Iron & multivitamin: You can safely take 30 mg of iron at one time. Depending on how anemic you are, you may need to take it 3 times/day. Take it with food. If you get constipation, take a fiber laxative like metamucil. Also take multivitamins. For the sake of your and your baby's health, you should be under the care of a doctor. Wish you good health and a healthy baby!
