Is it normal to be this tired???

I am 30 weeks pregnant and I feel like I'm a zombie all of a sudden. Sometimes I feel so faint. All I think about is sleeping. I leave for work at 7 AM and get back home at 6:30. All I want to do is go right to bed... Is that normal?

  • My poor husband wants to hang out and do stuff when I get home from work, and I just want to sleep, eat and cry! LoL Thanks for letting me know I'm not alone! I've never been this tired in my life.

  • Yes, and no. Have you talked with your dr about how tired you are? I went to my dr after I had my 3rd and told him how tired I was, at first he told me that was normal that all moms go through, I went into detail about just HOW tired I was. He ran some tests and I have a rare autoimmune disease (sjogrens) that causes fatigue. Nothing they can do to "fix" it but at least I knew it wasn't all in my head!

  • I have talked to them and they just say "as long as you are eatting right, you are okay." I just don't like this feeling. It's strange. Maybe I'll push it at my appointment next week. They said since my blood sugar is normal, I'm fine. Even when I had mono as a teenager, I don't remember ever feeling this tired.
