  • I would start taking a multi vitamin and get some more iron in your diet. Quick fix for me is 5 hour energy.

  • Anemia is common in pregnancy, so if it was borderline and you were taking multivitamins with iron he may have overlooked it. I know you don't think your depressed, but feeling tired and loosing interest in doing things are classic symptoms....but if you think you just need a pick me up the 5 hour energy has four calories, no sugar, and no crash. I'll find you a link.
