  • personally I was tired thur all three of my pregnancies and now with the fourth I am draging again. It could be you are not getting enough iron that is what my problem was. But you should still check with your Dr and just ask him if there is anything else they think it might be!

  • Welcome to pregnancy! And get used to it! It really doesn' t change much, even after you have the baby, especially if you are nursing.

  • This is kandace, the above poster to the question. I guess I didn't make myself clear. I already have a three year old and I was not this tired with him. I don't think being this tired is normal...

  • I wasn't very tired with my first pregnancy (I worked ALL the time, sometimes DOUBLE shifts...which sucked lol) but my second I was tired ALL the time and didn't feel like doing anything either!! I honestly think it is normal but if you are really worried, I'd ask your doctor. And remember that each pregnancy is dfferent. Good luck!

  • Ah pregnancy... I don't know how I stayed awake enough during my 2nd pregnancy to care for my son, lol.

  • i think it's normal.. I'm pregnant with my first (36 weeks) and I am tired all the time and sleep isn't easy because my hips are starting to spread and I never want to go anywhere or do anything and I too have low iron and they have me taking 65mg tablets 3 times a day.. and all I am allowed to drink is water.. it's been this way for the past few months but I try to stay active..
