but the tiredness is still here
I'm in bed by 10 at night, after having an hour or an hour and a half snooze in the afternoon. I'm still absolutely shattered. Every time I sit down my eyes get heavy and I could fall asleep.
Should I go to my doc and get my iron levels checked or is there anything I can do?
Ok, I've had very little to complain about soo far, thank God but seriously I'm struggling with the tiredness.
My morning sickness has pretty much gone
This too shall pass- I know it's no consolation now, but I really am less tired now than I was at your stage. Just get little naps whenever you can
Bubba Bump im the same as you, Im tired everyday and im always in bed early.
Bubba i had unbelieveable exhaustion until about 14 weeks, i literally could not stand in a queue in the shops or anything, i had to sit constantly. I never experienced anything like it in my life. Now i have to say my haemoglobin was low as i had asked the doc to check my iron, i tend to get anaemic a lot anyway. But she said i shouldnt take the iron (galfer fa) until the morning sickness was totally gone. Since week 14 i am LOADS better and ive been taking the iron since. But i think this extreme exhaustion is very common in 1st trimester even without low iron, but maybe get it checked anyway to have peace of mind. Having said that i am still much more tired than i would be if not pregnant, getting about 10 hours sleep a night and still often tired in the afternoons!!!!
