I'm coming up for 23 weeks pregnant, and I am so tired. I have no idea where this mythical 2nd trimester energy burst is going to come from??
At my last OB appointment I mentioned it, and he sent me for blood tests (e.g., checking iron), but the results came back as normal.
I just feel exhausted all the time. I'm going to bed before 8pm most nights, and waking with the alarm at 6am, but I wake feeling like I haven't slept at all.
I have a 2.5yr old, and she can be tiring at times, but I don't understand why I'm feeling like this.
I keep thinking that maybe I should try to exercise more, as I haven't done any lately at all - and maybe that would give me more energy... But when it comes to it I just can't bring myself to do it.
Some afternoons I'll even have a short nap, if DD sleeps (which is rare), but it doesn't seem to make any difference.
Anyone else feeling like this? My OB didn't really have much to suggest/ say about it. I just don't remember feeling this bad last pregnancy!
