Really Tired Still

I'm at 22 weeks and still plain exhausted. Does anyone else feel this way? I was checked for anemia, thyroid, white blood cell count and am apparently quite healthy! I feel tired from when I get up until I fall into bed at about 8! Anyone else?

I was also checked for everything and was fine and my exhaustion is being caused by stress and pregnancy. The stress I was normally under is just magnified by the pregnancy and that causes you to get really really tired. Sometimes at work I feel like I can't stay awake for even one more second.

Hey guys, I'm in the same boat, I'm 22 weeks now as well, and dont seem to get enough sleep and trust me I'm getting sometimes 13 hours a night (with breaks :-)) I don't know what to do, I cant work function, who has an idea what to do, ??? :-)

i am 20 weeks and was feeling the same way you do. The only thing that helped me is walking in the afternoons after i get off of work. My husband and i take a brisk walk in the park and i have started eating healthier foods and foods with carbohydrates. I still feel fatigued sometimes but its not as bad. i hope this helps

I'm 21 weeks and I am also very exhausted at times. However, I do have good days as well. I would like to recommend a homeopathic product - Blackthorn berry elixir (the name, over here in South africa) is excellent in alleviating the fatigue

I am more tired now (17 weeks pregnanat) than I have been throughout my whole pregnancy, thus far. I just try to take it easy and sleep when I can. Which really isn't easy because I have a 2 and a half year old. But thats what parenthood is all about. Good luck

By 3:00 in the afternoon, I can barely hold my head up at work. I work till 5. It's tough. I go home and go to sleep, my husband wakes me, we eat, and I go back to sleep again. If I am home, I am sleeping. I haven't watched any of my favorite shows for over 5 months. Ha!

I am 24 weeks and have good days and bad. Yesterday I went to the gym and ran several errands. Friday I worked 2 jobs from 7 in the morning until 12 midnight. Today I got 10 hours of sleep and felt like going back to bed 2 hours later. I barley had the energy to take a shower. I was also told it only get's worse.

I am 18 wks and tired all the time. I've cut down my working hours to 5-6 hrs/day. But it still feels like i'm working an 8 hour day. My first two pregnancy's were not like this at all.


Johanna - August 21

Yes, I am exhausted. I never want to leave the house or do anything. I still am throwing up on occasion. I can't eat very much even though I want to. I feel like I have a bad hangover everyday. Its awful. I'm 20 weeks.
