Hello Icalsa, Thank you for the question.
Have you ever seen a gynecologist for further tests? Have you ever had further blood tests? When a woman is pregnant, blood tests usually show a hemoglobin level that is lower than normal (anemia). Hemoglobin is the part of red blood cells that binds oxygen. This lower hemoglobin level can occur due to dilution / dilution of the blood because the amount of body fluids increases during pregnancy (the amount of body fluid is greater than the number of red blood cells). Thus, this low hemoglobin level is a relatively normal finding. However, anemia in pregnancy can also be caused by other conditions such as iron deficiency, folic acid deficiency, or vitamin B12 deficiency. Anemia in pregnancy can lead to premature birth, delayed baby development, and anemic babies. Therefore, you should consult with an obstetrician first. The doctor will examine your uterus and perform further blood tests to find out if this anemia is based on a cause. The doctor will recommend further treatment after knowing the cause.
Regarding the labor process, if you have anemia due to other causes, you may be advised to undergo labor in the hospital so that if you experience heavy bleeding due to this labor, further treatment can be immediately given (can be in the form of drugs or transfusions. blood). You are also advised to keep eating a balanced nutritious diet.
Hope this information is helpful.
