Hello dear,
Thanks for trusting hcm about your health care.
I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.
You can take astymin Syp but after meal( not empty stomach) helpful in baby growth.
You can continue in your whole pregnancy.
You just lie down quitely and try to feel baby movement.
Sometimes you can able to feel after 20 weeks.

I am pregnant(26 weeks) with my second kid and have anaemia . I had similar condition during my first pregancy. In my first trimester, my Hb level was 9.1 and now it s 7.9 (at the end of 6th month). I have consulted many doctors(internal medicine) for this. they have done a series of test like iron stores, thyroid , B12, folate level and even for thalassaemia. All the test results were well within range and they diagonosed it as chronic anaemia. I have taken Orofer S iron infusion 8 times in my first pregnancy but it din t boosted Hb by even .1. I delivered my first child at Hb level 9. Now, my doctor is again suggesting for 8 iron infusions and has said that i will even require blood transfusion . I am a vegitarian but I am eating well(raisins, figs, spinach , beetroot, pomegranate etc are part of my daily diet). I am scared of blood transfusion. Can you suggest me what step should I take next? Also, how much shall I reach for delivery?
