I am DELERIOUS.

I am about 8 weeks preg. with my second child and am unbelievably tired all the time. I eat a spinach salad 3-4 times a week and am taking my prenatal vitamin. Any advice on food, etc. of what may alleviate my inability to get off the couch??

  • Well...it's gonna sound flip, but...sleep.The early weeks can really take it out of you so get the sleep your body craves. It *will* pass.

  • I agree, just sleep!! You'll begin to get your energy back around the second trimester.
