lathargic and tired

Postby DivineLotus » May 17, 2015 4:00 pm

Any others feel this way? I feel so tired, lathargic, lazy. I try caffeine but it only holds me up for so long. I sleep enough so that's not it. Any suggestions.

I think it just comes with the territory. I get exhausted very easily. I have a few events/goals to hit weekly and I've been doing good so far. The downside is that I know realize that it's unrealistic for me to return to work before the baby gets here. I work from home so I was hopeful but I just don't have the stamina.

I hate it because I feel there's always stuff to do and normally I'm not lazy. 12 weeks to go.

I understand. I had to learn to surrender on all the non essential things. It's very hard some days. I've cried over it too. I feel like I'm in an alternate universe where everyone else is living like normal and I just want to get things back to the way they used to be. I'm glad this is the last tri! We've come sooooooo far.

So I'm even more anemic than before. It explains it. Horrible feeling.

Did you just have a doctor's appointment? How often are you going? I had one today and it was just a standard check up. We stopped by the store briefly afterwards. I still wound up being worn out. I slept for hours when we got home. I haven't asked my doctor about anemia. I have so much on my plate that I'll probably lose my mind if I'm told anymore bad news. Are you doing anything to treat it?

I go see her about every four weeks. I'm taking two iron supplements on top of all the other stuff I already take. Its hard to do anything. Was not like this during my second tri. I actually had energy.

I know I am a little late to this discussion, but I was severely anemic during my second pg. I tried every iron pill they gave me, but within a day to a week, I would start to get nauseous again and I would stop eating again. I had just gained my pre-pg weight back, so even the dr didn't want that. I ended up on infusions at the local hospital, and I was thrilled! I felt so much better when I started them! I couldn't believe how tired and lethargic I had been and I didn't even notice. After iron infusions, I was able to move so much better and easier. Just an idea for you.

Your story sounded familiar to me so I looked up your name and I think we are in the same HG facebook group, with Starr.
