Yeah..I was thinking the same thing ur iron is prolly low. Make sure ur eating a lot of iron fortied foods and taking ur prenatal. Also tell ur dr so they can do a blood check for u (for anemia). Are u craving ice or anything that's not food? Those are big indicators of anemia.

I t can be normal but also not.

I was tired with both of my kids.  With this one, I'v been super exhausted. An hour after I wake up from a full night's sleep, I am ready for bed.  I have cried from being so tired before.  I just chalked it up to pregnancy.  I am 27 weeks tomorow and found out with my last CBC for my glucose test last week that I am definitely anemic, which is contributing to the exhaustion. :(
