History noted. Normal range of hemoglobin
in females is 12-15 g/dl.
there will be hemodilution
and the level of hemoglobin will decrease and that is the reason iron in the form of tablets or syrup is supplemented.
In pregnancy normal range varies from 11-12g/dl.As per WHO in developing countries level of 10g/dl holds good.
9.8g/dl is less than the normal limit, but it does not mean it will affect the normal delivery. If you are maintaining the same level or improving 1-2grams/dl is fine. So kindly continue the iron supplement you have been prescribed till delivery. No need to worry about strict level of this for a normal delivery.
Relax, Good day.
