Q:

I'm 36weeks pregnant and my hb is 9.5... is it OK... doctor said me to take iron shot again



Sumira Bhatia

hb should be ideally 11. even my hb was a little low. I had lots of fruits (mostly apples and pomegranate)  which helped but you're already 36 weeks so if your doc says iron shot then I guess not a problem

Shurvi Khamesra

have pomogranate daily, 1 beet root daily, n home made tomato soup daily.
within a week it will increase dont worry

It is advisable to take the iron injection. During birth you will loose blood and this will bring the levels down further. It will cause weakness and post partum recovery will be slower. Even now the last few weeks the growth of the baby will also be slower.
