```Hello.

In:=
o = InputForm[1/Sqrt[x^2 + x] + O[x, Infinity]^10]

Out//InputForm=
SeriesData[x, Infinity, {1, -2^(-1), 3/8, -5/16, 35/128, -63/256,
231/1024, -429/2048, 6435/32768}, 1, 10, 1]

In:=
({#1, SeriesCoefficient[o, #1]} & ) /@ Range[1, 9, 2]

Out=
{{1, 1}, {3, 3/8}, {5, 35/128}, {7, 231/1024}, {9, 6435/32768}}
