Why am I still tired in the middle of the day when I am in my second trimester?

Everyone said I'd have all my energy back, they lied!

  • no pregnancy is restricted to how you feel for certain trimesters! my 1st was a breeze, this one however is a drainer! i was sick the first 4-5 months (non stop all day throwin up!) and have had heartburn like crazy, and talk about needing a nap.. all 3 trimesters i have been SUPER tired! i need a nap within the 1st 2 hours im awake and i will sleep for like 3 hours and be ready for bed by 8! (sometimes i take 2 naps during the day)

  • There are no exact timelines for feeling any certain way. Every pregnancy is different. If you try to track your pregnancy by the books you may find yourself a little dissapointed.

  • I didn't. With both of my pregnancies I got tired and took little rests in between housework and first born. I would snack on foods fresh fruits or something that had an energizing taste to them. Not sugar items.
