  • hey there! Are you taking your prenatal vitamins everyday?

    What's your Iron levels? Might want to ask your doctor-you could be getting a little anemic. It happens in pregnancy sometimes.

  • Yes, I am always cold. I thought pregnancy was supposed to make you hot. I think I am going to be a pregnant lady who actually enjoys a hot summer.

  • I am back and forth- I was cold up until the past couple of days, last night and today I have been burning up. I am also incredibly fatigued. I was anemic with my previous pregnancy, the doc hasn't said either way with this pregnancy so that may be my case also. I am 19 weeks pregnant
