Really tired at 19 weeks... normal?

So I've been way tired this last week or so. Not sure why or anything but I just never seem to want to get out of bed and when I do I dread going to work or even the store! What makes it worse is that today I wanted so bad to call in and have my SO call in to cause I just want to stay in bed all day and have him hold me. Am I possibly coming down with something or is it normal to be really tired for weeks at a time with no explanation?

  • I was having similar issues during my pregnancy last year. I worked full time all the way up until my due date, it's tough. However, when I doubled the amount of water I was drinking per day and took an iron supplement in addition to the prenatal (per my doc's suggestion) it really helped. I had a lot more energy and was able to make it through work each day... of course, I was falling asleep on the couch by 8 pm, but I think that's normal :-) Good luck!

    Remember... drink more water! I used to hate water, so if I can do it, anyone can! :-)

  • You're lucky you made it that long without extreme fatigue.... I was like that from week 5 with the twins.
