    I have had low iron in all pregnancys. I passed out at a wedding when i was pregnant with paige and had to leave a cinema when i was carrying jake due to feeling dizzy. You will most likely be tired as well hun tablets are good though although you must take them or they end up sending you off to have iron injections :( x

    I was told I had low iron from my booking in appointment. Got a letter through post telling me to get iron tablets off doctor asap. Took them for a month or so and got my iron levels rechecked and they're perfectly fine now.

    I didn't do anything specific to help them regulate, I tried eating a bit of extra veg like broccoli with my dinners, and also cereals with iron in them. So I think the tablets did most of the work :)
