I am now 22 weeks along and cant seem to ever feel rested. I am constantly exhausted no matter how much or how little sleep I get. I usually stay in bed for 10 hours, but have to get up two or three times a night to use the bathroom, so I should still be getting around 8 hours but I feel like I got none! I wake up and I dont even wanna get out of bed! I have never felt this exhausted ever before! I was wonder how much sleep you all got when you were expecting? and did anything make you sleep better and more soundly? I also wake up frequently during to night and have to then get comfortable again and fall back asleep.

I was always so tired, even if i stayed in bed all day and night. I did find out my iron was terribly low, and had to take suplpements, but only your doctor can advise you on such a thing.

Pregnancy is hard work :) exhaustion can be perfectly normal.

Yeah I am also tired all the time no matter what I do. The blood test showed that I'm not anemic. Guess this is just my bodies way of dealing with the pregnancy. I try and not drink anything after 7pm that way I usually only have to get up once to go to the bathroom. Has anyone had one of those pregnancy pillows they make just for pregnant woman? They are really pricey $80 to $90 here, was wondering if they made any significant difference for anyone?

Maybe limit your liquids after a certain time at night so you don't get up as much? I was always tired which was difficult. I also had a lot of trouble getting comfortable in bed at night. I would have invested in one of those body pillows but then it was too late!

I was like this i'd get up 4-5 times a night, got about 10 hours sleep every night but still felt so tired! I got a blood test and it showed I was anemic, I got some Iron tablets and it helped so much! I wasn't exhausted or tired all the time! :)
