so exhausted lately!!!

I have been absolutely exhausted lately. I have bags under my eyes and sleep a lot. Im 6 1/2 months pregnant. I know its normal but I don't feel healthy because of it, and I'm sure not getting rested isn't good for me OR the baby.

Anyway, what do you do to get more sleep and relax and calm down? Even if im tired, i cant fall asleep.

[no meds though plz]

  • You also may have low iron, if your OB hasn't checked it out yet ask. Hope you feel better.

  • Yeah, lavender!! And I guess just make sure you're taking all of the supplements your dr gave you, prenatals, iron, calcium etc etc.
