If you are anemic...: For any reason, it is correctable, either through transfusion or correcting the cause of the anemia. The latter is preferable provided the patient is hemodynamically stable. If your anemia reflects blood loss following miscarriage and d&c, that blood loss was also accompanied by fe loss. Depending on your status prior to the event, you may need fe supplement to replete stores. Good luck to you.

Probably not: The trouble with that answer is that pregnancy demands the best possible physical and metabolic status. Please remember that you are feeding a rapidly growing infant whose wellbeing is on your shoulders.
