Sleeping all the time??

I'm 32 weeks pregnant with my first and all I seem to do is sleep.

I go to sleep around midnight and don't wake up again until well after midday, I set my alarm at a decent time yet still can't manage to get up.
I'm on mat leave now as I was late for work most days.

Most nights for the last week, I've also been getting a sore throat which goes during the day but comes back again when I sleep.

This feeling of having absolutely no energy is making me depressed horribly! I despise night times as I know il be sleeping for 12-14 hours :(

Is this normal??

Do you take a multivitamin?

Yes very normal to be tired in pregnancy.

Karmaisabitch · 22/02/2017 14:15

I've been taking all the tablets I should, since I found out

You you sound like my sister! Even when she isn't pregnant! Have you had your iron levels checked recently?
But very normal to be tired! You obviously need it! And enjoy as those days will soon be behind you!

Very normal!

Get all the sleep you can for now. You might find it harder to get comfortable nearer the end of the pregnancy.

Do let your midwife know so they can double check iron levels etc in case they are lower than they would like.

I sleep about 10+ hours since I got pregnant in December and I take naps too sometimes (though not every day). Completely different than before, but I think if you're tired, you should sleep. Baby takes a lot of energy you don't realise, so it's normal to get tired, even if you haven't done anything to write home about.

My iron levels have been checked regularly, all normal.

I take vitamins everyday, have done since day 1.

I'm okay once I'm up but getting up is the most difficult part of my day, it's horrendous.

This is the most patronising thing to say to a woman pregnant for the first time, but really... SLEEP WHILE YOU CAN.

Sorry, I'll go and wash my mouth out now. Currently 25w pregnant with my second and could cry with tiredness. 12 hour sleeps sound like absolute heaven to me Grin
