Importance of Iron in your pregnancy ... 4

It affects your pregnancy

It's normal to feel worried about being diagnosed with anemia, but mild anemia that's diagnosed and treated early shouldn't pose a problem during your pregnancy. Most experts agree that anemia in pregnancy is more of a concern if it's severe, untreated, or lasts a long time.
If your provider advises you take iron supplements, and you take them as prescribed, your condition should improve. If you have a more severe case of anemia, you may be treated with IV iron supplements, or possibly even a blood transfusion if your hemoglobin falls to 6 g/dL or less.
If you have severe anemia, and it doesn't get better with initial treatment, your healthcare provider may refer you to a specialist for care. You may need to see a hematologist or a maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) specialistto figure out if another condition is causing your anemia.

When you have a low level of iron, you may find yourself getting more tired or fatigued more easily during your pregnancy. Pregnancy can be exhausting anyway, so take extra care of yourself if you're feeling the added strain of having low iron.

My advise
1....   You need to protect yourself from anemia and also protect your child from iron deficiency
2...    Your child need Iron to form his blood
3...    Having severe iron-deficiency anemia may even increase the risk of stillbirth and newborn death.
4...   mild iron deficiency shouldn't affect your baby while you're pregnant. But research also suggests that mild iron-deficiency anemia that goes untreated and becomes more severe during pregnancy – especially in the first two trimesters – is linked to an increased risk of a baby being born with a low birth weight.
5...  Plenty of Iron is available in your vegetables and fruits.  It will not harm to you and your child.  So eat well and have healthy child
