  • I would have your iron level checked. In your 2nd trimester you generally feel better.

  • Ugh yes... I was a big lump of lazy for the majority of my pregnancy. I had vicious insomnia once I hit my second trimester and all I wanted to do was sleep. I was actually more productive and less tired taking care of a premature infant post c-section that during pregnancy. Those soaring hormone levels plus the added weight and calories consumed by baby cooking make for a great recipe for exhaustion soup. Don't stress it girl! You're in the home stretch! Enjoy being able to slack off for now because there won't be much of that once your little one arrives. By the way if you have a tough time falling asleep you can take benadryl to help
