In brief: Probably not

Fatigue in pregnancy is extremely common, but in women where this might be exaggerated, a review of things like your blood counts (looking for anemia) should be discussed.
And yes, women in pregnancy are prone to blood clots especially if they are 'immobilized'. So, during the day, get up and move around when you are awake every couple of hours.
