Sickness or nausea can occur in early pregnancy.

This can cause tired feeling.

Tired feeling can also come from anemia.

Vitamin, iron deficiencies can be associated with hair loss.

Are you taking prenatal vitamins?

Please try to take plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables.

Fresh fruits, vegetables would provide vitamins, minerals naturally.
