga... meditation... and rest works..good diet... dont worry :)
