Helpful Tips for Mom at 29 Weeks Pregnant

You should make sure that you are eating at least 30 milligrams of iron each day during the second trimester and third trimester of your pregnancy. Iron is important during pregnancy because it can:
 
  • Replenish the red blood cell supply
  • Accommodate the demand created by increased blood volume
  • Provide the baby with adequate iron stores for the months after birth.
     
Iron deficiency is common during pregnancy. Therefore, healthcare providers will recommend that moms have blood tests to check their iron level. Your doctor will likely prescribe an iron supplement if he or she feels that your iron level is too low.
