I'm 22 weeks pregnant, I was super tired my entire first trimester, and then there was a few weeks where I felt better than ever!! Now I am back to no sleep and over exhausted, any advice on how to overcome fatigue?

  • I suffered from a lot of fatigue when I was pregnant. People told me it would go away after the first trimester and it never did. I ended up getting bloodwork done and found out I was anemic. I began taking iron supplements and made time to relax and would take a short nap at around 3 in the afternoon.

  • drink lots of water, eat lots of fruits and veggies, rest as much as possible. I would also suggest getting ur iron checked.

  • Try adjusting your eating so that your biggest meal is breakfast, lunch your second biggest, and then a small dinner. (Make sure that the foods you are eating are real energy foods like fruit and protein -- not sugary which will give you a little energy and then cause you to crash.) This will not only help you have more energy to burn during the day, but will help you sleep better at night because your body is not busy digesting a large meal. I switched to this about midway through my 3rd trimester and it really helped a lot!
