I have just had my second set of bloods done (at 29 weeks) and despite being told I had 'phenomenal' haemoglobin levels after my first tests I have now been told I a low in iron and prescribed supplements of 210mg per day. I have also got calcium + vitamin D tablets and omega 3 cod liver oil tablets, but on reading the leaflet for the iron supplement it advises not to take with calcium.... anyone else taking these combinations too, it's my first baby and I keep reading how at this time it's bones are absorbing more calcium and getting harder, yet I also know how important the iron is for producing enough blood! So confused, do I take just the iron or persevere with both?!
