Because of a number of circumstances (pumping way over what my DS needs for mos, vomiting all the time pregnancy, stress of baby w/medical issues) it seems I'm anemic. I think it's pretty reliable, not just medical freak-outy-ness - under my eyelids are pale, I bruise SO easily, etc.

SO - how can I get more iron? I know it's notorioulsly hard to absorb. I take a good, food based multi vitamin, eat of of an iron skillet. And I'm working on downregulating my milk supply.

I am basically an omnivore at this point - I'll take any suggestions.
