I don't really know which category to put this in, it was either sleep or health, so I chose this.
For the last few days I have really really struggled to keep y my eyes open when it gets to about 2pm, I'm finding it more and more difficult to stay awake and if I stand up I am so tired I feel dizzy, I sleep well on a night and more often than not get 8hours sleep so this really seems unusual. Its so bad i've dropped off whilst doing something (luckily sat down) and have had to be woken by dd2, if she hadn't have woken me then I would have been late to collect dd1.
I have been feeling down lately and we are in the middle of a heatwave here but no other symptoms.
Like I say, I don't have any other symptoms, but seem sooooooooooooooooooooooooo worn out, I am working all day tomorrow and really dreading it, I could very very easily go to bed, I didn't think of either a virus or anaemia, though I am always borderline anaemic after each totm but the doctor hasn't given me any treatment.
Could it be an insulin related thing? Low blood sugar? My ds gets really really grumpy at 3.00, (I can tell the time by him!) and unless I give him something to eat quickly he is just awful. Dh is the same - gets really grouchy and tired mid afternoon.
I would definitely second the iron and make sure you eat every two to three hours (pref. something with protein in rather than just carbs). I have chronic fatigue and find if I miss out on regular snacks I'm a basketcase - my worst time is 5 ish tho.
Also can you take a 20 min nap during the day? It's amazing how refreshing this can be.
