Can anemia during pregnancy harm the fetus? I’m four months pregnant and was just diagnosed with anemia. Could this be harming my unborn child?
Possible, unlikely.: Maternal anemia is grossly overdiagnosed during pregnancy in the U.S.; british studies have proven that the best maternal hemoglobin is 9-11 g/dl as a nadir around 28 weeks. If you are in that range you and the baby are just fine. I would get concerned if this gets below 8-9 g/dl and try oral iron supplementation. Consider electrophoresis if never done before to exclude hemoglobinopathies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My cousin was told she miscarried one of her twins at 5wks, but the other survived and is growing. How is this possible with all the bleeding she had?
Not unheard of.: Most recent data suggest that many of us started our in utero lives with a co-twin that never survived to viability, or even detection by ultrasound. Losing a dichorionic twin and continuing the pregnancy with the survivor is actually a well-known outcome in multifetal pregnancies. The earlier the fetal loss the less severe the consequences to the survivor, because these insults are all/nothing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
