i have bruises that have mysteriously shown up. most of them are on my legs and feet. is it normal for bruises to show up like that? I am also feeling more worn out than what i used to be. is that normal only 5 months into it? :huh:
yeah…i mean your getting bigger your carrying more and more eachday so your going to get a lil more tired. i dont know about the bruises on ur legs though, because i never got those so you should probably talk to your doctor about it. but being worn out is totally normal
Fatigue and bruising are both signs of anemia (iron deficiency) which can show up in pregnancy.Pregnant women need 2 1/2 times the iron that an average person needs. Make sure you are taking your prenatal vitamins and try to eat foods rich in iron like Special K cereal, red meat, green leafy vegetables, and nuts. I would try increasing your iron intake before your next doctor visit and see if that helps. Your doctor can draw some blood and let you know if you are anemic or not and then will prescribe iron pills but it’s better to try and get more iron through your regular diet because those pills can make you really constipated:S Hope this helps 🙂
thanyou for all of your help, the doctor said i had low iron. i am now taking pills to help it.
