Will my low haemoglobin affect my twin pregnancy?

Q: I am 28 weeks pregnant with twins. I had to have a cervical stitch put in at 18 weeks. My haemoglobin has been stagnant between 8.3 and 8.6g/dl for the last three months inspite of first having two Ferriums a day and then getting iron shots every alternate day for last twenty days. My babies are about 1200gm and 1300gm each. Will this affect the babies and what is the reason for the anaemia?

A:Your babies weight appears normal for the gestational age. However, your anaemia could either be because you are thalassaemic so get that ruled out. Besides get your stool and urine examined to find the cause of anaemia. If all is normal then possibly it is the twin pregnancy which is keeping your hemoglobin low and in this case let your obstetrician be ready with blood transfusion for the delivery.
