scarlet - September 9

yay, i'm 3 weeks pregnant!!! but when i found out, i was kind of worried because i am anaemic. should i really be worried?

 

aimee - September 9

was it iron-deficiency anemia? do you have anemia prior to getting pregnant?

 

cleotilde - September 9

when you are pregnant you may eventually develop anemia.

 

Vera Viel - September 9

yes it is, and it may be very dangerous because your blood doesn't have enough healthy red blood cells to carry oxygen to the tissues and to your baby while developing.

 

erika - September 10

it could have developed while you are pregnant.

 

felice - September 10

there several types of anemia which develops during pregnancy, it could be iron deficiency, folate deficiency, or vitamin b12 deficiency. visit your OB asap.

 

glenda - September 10

it doesn't choose a victim, all pregnant women are at risk for becoming anemic and that is why it is important for pregnant women to get a regular checkup.

Take note dear, you really need more iron and folic acid than usual.

 

ladybug - September 10

Having anemia during pregnancy is very risky. It may cause a preterm labor and your baby may also develop anemia.

 

charlotte - September 11

there is also a chance that the development of the baby will have a delay.

be ready for your first prenatal appointment, make sure to have a hemoglobin test to make sure.

 

divine - September 11

as early as now, take some iron supplement and folic acid supplement together with your prenatal vitamins.

you shant only focus on vitamins and supplements, most importantly focus on foods that are rich with the needed nutrients like dairy products, eggs and meat.
