Answer: Hi dear,
During pregnancy,the Hb level should be minimum 12.looks like you are anemic.you should start iron supplements to increase it.dietary iron along with supplements should increase your hb.consume the following to increase Hb:
1- green leafy vegetables like spinach
2- beans and lentils
3- whole grains

Try to eat it along with vitamin C rich food to increase the absorption.
