How much hemoglobin should be in pregnant woman CBC test?

!st trimester pregnant CBC normal ranges
It’s a frequently asked question in the laboratory by pregnant women who expect low hemoglobin level during pregnancy, actually most women do, but many women do not show anemic until birthday.
Low hemoglobin in the first trimester means Hb value is less than 11.0 gram per deciliter.
The minimum limits of RBCs count and HCT value are normally less than those in non-pregnant healthy female CBC test.
The upper allowed normal limit of total white blood cells count increased from 11,000 to 13,000 cells per microliter of blood, this may be because increased production of certain WBCs during the course of pregnancy.
