Answer: Hi dear, yes u should take iron tablet . Iron will help you to up your hemoglobin levels and help in organ and cell development of the baby. U should drink at least eight 12-ounce glasses of water a day. This will help keep your bowels soft and moving smoothly through your digestive tract. Try breaking up your daily food intake into five or six smaller meals to help with constipation relief.
