Anaemic or just knackered?

I'm off work today, went in but lasted about half an hour before I had to come home. I'm 14 1/2 weeks, really tired, headache, bunged up nose and generally feel manky. There is a bug going around at the moment which I think I might have picked up, but is being tired all the time normal at this stage, or is it a sign of anaemia? All I want to do is sleep then have a rest when I do wake up. I might go to the doctors tomorrow if I don't feel any better, but I'm too flippin' tired to manage the walk down there!

It is normal to feel shattered - I needed 12 hours of sleep a night at this stage of pregnancy. But it's a good idea to go to the doctors when you are feeling so ill.

By the way, love your name, have you name changed from something else?

are you taking any vitamin supplements? Floradix is good.
