I'm now ten weeks pregnant and whilst I know you can feel tired in the first trimester, is this complete and utter exhaustion normal? And if so, what can you do to counter it?
I've spoken to the midwife and I'm also severly anaemic for which I'm now taking three iron tablets a day. I'm also clinically depressed, and I'm not sure if the exhaustion is pregnancy, anaemia or depression... or, more probably, a mixture of all three.
At the moment, thankfully, I'm not working but I'm finding it hard to even function. Has anyone else felt like this, and if so, again, any suggestions in to what to do to minimise the impacts of this on my life?? Thank fully I dont have any other children at the moment either, so its mainly my cats that are feeling the impact (more fuss as I'm sitting down so much!). Please... any suggestions would be really really appreciated!
