My wife is pregnant this month,I would like to know what should be the range of Hb for pregnant women.
5months back her Hb was 7.8
That is below ideal limits.
Hemoglobin of above 12 is considered normal; however it bothers most doctors when the count falls below 8.
She had medicated with some iron injections
I understand her doctors concern now, iron injections are definitely needed now.
What was her current hemoglobin value?
We haven't checked that yet,but I believe it will be 8-9 as she was taking continuously pomegranate & tomato juice
I hope her hemoglobin has improved, but talk to her OBGYN doctor about whether or not to retest hemoglobin.
She should continue iron supplements such ferium XT along with dietary supplements, unless contraindicated.
Do you have any more queries?
Did you follow what I said?
Ok,we just got confirmation from Doctor that she is pregnant and due to contentious vomiting we were unable to proceed for any other test,also Doctor didn't said anything about other test,she wrote tablets to control vomitiong and energy tabs
Could you please refer some good Doctor in Vijayanagara location.
I don't think her vomiting will interfere with testing.
You should follow up with her gynecologist.
Is that be done now only, she is only 2weeks pregnant?
These tests are not immediate requirments.
But are generally done by most gynecologist before 6 to 8 weeks.
If you are not aware of any OBGYN doctors at your location, then I shall try searching for one. Personally I do not have any references.
Do you have any other questions?
Thanks for visiting me here. Bye for now.
