  • Just make sure you're getting enough iron - deficiency is common in pregnancy and can cause extreme tiredness. Sanatogen or pregnacare vitamins contain iron and everything else you need.
  • sleep when you get the chance even if its for 20mins and then spend what little spare time you have relaxing image
  • Hi there,

    Midwife recommended me Floradix - liquid iron supplement, doesn't seem to bung me up like iron tablets and I've been taking it on top of Pregnacare as I'm really susceptible to anemia.

    I've been feeling a lot more perky even a few days since taking it (at week 9, now week 12) but them I'm only doing one job, not two!

    Take care xx
  • Hi, I know how you feel, I'm 31weeks+4, I normally am lucky to get more than two hours sleep in one go. I tried lavender baths, with fresh fruit at each meal time.
    Good luck x

  • I was tired up until about 16 weeks now it's back at 33!! Just make sure you lie down to it when you can. Your body needs a rest to make your lovely baby!
  • I was completely shattered til about week 15 but even now at 18 wks if I find I have done loads or had a really restless night then I need a nap for an hour in the afternoon. It might be coz Im older (38) this time as I dont remember it being so bad when I was 22 and 31!
