  • Call you OB and let him/her know all of what you're feeling.

  • Talk to your doctor. You may have an iron deficiency, or some other kind of deficiency. It's normal to be tired, but not that tired.

  • I had a period around 8 months where I felt like that for about a week straight. I couldn't shake it, and nothing helped. It was like all my body wanted was sleep. So, I slept for about 16-20 hrs everyday for a week. Then it just went away! Lol. But it could be more serious then whatever my problem was. Have you done your gestational diabetes test yet? Definitely talk to your OB about it. if it's particularly bad, call them today to see what they suggest.

  • i was struggling with this around 6 1/2 or 7 mos. I went in for my appt and told the doc. Come to find out my iron was DANGEROUSLY low and they put me on Iron pills. I am still tired all the time but I don't feel "weak" anymore. So you might call your OB!!

  • I was going to say the iron thing too...but also, depending on how late you are in your pregnancy, you start to secrete hormones that loosen all your muscles (back, stomach, butt, thighs) to prepare you for everything you need to do during delivery. Also, keep in mind that even getting up and moving around is exercise for you now with the extra weight on.
