Since expecting, I have noticed that whenever I got tired, I am having very low blood pressure. Is there some connection between my situation and getting tired?

There is a direct connection.
You know that blood takes oxygen and nutrients to all your body. If you have low blood pressure, irrigation to the organs is not the best and you may develop some symptoms such dizzines, fatigue, blurred vision, lethargy. Fortunately low blood pressure causes detectable symptoms, and high blood pressure causes symptoms often only when there is a damage to our body.
One soda, a cup of strong coffee or a brandy shot may be helpful in those episodes of low blood pressure.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. If by expecting you means pregnancy then its pretty common to feel more tired in pregnancy so you need to be more cautious in your food intake and diet lifestyle and have regular antenatal check ups.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
