dear aiysha
11-12 g/dl is the desired range. but your haemoglobin is not too bad. it depends on your treating obstetrician as to how he/she will be dealing with this if at all. Usually iron supplementation is started during pregnancy along with folic acid. if you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

take care
