It seems that no matter how much sleeping or napping I do, I just feel totally run down. I can do like 30 min of housework and then just feel totally done. When the nurse called this morning she also mentioned that my iron was low(I think I put that in my other post) So maybe increasing my iron will help?

At my 24 week appointment, I told my OB that the first trimester fatigue was back with a vengance.

I could definitely take a nap every day... but that all day utter fatigue might have something to do with the iron thing. I have noticed in the last few weeks (since I hit the 3T mark pretty much) I've been much more tired than before.

My energy is back now that I'm in the 2T but definitely not all there. I mentioned to DH earlier that I just feel groggy. I still take occasional naps but it's not every day like in the first 12 weeks. My iron was slightly low at my last blood draw a couple weeks ago and doc is letting me try bringing it up on my own. I'm eating Total cereal like it's going out of style!

Yes...always discuss it with your OB, but...Yes :)
