  • I called my docs office on Monday and they said to come in yesterday but Sam was home from school sick so I couldn't go. Well I kept him home again today for his cough and so I have an appt tomorrow but I wanted to get some ideas for you all!
    I just feel so crappy and can't get anything done because I feel like I am gonna pass out.
    What is going on???

  • Most likely it's your iron is low.
     


    Do you take any iron supplements now? Make sure you eat lots of iron rich foods too.
Thank you savannah33!

  • Just what is in my prenatal, but I just started taking it again about a week ago because I was so sick with morning sickness. How long should it take to kick back in?

  • I was like that at around 10-12 weeks with both of my pg's. I just got over it. Hopefully you will too! It could also be your iron or dehydration. Increase your fluids a bit and see if that helps too!

     
Thank you teddybear1082!

  • I felt that way too. Hopefully it is just a normal pregnancy symptom for you!
