Answer: Hi dear, Your Hb seems to be quite low.During pregnancy,the Hb level should be minimum 12.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 4- eggs and meat 5-fruits like apple and pomegranate 6- animal protein like eggs,meat Try to eat it along with vitamin C rich food to increase the absorption. Donot take calcium and iron supplements together.if the hb remains low in later stages too,doctor prescribes injections for quick rise in hb,which is quite beneficial.In pregnancy,sugar fluctuations are common.and women tend to get gestational diabetes.it is due to hormones and lifestyle.hormones you can't control,directly.so change your lifestyle by altering something's in diet and exercise.you can include lot of fibre in diet,complex carbs like oats,brown rice,whole wheat,quinoa.avoid all sugary stuff,refined food items.eat clean home cooked food.including walking daily could be sufficient to bring your sugar level in range.
