Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The increase in blood plasma volume that is not proportional to the increase in the volume of red blood cells in pregnant women often causes the mother to experience anemia. Therefore, anemia during pregnancy does not always indicate a disease. Alternatively, it is part of a physiological process and is harmless.
Due to the physiological conditions of pregnant women that make them prone to anemia, the standard diagnosis of anemia in pregnant women will be different from other people in general. The normal range limit of hemoglobin levels in the blood in women who are pregnant in the second trimester tends to be lower than in women who are pregnant in the first and third trimesters. This is due to the disproportion between the increase in plasma volume and red blood cells that was most significant at this age.
Apart from physiological factors as mentioned above, anemia during pregnancy can also be triggered by:
Inadequate nutritional intake, which is associated with decreased appetite and frequent vomiting during pregnancy Increased nutritional needs to produce more red blood cells for both mother and fetus Anemia during pregnancy can cause mothers to experience weakness, fatigue, dizziness , pale, shortness of breath, palpitations, chest pain, pallor, cold hands and feet, drowsiness, difficulty concentrating, and various other complaints. Anemia is certainly dangerous for the continued development of the baby in the womb.
Therefore, if signs of anemia appear in pregnant women, it is advisable to immediately consult an obstetrician for further treatment.
That's the explanation from us. For more details, try to consult directly with an obstetrician.
I hope this helps.
