My body always seems to have a problem with iron. For as long as I can remember I’ve been anaemic. Add pregnancy to the mix and I have a problem.
At first they gave me iron tablets to take. Anyone who takes iron tablets know that they don’t tend to play nice with your bowels. Gross! So they suggested taking an iron supplement called “Spatone” which apparently would be gentler on my bowels. So far it definitely seems better for me.
I have to take two sachets a day preferably with vitamin c as it helps to absorb quicker in my body. However, orange juice has a tendency to give me migraines. Luckily, I haven’t had one yet. But my golly orange juice has been giving me heartburn!! Thank goodness it’s only one glass a day.
Apparently pregnancy is the most natural thing a woman can do. Maybe so… But the symptoms and side effects of pregnancy are the most unnatural thing ever!!
