I'm 30 week pregnant.  today I have parental visit to doctor.Doctor check my hb...then my hb is only 8 gram....then they advice me to take 6 injection of iron... is it anything serious


As long as your doctor doesn't say anything is serious, do not worry. :) take a deep breath and not worry at all

it is important you take iron injections as your HB is very low. it is not so serious that you panic but it is a must to be taken.

Low iron levels are very common during pregnancy and they need to be taken care of as iron contributes to the baby's growth and well being while in the uterus. Iron injections are very similar to iron pills except they are more concentrated and a higher dose. Pills will need longer to increase the hb levels whereas with injections the results are almost immediate. There is no cause for concern and you can safely go ahead and take the shots.

at this stage iron fluctuate for some...Please follow doctor's advice....nothing to worry try and eat iron and calcium rich diet too.  try and have one lemon a day that help in iron absorption from tge food we take.....be happy about everything as that's the key of healthy life
