Feeling Tired??

Postby mexicanchick718 » Tue Dec 10, 2013 1:49 pm

For the past two weeks i have more energy than before but I still feel so tired. Is this normal? My mom is worried since pre-pregnancy I was going 100mph and after becoming pregnant my energy has just been sucked right out of me. Is there anything specific I might be lacking in??

Have you had your iron levels checked lately? You could have low iron which can cause anemia and that can make you very tired. Pregnancy also just tends to be an energy zapping time, take care of yourself and rest when you can :)

i have been the same - im not as bad as i was in the first trimester but all my friends who have had babies told me how much better id be in the second trimester and im just not, id love to stay in bed and am tempted to have a nap in the day.. that said, i am having badly interupted sleep with all the peeing so that could be to blame!

Me too. I can get through the day but I'm just feeling... beat. It's hard to explain but I know that it's normal in pregnancy so I try not to worry. As PP said, make sure your iron levels are high enough, you may need to increase it.

I am more tired than usual, too. I did just find out that I'm slightly anemic at the doctor, and I was kind of surprised because I've been faithfully taking a prenatal with iron. Do you think it might just be that some people are tired throughout? Our bodies are still going through major changes, so it doesn't seem like it's that weird to me.

My iron levels are fine and I have been tired off and on throughout this pregnancy for various reasons. Sometimes it was due to not feeling or eating well. Then not being able to sleep. Recently I just plain don't have the energy.
Like the other ladies mentioned it could very well be low iron. But if everything turns out fine, know you're not the only one. Hopefully it'll ease up for awhile.
