bHCG and Low iron?

So happy! Finally got my results for my second bHCG draw (which happened on the 31/3 but due to Easter I can only get a lab result now... and it tripled!!

But my iron levels are dangerously low in they're 2 and ferritin was <6. So need three transfusions starting next week as the doctor is incredibly concerned... Anyone experience transfusions in early pregnancy?. The doctor was really concerned as it can cause muscle cramping etc so I'm really scared to have it done.
