Sheeba Vijesh

why are you not taking iron!! you could get anaemic... have all the supplements prescribed to you...

i was having problem taking iron so my doctor advised to stop it. i am taking calcium.

is it happening due to iron deficiency ?

Sheeba Vijesh

iron deficiency can cause tiredness... how is your haemoglobin level? consider having lots of dark green leafy vegetables like spinach, drumstick leaves, soaked black raisins and dates. they are rich in iron... pregnancy can make you feel tired as well, consider talking to your doc. about this..

dear jyothi, plz take iron without fail. it is more necessary to u and ur baby. plz consult doc once regarding ur tiredness. haemoglobin level must be high...take iron rich foods.. if tablets u cant make it with diet...
