So tired, I can't keep my eyes open, what to take?

I'm 35 weeks pregnant, have an 18 month old at home and I work full time. I've been so tired in the morning lately that I just want to lay my head down at my desk. I can seriously barely keep my eyes open right now. I get what should be plenty of sleep at night. I got 7.5 hrs last night. I try to avoid caffeine if possible. What else can I eat/drink to get energized?

  • I felt like that right at the start of my pregnancy, a simple blood test showed that I've an under active thyroid, and In was slightly anaemic. Thyroxin & Iron perked me up a treat!
