HI and thanks for using the forum.

This is something you should definitely discuss with your ob/gyn.  I can give you some general information.

Anemia during pregnancy is generally caused by an iron deficiency.  Iron deficiency anemia can cause you to feel much more tired during your pregnancy than you normally would.  There are also studies that link iron deficiency during pregnancy to preterm delivery and therefore low birth weight.  Generally, women who have iron deficiency anemia during pregnancy are given iron supplements and encouraged to increase their iron intake in their daily diets.  

You should discuss your concerns with your ob/gyn and discuss the need for iron supplementation.   I hope this info helps.  Congratulations on your pregnancy and I hope you have a fast and easy delivery.
