About 9 years ago I had a very severe case of mononucleosis. If you don't know what that is look it up and pray you never get it! Anyway mono makes you extremely tired.

When I was in my first trimester I can honestly say there were some days where I was just as tired as I was when I had mono. The exhaustion was INSANE and debilitating. Just hang in there though -- it stopped for me around 12 weeks and I've had a ton of energy since!

Me too. I have been exhausted and then going to work trying to write software which is hard to do tired. I explained it to my mom as trying to do taxes with no sleep and no caffeine. Hoping I get some energy back soon.

Ugh me too.

DH tries to wake me up in the morning but I tend to resist. It's harder for me to get to sleep at night and I wake up multiple times at night which affects my quality of sleep... and during the day I just feel so drained. I'm taking naps when I usually hate naps.

I am almost 19 weeks and more exhausted now than in the first trimester. Sleeping between 9-13 hours a night, most nights I don't lay awake anymore, and tired literally all day long. Get to see my OB in a few days and will mention it, get my iron levels checked but I don't think its low iron as I've had iron deficiency in the past and different symptoms.

In my 25th week and extreme fatigue has set in. My night sleep is mostly disturbed due to multiple toilet rounds and it feels like someone has put glue on my eyes during daytime. Having a full time day job doesn't help as I'm not able to concentrate on sleep or work, either.

God only knows how am I going to continue like this, my doctor seems to think nothing is wrong with me, just pregnancy hormones!!

I am absolutely exhausted. I am 37+5 today and my DS goes to school a 1 mile walk from my house. I don't drive and there is nobody else available to take him so right now I walk 4 miles everyday getting him to and from school. It is also so freaking hot all the time for me right now and I have no energy. I struggle to even spend time with my daughter atm because by the time I get back from school run I have to sit down for 30-45 minutes just to recover or I feel like I will pass out.

I am not sleeping very well at night anymore either and am constantly waking.

Never had any of this in my previous two pregnancies but this time my body is really struggling.

I join the club awfully tired moms. I can't even get out of bed... Although I'm only 3 months pregnant.

Oh man, I find I'm getting tired well before midnight most days (and I usually falling asleep on the couch well before that). I actually find that once I'm awake, I'm pretty alert, but within a few hours, I just feel physically exhausted. Luckily I'm off work for the next week and a half, so I have time to catch up on my rest.

It's totally normal to be very tired, but you can also ask your doctor to do a simple finger-prick (drop of blood) to test your hemoglobin levels. Iron deficiency makes a huge difference!

I suffered through a few months of extreme fatigue in late second tri, early third, and just kind of figured that was pregnancy, even though I didn't remember it being this bad with my daughter. Turned out, I was quite anemic, and feel sooo much better now that I am working on that. I could have been feeling better months ago, if I had simply thought to request a test. I had been tested in first tri and iron levels were fine, so I never really considered it.
