I have been anemic before. I used to take iron. I know since I am pregnant now that I get extremely exhausted!! I am not sure if this is normal for me or it is because my iron is low. I also get short of breath easy, so I am guessing it is my iron. I will know more when I go to my first appt. on May 29th.
Sorry if I couldn't be of more help.
Wishing everybody pain-free days ahead!
