Thanks for your query.
First of all you both have patience and not to worry.
You have to do these thing-
1)Visit to gynae every 15days or in a wk. as and when required for checkup.
2)Continue with your drugs and start taking vitamin-C in a form of lime water.
3)Start taking food which are rich in its iron content like leafy vegetable,jaggery etc.
4)Take proper rest and proper diet.
Everything will be fine.
Don't worry,enjoy your pregnancy.
