  • Check with your doctor to rule out medical problems, but being pregnant and having two other children will make a person tired. Prioritize. Decide what needs to be done and list the tasks in order of importance. Start with the most important and work down. and when you are too fatigued, you take a break- feet up, get some relaxing in, even if only to read to the baby.

  • if you want more energy mama you're gonna have to slow down and rest when you can... Who says your house has to be spotless? And chances are good you will get that superwoman nesting instinct at some point and will be able to make up for things you may have slacked on a little. Just remember you have your kids and yourself to take care of and oh well if you didn't get to cleaning the kitchen floor I was soooo tired till just recently ( I'm 17 wks. and have a 4 yr old daughter) that I was just tired of being tired I myself think fatigue is the worst pregnancy symptom/side effect. just remember it passes.
