Hi I'm 8wks 3days and from yesterday have become unbelievably tired (more than my usual pregnancy tired) I was asleep by 9.30pm last night and woke up with no energy at all. Sent DD to childminder and Iv had today off work and been in bed. Could it be low iron levels or am I just plain tired?

Probably just tired. When is your booking in appt?

Iv already had it around 2wks ago (coil baby and thought I was further than I was)

Call up and ask what your iron level (hemoglobin) was.

It's most likely just early pregnancy tiredness as it would be unusual for pregnancy to be causing low iron this early on in your pregnancy unless you had low iron to start with. The first trimester is exhausting though so much sympathy to you.
