    Default Ideas for increasing energy during 2nd tri.

    I'm on Elevit for iron, vit D, nothing is working.
    I feel like I'm wading through porridge everyday. Nothing is getting done and I'm tired all.the.time.
    I'm only 22.5 weeks! We have to move house in 5-6 weeks and I feel like crying at the thought of having to pack. I don't know how I'm going to do it with three other kids.
    Any magical remedies other than sleep and water?

    I find going for a walk helps boost energy. Not sure of how you my be able to logistically do that with three kiddies though.

    Good luck x

    You poor thing, that sounds tough! Can you get someone to help you pack? Maybe hire a professional or enlist some friends?

    For the fatigue, how about:
    • exercising/stretching
    • lying down for 5 mins with a face mask or chamomile teabags on your eyes and do some mindfulness meditation
    • has your GP checked your vitamin levels? Maybe just eat as much iron, protein, fruit and vegies as you can.
    Hope you feel better! I used to be anaemic and that feeling of wading through porridge is awful.
