    Default Extreme fatigue

    Im in my second pregnancy. Im 17 weeks and feeling extreme fatigue.
    I have a 10month old also and he is always on the go and never stops and sometimes only has 1 nap a day.
    Df is a great help when he is home from work.
    My iron levels r good.
    Just seriously struggling. I look amd feel like **** all the time. Sometimes im so tired i wana cry out of tiredness. My eyes usually wana close on their own and r so heavy.
    Just dont know what to do.
    Ds has been asleep for an hour and a half and ive been trying to habe a nap to but now feel overtired and cant sleep.
    i seriously was not this tired last pregnancy.

    Can you get a blood test to check other levels like thyroid/ to see if you have any viruses?

    It sounds like you've got a lot going on, so it's understandable to be a lot more tired than with your last pregnancy. Extreme fatigue is really tough and can wear you down so look after yourself (eat right, fresh air, exercise etc).

    I never had a problem with tiredness in my first pregnancy, but my second pregnancy oh my goodness. I was exactly how you describe. I just wanted to lay down and cry with exhaustion. Definitely have some blood tests to check any infections etc. Its also great that you're trying to nap or at least rest when bub is. How is your sleep at night? Are you going to bed early? Try to leave any extra housework and don't overdo it. Hopefully you'll be over the worst of it soon.

    I was wondering about this too. Everything you talk about is exactly how I'm feeling too.

    Hope things improve for you!
