High MCV During Pregnancy

by Amy

I recently had blood work done and discovered that my MCV is 101. I am 27 weeks pregnant and wondering how concerned I should, or should not be about this.

What causes this? What can I do to lower it? What are potential risks to myself and/or my baby?

I was advised by my OB not to be concerned, but also advised to report this info to my primary care physician. If this is not an issue to be concerned about, why am I being advised to report it to my Primary care physician?! This makes me feel that it is indeed something to look into further.

Thank you for your time,

Please read my page on Vitamin B12 Deficiency in Pregnancy. Would I be concerned if I had a major sign of a vitamin deficiency during pregnancy? Sure I would.

I'd also be concerned about my:
