  • ask your dr. about maybe taking more iron intake.....that might help.

  • Get enough rest, make sure you are getting enough nutrients (especially iron), and hang in there. It won't last forever!

  • You just gotta rest!! It will pass and that baby obviously needs the energy to grow. This is good practice for a newborn also ;)

  • I would say ask your doctor as these women have told you, but learn to relax and take some naps.

  • I would take naps when you can. Also try eating snacks here and there.

  • Eat foods rich in protein, "B' vitamen's , and iron ...foods like
    fresh fruits
    peanut butter or any nuts
    beef...not fast food beef but good,whole, red meats from a butcher or supermarket
    really anything green from a garden and anything from the cow, chicken/egg will give you energy plus you want to add a whole grain food in the morning for sustained energy throughout the like an egg with a bowl of oatmeal or cereal and juice
