Thanks for your query,
Neutrophilic leucocytosis is common during pregnancy. So you dont have to worry about WBC count. But your Hemoglobin is really low , and its quite risky. You should undergo some investigations to know the cause of anemia and exclude haemoglobinopathies, so that proper treatment can be initiated. Consult your OBG soon.
Best of luck and take care.
Hope it helps you..
