I'll take being tired...

I am borderline anemic and have been very very tired lately. It doesn't matter how much I sleep, how well I eat or how much or little I do, I'm tired! So I decided to get a multi vitamin with iron to try and help out with the tiredness. I read that calcium can make it hard for iron to be absorbed by the body. So I decided to take it with breakfast this morning since I don't usually have milk with it. I took the vitamin while my bread was toasting and I wouldn't recommend that, lol.

I ended up puking in the kitchen garbage can just after buttering my toast :P

I'm thinking tomorrow I'll eat first or better yet, just sleep all day and let the kids trash the house and my hunny can clean it up while I sleep some more :P

Yikes!
Unfortunately, I know how you feel. I once took my prenatals before going to the gym and had only eaten 1 slice of toast. Apparently that wasn't enough. I was soon puking in the women's locker room. (and I wasn't even pg yet) I've never been able to take prenatals w/out a full meal. I'm pretty sure it's the high amount of iron in them that does that.
So eat a full meal, then take them. And hopefully they'll work really well!!!

Take care of yourself!

Take the vitamin before you go to bed. It's the only way I can stomach them, even NOT pregnant.

That's so frustrating! I would also try taking it before bed...hopefully it will work!

I know I'm coming in late here, but try SlowFe (not an off-brand). I get WAY anemic when I'm pg and that's the only thing that works. Take it with an orange or OJ without calcium. It should up in in a week or two--seriously. Good luck!
