In brief: Same as non-diabetic

In general, diabetes does not increase the risk of anemia in pregnancy.
All pregnant women experience some drop in hemoglobin during pregnancy because blood volume goes up more than red cell volume - this is called the physiologic anemia of pregnancy. Up to 30% of women will experience a larger drop in hemoglobin (below 10) which ir real anemia.
