I have all of the symptoms below:

  • Extreme tiredness and paleness.
  • Palpitations – the awareness of the heartbeat, breathlessness and dizziness can occur
  •  headaches

Now, I know why. My haemoglobin count was below 8g. Our midwife called on Friday to say that I have sever anemia as I will need to take iron supplements three times a day. The additional vitamins should spin an interesting twist on the pregnancy discomfort level since my prenatals already make me queasy.

The bad news is the anemia; in addition, to the fact that this is how preclampsia started during my pregnancy with Beatrice. The good news is my fatigue, dizziness, and headaches can be explained.
