extreme tired

This is my 2nd pregnancy... I have an almost 2 year old. I am 8 weeks prego. I remember being tired last time, but I feel like it's extreme this time. I try and get to bed early like 9:00 or so, and rest when I can, but I just wake up still tired. The tired stuff just hit me like a week ago. Anyone else have this?

  • Definitely. Your second pregnancy is so much harder when you have a little one. With your first you can nap or sleep in but your second you got a little bundle of energy waiting to be feed and entertained! It helps if your hubby will take the child for the day sometimes so you can rest.

  • Yup. I'm 20 weeks in on #2 with a 3 year old, and I STILL feel it most days.

  • Also remember that anemia is a common problem in pregnancy, so be sure to mention it to your doc, especially if you have a history of anemia in the past.

  • I remember it with all my pregnancy's. It was just easier when I did not have a little one to care for. I could come home from work and lay on the couch.
