In brief: Get a consult

"Mild vitamin B12 deficiency" is like being "a little bit pregnant.
" It should not happen -- ESPECIALLY if you are, as you say, pregnant. If this happened because you are a vegetarian, reconsider or start supplementing now. Otherwise, you have a right & duty to know what's happening. Your primary care physician didn't communicate answers to you -- a 2nd physician's input is in order.
