Our expert says:
Chicken and fish, plus egg yolk will supply sufficient iron if you did not start out this pregnancy with anaemia. However, the 15 mg of iron in the Chela Preg should be more than sufficient to supplement your diet. By all means ask your gynae to check for anaemia. I think your tiredness may be due to a variety of reasons, including the fact that you are pregnant and your changing hormone levels can have this effect. Women usually feel much more energetic during the 2nd trimester, and get a surge of energy. Also mention the back pain to your gynae and ask if you are allowed to do gentle exercise like going for walks in the fresh air. I don't think that you are gaining too much weight and the Weigh Less plan should help a lot.
Good luck with the pregnancy.
