Sweetie, you're pregnant.  Of course you have no energy.  I am 39 weeks and still have no energy... Good luck...

i just googled anemia during pregnancy. whenever im not sure of anything thats going on with my body when im pregnant, i just google it and that usually helps until i can get ahold of my doc.

I didn't stop getting tired until about 20 weeks, but then it also came back around 27.. :(  As for bruising, I do it like a banana and I don't have anemia.. Then again, I also bruised the same before I was pregnant..  Ah, I guess I'm no help.. haha..

I would make sure you get all the food you need think about the fact that the baby is taking so much from you.. and well you need food  too :)

I was like that till about 20 weeks or so, just exhausted & really needed to take a decent nap everyday. And then i finally got my energy back, but now I'm almost 33 weeks and it's gone again! LOL It could be anemia, that's a possibility, but it's totally normal to be really tired and have 0 energy most of your pregnancy. Not sure about the bruising though!

Its kinda funny that you say that.  Last week I went to the dr and explain to her that I had energy, im 21 weeks and that i know pregnant women dont have energy but this was beyond that so she did blood work and found out that i was anemic.....so just because ur pregnant doesnt mean that everything is to blame on your pregnancy.......it kills me when dr say that....so if i get the flu are they going to say its because your pregnant.....

My dr didnt wont to do the blood work either until i was 24 weeks, and i am only 21 weeks.....i basically had to demand it.......and ive been taking an iron pill for a few days now and i can already tell the difference!
