  • Fatigue is very common during pregnancy.

  • Have you had your iron level checked? Those are symptoms of anemia. Either way, you should probably call you doctor or midwife and let them know what is going on.

  • sounds like your iron is low, or you ate a carby breakfast without enough protein. Eat something and lay down, and if it persists, call your doc.

  • Are you sick at all? Have maybe a mild sore throat that isn't bad at all so your not even thinking twice about it? I'm just asking that because mid pregnancy I complained to my ob about how I could sleep all day and still be tired and how it felt the same way as when I had mono. So she did a blood test and I had a reactivation of the mono virus. It was no big deal and lasted much less time then the first bout of it did, but at least I knew why I was so tired. She told me the stress on the body from the pregnancy can cause it to resurface with out being exposed to it again. Since I was second trimester there was no danger. She only prescribes orange juice and "as many naps as you can take" and then laughed. She laughed because It was my fifth baby, she knew that, and knew damn well there would be no naps for me!
