I've been taking a multivitamin since i have been ttc and it contains iron, I am currently 11 weeks and still taking it. Maybe you could get something like that at the pharmacy? Have you been to the doc about low iron? He/She should be able to advise you better if you need extra iron to that.

I would ask to have your iron levels checked first. I didn't need iron on last pregnancy as levels never dipped and so far on this one I haven't either, even though I've been feeling quite tired too.
