    I'm finding it increasingly difficult to get through the say due to extreme tiredness. Is there anything i can do?? When I'm at home i can nap, but work isn't so easy. Ideas??

    I read somewhere about keeping your protein up so lots of lean meat, but really I think it's just how it is for a while when you're pregnant! Xx

    Today I had to do all the fire test, count all the medication, do the dhole 8 page health and safety audit, spoon feed 3 people, take someone put shopping, test all the water temps, do all the weekly finances. Now I'm home and shattered

    I found upping my vitamin C intake helped loads. Lots of orange juice. Avoid berocca though as that's way too much vitamin c for a pregnant lady.x

    Spatone worked for me. One sachet a day in orange juice. It's iron but gentler on the tummy than pills.

    Nut allergys I assume. How about an alternative snack that's slow releasing energy wise maybe grapes or nut free cereal or buiscuits? Just something to be snacking on thru the day.x

    I'm exhausted just at the thought of all of that! I found I was exhausted even after lots of sleep around weeks 4-8 especially. I do feel such better now, so fingers crossed you will soon too!
