Common in pregnancy

Detailed Answer:
Hello mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
Yes dear, these are very common in early pregnancy and will soon get infrequent.
Only pathology can be deranged thyroid hormone levels and low hemoglobin but as you said all tests were normal so nothing much to worry.
Take care
