The doctor has suggested an iron injection which is a high dose and will help boost your iron levels rapidly. Baby needs iron to grow well and 8.5 is on the lower side. Discuss what your doctor means by bed rest. At times it may be complete bed rest and at times you may be allowed to move a little in the house. Follow instructions as it is best for the baby's health and well-being.

dear Somalia
doctor had suggested for blood transfusion
iron is not suitable for me because gastric trouble and indigestion
she suggest bed rest for completion of 37 weeks
