Anyone else so tired?

I am very early in my pregnancy, and I'm so tired. I fell asleep at 9PM, woke up at 5:30 this morning, and I'm dragging. Also, the last few days if I try to lay down in the afternoon, even though I'm so exhausted I can't sleep!

  • Oh yes, its like the first trimester you sleep and are always tired. It will end soon. But you do need to get your iron checked. Mine was always so low.

  • Yes, yes, yes! This is completely normal. During your first trimester your body is still adjusting to all the new changes and different hormones floating around. I have the same problem... Here is a web site that has a lot of answers for expecting mothers like us. I love the site. You can sign up for weekly updates on how your baby is developing this week, etc... It always makes me so happy.

  • I think my iron might be low....I have been craving red meat for the past couple of days! I think my body is trying to tell me something!
