  • "Just keep swimming!" Sorry been listening to Nemo. Make sure you are eating well and keeping hydrated. So you have energy reserves! I have a 2yo and a 4yo so my down time is also limited and naps are just never going to happen, lol

  • did you get cheched for anemia yet? ] was exhausted in my second pregnancy then ] was diagnosed with anemia. Check it out and good luck to all of you!

  • I agree with dragonqueen, anemia, or iron-deficiency anemia, could be the cause. It's an easy blood test to check for anemia, and if it's iron-deficiency, then you take an additional supplement. It also could just be that you're going to be tired during the whole pregnancy. Not everyone feels energized during the second trimester, even if you have during other pregnancies.
