Thank you all. My obgyn message me yesterday informing my blood test and he can discuss it with me during next visit but still March 10. Hence i am thinking to get some otc or pharmacy. - Orinal Poster :)

same here.. I had to go through blood transfusion when I was at 32 week. . my gynae provided me sangobion too. n of coz to watch out for my diet intake too.

dont self medicate. wait for your appt and your gynae will prescribe it to you. for now while waiting march 10, you can eat iron-rich food :)

Normally your multi vit will contain the iron. Do you want to call ur gynae and ask?

call and ask your gynae... dont self medicate during pregnancy.
